Hello Jozef,

I'm sorry but there is no V4 for A500.
The V4 is a "Standalone" Amiga.
Just like a new Amiga model.
You do not need an old Amiga for it.

He may mean Vampire for his Amiga. "4" is sometimes used as a short way to say "for" in English slang but it's not clear. I guess you or majsta will know what version he expressed interest in though. Also there may still be some confusion as the V4 board was originally promoted as an accelerator design for all amigas with standalone version and AFAIK still retains the 64 pin DIL holes that would have been used to attach to a 68000 processor socket.

Hi Jozef,

If you ordered a Vampire V2 for the Amiga 500 vi  EXTERNAL LINK and have now received an email, the email contains information about how to pay.  Please read this email again and check that you didn't just over look the payment information.

There should be a contact email address if you have additional questions.

Let us know how you go.

Gunnar, every single "Standalone" has the 68000 pin header on it and many V4 demos on YouTube show it on a A500 motherboard.

If your not going to sell the A500 version thats fine, but please say that this was a change of plan as its clear that was not the original design.

  There is a V4 model for A500 for internal use. Maybe its not tested and bugfixed enough, or not ready for mass production in some other aspect. It does not mean its abandoned.
 
  Standalone does not have 68 000 pin headers.
 
  I believe its best v4 core matures on Standalone, and than we can expect V4 for A500, A1200, A600, CD32 ... hopefully.
 
  Until then, as said above, V2 is Vamp for A500 avail now.

I'm surprised you missed it, but I think Gunnar made it pretty clear that V4 for Classic systems has been abandoned.

V4 will be SA only and for Classic there is the V2 line of accelerators.

  Where? When? I never heard that. Yes, they were moved away from PRODUCTS, but my personal understanding is that V4SA core needs to mature.
 
  V4 was promised for A500, A600,A1200 and CD32, where only A3000 and A4000 versions were questionable.
 
  @Gunnar
 
  Can this be known? Does not matter to me, I want SA, but there are a lot of Classic owners.

Currently, or "all times"?

Well, it's hard to find these things in the forums, Gunnar mentioned it somewhere.
But the message was clear: no focus on V4 accelerators at all for the next few years.
You've been observing the development for a long time already. You know this means that it's put back into the drawer and will possibly never be seen again.
This is still a hobbyist project and managed on the fly. No offense intended, I can easily understand how complex things have become over time and that the focus had to be redefined.

so how long will I wait for my Vampire? By the way, some do not have a weekly payment, so 7 days for payment is probably not enough

Then maybe you should wait until you have the money handy before ordering it?

I think I'm big enough (grown up) and I know what I'm doing

      Sandisk should work as good as any other card, it might be down to file sys. Coffin uses PFS and is recommended nowadays.
     
   
      WHDLoad - use latest slaves, read this

      and its possible to make most of WHDLoad games work.

It sounds like you have disk problems?
I can recommend to use an IDE2CF adapter and use a CF card.
E.g. 32GB Sandisk.
I have very good experience with Sandisk CF cards.
