Minimig v1.1 motherboard.

Minimig is an exciting new project that is a modern day re-implementation of the OCS chipset. Supplied with printed manual.

Kick ROM, games and software are quickly loaded by the MMC card slot. Software and games on an MMC card can be browsed with the on-screen menu.

Note: Legal Kick ROM image required- Kick ROM version 1.x, 2.x and 3.1 supported for wide compatibility with older games and software.

It should be noted that previous versions of the core were able to use kick files from Amiga Forever. The latest turbo core, however, didn't incorporate this. I believe the next update should return this function. Lots of folks own Amiga Forever and may not have access to a real Amiga and the source for a "legal" rom file. Using AF roms simplifies this.

You can extract the "full" core from Amiga Forever.

Simply run Amiga Forever on your PC and then from within the Amiga emulation run the ROM extraction software (found on Aminet). You should end up with a standard non-encrypted ROM dump file which you can use on the Minimig.

Amigakit should have Minmig boards at the end of December (2008) :-)

Are these more of the original batch of v1.1 boards produced by Acube or are they from a second production run?

I am also waiting for a board in this batch from Amigakit. My understanding is that they are the same Acube produced 1.1 board, however, they already have the latest updated PIC firmware.

I'm not sure if there are any other enhancements from the original batches. I would guess, no.

ACube told me they are the same as the previous batch. Well, I hope so, otherwise my cases, which are getting made right now, won't fit the board and this would be a nightmare.
