So you're saying that the statements I referred to are BS? If so, maybe they should be changed.

No, the BS was the "would not dare" and "dictates" parts of your comment.

Ah, yes, it is indeed BS that I would not dare. :)

But then you are saying that it's correct what it says in the announcement and the wiki?  It literally says "People shall use the FPU for what it is intended to on the Vampire, that is to run most of the Amiga Demos and Games requiring an FPU.!" with both bold and underlined, both punctuation and exclamation mark.

Maybe everyone should boycott buying vampires if Apollo development is slave labour?

Just because something doesn't cost, doesn't make it free. For example.

https://edition.cnn.com/2014/03/31/tech/web/gmail-privacy-problems/index.html

I assume Apollo developers think they will make money out of it eventually.


Yeah where in it for the money.... LOL!!!!

Last time i checked we all did it because we like Amiga and wanted to bring something new and fresh for Amiga fans by Amiga fans.
Amiga is addictive coz it is fun to use

OMG why is everybody so bent out of shape at the Apollo folks. I bought and have been thoroughly enjoying my V500 V2+. The thing is a little marvel. As soon as a V4 for the  A1200 is released, I'll buy one of those too. Same for the stand alones.

How long does it take between registering and downloading a core that doesn't just output greyscale?

Right? I don't know how much longer my A1200 will be alive at this rate.

My missing wish list items for V5 Vamp hardware are

Network support
USB support

Add either, or preferably both, and you have made a powerhouse classic Amiga. I ordered an X-Surf 100 for my Vampirized A2000. I love the new bootpic btw.

The v4 Vampire will be a 1200 replacement, then?  In the genre of a 1200 Reloaded but with all chips replicated?  Sounds like fun to me.

The Vamp V1200/V4 will not be a system replacement. The standalone Vampire V4 will be. The V1200/V4 will still use many of the chips, existing upgrade solutions and things like floppy drives. I/O on the standalone will have to provide a usage path for these things since there will be no Amiga to piggyback on.

I'd like one of each.

:huh:
As a developer, I really feel unwell to see something like this...  so there is no room for legit complains? no Bug reports, no feedback at  all...

Every "real" developer is very happy about error/bug  reports, especially when the user searched for a simple reproduction way  and it is  reproducible. At least me, but maybe I'm from yesterday, today you are only allowed to cheer!

Just my 2 cent.

Come on, you should know the difference between trolls that only bash the product without ever giving constructive feedback (other than "for running BSD an MMU is required!") and people giving useful bug reports (such as you did). The latter are always welcome and appreciated on forums.
