It is really fun to hack on the minimig port - sort of relaxing
Although I currently have a ton of other work, I always come back to the minimig code to update this or that. And it also brings back some Amiga architecture knowledge lost in almost 15 years since I've done any Amiga programming
But, I digress ...
It's good that at least two persons agree with me about the filters and joystick emulation
I'll try to move the joystick emulation back to cursor keys and at the same time disable the keyboard buttons - I think it is OK if the joystick emulation can be switched on/off with the NumLock key.
Does anyone else have any problems with the SD card in the new build? MMrobinsonb5 reported that some SD cards that used to work before don't anymore. Anyone else with any problems?
Anyway, after cleaning the code a little bit and some work on the firmware and build process, the current version will be ready for a proper release. I'm almost done with the flash bootloader, which will then load the control firmware from SD card, so it won't be necessary to reprogram the flash chip each time a new firmware is released.
For the future, the plan is to upgrade the SDRAM controller and cache, which could bring the TG68K speed in the 68040 range. And then, *maybe* it will be possible to put some AGA code in the design, but I still have to study this.
