Hey guys. I recently acquired one of the ReactiveMicro TWGS cards, clocked at 16MHz. It's pretty darn sweet.
However, there is a problem in the ribbon cable that goes between the card and the CPU socket. Intermittent connection. It works if I bend the ribbon cable a certain way, but it's not reliable.
Anyway, the manual says to put the card in slot 3, and indeed that's the only place it will fit with the stock CPU cable. However, the fan on the card gets in the way of slot 4, which is where I need to keep my Phasor. It's a ROM3 box, so I can disable the built-in mouse card in slot 4, since I don't use it in IIe mode, but can still have a working mouse in GS/OS (unlike with the ROM1 boxen).
So I'm kinda thinking maybe I can make a little bit longer cable for the CPU socket, and put the card in slot 2 instead, leaving the built in serial card in slot 2 enabled, and thus free slot 4 back up for the Phasor. Do any of you know if this will work, or does the TWGS *have* to be in slot 3 for some reason?
