PiStorm32 reset and Elbox PC Key-1200
« on: August 24, 2023, 09:57:56 PM »
I've set up my PiStorm32 with the stealth firmware but I'm unable to initialise it with a long-key-hold reset.

I currently use a PC Key-1200 with an AT keyboard and the CTRL-Win-Win keys reset the Amiga but it triggers the signal even whilst the keys are held, whereas a real Amiga keyboard will only reset once the keys are released.

Does anyone here use a PiStorm32 with any other keyboard adapter which allows the reset/stealth firmware sequence to operate correctly?
Thanks.

I have a workaround so can now happily run stealth mode.

I have a hardware reset fix and using the reset feature with a switch on my tower gives the same result as ctrl-A-A; holding the switch for 4 seconds reboots and disabled the PiStorm32. Thought I'd share here just in case it helps anyone.
