True. We debated that elsewhere as well, can't remember if it was in this thread or not. But the fact that the A1200 had (more than) a slight incompatibility with the A500 (heck, even the A500+ and...

I have WinUAE and real A500 (1MB) and A1200 (9MB). I am available to judge games, if needs be. I will have to know the classification criteria, tho. Surely it won't rely solely on our personal tastes.
