Vampire Fault Codes

Are there any fault codes in Vampire cards that might help with identifying problems? (Like Amiga has)

When I start my (Faulty V600 v2) i get a blue color for about a second, then I get a bunch of horizontal stripes (red, yellow, purple, white color) Shifted vertically in such a way they form a diagonal pattern..

(Behaviour of the Vamp card is the same regardless if I hold SHIFT when booting or Both Mouse Buttons.. Its the same..
Tried a bunch of different cores, the last test was with 2.12 and latest Coffin release.. no difference.)

@Majsta if you read this, are there any diagnostic color codes used on the V600 v2?

Ok, never mind, card sold now (as defective) so hopefully the new owner will be able to get it going.

Sorry to read that you never received any support here. Usually Majsta is rather helpful, so he may have missed it.
