On badside I see Amitens production "Dreams of Rowan" has failed kickstarter. Will there be a new campaign?

I saved for later to watch. A bit of struggle to follow sometimes due to his lack of mastery of english language but much appreciated anyways.
Still struggling with mine :)

The Amiga community is more and more getting solidly behind the Vampire. The naysayers are less and less.

  Yes, Amiten show is in exclusive Spanglish. But since we have Amigans of different nationalities, backgrounds etc. is always good to see an effort and excersise in mutual aid.

Nagsayers are down to Kolla, and even he has v2 vamp and notices that cores do improve. There are always "to do things" but I wonder what Kolla has to say of e.g. OS4 development.

While v2 Vamp was "hard to swallow" in wiping down accelerator market, I hope v4 will bring more unity (as avail to more Amigans) plus via official dealership and more software contributors.
 
Standalone, as first new "chipset Amiga" since A1200, should really give us the wings. Provided enough can be supplied :-)

Kolla is funny sometimes in his relentlessness but his arguments are not without merit sometimes. Enemy is a strong word but sometimes they will tell you things you need to hear that friends won’t.

He has a long memory and has pointed out some inconsistencies about Vampire’s goals and objectives. He saves everything.

Sometimes my most irritable clients push me out of my complacency. Hate it at the time but can be better for it.

  Yes, criticism can be good in nice doses. However, most of his "stinging points" are simply vanishing as core moves forward, in quite weak competition of 68k era. Some of the goals and ideas have changed over course of time, as with any other Amiga product. Like we had to move away from original hand production, extreme ques and 150 euros initial price tag.
 
  I preffered less grunchu approach where people liked all the new abilities and tended to take its limits "as-is", like hereby present in video, msMadLemon.

Perhaps "Brutally honest critic" would be a better description.. :-D

  Thank you very much for sharing my show here.
 
  Amiten TV season 2018 and after overcoming the goal of more than 1000 subscriptions the show is currently 100% in English no more Spanglish, look at all the chapters of 2018 since February and you will see what I say.
 
  Now when we do a liveshow that is not English you see in the title clearly (SPANISH) and they are specific chapters.
 
  My English according to my viewers and collaborators say that it has improved a lot and I feel happy about it.
 
  As for the commentary of our videogame The Dream Of Rowan - simply say that it is a completely completed and enormously supported project with currently more than 230 copies sold worldwide. You can buy it now at EXTERNAL LINK 
  Greetings and Amiga4ever

Surely it improves by quite technical conversations, but dont take it wrong, I like it, as I am not a native speaker, too.

Will do on my next Amedia purchase, its great to see talented team has made a classic game. 1.9MB chip is a tough requirement, so VAMP GOLD3 will serve that purpose :-)
