V1200 and Mediator

Hello,

Several days ago paid for V1200, waiting to be shipped :)

Question is, will V1200 work with Mediator? If not at this moment, are there any plans to support it?

It would be great to have two separate video outputs in classic, one using V1200 and PCI Voodoo or Radeon.

No support for Mediator today.
Future unknown.

the question is why wouldnt it work with mediator and why would it need particular support for that extension. however im not familiar with a1200 types of mediator and quite honestly i believe a1200 shouldnt ever have been gutted out of their original cases, even if not that beautiful, into even worse looking clumsy towers held together with duck tape.

to my knowledge mediator is being attached by means of z3 bus without dma, at least on a4k models. it might be simply worth to test if pci.library would work.

The memory window needs to be mapped with MMU afaik.
