This issue will occur with new V2 boards sold since Q2 of 2021. 2.16 does not alter the board in any way, so you can flash to a previous core after updating to 2.16.

Hello ,i have the new 2.16 Core Flashed to my Vampire V500 and the result was thats all ist function but all RTG Compatible Demos have red color and disorted graphic !

I flashed back to Core 2.15 with USB-Blaster and now all RTG Demos graphics is OK !

I cant believe thats the Team deliver a Core with such a Problem without testing the 2.16.jic

For the Future is better the Team testing the Cores better bevor make a role out that is a downgrade !

I was under the impression that it is a release candidate and the testing is currently happening in parallel?

This is fully correct. Thanks for helping test it.
If you want to support V2 testing, then you it would be nice if you join our Discord server and join there the test-group. Many thanks in advance.

BTW there is a new updated version for V500 online in the Download section. Please try the new version too.

Yo, I am now max. irritated. Core Update worked for me, but still WHDLOAD game issues. I am thinking that the team concentrate rather on emulator and ported games instead of pure Amiga games. Roll Back is not possible, at least not with Vampire flash. All core are neglected. Thank you. Very much disappointed.

Chris, you should be able to rollback with the new ApolloFlash in the download section.

No,not really...you need Vampireflash 1.14. Apollo Flash 1.15 demands Core 2.16 and above :)

You can roll back to GOLD 2.15 with ApolloFlash 1.15 as it supports GOLD 2.15 and higher.

Chris, I'm sorry to hear that you personally have problems with WHDLOAD.
   
But we can not reproduce this here.
Me and others have tested the games which you reported.
E.g  "Lotus" and "Legend of Faerghail" using V500 and Release GOLD2.16 and we could not find any trouble at all.
I've successfully finished a number of races in "Lotus" without any trouble. Also I successfully played Faerghail for quite a while until my heroes fell in a heroic battle against a horde of unfriendly goblins. Could it be that something in your WHDLOAD setup is broken or mis-configured?
   
If you need help to test your WHDLOAD setup, then I would propose that you join our DISCORD channel. Please join there, Debug work is much faster there. You can use this forum but please open a new thread as WHDLOAD config discussion, is unrelated to this release.
Maybe you can also provide more information with your report?
What OS release/distro are you using? which WHDLOAD version? which SLAVE version? What configuration settings?
You know any the info which could help to reproduce your report. Many thanks in advance.

   
Regarding Amiga games, have you tried out the New ApolloInvader game on your V500?

Gunnar and team,
   
I'm reporting an issue with Shadow Warrior with new core:
   
The text is difficult to read and the colors are messed up.
I can upload some pics if you wish.
 
Perhaps this is related to Antonio's message regarding RTG demos. Could be that RTG modes have an issue. I have not tried to examine further.
   
   
Thank-you.

Hello Angelo,

can you please be so kind and provide a little more information?
Which card model?
Which core 2.16 or 2.16B?
Which OS?
Which RTG driver version?
Which P96 version?

Maybe you can ping me on Discord with the information?

Many thanks in advance

Dear Gunnar, thanks for your kind reply. I will check it out and will provide more information on discord as soon as possible. Sorry for my upset writing yesterday. Today it was my first working day after a long break :) and my wife was pushing me to go to bed before noon :)))

Hi Chris,
I could not update from 2.15 to 2.16 without using a USB blaster.
When you use VampireFlash or ApolloFlash to update the 2.15 core you receive an error message about not finding the correct rom location.

If you flash your own rom after upgrading to 2.16 using ApolloFlash then that works OK.

Hi again,
I found out that with Gold 2.16 still the WhDload Game Gods still does not work. Whatever I do.

Moreover, I was lucky and shot an Firebird V4+, but here with latest core Lotus 1 does not work. When you start a race, a blackscreen appears. This same failure I remember with my V2 some years ago ;).

Please check 2.12 x10 for V2+. This is the most stable core and all games work.

For Firebird the game Jaguar xj220 also not working, but on V2+ 2.12. Just my 2 cents...

Lotus works fine for me.
What OS distro do you use?
Did you install WHDLOAD yourself?

If you need to use x10 instead the normal x11, then this sounds like you have a bad V2 card.

Hi Gunnar, I use latest Coffin R60. Also before I updated to latest WHDload Version. It did not work. Jaguar XJ220 crashes, once I start my engine :). It actually then crashes the whole machine where the V4 FB shows the colour check screen over and over again. Lotus 1 has always when you start a race a black screen.

No, I do not. I can run also x11 or x12, but then Jaguar XJ220 runs to fast and not matching original game speed. Stable was maybe not the right desription. Sorry. Please support here.

I tested Gods with GOLD 2.16 and it worked fine. If you have any games that may run faster than they should or have problems, try adding "NoCache" to the tooltypes for the games executable.
