I'd be interested in that image for sure!
Would you post it?
Using Combian 64 2.8 (with wifi) at the moment, but I'd really like to see this SDL version that boots in 5 seconds... not to mention some of the features that vice uses there, like the keyboard shortcuts that you mention.
I had made a very similar setup, but now I've updated it a bit with your 3d printed files. I started with a very clean breadbin case and a Tynemouth Software keyboard board with included joystick ports. I agree with you. This setup is bliss. I don't really care that it's emulation. The keyboard itself, and classic joysticks along with the ease of use...freezing, saving, dual sid, pal / ntsc. It's the machine I wish my c64 was, back in the day, and more.
