Um, a Digital Upgrade Download Code implies that the purchase of the hardware, is the purchase of the entirity of the final memory capacity hardware, but which has has customers money spent on in reducing its operational capacity, to be unlocked on further customers money?

Which register bit in firmware needs setting using Barry Walkers Poke to unlock the extra address decode lines?

I always thought this was Amiga, not PC, Sorry.

Nice piece of kit, given the horrendous restrictions of the marketplace.

Nice card for reasonable price!


However, artificial limitations in firmware... strange.

9MB->33MB upgrade is 15,- EUR
9MB->63MB upgrade is 22,- EUR

Upgrading from 21MHz to 28MHz and from mid-memory to higher memory is also possible, but I haven't decided on prices yet. All depends on the level of automation that I can implement.

Sales of these codes cannot start yet, as some EU tax details aren't covered yet (new EU laws about taxing download/digital products). Also, it wouldn't make sense to sell them before the actual card is there, as the serial number of the card must be entered to find out the license code.

Kolla: If it's cracked, it will just be cracked for a single card, and for the next, you need to do all the work again. Hardly worth the trouble for just over 40,- EUR.

Strange Indeed. Both clock speed and extra memory will cost extra even though it exists in hardware. I am still a bit peeved about the AGA MKII limitations. Two years later and it still has many display issues. The MKI (VGA only) is by far superior in compatibility and usefulness (the last part was a bit off topic, sorry :)

The firmware using 8mb will be a direct translation of the maximum allowed for the 020 chip, so it's a simple firmware

Whereas flashing it with the 32meg or 64 mb firmware will require different coding to handle the memory multiplexing.

So all Jans is doing is getting people to pay for the development of more complex firmware. Also means those who want a cheap 8meg card won't need to pay for the expensive 64 meg card.

@TheAMIgaOne

Not necessarily. These boards have a proper 68020 on them instead of the cut down 68EC020 that's built into an A1200. That means it has a full 32-bit data bus on it, just like the 68030, and it can access all the RAM without multiplexing, bank switching or whatever.

Sounds like a great product, and a really good price for the base configuration.

Wow, that's a great idea.

I see people are complaining about this but clearly the alternative is to charge more for the product or not have this product at all.

If it's going to cost another $45 bucks to get 60Mb of ram and a faster CPU on a $99 card who would complain. It just lets Jens move on to make is Amiga Reborn project :)

Cheers,
Bill

I think I'll be buying one of these as soon as I have made room for my A1200 and C64 to be permanently set up, It would be nice if we could buy it with what ever options we choose from new though, the tax laws wouldn't have any bearing on that, I wouldn't think.
