    Damn. After lost all my data and my own schematics from broken HDD 2,5" 250GB, I must start everything from scratch which I have on my old CD's...
    Life's brutal, but now I have more will to finish it before I lost some more data...
    But now after some changes I plan to start this in that PC case (Lifetec/Medion PC MT4):

    http://www.9lives.be/forum/casemoddi...e-project.html
    It have more space that I need and I can put some extras above 5,25" drives...

    Mini tower Envizage 437-09B is used now by Pegasos II but it's a different story...

    The work is going very slowly, but I think that I'll do my best to finish it...
    The schematic is ready and probably without any errors. As far as I've checked it couple of times...
    The worse thing is to perfectly takes dimensions and measuremetns, where daughterboard should be placed.
    I've called them "Chasing Board" and "Amy Board", because it will be on two boards, connected together.
    This paper printed version have two "boards" mixed together.

    Incredible. What's this ? Connected to a A600 motherboard ? Arf!
    A600HD, A1200 in "home made" tower, A4000T in progress...

    A Zorro II Busboard connected to an A600 - this is a delicious Idea, I look forward to seeing your efforts with this.

    Good luck with you project, if there is anyway I can help please let me know.

    Zetr0, You have right. It's a Zorro II busboard. That idea is sitting in my head since year 2002. It's a long period of time, but earlier I didn't have schematics and infos about Amiga 500/600/2000. Now schematic is almost ready and finished. I must check couple of things and find more time to do this.
    I want to design this in similar way to Micronik line of products for A1200.
    As for now it's designed to fit with ACA630 which I own I take from accelerator only 5 signals which I couldn't get from Agnus or Kickstart Socket.
    All design is based on original Buster Chip from A2000. There isn't any FPGA. I don't have knowledge, skills and equipment to do this on FPGA
    Unfortunately there won't be Video Slot, because there is no space for it.
    And the last slot will be only for short cards without any bracket or it will be cut off. The same reason here - no space...

    Today I've checked how it will look in "3D View" ;P
    See by yourself how it looks on photos

    Now I see that dimensions of Chasing Board are OK. Unfortunately on Amy Board I must move Zorro Slots 3mm toward back of "tower".
    As i mentioned before, now it's designed to fit with ACA630. But if I use SMD socket for Gayle, then all should probably fit with ACA630, Apollo 620, Apollo 630, M-Tec 630, Vampire 600 and maybe something else...

    Sorry, but I can't achieve this in standard A600 case...
    Move over Ricky and Bianca, Pat and Frank Butcher, Tim and Jill "the toolmen" Taylor and all those other pretenders.

    Xanxi and Atreus are a match made in heaven!

    PS. I think your Sabrina project is awesome and a nonsense. Its brilliant
