So how about it?
Who will be the first to put a bigger FPGA in the Minimig so that developers can get to play around with AGA and soft 68K support?
What about the C-One FPGA Extender?
It has a soft 68K, and a second soft 68K in place of the PIC that controls the SD card, all implemented in the FPGA, plus the full minimig core w/ the latest enhancements.
In total the board has 3 FPGA's on it... As it stands the C-One FPGA Extender (CycloneIII w/ 24000 LE's) is only 65% full.... a ton of room left for improvements to come. It is possible that they will be exploring integrating Catweasel floppy functionality, and virtual hard drive support. None of these improvements are guarantees, but I would expect more to be done on the platform in the future. We'll see what happens.
I'm not sure if AGA is a possibility without additional hardware.. (Anyone?) Also, what about Clone-A, which was prototyped using a C-One board? I don't have high hopes that this will be offered as an upgrade path for existing owners... I'm just not sure.
The FPGA extender on the C-One is VERY new, so there are a few bugs still being worked out... You can also boot it up as a VIC20, a C64 (PAL or NTSC) w/ Real Stereo SID Chips, IEC port, etc etc, or other cores. I have recently played Space Invaders and Donkey Kong on my C-One also. Not to mention all of the Amstrad stuff (Which I don't personally use, but its there!)
The Newboot menu looks good, boots cores FAAAST, and you can have a full library of cores available right at power-on, so you can switch platforms without changing out your memory card.http://www.c64upgra.de/c-one/
