Don't Panic. Please wash hands.

    Indeed I did verify the firmware was updated both from doing that step and seeing the date change on the OSD as well.

    Alrighty well it's something to try so I'll order some parts for the new year and give it a go.

    Thank you for the advice and I'll let you know how it goes.

    Hi Jens,

    Just wanted to say I tried the latest update for the ECS2 on my board and sadly the joystick constantly pushing up is still a problem for me unfortunately. Hopefully one day it will get figured out, I definitely understand you're a busy man and well 2020 and all that too.

    Thanks again for your continued efforts

    Happy holidays and a prosperous new year!


    I figured I'd bump this thread since I have been reading in the german forums about a similar problem. I just wanted to clarify that his situation is not the only one. I also have an A500 that has joystick issues when using the Indivision ECSv2.

    Hi Jens,

    Just a quick question, does the purchase of the ACA500+ give you the license for upgrading the kickstart/wb to 3.1.4 and beyond? Or is that a separate purchase from Hyperion?

    Thank you


    Hi Jens,

    Sorry to bother but just wanted to check in to see if you've had any time to look into this?

    Thank you!

    I haven't messed around with it myself as I haven't got a good tool to remove the gary adapter from the ACE2 install and I don't know if you can use the other Agnus chips with that gary adapter in use.

    Just as an addendum, I've noticed it happening with Wrath Of The Demon, Castlevania and a few more.

    I noticed in the German forums there was mention an rbf file update from January, however I just purchased the ECS v2 in the last couple of weeks. Would it have that FPGA load that you are speaking of?




    ECS V2, ACA500plus, AC1233, ACE2

    NTSC Rev 5 Amiga 500

    So I noticed trying to play Shadow Of The Beast (1, 2 or 3) from WHDLoad or from disk that when I'm using the Indivision that I'm getting up directions even with no joystick connected.

    It's fairly constant and disabling various items from the chain (AC1233 or ACA500plus) changes the nature of how often it happens but still happens. The only time it stops it seems is when reduce everything back pure 68000 at 7mhz. I have also tried a few of the joystick testers and other games and I haven't found other situations where it's apparent. So far just during those Shadow Of The Beast games.

    However if I replace the ECS V2 with the original OCS Denise then I have no problems at any speed at all. I did some research and noticed that in the German forums there was talk about timing issues that could cause this and it was resolved. I guess a further timing change is necessary for the NTSC Rev 5 board perhaps?

    Let me know if there is any other information you need from me.


    Hi Jens,

    Had a look at the FS and there was indeed remnants of an Amiga FS and was likely tripping up the ACA500plus. It was reformatted but it wasn't zeroed out so that latent data was still being read. So I zeroed out the CF and then reformatted and all seems to be good now.

    Sorry to bother, thanks again


    I don't believe it was formatted Amiga, although the two cards I'm using right now are exactly the same so it's possible I may have done the WB install and then switched them at some point when I messed something up. I did format it as FAT afterwards though and built the partition label up myself so I wouldn't think there's anything valid to boot from.

    I haven't tried a different card yet since it's just a relatively minor thing. I'll give a couple of other cards a shot tonight and see what happens.


    Hi Jens,

    I don't know if it's expected behaviour but it's tripped me up a couple of times since getting my ACA500plus (which I love by the way, thank you).

    If a CF card is in AUX slot when trying to reboot my A500 (rev 5 NTSC), it just hangs at a black screen never seeming to do anything. However once the card is removed then it happily boots without issue and otherwise everything about the AUX slot performs wonderfully.
