Did this happen yet? Iím not seeing anything on the YouTube link, and google says it is currently 2:30 pm in Switzerland (8:30am US Eastern time).

Did the video not happen or did I misunderstand when the event would take place? Guess Iíll try again for the 6pm slot...

Production of Vampire 1200 and Vampire V4 Standalone starting "hopefully in July" (year not specified)? Or did I misinterpret something? I'm sure the team can clarify.

Standalone and A1200 V4 in July.
So we got a date now.
As well as the (hopefully) first final release of Gold3 which as I know is mandatory for all V4 versions.
So I hope it is also final for V2.

  I ve got two questions.
 
  Since its "Igors A1200" isnt that V2+ with 512MB RAM and using ported V2 core to a bigger Cyclone (RTG, smaller FPU compared to V4 and using onboard AGA, no GOLD3). Surely, GOLD3 core might later become avail, I am speaking of what it is now.
 
  Or is it "true V4 for 1200"??
 
  Other one is how long is estimated*expected time for V2 GOLD3 core, incl. time for backporting from v4/polishing current V2 GOLD3 beta core? (in reality might always take a month or two more).

That would be great 1-2 months.... It´s my only thing i want for V2 500 + to get that gold V3.0, i know i sound like a bitch wynging about Gold 3.0, but this was why i got the Wampire, to se the AGA in my Amiga 500....

Sorry for bad spelling........

Likewise.. I bought an OCS A500 because I could get it cheap and figured with the Vampire V2 I'd be bypassing the onboard chip ram anyhow... So right now I'm pretty limited on what I can play on it... Really need that SAGA support even if just for more chip ram...

You can try the Alpha 3 core. Is already available for v500 and v600. It gives you the aga chipset, the chip memory needed and hdmi output for both video and audio.
  It lacks RTG and FPU.
  You need an usb blaster to load the core
    EXTERNAL LINK  I tested that core a bit some time ago

Cool! I've never been able to find the beta so hadn't been able to try it... Will have to give that a go later today. Thanks!

In watching the videos from the Oufparty it's hard to tell the configuration of the A1200 Vampire card.

Altera a3 (V2) or a5(V4) FPGA
128MB or 512MB of RAM?
Looks like it has an DIGITAL-VIDEO connector and SD card reader?
68080 V3 core?

Could someone verify the specs of the A1200 Vampire card?

Got it all installed on a fresh Coffin install... Not bad!!! Zool 2 AGA is messed up, but all the other stuff I tried worked... You do lose the nice hi-res desktop, but it's SO nice not having to switch between the Vampire DIGITAL-VIDEO and the SCARt output (thankfully I have a SCART->DIGITAL-VIDEO adaptor box that can switch that input by a simple button press, but don't need that anymore!)

This is going to make that A500 SOOO much more useful.
