You missed a gem in there: Shinobi III. Amazing game. Do not overlook it!
Good bag of tricks you acquired there...
And I'll suggest you do a region and 50/60Hz mod on it. If your display can support 60Hz, it's the way most Megadrive games are meant to be played

I think I just agreed to buy an A500+ and an A590.

Any suggestions for additional fast ram for this configuration? It would have to not be autoconfig, I guess, unless it sat between the A590 and the expansion port on the Amiga.

Something like the Kipper2k fast mem expansion?

I don't think he's making those any longer, but it should be possible to find used occasionally.
And yes, bringing it to 2MB chip by putting 1MB in the trapdoor would also be my first step in upgrading a 500+. PeteAU's board is cheap to build and works great.

I'll definitely be upgrading the chip to 2MB via the trapdoor and there's 2MB in the A590. I'd like 4mb fast, though. Seems better for whdload.

I've heard rumours of a 2mb fast expansion that sits on the CPU but can't find any details beyond an ancient group buy thread on amibay from 2012.

Oh, and I should have a D23 to SCART high-quality shielded cable in transport from Germany.
SCART arrived and hooked to CRT tv.
RJ converter arrived and hooked to my 2000 Cherry-keys keyboard.
A1000 cleaned outside and dusted off a little inside. Working!
(Might get a Vampire 4000 for this one...)
