Zprava o stavu Vampire V4 a duvody zdrzeni... plus par dalsich drobnosti

Ve zkratce pro neanglictinare, neocekavane zdrzeni V4 zpusobil vyvojarum velky problem s casovanim chipsetu A500, dokonce dosli az k radikalnimu nazoru, ze je jednodussi porozumet zene nez A500. Problem se nakonec rozhodli vyresit prepsanim nekterych zakladnich casti Core.

Vampire V4
As said in previous activity report, team is late with the Vampire V4. We want it to be perfect and have been very busy on it during past months to bring a super product to the Amiga community. To be fully transparent, we have been busy scratching our heads because of a single *ç&%&ç%&”*ç bug. Really. Hundreds of hours have been spent on it to determine why the heck the Vampire V4 does work well on some Amiga 500 boards and not on others (despite same chips revisions).
Team measured everything that could be measured (if you mind, majsta has the biggest thing we could measure) and crosschecked with all Altera manuals, and could not find a single hardware issue.

Finally, decision had to be taken to rewrite some important part of the core to figure out what the problem was, and believe us, the Amiga 500 is a real timing inferno. Most of us agrees that understanding women is easier than talking to an Amiga 500 chipset.

So nothing is canceled, plans have just shifted a bit in time. Team will soon show more about the Vampire V4.

GOLD3
Work on GOLD3 has been resumed and it works better and better with every new core revision. We still need to polish it a bit by dumping copper lists and fix what should be then start work on the AGA/RTG switch mechanism. YouTube and forums will pretty soon be flooded with new videos of AGA games running on our beloved OCS/ECS Amigas.
