Help needed to update Vampire Community FAQ v1.04 one year old (Telegram group)
  Can anyone volunteer to correct and help update Community FAQ? Team did great job with Apollo Wiki, but intention here is to have something like a book, more similar to 90s style of tech guides (or early usenet and BBBs reviews, guides) that included humor and style.
 
  In time, it MIGHT develop to a "Semi manual" or IF IT GETS TEAM BLESSING even get printed and shipped with systems (on users demand, optional).
 
  I believe  too little info is given with Vamps now, even with new and nice version. I would put some more effort freely, in given direction and with proper team mate :slight_smile:

  Thanks for the spot on, but can you provide it as
 
  "Page XX of FAQ text "" should be changed to "" (Source link)
 
  I will collect a lot and bump to 2.0, this could be 1.05.01 at best :)
 
  Also, find Eagle Player and AmigaAmp (Aminet) support file download links (or Milky, what supports it?) please ...
 
  I believe I have read ApolloOS will have AHI driver for it?
 
  It will also go to Vampire supported list.

Added "MEET PEOPLE BEHIND VAMPIRE", giving my example. More will follow - I mean different Amigans :)
 
  Vojin Vidanović (vox / Ras Voja) – interview
by Hugo Pereira, Vampire Telegram Group
--------------------------------------------------
  Hi Vojin, can you introduce yourself ?
--------------------------------------------------
  Hello Amigans, My name is Vojin Vidanović.  My professions are social worker, University teacher and reggae music lover 😊 I live in Belgrade, Serbia (used to be Yugoslavia, when I was born). I am 42.

  Private interests and hobbies are nature and walking, Healthy food, Vynils and old school hi-fi, Retro computing (Amiga, Atari,Classic MacOS), Poetry.  My spiritual choice is  Rastafarianism and Othodox Christian, I am single with no children

  In Amiga forums after 2000 and local Serbian BBs of 90s I use short nick vox. It was created first time I had to enter hi-score name on local Arcade or personal computer 😊

--------------------------------------------------
  How long have you been using the Amiga?
--------------------------------------------------

  About 1994 I obtained A1200 barebone and 50 floppies. Once I bought 2.5” 80MB silent hard drive I could install most of it and still have breathing space to work. Had better computer experience and  joy  then 16Ghz, 16GB + 4GB VRAM beast with Athlon 4x 880K  and Sound Blaster Audigy. Later expanded it to 020/28MHz/4MB FAST/800MB 3.5” externally powered floppy and CD ROM. Tried to render, used Dpaint, enjoyed AmigaOS 3.5 a lot. OS 3.1 for me was loadwb or get to games, I disliked its too spartan look, even I enjoyed long filenames, versatility, abilities to edit icons, datatypes and libs etc.
  In East Europe, even in liberal Yugoslavia, there were no personal computers on sale. Our computer industry existed and heavy taxes were put, computers could only be singlely important or found in “Comission” shop individually. No software support existed. I believe people living under so called “peoples  social democracies” know and have lived same and even worse, even East Germans and Polish or Russians. We were self learning, grabing every bit of info, sharing whatever we could get. But tradition of computer magazines, meeting and with modems, bulletins boards flourished.
  So I have struggled 1986 to start with ZX Spectrum, falling in love in 1991 with cheaper  C64. Once my friend in 1992 got mighty Amiga 500 with monitor and memory expansion, I have experienced multimedia and real operating system. If he did not got that A500, my next Amiga dream computer would be Sinclair QL, I was keen on even in 1996. I hear Linux kernel maker learn to code m68k ASM on it, maybe we could ask him to revisit it for 68080 kernel 😊
 
  I have not became musician, animator or coder. Amiga helped me to learn English, link with other Amigans (so rare), participate in local demo scene (Scene Strikes in Belgrade, shout to Corrosion) as member of Trancetherial and Zaiebani (Shaban in Space and Blackhill Experiment). I was admin of forums on “Fear of no carrier” local Amiga/DOS BBs on New Belgrade (Shout goes to Spider!). I also befrended DJ Nick, Amiga techno DJ that played at techno parties.To Amigans he is known for 1997 Warped demo and music for  Capital Punishment  At that time he used max pimped PPC Amiga to make music, demos and videos, work on local TV and produce trance and drum and bass,
  He today makes a lot for children, but has designed Page Stream website and best OS 4.1 skin and some gorgeous Amiga skins. Even he tries to beat influencers on You Tube with such smashing hits as “Mommy loves baby” and “Chickens” or my favourite “Ide Zmija”. I am pink elephant driving hilly-billy machine with Amiga logo in that last one 😊 So I was able to see what creative people can do with high end Amiga firsthand. At that time, I was unaware of fiasco with Capital Punishment and Myst porting adventures (ClickBoom sad story ... Canado-Serbians trying to revive and milk Amiga scene at same time ...)
  Once all went to Amiga Inc, I have tried to revive and support Amiga beyond OS 3.5 I also imported under yet not so normal circumstances. Even I had no hardware I purchased OS 4.1 Classic PPC, OS 4.1 SAM440, paid OS 4.1 beta x1000, prepaid OS 4.2, bought Enhancer package 1 and plan to register MorphOS.
  Have been active in Amiga Forums 2003 and ongoing (now only MorphZone, and Vampire forum, even my eyes have seen ... Moo Bunny!), and participated Anti CommodoreUSA campaign. I have supported multiple initatives,websites, kickstarters, ports and I am even bronze suppoter of Amigaworld.net, even I have earned unlimited restriction to post when I criticized Hyperion.
  So we can say I love to support, but expect decency and results. I have Hollywood license, EMOTION Video player licence, Amiga Forever, two AmiKit X, Viva Amiga, Loriano pagnis Ducky Zero keyboard with Amiga and Serbian keys etc. So I do try to support Amiga production worldwide, as much as I can from African economy in East Europe of periphal globalization and semi feudal capitalysm.

