@OlafS25

A4000-Cr? I feel your pain. I didn't know they sold much to private persons, got the impression that most of them were SCALA labeled info-channel systems for hotels etc.

It is used, without it the Vampire cards would not work.

Let vampire enginers mess around figure it out they most likely get around to fix it.

"They" have spent years explaining how nobody needs it, so it is refreshing to see that their opinion at may change, at last.

September'19 Activity Report

Team has been super busy this summer, not drinking caipirinhas nor London mules but working on topics we are all super excited to hear about : Vampire Standalone and V1200. Let's not hold horses anymore and open the starting gates.

GOLD2.12
GOLD2.12 is still in the work and we want to fix a few issues before releasing it in final state. Simo has already posted two Release Candidate builds in forum for people to try it out and we got some feedbacks that we need to handle.

Amiga34
We will be there and have set ourselves quite some big goals for that weekend:
1. Meet nice people
2. Party with nice people
3. Discuss and share our Amiga passion

Gunnar will also be presenting and discussing Vampire on stage on Sunday afternoon. We are all looking forward to measure how much his eyes will be opened. I wouldn't be surprised if he wears sunglasses that day.

Amiga34 is quite a challenge for us since we have things to show and demonstrate there but getting them ready them takes time, which we lack. That event is a milestone for us and we are doing everything we can to achieve it.

More infos about the event : EXTERNAL LINK

Alchimie 13
Next event will be Alchimie 13 in France on 1 to 3 November and a small subset of team will be there, mostly French speakers. For those who couldn't attend Amiga34, they have an opportunity there to get a catch-up session and attend a super event.

More infos about the event: EXTERNAL LINK

Vampire V1200
For the record, we have shown the first working Vampire 1200 V2 prototype at OufParty in June. Since then, work on it continued and another revision of it was made since we hadn't a case to test all mechanical parts. Thing is sometimes better is the enemy of good and we broke the Digital Video Out part in that last revision, meaning another one was needed and delaying things a bit again (two more weeks).

To make a long story short, issue is fixed and a big batch of PCBs and components has been ordered to fulfill our A1200 needs.

Vampire V4
Since June, lot of things happened in team and lot of discussion went on to make sure the Vampire Standalone is a super product and truly a complete new Amiga.

Those discussions made us take some very big decision regarding the future of Vampire Standalone. So many questions have been debated until early in the Morning... Isn't the target level too high for us? Isn't Amiga a dead platform after all? Aren't 68020 accelerators good enough for everybody? What if someone resurrect Cyberstorm designs? What if after all trolls were right since the beginning? Is Steven Seagal really a bad actor? After quickly answering all those, we pushed the button and started to mass produce V4 for general availability Period.

I am very happy and pleased to confirm everybody that the order for a first batch of Vampire Standalone that will target end-users has been placed!

Some very minor changes have been made to the PCB from developers boards you might have seen (mounting holes instead of capacitor holes, removal of 68k socket, optimizing design for solderability, etc.). No feature change, just some adjustment to ease the industrial process.

That first batch will also be special as we will be selling it directly. Idea behind this is to let us start very quickly the engine to produce more. Then, next batches will be running exclusively through resellers.

To make it even more special, those who will get one will get a complete bundle for the price of the card, meaning they will get tested compatible mouse, compatible keyboard, PSU, case and some other goodies. Also, those sales will be only for people attending Amiga34 and we hope to be able to deliver those bundles during the event. More info will come about that soon.

Core side, we are rushing to make sure cards get delivered with a polished core. Our VHDLers and developers are having some kind of "bukkake party" towards our SVN server (gross, disgusting, meh) and that bitch loves that (since majsta is posting articles implying his dick and Brad Pitt, I thought the limit was already passed on so...). Now that you have the picture, understand they are all committing a lot to bring best experience possible on first launch. Happy face!

Conclusion
We finally are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel for V4 and V1200 and we are really looking forward to bring it to the market, after so many months of work. It is still quite stressful since we want it super from the beginning.

Looking forward to the V4 Standalone to be an option to bring live back to an old A3000 case

@ErikBauer

It's exactly the same discussion that was 4-5 years ago, and now it is interesting? How long will it take before it is uninteresting again?

@OneTimer1

The project is mostly targeting consumers, focus is on games and media playback, rather than productivity and software development.

@kolla

The project is mainly hardware (in FPGA design) oriented. What people use it for is up to them.

Be it games/media playback, or productivity/development.

True, but I expect to see a classic compatible MMU implementation in the future with such a clamour from developers. Either that or Vampire specific dev tools part sponsored/sold by A-EON to get into the action 😉

New hardware is a start but fully functional Classic 'miggy replacements are the future (if AmigaOne machines dry up or maybe even if they don't).

Well, I will link a Desktop image Gunnar just shared, and it kinda adds to kollas argument

But it looked so pretty, I figured Id share it. 1280x720 in Truecolor

Nice

Particularly like the Aladdin icon. Is it available from anywhere to download? I think I made my own from a screen grab back in the day but it isn't ideal.

It is not limited by legacy hardware, WinUAE allows 8MB, other FPGA based Amiga chipsets allow more. Ideally, all RAM is chipram.
