We are planning some update release for all V2 cards later this year.
This is a major development item and takes a lot time, therefore we are aiming for a december release.

When will you have core 2.14 in .exe format?

What are these updates going to be for? extra features? Bug fixes? Both?

A very nice feature for the Amiga 600 and 1200 would be if you can add booting from a CF card in the PCMCIA slot. Like the new ACA1234

Yeah, Christmas is closer,  I hope in a nice present for my V1200 :)

I think there is no progress on the V2 core ... so the December 2021 release of all V2 cores is somewhat unlikely ... maybe later ... if Gunnar wants to prove us wrong maybe as a Christmas present ... perhaps....

Intentional provocation often does not grow the intended fruit. Let us all try to be nice to each other.

The taunt will also lead to nothing ... but it seems that no one is currently working on a core for V2 cards ... so I just think we will have no core for V2 by December 2021 ... just ... no offense ... Of course, if someone from the Team wants to give us some information about it, they are welcome ....

I am currently using 7389 (Gold 2.12) on my Vampire V2 500 and 7950 x12 (Gold 2.13) on my Vampire 1200. Both run very stable.

Seems like the download page is missing the 1200/600 and wiki page not working...

Many people found the several websites confusing and ask us to "consolidate" this.
This is exactly what we are doing.

Please understand the downloads for V1200/V600/V500 can currently not be provided for legal reasons.

As you know in the cores of V1200/V500/V600 used to contain a licensed Kickstart file.
But who owns the right to give out licenses is currently unclear and distributed in court.

These legal battles drag out now since years.
As we do not want to be involved in these court cases.
Therefore we can not provide links to these files anymore.

The only solution for the future is to create cores with free Apollo-Rom included. We are working on this - but this takes some time.

Hi Gunnar, so where do people go for saga drivers and core updates and information about  the v2's for the A500 A600 and A1200, there is nothing about these product anywhere any more, It just feels like we have just been left in the cold with these products.
