Someone on English Amiga Board said that 2 ECS Scandoubler's installed would create a 24 bit output therefore making it AGA compatible. Would do you think? Thanks.

Are you trolling dude?  Pardon my french, but this is effing retarded.  Would you stop listening to crazy people?

What you CAN do with two Indivision ECS's installed is a dual monitor setup.  Google it, there's videos out there.  Only Jens never released the drivers/software to make it happen, so while it can be done "in the lab", normal people can't do it.

Are you trolling? He wasn't talking about the Indivision. What the post on EAB refers to is this, which is essentially two A2320 put on a single board:

And I'm supposed to know that he was referring to that from his post, how? If there's already a discussion about this home-brew scandoubler over on the other site, why come over here and post a vague and unclear question? Either way, even if cobbling together two of those somehow gives the ability to display an "AGA-style" screenmode, it's not going to make an ECS Amiga miraculously able to run AGA games or other software. *Sigh* I give up. :furious:

The AGA chip "glued" electronically to a plug in board would give real AGA modes, but why?  If you want AGA-type output, get an RTG board.  AGA comes on a system with a 32-bit bus using a 32-bit Zorro 3 bus (aftermarket for the A1200) with 32-bit speeds.  Bandwidth does matter, or is this a foreign concept to the discussion?

Two 5-ounce sparrows cannot carry a 1 pound coconut strung together under their dorsal guiding feathers very far, and kludging such crap together is an academic exercise at best.  Same for an AGA-type output from a plug in board.
