This turtle speed thing has been asked couple of times. e.g the slave file of 'Frontier - Elite II' disables the cache by default, so WHDLoad will run on turtlemode (Vamp's LED lit red). To run Frontier on the full speed you need to force 'Cache' on from the WHDLoad setting window.

Thanks for the update Simo. My V1200 is on the way - is there also a beta core available? Thanks

About WHDLoad, how to get this selection window to appear?

In S:WHDload.prefs remove semicolon front of Expert. Personally I like to have a global Quit Key for all WHDLoad items, so I have set QuitKey=$59, which is a raw-keycode for F10. Some WHDLoad items needs a Kickstart ROMs. They need to be in DEVS:Kickstarts -folder. Note that every Kickrom needs the .RTB file, which can be find from Aminet's skick346.lha package.

Many WHDLoad items needs ExpChip option to run properly but in case of Elite you can switch it to the Cache, because Elite is well coded and can run at the full throttle.

Today I had lot of time for testing. I installed latest GoldCore 2.12 X11 on my Amiga 600. The core works pretty well, no problems with videos like previous versions. Games works well too

I installed the new core via the usb blaster, works great, even though x10 was flashed, its faster. old Amispeed/sysinfo reported 040 w 318mhz, new one says 347!, reg sys info more mips and more dhrystones... great Job Team Apollo!  i DID have one lag issue with Riva, but then used the "updated" from the Extras080 folder and no more issues.  did a Spatch on the whichamiga for the whichamiga080 and its super nice to see the AC68080 listed.    again, great job!

Simo: the v1200 x13 core is very unstable on my 1200. Is there an update on v1200 cores?

Hello

I decided to give a chance to new core version. I have installed 2.12RC3 using exe file. Then I have copied vampiregfx.card into Libs\Picasso96 drawer and changed value VideoMemSize to 0. All looks ok, but when i choose any RTG resolution I have "no Input" on my monitor, so looks I have only Amiga RGB output available. My Amiga is A2000 with cpu Adapter, and megachip. For now I have back to 2.11 which is also very stable in my opinion.

Does anyone has report you such problem??
