Also Lotharek managed somehow to run production of Furia turboboards I believe, so he could help with some business know - how.

good to hear that

but somehow Kipper2k may need some support. maybe he can change the manufactory to the one you are using.
those suggestion by Akira and Predseda (Gideon & Lotharek) sounds good to me too.

I hope there will be a solution and you find something as a team

i would say yes

while the demand for the hardware is high, now the board production itself is in trouble (v600) - there needs to be a solution first.

If I were Kipper or Majsta now I just would "pass the ball" for example to Amigakit -talking about production matters- and then I would relax, take some monthly money from that and then after some nice holidays I would take a pencil and some papers to start developing the Vampire 1200 just to have the fastest Amiga ever and btw to write my name at the very beginning of the big book of Amiga history.

I hope kipper2k will find a solution, on the other hand I have to say that may new card (May 2017) seems not to works like other ones. I have big problems with resolutions higher than 800x600 and very often a black screen using 800x600. Everything on the software side is done, now I will try to fix the hardware...

I completely agree with this, and this is the point I've been trying to make.
Majsta and Kipper2K, thank you, thank you, thank you, for all your HARD work. But maybe it's time to offload the manufacturing, shipping, warranty and tech support to Amigakit (I was under the impression they had techs working for them anyway) and you guys work as developers and solely work on the Research & Development side of things. I'd rather see your work loads lightened to the point that you can start to enjoy the work again.

The Vampire/Apollo Core project really has the opportunity and ability to pick up where Commodore left off and if production is starting to ramp up then it's time to bring others into it.

Vampire Apollo, seems a good project. Is there some kind of SDK?

Hi Kipper and Majsta,

I just read about the problems you are having with 600 boards and even though I haven't got one yet (no payment email was sent), I think its time to have a break and take some time to enjoy your lives rather than being chained to the projects. It has already been mentioned that you could pass the heavy load on elsewhere as in Sean Scrohts reply to Retrofans also excellent comment.

Take it easy if you can

It is NOT emulated on WinUAE but has P96 drivers for high color and true color graphics for starters.

Regardless of what happens, Kipper and Majsta will be an important chapter in Amiga history. Very cool.

Just develop for "normal" Amiga, and it will work fine with Apollo. Just stay clear of any FPU use.
