Yep, all fixes done.

I gave up trying to take over the world, trying to keep ownership of my own free space is difficult enough :lol: :roll:


I have been working on it all day..And still working on it, I got pretty far then decided to start again and make it even smaller, which resulted in some major rework.. Now I just seem to be creeping around the board moving stuff about trying to get it to all fit without breaking the power planes too much..

It fits in a mega1-4 fine but you can't put the lid on (not that that's a big deal) because a support post hits the jumpers just above the eprom in your photo. If you moved the jumper and had no board above the eprom you could get the lid on. Just an idea.. your most likely to far alone to change. :idea:

@exxos , as you can see the top support comes down to the hole which is almost split by the side of the card. The hole is a little more toward the board in real life but I maximized the camera angle to show the hole the support comes down to.

Support is a little larger than the hole.
