Re: Raspberry 500 / Amiga Pi ?

First up! Olaf you are a star m8 :)

I am blown away with the two amiga 500's... Mine well, I have hit a brick wall with trying to fit everything and keep messing something up. I need a new a500 base plastic/case so I can start again.

Happy Christmas to all :)

Re: Raspberry 500 / Amiga Pi ?

Excellent :) cant wait to see the pictures!

With the bios issue, I guess this is nothing to worry about on the pi board! I may decide to take the leonardo and hook up a c64 keyboard instead. I have a dead c64 breadbin here crying out for a pi mod.

Re: Raspberry 500 / Amiga Pi ?

Sorry guys I am a bit gutted with this! I tested olaf's revised sketch and it has now made the keyboard brilliant! It has really sped it up :) But :( I just cannot get into the bios using the leonardo... I have a pc here that powers the usb ports in standby mode but the moment I turn off or restart ...

Re: Raspberry 500 / Amiga Pi ?

I am not bothered about the netbook, it was just a testbed thing. I really do need to access the bios using this keyboard solution or I am stuck again lol. I have a Zotac mini-itx board and I am hoping the usb ports are powered in standby mode... well thats my thinking anyway! I have a gigabyte boar...

Re: Raspberry 500 / Amiga Pi ?

Can somebody please confirm if this will work at the bios level on a pc? I have been putting this together on a netbook and I could not get into the bios using the amiga keyboard.

I have yet to test it on a proper motherboard.

Thanks :)

Re: Raspberry 500 / Amiga Pi ?

Anyway I will crack on and finish that one and try out the keyboard. It has been along time since I had a working a500, my first amiga was an a500 1.3 with the ...

Re: Raspberry 500 / Amiga Pi ?

Finally I have a working a500 keyboard thanks to you guys :) Silly little things like me not putting files in the correct places led to me tearing my hair out trying to verify and compile stuff. Then I traced my wiring and found the data and clock were reversed lol, kept getting errors with usb devi...

Re: Raspberry 500 / Amiga Pi ?

Guys, im reading about something to do with adding a jumper from pin2 to ground on the leonardo, this is supposed to stop the board getting stuck in keyboard mode. Will this need to be done for the a500 keyboard stuff? are the commands in the a500 keyboard sketch as im not sure. Also I have been pic...

Re: Raspberry 500 / Amiga Pi ?

Am I right in assuming I will need another Leonardo board to have the amiga keyboard and joystick ports or can I just wire everything up on one board?

I am practically ready to start putting this all together now but if I need another Arduino I need to order it asap!

Re: Raspberry 500 / Amiga Pi ?

I bought the keyrah for that job! But I just dont like the a1200 solution they came up with. I suppose there was not much choice due to how the thing attaches to the a1200 motherboard, its a pita as these ribbon/membraines are fragile and I think mine is fubard already, tested it months ago and it w...

I have a plan to d...
