Thanks Hugo.
  FAQ is growing to be informative, answer to most common Qs as well as providing general insight in Vampire and state of Amiga community now and here. I am enjoying working on it, but more brains and hands matter.
  Please support by providing Questions, Answers, Links. Every contrib will be signed.

RTG and ECSWHDLoad (V4 SA and GOLD3 AGA section?) need a heavy testing update, its old as SILVER cores. List of incompatibile titles will be generated too, and is most welcome.
  All text (be it questions, answers, phrases) is WIP and subject of change. Is NOT official until CENSORED by the team and publicly published. Might shrink or split to few documents or website sections.
  Currently, these are sections (expanded by old FAQ ones, and all answers I can gather from forums):
  1. Cases (V4 Vamps)
  2. Compatibile Classic hardware
  3. Expansion port to expand Vampire? (Separate answer for V2 and V4)
  4. Flashing FPGA core (V2 and V4)
  5. How do I get fastest answer from team?
  6. I dont get audio or OCS outpout on DIGITAL-VIDEO (V2 vamps)
  7. Indivision problems (V2 Vamps)
  8. Mouse and Keyboard (V4 Vamps)
  9. My TV cant display DIGITAL-VIDEO Vamp outpouts? (v2 and V4 Vamps)
  10. SAGA drivers for AmigaOS? (V2 and V4)
  11. TV displays Vamp logo but cant boot to a WB resolution, video out of range
  12. USB ports on V4 - Which joysticks can I connect? (V4 Vamps)
  13. What are standalone new Amiga specs?
  14. What are V1200 specs
  1. AmigaOS and other software that supports Vampire 080 MMX
  2. AROS m68k FLOSS on Vampire
  3. Hyperion AmigaOS 3.1.4
  4. Ixemul library
  5. MS DOS and Windows library 386-486 x86 PC? (emulation)
  6. NeoGeo on Vampire (emulation)?
  7. Old AmigaOS software - Can I run Music Maker and very old apps that require KS 1.2, KS 1.3, 512K Chip only, OCS only....
  8. Operating Systems and AmigaOS packs
  9. Photoshop on Vampire? (emulation)
  10. Picasso 96
  11. Web browsers
  1. Descent, Rise of Triad and Duke Nukeum
  2. Diablo 1 and Metal Slug
  3. Frontier
  4. Golden Crown and 1942x
  5. List of compatibile RTG software (last updated)
  6. List of compatibile WHD Load software (last updated)
  7. Myst  and Quake m68k by ClickBoom, Genetic Species
  8. R Shoot R and Metro Siege
  9. Shadow of 3rd moon, Payback 3D and Feeble Flies
  10. Star Wars X Wing and Wing Commander
  11. TFX and Formula 1 GP
  12. WHDLoad slave games running?
  Surely, most interesting news is 080 software list. Currently:

  First of all, ODT version is avail for lovers of FLOSS Libre
  Second, KUDOS and THANK YOU Jakub!
  When V4 arrives, it would be best to test AGA titles and non working ECS titles. Please try Lotus, used to make a lot of trouble on any expanded machine.
    First added a non-working titles to the FAQ itself, while WHDLoad list will remain a separate link and will be updated, THANK YOU!
    On other all-Amigan business, I am trying to create a list of currently existing web resources. PLEASE ADD or NOMINATE FOR REMOVAL with a description! NOTE OS3 m68k RESOURCES ONLY, no MOS/WOS/pUp/OS4
