@Mike....... yea, I have to get re-motivated to fit that HC533. I have a bunch-o-riser pins to try again. Oh man, don't let your VXL*30 go to waste! Sounds like you're busier than ever!  ???

Yeah.  My company just got bought out by our largest nationwide competitor, turning what was a $20 mil regional business into "just another cog in the wheel" of a $780 mil nationwide business.  Mergers and acquisitions suck!  At least the layoffs haven't started yet but a few folks have quit, "busier than ever" is an understatement.  I feel like a hoarder with two A1200 projects and another A2000 project sitting in the closet waiting for me to do something with them.  One of these days!  :(

Just found that thread while looking for a solution for possible issue with my project.
I got a rev5 A500 with Indivision ECS v3 and Ace2b 2mb chip ram expansion. Planning to transplant in it a Vampire v4 Firebird (sitting in my drawer).
Wanna keep the native hardware functional as well so I’d like it all to coexist.
Should I look into relocators and risers or can forget about having it all in the same machine right away?
Worst case is yo lose the 2mb chip ram and go with just 1mb Agnus and trapdoor card.

Interesting as it disables on board chip ram and it's 2MB is fully self contained.

I have one from the 90's that worked like that, I had 2mb chip and 1.5mb in the trapdoor. I'm not entirely sure it still works mind you.
