Nice board and project @terriblefire.

Wish I had the time to get back onto the Blitter, MMU and GLUE boards we are working on for the ST.
Do one at a time. dont try to do them all at once. Which is the hardest to get hold of?

You are right doing one at a time is the best option and the Blitter should be the one to finish off first. :)

I think it might be time for me to offload my supply of Agnus chips I've been hoarding :)

Nice board!

It's a shame that all those level converters are necessary.

Maybe a two PCB solution would be more preferable?
(Isn't there a connector that you can use that only ads a few mm??)

Count me in if you have a working prototype :-)

So i had a bit of an issue getting the ReAgnus up and running in a toolchain. I ended up adding code to fomu-flash tools to allow it to write to the SPI roms i got from RS.

https://github.com/im-tomu/fomu-flash/pull/10

After that I still had no output from the FPGA even though i had all the tools setup. Then i noticed...

Now i have the FPGA up and i can program it with a Pi.
