I'm using 2xCF adapter with my SD cards. They work fine, and are much cheaper, but wasn't there something about 4GB limit (perhaps it was ACA, not adapter related)? Can't remember now.

Yes. You have to utilise the two organs found on both sides of your head :)

Joking, but beeper vs AY sound difference really is very distinctive.

That's because of the screen size of your monitor. I run 800x600 on my 15" PC VGA monitor and scanlines are hardly visible.

They don't in general because VGA monitors had very subtle scanlines/shadow masks, completely different from consumer tubes, so everything looked super sharp. That's just how it was.

One thing is certain: Amiga should be capable of producing a 1:1 early Castlevania game, or even >1:1. Perhaps it'd be more realistic topic for a remake thread than the likes of Metal Slug ;)
