Great! I hope they don't remove turtle mode as mentioned. There is a lot to be said for allowing the A500 to revert to normal speed for nostalgia purposes, as well as compatibility.

Turtle mode will not be removed completely as far as I understand but it will not be necessary much longer due to some other changes in the next core. Also, turtle mode is not exactly normal A500 speed, but maybe 3x to 4x that of a plain A500. Usually slow enough to eliminate compatibility issues though.

I'm glad to hear turtle mode will stay! 🐢

LOL

That's about the same reaction i had when i booted up my V600 for the first time.
Also be sure to install peterk's icon lib, makes icon loading blazing fast!

We had a kick without boot delay and it was like turning on a C=64. Almost instant on...

Team, is there any inherent advantage to using an SD card as a hard disk over using my pre-existing CF card that was in my A508HD? I'm running it with an IDE adapter and it works great.

If SD is somehow better I could transfer the CF contents to SD.

I use the IDE. I don't think there is any advantage to the SD. You can't even boot from SD.

You can still use the SD card in the IDE port with an adapter but in my experience the performance is the same as with a CF card.

Yes, that's exactly what I do. You can get SD-cards in any supermarket or drugstore which is why an SD2CF adapter is a very handy thing.

there is a Vampire Boot project on github:

Vampire boot is a ready made HDF image to boot a partition from SD card installed in Apollo Vampire accelerator card
someone has to test and verify.

Until a proper driver is made for the SD-card slot, I'd suggest to use the IDE interface like before and keep using your CF-card like before. No need to switch.

The SD card drivers at their current state is slow, unreliable/unstable and doesn't allow direct boot. So I believe it's better to wait until the drivers are sorted.

Hi all, Just a quick note to give you update on my status. I took a big hit on bad board production recently which has put a huge dent money wise on what i can and want to do in the future. I am going to exhaust all my supply of different projects that i have sitting about and will then kinda fizzle away and just do a few projects only. I don't intend on continuing with making the Vampire 600 boards and i will be exhausting those items also. Thanks for everyones support.

Brian
thanks for your hard work

#1) this would explain the v600 not listed a couple days ago.

It must have been stressful as hell making all those V600s by hand. Especially when that hand has an injury on it!
