Once you’ve updated the schematic and it passes ERC, save the network, update any components associations with their part libraries, reimport the components, and then save the net again.
Load the PCB in PCBnew and bring in the new net. It will have errors but you can save it then export it to FreeRouting.net autorouter.
Once the updated PCB is loaded in FreeRouting.net highlight any violations (they’ll show up in magenta) so you can delete those. Then you can manually route or autoroute the missing traces. Save the PCB Specctra session and then re-import it back into PCBnew.
This will fix the trace route issues. Good luck and have a nice day!
That would be great Malcolm.
Sorry the e-mail below is confusing. The schematic is actually the corrected schematic I did in KiCad. You need to take this make a .net and optimize the layout. The changes to the original board are fairly minimal but I could not “patch” the actual final layout so it looks like one has to start from the beginning each time!
I am happy to do the PCB updates.
I started, have the schematic done, but I have not updated the actual schematic (because I am slowly learning KiCad it will take time). I right now gotten side-tracked doing and writing up of the build on the V2 80286 board. That is almost done, but now I have a new prototype 80386 + 32MG RAM set of boards.
I ‘m attaching the schematic. If somebody else can do it great.

Did anyone make the changes to this board? It sounded like John at least may have started to.
