Interested! That way the V4 with the Checkmate 1500 would get the "Amiga feeling" that casing provides. Would love to see that happen :)

Hi, this is very interesting! Where can I find more information about it? Is it possible to buy one?

Hi everyone - I  had a chat with Edu (Arananet) re: the possibility of producing a V4 Header for the A1200 case.  He said he'd need 10 or more firm orders to produce them.  Not sure of the process for giving Edu the assurances he needs but thought I'd share here anyway.  I'm pretty sure there'd be 10+ people wanting to slot their V4 into an original 1200 or A1200.net case.  I know I do.  Anyway if there's enough interest I'll pass it on to Edu and we'll see if it's possible.

Arent we a bit off topic? This was supposed to be about the checkmate case. Maybe make a new topic on the subject ? I want & need one for my checkmate :-)

Hi Neil!
I'm interested in a V4 Header for the A1200 case.
Greetings from Germany.

As I understand the checkmate case if the header will fit the original a1200 cases it should also fit the checkmate.

The only thing of making a a1200 header is the keyboard. Im working on a adapter keyrah like, but not ready yet. But I could do a a1200 version and add the kb connector for an A500 keyboard that still will fit on a A1200 case.

In any case, the 500 version will be the first to go out on preorder.

Regards,
Edu.

Sign me up for a checkmate header. Is it possible to fit in the opening under the SFX PSU mount for a case fitted with both V4SA + A1222?

When this also includes better USB support (like this thing https://github.com/tkoecker/v4_hid_wrapper), i.e. I can hook one USB port up to my USB switch (hub). The USB switch has a logitech unify adapter for both my keyboard and mouse which I share among multiple computers.
 
  Then I will be interested :)
 
  Although I don't have a Checkmate and feel an A500 case size overkill. I might squeeze it in some other smaller case.
