Lots more testing going on with the JagSD at the moment. Ironed out a load of weird issues and got a lot of homebrew stuff loading up as well now. Here's a 6MB ROM in action for your viewing pleasure... 😀

New shell design for the Lynx SD Slim! It sortof looks like an Atari 400. 🤔

This one features a push-push microSD socket, rather than the push-pull one in the old Lynx SD. Gives a slightly cleaner look!

I've had a little time to relax now the JagSD is largely complete and being tested, so I've redesigned the LynxSD to allow games to load quicker and will create a new SLS case which will fit in the Lynx 1 & 2. Shouldn't take long to knock this one out. 😀

@A3rgan I still think the Jaguar version of Doom is the best of this console generation! I was only playing it earlier today while testing the Jaguar SD. 😄 I can't get used to playing it using a joypad, though. I really need a mouse and keyboard.

Finally, I seem to have a firmware for the JagSD which detects the correct memory timings for the Jerry 1.0 or 1.1 chips and sets the custom chip correctly! Playing through a load of games on the K serial Jag now. All good so far!

The JagSD is getting ever closer. I have a firmware which is compatible with Jerry 1.0 and 1.1 chips by setting a bit on the custom chip. My next problem is -- how can I detect if I'm running a 1.0 or 1.1 Jerry to I can auto-select?! Harder than it sounds!

My OCD need for things to be done properly is at volume 11 looking at this image. Must... rewire...

This is how we used to make colours on 8bits back in the day which didn't exist! The brain is ace.
All the balls are the same colour. Brown. 🤯

Ok, so we're supposed to be well into summer now on the UK. Just got absolutely soaked out on the bike. What the hell!? It's wetter than winter. And not far off as cold. 🙄

Finally I think the JagSD is in a state I can send out for some testing. Initial microcontroller and FLASH programming on the custom programmer board over USB then firmware and menu update via the microSD. All updates working nicely and all secured. Now I can sleep. 😜
