  Here is more detailed and colourful guide, whose plain copy that was.
  EXTERNAL LINK   
 
  It should autoinstall, device manager look is check.
 
    On Windows, open the Device Manager and ensure that the USB Driver for USB-Blaster is correctly installed. If it is NOT correctly installed, then select the .INF driver information file from the Quartus setup archive.

In this case I didnt (myself) unpack it but the installer must have done so .. I just had no idea where it did that.. but its all good now, installed and x11 core has been installed and working..

First of all, a very big thank you to the Apollo/Vampire team ! I tremendously enjoy my card. :)

On a practical side, has the x11 and x12 EXEs been silently dropped, and should we thus settle for the available x10 EXE, or will there eventually be faster cores available, justifying a few more days of waiting before flashing the 2.9 core ?

Thanks.

Hello,

I just installed core 2.9 x11 in my v 500 2+ with quartus.

I take the file .jic from here  EXTERNAL LINK 
At boot image logo i see gold 2.9,but if i check with "vcontrol co" i see Apollo rev 4990 x11 c7gk (gold 2.8) it's normal?

Thanks

P.S.
There will be an x12?

Flashing .JIC does not update ver string. VControl shows ver string of the EXE updater that was run last time.

Is there an EXE version of the V500 2.9 X11 Core at all please? Would like to install it without taking the top off my Amiga if possible. :)

on my A500 v2+,
what is "CC0" in the early startup boot menu? is that the route by which SD card booting was going to be enabled?

also, all this talk of "squeezing an FPU" into the cyclone3 (via 64bit as opposed to 80bit registers etc.), does that mean that the v3 core will have a more "optimised" FPU in order to fit AGA in there as well, or is AGA pretty much in there already, it just needs a few final tweaks before being effectively switched on?

just a couple of little questions that have been on my mind - nothing serious
