The time isnt there anymore.

The boards I have created are out there for all time. So no toys have been taken away. The ones i've not released arent working anyways so there isnt much loss.
Sorry to hear about your situation, it will be sad to see you leave the Amiga scene as I have thoroughly enjoyed following the progress, your YouTube videos and streams, and what the future may of held for the terriblefire.

I wouldn't pay to much attention to Freemilk/Keith. After the whole Vampire cloning threats and stuff his repsonses are not surprising.

All the best though on whatever you work on next

Yeah, those Vampire cards for A1200 and CD32 are selling like cup cakes.

this project is completely independent of Vampire, its not designed to compete, it is designed so people can enjoy a low cost basic fastmem device for their A1200

Good spot. I read somewhere that header files consisting entirely of a definition of a published API may be assumed to be in the public domain (since the API itself is), but I cannot find a reference to that so I have deleted the file from the repo history.

You can still build the drivers if you replace sana2.h from elsewhere.

@plasmab,

I haven't been following the discussion lately and have only just browsed through some of the newer posts and read about your family situation. Family has to come first especially where there is kids and illness involved, I wish you and your family all the strength that you need to get through the fate that you face and I'm sure that everyone here feels the same way.

All the very best,
Allen.

@Plasmab. Very sorry to hear about your family member. I hope you can find the time in the future to continue making good progress with your Terrible Fire Accelerator projects which we all here appreciate and have been truly inspired by them/your work.

@Everyone


Kipper2k's latest design should be with us soon, once confirmed he will be taking orders, of course if you want to pre-order please send kipper2k an email or PM. Website: www.kipper2k.com e-mail is in the contact link.

That's very unfortunate, and sounds like you should have been returning them for repair or refund and not going buying more of them, especially if you weren't sure whether the issue was with your setup(s) or the card(s).

Again, sounds like it should have been returned to the retailer as soon as you found it wasn't doing what it was advertised to.

Hmmmm, it's funny that you seem to think of Individual Computers as some sort of faceless mega-corporation... Like the Intel of the Amiga world. As companies go, Individual is way down there with the smallest, most accessible of companies that there is. Besides, just because something is open source, there's absolutely no guarantee that a) it will work at all, and b) it won't destroy itself or your machine. At least with a commercial product there is some protection against that. But who do you run to when an open source product sets your Amiga on fire because of a design flaw?
I did indeed return 2 of the rapidroad devices and they was replaced but still a massive pain in the arse, secondly I did ask about the problems with the indivision and it is how it is meant to be no fault just crap firmware!!! I will be glad when gold 3 for the vampire arrives so I can tear the bloody thing out!!!

That's great! I think most of us though are waiting for the gerber files and a BOM to start building each our own

Those memory modules though are out of stock from mouser and I'm afraid we'll have to resort to the Chinese market

Sorry, I was quoting the wrong section... the part I wanted to quote was about the CD32 conversion, the "(minus the clock)" part. Optional RTC is fine, not having an option is not so fine

Just want to say I have been a fan and supporter of Kipper projects since 2016, he has always done right by me in terms of fast delivery and communication and I am really happy he is doing this. Such a step in the right direction for the venerable A1200!
First the TF328 now this! Nice!

I believe kipper2k is making some final changes to the board design waiting shipment from china and then pushing to github.

No real new features to come apart from possibly dual SD card support on the driver with select lines.

Stay tuned.
