Retina v1.1 graphics card

Hi all

Bought a Retina v1.1 graphics card for my A500+ long term project......going to get a Zorro adapter asap...!

Anybody still have one of these cards still ?


I hear only 256k of the cards ram is in the Zorro II address space....so will be better as I only have 16mb Zorro address space(ish)


Any info would be appreciated.


I have all the manuals and can use Google translate to read them.

Hiya Mark.

I had one years ago, back in the early Nineties with an A4KD, not an A500+ with riser.

But;

Iirc, this card only promotes screens such as AdPro, Real3D etc.

You won't be able to play games on it.

All I can offer fella, sorry.

Charlie

That card isn't supported by either Cybergraphics or Picasso, so not really all that useful.....
