You set everything like you order/pay, you get charged zero and your data gets saved in que.

Hello!

Gunnar please tells us if a German company like Infineon is producing the V4SA ?
Or « others »:

Anyway, you not force to respond ; some trial secrecyís needed.

Perhaps, we can know that at Amiga34 ?

Best regards to the Apollo Team for the workís achievement.

Sometimes people sell their tickets in before, since they cannot make it themselves.
Just look out a bit..

Thought I read on the website that they were holding some tickets for sale at the door too.

@Vojin

If itís a « European » company yielding V4SA cards ; itís good for our jobs, isnít it ?

If itís a Chinese, or whatever, my point of vue is that, itís a great path to hacking : imagine a HanConsole: DOS handler after the DOS ArabConsole: handler, I hack onto the operating system.

At a kickstart level, I need some AmigaOS developer credentials !

Chinese on AOS needs « big » fonts (think that is ok) and UNICODE really.
I learn Zhuyin not pinyin to do something the right way : native.

  Japanese/Korean etc. support is also needed, but that is for Hype/Cloanto to do.

Belxjander was only one to try in OS4 camp/AROS, but its not complete to my knowledge.

after playing with my TF330, i'm starting to think i want to be a bit greedy. i want it all. AGA, FPU, RTG, etc etc. so yes. i am very excited regarding the V1200! i think this is going to be the most important amiga development to me, i just hope your production run can cope with my purchasing requirements! ;)

128meg ram, as much as i'd like more, is also a good fit, as the V1200 can then be dropped straight into the 128meg CPU board area of the A3/4k without any extra wiggling.

anyway, great news! always good to hear, but also glad you're not a slave to posting every single detail to the point that the project suffers. hope the parties are good, and the people even better!

September'19 Activity Report
 
  Team has been super busy this summer, not drinking caipirinhas nor London mules but working on topics we are all super excited to hear about: Vampire Standalone and V1200. Let's not hold horses anymore and open the starting gates.

Renaud, I think this will go down as the best report of the last 10 years.
I am truly lost for words.
But one question I have
Does anyone know where Thierry Atheist is?
I have not heard from him for ages and I thought he would be all over this news. I miss his enthusiasm.
I have placed my order though through Vesalia.
Long live the Amiga now powered by Vampire and AROS.

Thanks for the suggestions.  I think I may zip through on the Saturday.  Just booking the flights now.  The worst is I get a little time in Germany.  :)

  I placed my order with Vesalia today.
  No payment: then I get an email from them with a link that I click on to confirm my order.
  Then I received a second email this evening to say they have my order and not to pay as it is only to gauge interest.
  They also say that they will let me know when the V4 is available and when to pay.
 
  Easy way to go I think.
  I have bought several items from Vesalia previously over the years.

I had placed interest in the V4, a year ago, on AMIGAStore.eu and I think I paid nearly $15 USD for the privilege.  Have I been scammed or am I in the queue?
