    OK slowly getting on with it managed to get the different Amiga cores to come up but with a catch it will only allow one change then the Unamiga OSD just refuses to allow changes after that figured out I could save that one setting to config which you get 4 slots but cant find how to change the osd or the config file outside of the unamiga anyone figured it out yet?

    Got my Unamiga working in a very diy cardboard box, but it works Do you have some more information on how to get other cores installed to it (what files worked for you)? I would really like a A500 core going, i got a USB Blaster if that is needed or do you only need the files on the sd card ? Thanks for any possible help here

    Hi Guys
    OK I have managed to config my unamiga with ecs ocs aga 68010 68000 68020 and different ram sizes but never bigger than the 20mb it starts out with unless you add 1.5mb slow ram so you could with the Fast ram have a total of 23.5mb that 2mb 16+4mb and 1.5mb in total.

    has the core I use now but not been able to get anyother computer cores to load so far so if anyone has done please put a how to guide here.
    Just seen the 3rd A500 Minimig it looks awesome and has wifi and what looks like a usb header too wow..

    I am not on Twitter so if you find anything useful please let us Know have fun

    Finally got my Unamiga + header v. 1.4 installed into a 500 donor. It seems to be OK, compatibility is not nearly as good as the minimig MiSTer core -- I suspect this is an old core. A few other bummers:

    (1) The 500's power and floppy drive LEDs don't work. That's a real shame. There are headers on the board for power and floppy lights, but the 500 sends these over the keyboard cable.

    (2) The key reset combo on this is CTRL+ALT+ALT instead of CTRL+AMIGA+AMIGA. WTH? That seems like a little oversight.

    (3) The core's floppy select menu is painful. You can only scroll line by line, not by page. So if you have a subdirectory with lots of floppy images, better be patient scrolling. If you use HDF and WHDload, it won't be nearly as painful for you.

    Just another note, if you are going to use Kickstart 1.3, it needs a 512kb ROM file. It just hangs on a 256kb ROM file. Derp!

    Anyway, it's a pretty good little FPGA Amiga. I'm afraid it's going to go in the drawer though because of these issues.

    Little update and a read of Mattsofts points
    there is an upto date core and it uses the same core as the MIster FPGA I have had it working with all cores and the 1.3 was just a renamed one from my WINUAE collection of Roms. the Floppy side yeah its a pit of a pain but using the Tiny Laucher was as easy a solution as you could ask for I think plus with the OS available as well its just the same as any other Miggy. I have both the Mister and the Unamiga and to be fair I dont need both so I will be selling my Unamiga board but as a way to get into the Minimig experience it was great fun.

    with My Mister now in a working C64 Case its fun to use and has the added extra of working with the Keyboard via the Keyrah v2b
