Did you miss the information here in the thread that you can do payments via a simple bank transfer?

Yes, I saw that but I was going to pay with my MasterCard so that the wife would not see how much I was really paying for this piece of kit for an old computer!! ;)

Hey all,
Super happy today! my V1200 has arrived! Just figuring out if i can get out of work today to go play!

it took just less than a month from email notification of it being posted, to arrive at my door in the UK. So that's what Covid19 is doing to the postal service at the moment.

so those of you who have one on it's way, don't worry, it'll get there :)

Thanks again Igor and team! i can't want to fire this up!

Now I m at 2019-12-26. It goes slow. Few days ago I got another batch of cards. Unfortunately ESD bags I was using before are not with me yet so I ll have to use those I got from factory. They do the job but don't look so nice. In such weird times where postal system is very limited I have to work with what I can find.  Package won't look as before and I hope you will understand the situation. I apologize for that. Still have about 50 cardboard boxes and I will try to make more. However, cards look good and I didn't find any major issue so far regarding this batch.

Hi, can you save video so I can see what's going on.
Did someone or you did some rework like clock timing fixes on those Rev 2B motherboards?

Hi.
No they run as stock, one of the Rev 2B run whit Meditor and Blizzard 1230 and the other whit ACA 1233n and mk2cr (all tests was done whit out the hardware)

I'll try to make a video of it and mail you the link to it.

Both are not a really good solution for the Amiga - I think they are the source of your problems. My V1200 works without any problems on the 2b board. I would recommend to test some other PSU and check the timingfixes.

Argh.
12 Hours of pain, and as I was making the video I fotgot to push the vampire all the way on the pcb and it workes.
So I guess there is a bad socket on the v1200 hafe way on and it works on 2B think the pcb's on 2B are a bit smaller than 1D.4
I'll order a new socket and solder it on.
Thx for all the help I got.

I have a ATX 850w gold for my Meditor and the meanwell is a 63w whit 5.5A on the 5v side its overkill for the old Amiga's :)

Hey Morten,
I feel your pain! every time i do something beyond just switching a machine on, it seems to involve more heart stopping moments of thinking i've broken it, than i care for ;)

my V1200 is running the current x12 core, and ticking along just fine on an old stock PSU (15Watt on 5Volts, 8Watts? on the 12volt line i think?)
It's a rev1b mainboard with a CF card on the stock IDE port, an indivisionAGA, a "bifrost" LED cluster as i'm worried about the wires on the originals, and then nothing else bar the vamp.

It's been on constantly in the days since i got the V1200 :D doing Quake2, Xtreme Racing, AB3DII-TKG, scummVM fate of atlantis, slam tilt, demos yadda yadda. i might get done some time of just sitting there with my jaw on the floor just going "wow", and actually DO something with it, but its all good fun.
