  1. @LaPorta Did you email him? There's a form you fill out, there's no direct buy option.
  2. Just out of curiosity, suppose someone clones the SWIM chip; would it be possible to allow daisy chaining on a Mac with a modified SWIM like it does on the Apple IIgs? Or is the Apple IIgs fundamentally different in how it interacts the floppy drives, making that type of behavior not possible on a Mac?
  3. @techknight All the SWIM chips are up on eBay for $90+ a piece.
  4. @LaPorta If it's simple copy protection such as fake bad sectors, then DiskDup can do it by copying the bad sectors as bad sectors. This is important because some copy protection schemes look for bad sectors in specific spots as their form of copy protection. So a clean copy where you ignore bad sectors but don't copy them can result in the game no longer working. However, if it's more clever copy protection such as unique partition tables, writing in areas of the disk not normally accessible, or still having data in sectors that are "bad," the best solution is to use a flux disk
  5. @jeremywork Wow, there're so many interesting cards in that auction. Is that EMS Memory card a NuBus memory card? I've seen a few NuBus memory cards in the past. Some allow you to side step the 128MB memory limit by creating a RAM disk, Gworld disk, or repurposing it as "VRAM."
  6. @micheledipaola Holy cow! Those are some serious freaking video cards. I really hope you can get the software. I'd love to see the BUG Pickles XA v2 as well. I think this pretty much proves these little cards can push those insane resolutions. Absolutely at the top of my list holy grail NuBus video card. I want a BUG Pickles XA v2 with dual memory cards.
  7. @jessenator Quite a few LC PDS ethernet cards had a PLCC socket for an FPU. They could double as both ethernet and math coprocessor.
  8. @cheesestraws How difficult would it be to also make this a 32-bit enabler for dirty ROMs? You could then consolidate the 32-bit enabler with the 32-bit enforcer, since in actuality you'd need both anyway.
  9. It can if it's an SE FDHD or SE SuperDrive. You can upgrade an SE to an SE FDHD / SuperDrive by replacing the IWM chip with a SWIM chip. I think there were talks about creating a SWIM chip clone.
  10. I like the SE as an SE/30 upgrade because it has space for dual floppies. With a SCSI2SD or 2.5" drive, you can easily fit a HDD in there while still keeping both floppy drives.
