You know, basically coding asm for the vamp is not different from coding asm for the amiga. You don't have to wait to have "the real hardware" before starting code port & code & test in an amiga environment (uae is your friend). High-quality optimizations with AMMX and test on real HW will come last in the process.
Don't worry - I already started with the emulator last week - it can easily take me 4-6 weeks just to get my base Jaguar codebase running in the emulator.
I've created the bitplane gfx mode, with some debugging / print functionality and am troubleshooting the RTG chunky gfx mode OS calls now.
Once the chunky mode is working in emulator, I can start porting the 3D engine with the game.
AMMX, indeed, will be the very last step.
