New update of the HxC firmware for Gotek with a full screen OSD file selector !

- Only 2 or 3 wires and a resistor needed, no extra hardware needed ! :)
- No software to run on the machine to see the OSD and select another image !
- Compatible with most PAL/SECAM/NTSC machines : Amiga, Atari ST, Amstrad and many more...
- OLED and rotary are optional.

Yes this can be done on 6128+. You just need to connect the CSYNC and video gotek signal to the motherboard.HxC Firmware installation can be done over a flash floppy flashed gotek with an usb stick.
