hi all,

As the Vampire takes over ROM control from the Amiga , i expect that the A570 & CDTV will not work ( i haven't tried yet) but if this is the case will any firmware update allow the 570 & CDtv to work with the Vampire in the future ...

The town with no name needs a vampire.. ;-)

Only built in CD/DVD needs a bit of love.
  No other reasons why Vamps would not work on CDTV board, beside a bit of space constrains.
  Note: It seems current core needs an update, but not much work

Hopefully, mapROM feat might enable loading CDTV ROM.

It works but in A500 mode only. In CDTV mode it freezes on Vampire boot screen.

And about this love we ask :)
It could be nice do see Worbench in high resolution via DIGITAL-VIDEO and use super-slow CD-ROM on CDTV. This model is one of my favourite, but there is almost no any working Turbo for it in CDTV mode

Few months ago Gunnar said team will look at this, but now anoter things need to be done. And I understand that, even if my soul cry, my CDTV is still waiting too :)
