Hi,

Does anybody know, how the MiST board can be integrated into the new A1200 case?
There is little information on the a1200.net website about the MiST.
Pictures show, how the MiST can be mounted, but how can the 3 MiST buttons in front of the MiST be accessed? Will I need to open the trapdoor each time, when I want to load an ADF image? There isn't an F12 key either to show the minimig menu.

I suspect the easiest is to just get some other, similar, push buttons, that you mount wherever you like on the case, and stretch cables to the MIST board, attach them in parallel with the mounted buttons. Likewise, you need various break out cables for all the ports.

Also, at least for now, for keyboard, you need a Keyrah, http://wiki.icomp.de/wiki/Keyrah_V2

Ideally (IMO) the menu trigger should be configurable in mist.ini, certainly something that can be fixed.

Btw - It's funny how much stuff you can really fit inside an A1200 case today :)

I think it will take some time, until the complete case is finished, the bare cases are still not in production. Then the keycaps are needed, and then the complete new keyboard. It can easily take another year or so, until everything is ready.

I hope somebody will build some kind of adapters for the MiST buttons until then. Ideally, the 3 Buttons should be placed, were the floppy drive is expected.

Until then, I will use my PC keyboard. Indeed, the MiST+MinimigAGA is nearly perfect already, some small graphic gliches have to be fixed, that keep me off playing some games.
The only thing that is really missing is the color "Commodore Beige" :-)

Well, you can order them here, they fit perfectly in the upper left corner of the MiST:

Oh nice! I would want a black one, or transparent, with just the rainbow checkmark on it, and nothing else - I will send them a request :D
