Cannot Reset A600 With Vampire V2

Hi all!

I have the problem that my A600+V2 freezes after a reset (command reboot or others). It's not the end of the world but it's annoying: I can only switch it on/off...

With many help (thanks Blackices77 and others!), I pinpointed the problem: it happens only when I use a P96 RTG screen mode: it doesn't happen when using a regular PAL screen mode.

The freeze doesn't (seem to) depend on the OS (tried "by hand" with nothing but the monitor and IPrefs and LoadWB and tried with the full CoffinOS r55), the core version (tried 2.10, 2.11, and 2.12), the SAGA Drivers (tried 0.14, 1.0, 1.4.2, 1.5.2, 1.7.1, 2.4.1, and 2.6.1)...

(Yes, that's a lot of combinations... and as many powering on/off my Amiga :grin:)

My card is an "old" Kipper2K V2...

With whom in the Apollo Team could I try to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance!
Tygre

Hi!

Some more experiments show that it's only when I reboot in a P96 RTG screen mode that my Amiga freezes: if I change screen mode to PAL *before* rebooting, it reboots fine...

What in P96 RTG screen modes could cause my Vampire to "freeze"?

Please help :-)

Unfortunately I don't have a solution to the problem but I am curious if this utility works for you from the RTG: EXTERNAL LINK

Hi Tygre,

Do you have any additional hardware addons for your A600 besides the Vampire?

This works for me! I can now reset my Amiga, yeah! :-)

So it could be that I have the same bug... maybe I should try to change the ROM in my Vampire?

Take care!

Besides the Vampire, I have a Arananet for Ethernet connection but nothing else. I also tried without the Arananet, but I had the same problem :-\

Take care!
