It is a good idea to change the connector, even putting a flat cable can be?.

That's the plan :)
Cards will be installed in tiers. At the top of the tower floppy drive (or two).

FlexiBridge yet turned in FrankenBridge ;)

I have a question concerning the rights of ownership ZX Spectrum Emulator.
As long as I'm doing something for myself it's no problem.
Whom possibly I need to ask for permission to disseminate the project ?
Because it's not my work - it's just a clone.
Does anyone here is able to answer this question ?

Probably you can sell the emulator out of legal problems if it lacks the Spectrum Rom. Once purchased the customer is able to put it inside if he owns a real Spectrum.

This is not the original ROM from ZX Spectrum.
But a good idea :)

From this view the original Emulator are also illegal :-) Especially because removed the original copyright message.
In the 4.x ROM I put back the original message, just because I more like it :-)
As I see the original Spectrum ROMs are available in the net, and also included in all Spectrum emulator softwares. I guess the Amstrad are allowed it if you keep the original copyrights.

Anyway possible to put Flash ROM to the card, and user can upload the ROM what he want to use.

I got the Emulator, and it is working, loading games from SD Card :-D
I very like it, it is much better looking than the original!

Only one note: RB0 don't needed, with original Bridge are don't care, but with with other sockets (for example the Hungarian Bus Extension card) make short circuit with 9V and GND :oops:

Therefore, there is RB0, not a permanent connection.
This configuration is for a standard single bus bridge.
Have fun :)

With regards the ZX Spectrum ROM, from what I can remember, AMSTRAD made this freely distributable.

As long as you are not profiting from the ROM then you should be fine as you would ONLY be charging
people for the board, your design and construction time and then supplying the ROM free on top.

Hopefully you will get some more of these made because, I agree with Zozo, they do look good without a
case and I would be interested..

Now I have 3 pieces for sale by 50 EUR per unit. Shipping to all European country 5 EUR.
And I still have number 1, my first launched. Maybe someday I'll do the bidding ;)
If there are more people willing, I can order additional PCBs.
