Had a few games jittering and graphics are miscoloured and shadowed.
Jim Power and Harliquin.

Im using Vampire V4+ with Coffin R58.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Always try WHDLoad slaves, often with EXPCHIP and NOCACHE for gaming of old games before big Amigas had a lot of cache and fast ram (pre CD ROM era games, plain A500,A600,A1200 games).
 
  WHDLoad optional switches, can be added to tooltype in icon
  EXTERNAL LINK   
  Even then, there is certain degree of game incompatibilities since V4 is improved reverse engeenered chipset but not yet perfect in OCS-ECS-AGA game compatibility.
   
    Apps have way better compatibility.
     
      The only list I know is Jacub hajdas

      And its with old V4 core, should be better now.
     
      In time, SAGA core, that reverse-engeeners AGA core, would improve, as well as blitter timings. V4SA is fastest Amiga, but is not yet most compatible - A1200 with V1200 is way better at present time, since chipset is used from the board.
     
      There is no official list of what works and what doesnt. Its similar, even worse, when using GOLD3 alpha core on V2 series.

oh yeah, fun times. Lots of people tested the games. There is improvement in some areas, but AGA definitely needs more love;)
