Jens, are we going to get those features you mentioned in your readme's or not?
You're mixing two things: Advertised features and future things that I'm planning. AFAIK, no reseller and no product description that I have sent out contain Graffiti emulation and/or VSynced output as a guaranteed feature. Just because it's possible and just because I've put it on my personal wishlist does not mean that it is part of what you have bought at the time you've bought the flickerfixer.

You should only buy a product for what it is right now, not for what you think it may become in the future.

The list of things it does NOT is long. It is not a coffee machine. It does not play MP3. It does not speed up WB operation. It does not increase chipram size (yes, I've had that complaint!). Got the idea?

Negative. The config tool gives you all the freedom to generate full-screen gaming modes and to generate 50Hz output. The sentence "it does not do what I have never advertised" is implied. Find me a judge who requires me to add that sentence, and I'll do it, but it's far from any logic to express that it's not doing what I didn't say it'll do. Besides, if you're only taking your information from the readme, you already have that information. What more are you asking for?

What you call a limitation is actually an outstanding feature of the product: It generates a standard screen displayable on most (if not all) monitors without the need for tweaking. Those nasty "can't display this mode" messages are gone, and that's what people want. If you want more, use the config tool.

That's my opinion anyway, and if that's as good as the MK2 gets, then i feel it's an overpriced piece of hardware considering the limited feature list it currently has, very disappointing
Your current disappointment is caused by an expectation that I haven't triggered with any advert. I might satisfy your requests anyway in the future - it's just not a guaranteed property of the product.
