Ah, a very nice review.  Now there should be a review of FPGA Arcade Replay which Jim Drew is distributing now.

I agree, it's not available. When it's not exclusiveware, then review it

Not available?
Pretty much everything Lotharek lists is available.
Have you tried ordering one?

I think he's talking about FPGA Arcade, which is more difficult to get.

I dunno about the FPGA arcade I had ordered it via an email request but the time I got an answer there were rumblings about this Vampire thing so I jumped on that. The Vampire took 4 months to get. It was worth the wait. I also waited many months for the A1200 / 600 keyboard adapter and A604n. Such is the wait in Amigaland.

The MIST pops up on ebay directly from the manufacturer at a reasonable price all the time.

You guys are kidding, right? The MiST is available through Amedia Computers in France. Contact Faranheit in this forum.

He can probably help you to get a FPGA Replay too. I bought both from him.

OK, I am sure Mike is trying, but the delays have shaken my confidence.

I was talking about the elusive fpga replay. It's unobtainium.

When the Mist (or something like it) becomes as fast as the Vampire on a 600, then I'm in!

Then again, I bought mine from Amedia Computer in France and had it shipped here to the States.

A fully FPGA based solution certainly has the potential of outperforming a design that relies on some legacy components.
Hey Chris, is that your face?
