Hi just wondering if there is a run of vampire v2+ for A500 planned.
I missed the run of the 600 models, and noticed that on amigastore.eu it has the 500 as awaiting restock in july.

Yes Igor is right now testing a new V500 patch.

Great news. I joined the waiting list in April and have been looking forward to this for a while (especially as my A1200 has been out of action!)

I have an A600, which I did think about Vamping, but I think the V500 is probably the way to go and a V4, possibly stand alone, possibly A1200 when they are ready.

Exciting times!

I was thinking a1200 and maybe a standalone. But I have 2x a500's so going to get a V2 soon as they are available.
Then go for a v4 when they come out.

I can see lots of progress, so this isn't a criticism of the project, but demand far out strips supply, so I'm expecting a decent wait for V4 even if it's announced as finished tomorrow. So I will get plenty of use out of the V500 anyway.

Indeed. Having the V2 both provides the "Apollo" community and developers with traffic, testing, development and encouragement. I will order the V4 the second it comes available, but in the meantime Im enjoying the V2 development.

Am I right in thinking that those that have already signed up to get a vampire 500 V2+ will get them before the stores will?
I'm probably at the end of that list at the moment, only signed up yesterday, any idea how many are currently waiting for a 500 V2?

I'm not sure how long the list is, but quite big I would think. I signed up at the end of April and I don't have one yet. I was expecting at least 6 months.

What made me think more about it was amigastore.eu having the 500 v2+ down for a restock in July, now there is a confirmed production run coming once a patch is verified.
I was hoping that this may mean that the run would be large enough to cover both those on the list and to supply retailers, with those on the list getting first shot at the available units.
I can only hope :) tho either way I've got a couple of cap kits coming for my now 3x A500's so out of them I should be able to get at least two up and running.

It's been a year since the V4 was announced..
I kind of gave up on it for the foreseeable future and plan to get a V2-600 instead..

Yeah I think the V4 may still be quite a few months off. But with the soon to be released gold 2.11 there should be a production run of V2 500's soon.
I think the V2 600 run has just sold out not sure when they will be doing another run, someone here should be able to give you an idea, they seem to be very good at keeping us all informed.

I dont think they have any, there is no way to add to cart. I only saw them briefly on amigastore.eu

You need to create account at Amedia first and everything will just go fine.
