Hello,
  i flashed a core months ago but i don't know which version anymore.
 
  Which command do i need in shell to get the version info about the flashed core i use at the moment?
 
  best regards.
 
FYI:
The core i use now hasn't any info at boot. Only black screen.

Which Vampire do you refer to?

Please press both mouse buttons during reset.
You will now enter the Early Boot Menu.
What do you see there?
On top should be a Version Number.

I use a V500 2.2
   
    I made what you said. Pressed both buttons and i saw the early boot menu. No information there about the vampire.
   
    I tried vcontrol co AND vcontrol cr in shell and both shows me nothing :(
   
  The only thing i could find out is with vcontrol hz. i use a x11 at 78Mhz-Version.

Yes, only Apollo-OS will list the version in Early-Menu screen
