  currently you can't unless you want to try the extremely alpha version of gold 3.0 core. This core hasn't been updated in over a year and doesn't have the same level of support as the Vampire V4 core used in the standalone... At some point it may get revisited, but the team is small and can only work on a few things at once.

  Click on the red "power button" on the lower right of the page. And read the disclaimer before attempting to flash it... It requires a USB Blaster and the Quartus software to program the firmware.

Yeah, having the team members YouTubing the latest Vampire versions with the latest software is somewhat misleading.

Getting a Vampire doesn't instantly let you do everything the team members can. We don't have access to their latest core revisions and i have no idea where to get some of the software they are demoing.

the alpha aga core could be ok if the just add something like a 640x480 mode, so i don't have to reload different cores when i want to go to workbench stuff
