As announced I soldered the SD-RAM daughter board today. Thank you Sorgelig for the great documentation and photos. Being a Noob when it comes to SMD soldering, I had some trouble, but with some persistence and an USB inspection microscope I got it working
. I went for the horizontal setup.
I ran all memory test core Sorgelig kindly provided. The results where as expected. 60 MHz, 120 MHZ, 130 MHz and 140MHz worked without any red marks. 150 MHz I get the first 32MB test run marked as red and all following marked green. 167 MHz is an absolute not got
- this was expected. Actually I was surprise it worked at all
Anyway here are some Vids:https://youtu.be/XbhbmwGJuIE

NES Core (20170712)
Ok - So I must say I really like the MISTer more and more thank you Sorgelig for the porting of the cores!
Here are some thing I notices (really early observations -all v20170712):
NES core works absolutely great - just like on MIST with all nice enhancements of the MISTer (e.g. joystick button assignments)
SamCoupe core works absolutely great - just like on MIST with all nice enhancements of the MISTer (e.g. joystick button assignments)
Minimig AGA core works great -Hard disks work and Whdload also work but there are some issues - here are the issue I noticed:
-the disk drives do not read any adfs (so this is a bummer)
-the configurations are not saved
-when I load old configurations from my MIST the configurations appear to get loaded, but the OSD stop working and will not be displayed
Workbench 3.1 whenever I open a window there are graphical glitches that follow the mouse pointer
here is a video showing the issues:https://youtu.be/hhjHMt0XUHo

Still very impressive to see AGA working on the MISTer in this "early" stage.
