Hi from Munich & ACA 630/25 question

Hi from Munich.

I used to have an Amiga 500 back in the day and have been playing around with Amiga Forever, for a while.

Any way I took the plunge recently after watching a youtube video on the Amiga 600.

[ Show youtube player ]

And I bought an Amiga 600 off ebay, a A604 Memory expansion from amigiakit and a 4GB CF flash ide off ebay as well. The idea was to create a gaming Amiga that I could plug into my TV as shown in the above video.

But I miscalculated on the availabilty and price of PCMCIA Sram cards.

I read that you need at least 4MB total ram for WHDload to work correctly. Is this true? Or will it work with just 2mb chip ram (for say the top twenty amiga 500 games)?

I saw a couple of PCMCIA memory cards on ebay. They where expensive at 43 pounds for the 2mb and 75 for the 4mb. So I thought of getting the ACA 630/25 accelerator (this is getting expensive now!) with its 32mb of fast ram. Is this overkill for a wdhload gaming machine?

Also what kickstart do I need to get the CF ide working?

If I buy a ACA 630/25 can to copy a kickstart rom image to ram using Maprom via software so I dont need to buy a new kickstart rom.

Or should I also buy a Kickstart 3.1 ROM chip for the Amiga A600?
