I wonder if that can work with CT60. Maybe your buyer pool would be smaller for this one. Still if you're just doing it for fun, it's worthwhile!

I tried to get the Nova and the Eclipse working with the CT60 many years ago. After many months of modifying the source code, the GAL and the adapter, I found out that the CT60 does not allow those cards to work with the CT60, since the CT60 does not implement the full protocol for extension cards as defined by ATARI. :(

A PCB Set costs 30,- Euro incl. Postage Wordwide. For a build up and tested Adapter ask for the Price.

You can build a proper VME Bus ET4000 card for the Atari Mega STE or a Atari TT ...

If I attempted that the amount of smoke I created would change the carbon footprint of a small country.

Nice! I believe something like this would be possible with the Mega ST too.

Any progress on this? I regret selling my Nova Falcon, the Eclipse is faster but fVDI is unfortunately too unstable.

When 6 or 7 People are interested in a Falcon Nova Adapter, I can make a Eagle Layout and Order PCBs ...

Note that the Nova Falcon can only work with 4MB Ram or an Magnum Falcon. 14MB Falcon will not work.

I would be interested, what exactly is a Magnum Falcon? it sucks we can not use our 14MB ram.

The thing with the Nova Falcon is I think that the Magnum Falcon at to the 4MB additional 4MB or 6MB Alternate Ram. So the Nova Falcon has free space to work ...

Yes, the Nova use the address space from 12 to 13Mb IIRC. So 12Mb max on the Falcon if you want to use a Nova. Not sure if there are other RAM-cards than the Magnum or BlowUp FX that can provide this.

Btw I'm interested in one Nova Falcon.

I would love one for my TT030 and Mega STe.

Wouldn't mind one for the Falcon either, but I do have 14mb of ram, but eventually plan on throwing in a CT60e... but was hoping for a SuperVidel run to add onto that. Decisions decisions... pretty awesome when there are enough projects out there that you have to decide!

Hello leech, send me a PM ...

You can buy a PCB Set to build all by yourself or a ready build up and tested Adapter.
