This is awesome. So many new project for the older systems like this. I'd love to see one for the big box systems like to 3000 and 4000.

Take video of the Citadel/Cytadela. Best FPS working on A500/68000.

Is a version of this planned for the A2000? Even a adaptor board that plugs into the CPU slot to accept this card would be great!
