Hello all,
I currently have an Amiga 500 in a Bodega Bay case, I also have an Amiga 2000 that has some goodies installed.

I have a GOTEK drive coming to me soon and I'm considering taking the A500 out of the case and run it old school. Thinking of this because the 2000 is a more utility computer and I want to use the 500 strictly as a gaming PC.

Anyway, how many of you run the GOTEK as DF1 and how does it work for you? I know some games have issues but hear it's only a few.

Thanks in advance!

I have an external Gotek as DF1:
and it works fine with DOS disks...

But not with NonDos (Trackloaders)
as they expect to be in DF0:

when i was testing an A500 a while back DF0: was broken so I used my external drive DF1: I had a hard time finding any game to load from DF1: I would think most require DF0:

even F18 Interceptor looks for DF0: even when loaded from workbench.
I'm guessing most if not all track loading games will look for DF0:

Does the DF0: DF1: CIA pin swap trick actually work for this?
