If the chipset is completely reversed why non of the FPGA implementation aren’t compatible with the demos/games 100% for a given chipset?

You mean, like some demos that work on ECS A500 don’t work on ECS A3000?

There is more to it than just the chipset itself, there is the CPU, there is surrounding electronics, there is timing, there are numerous factors that potentially play in.

No I meant 100% with OCS, 100% with ECS and 100% with AGA for demos/games specifically developed for one of these chipset. All in all as compatible as an real Amiga is with those chipsets for properly written software.

Games especially are not 'properly written software' in most cases. Thats why you need lots of patches in WHDload, it is not for installation only.

And now you have 060 and a new ultrapipelined ultrafast 080, the situation gets more difficult.

Then we are very much there already. Do you have any particular software that doesn’t work with Minimig chipset cores?

Sure would be nice if there was a CDRW in the keyboard.

Update to last post,

Suggested above option their reply was " This is not planned yet but we like the idea!"

Not holding my breath but, hope it's sooner than later, I have some great games on CD
& would like to burn some music too.

If they supported full USB it would be easy

Been reading the Vampire 4 stand alone and looks to not be quite ready for prime time yet: Still some screen issues and HDMI audio extractor seems to overload a bit "crackles and pops", output voltage probably a bit too high, better than 5V out.

I'm sure they are working on it.

WARNING £103 import tax I have just found out. Dont go on about brexit. I dont blam the Vampire team either but they could of made it clear when ordering that there would be a very high import tax fee.

I guess the tax is collected by your country? How can you ("not")blame them and not yourself for not being uptodate with tax regulations?

Different tax for every country is a problem there. May have been less to ship via US instead, now that's ridiculous.
