@mfilos: I notice it says Kickstart 40.63, can you not use kickstart ROM updates, load rom modules etc with the Vampire? Let us know when you have successfully built custom 3.9 kickstart for it ;)

Ofc you can use ROM updates and LoadModule ofc to load whatever you want (with the drawback of 1 restart)

Custom Kickstart would rule :)

If one has a fast cpu, how could a programmer slow things down for the user?
Vsync or something like that?
I am sorry if this is a bad example.
