Core testings

Last few days I m doing lot of testings regarding core implementation into the current design. For now Amiga starts booting and passes first few stages of hardware testings and starts loading Kickstart. Integrated core is capable of loading internal ROM like you can see on image, but somehow it is unable to finish reading from Kickstart. Best way to investigate what is wrong here is to print signal states and investigate everything on paper. It may take some time but I hope that I will find a problem and solve it. On the image shown you can notice that I have integrated ASCII characters to get some kind of image on Amiga screen. Main difference between old boot testings is that this boot image is loaded with softcore NOT by MC68K. So from this stage we have working FPGA Accelerator :)