  PLANNED: None, just few more things for Vampire 4

--------------------------------------------------  
  What are your favorite activities on Amiga?
--------------------------------------------------

  It was my first typing machine, I loved my pirated Amiga Writer – and stil hope someone can update it!  I live of Text processing – students papers, social workers reports, science articles, materials for students etc. I never accepted Page Stream, maybe I am not DTP guy, even I like such tool exists on Amiga. And would love to see some such thing coming back. My biggest grundge on Amiga is – no one cares for WYSWYG text processing and my legal CED is too old school 😊 I will test PGS on my used but new Vampire and I hope I will be able to do some of my daily work even there, again. It also opened a communication world to me, as soon as I got modern. Chat/IRC, BlueWave format, simple Amiga browsing and Aminet leeching, hello! Voyager was my Amiga browser, sorry boys and girls!
  Surely I have played a lot. Until 1999 when that Amiga went back to holy place where CBM is (end of support, M$ would say 😊, it helped me survive and stay sane under OUN sanctions, civil wars, brutal national-fake socialism, NATO bombing and at least high school and half social workers studies. I enjoyed arcade quality of some games (we need Amiga Vamp remakes of Street Fighter, Pit Fighter, Golden Axe, Altered Beast and Final Fight – Amiga version sucks!) and not having to spend money on coins anymore. But being able to simulate submarine, tank, fighter bomber was also my joy. I love, Bubba Styx, Lost Vikings, Syndicate, Trexx Warrior and Hunter (even both eing OCS), Waxworks Transcartica Ishar3 and Hired Guns to this day, and would love to see such games. Also, History Line,  Laser Squad, Sabre Team, Xcom 1994 AGA, Deluxe Galaga were my thing and still are as I just enjoy Phoenix Point and Warblade, and dream of Amiga Vampire demake.
 
  Thanks to Amiga Translation Org I liked to use serbian.locale (worked until OS 4.1FE, in FE Update1 Hyperion managed to screw it). MorphOS has nice Serbian locale nowadays, and Aminet testifies a lot of Serbian/Bosnian/Croatian locales exist. But Amiga expanded my knowledge of English way more then simple apps or games I could use on 8-bits. But I liked Amiga was first multilanguage computer too, and say command was included in ... Micro$oft Amiga Basic on my friends A500

  In AmiKit XE I am able to use Magellan instantly, my favourite file manager of all times, alongside Dopus 4 (I even think of paying for Dopus on Windows and replacing Total Commander that has been so kind to me, since I stopped using Norton on Wintel). There I love having Directory Opus 4, Homebank, AmigaAmp and Eagle Player, Wet, AmiIRC, NetSurf, PicShow ... But also ability to access my Steam, VLC, Firefox, Chrome and Skype without leaving Workbench 😊

  On AmigaOne x1000 I have tried all flavours of Linux and all versions of AmigaOS 4.x that worked. I have tried all OS 4 software back and forth until 2018, and as much (and not much) of my old OS 3.x software that could work. I have enjoyed simpleMAIL, YAM, even Timberwolf, Hollywood, Emotion and few nice new applictions, or continued “shadows of past” (YAM is my e-mail love, only IRIS can compete)
  I use old iMac to learn MacOS X and  MorphOS I love it, partially IRIS and Wayfarer are very modern Internet solutions, but I dont have registered MOS, so I reboot every 30 minutes ☹ I wish some of MacOSX PPC apps were avail on MOS, as its way faster and resource effiecient.
-------------------------------------------------- 
  As na Amiga enthusiast, do you think that the Amiga with Vampire will remains a competitive machine?
--------------------------------------------------
  My soft spot now is bare and tiny V4SA. I never had FPGA board so I am very unhappy on how it is not similar to Amiga personal computer or any of computers I had. No HDDs, no DVDs, no SSD, very few expansion ports. At the same time, its reviving my experience and has potential to put it to next level. Its as Amiga as my OS 3.1 and OS 3.5 days were, and all I ever wanted (060+/RTG/128 FAST, 16GB storage even 16 bit audio and AIKIKO ...). If only software improves and gets up to it, I finally have ugly ducling that produces dreams. Hard to do, but most of things from my last A1200 backup do work.Even some things I have missed in Classic world. And I no longer wait half a day to single demo scene render in Imagine, Lightwave or real3D 😊
 
 
  FPGA market has revived all old machines, see MEGA Spectrum or second coming of Commodore 65 😊 Its nice, interesting evolution of upgradable hardware. I just wish FPGA gots so cheap a real board can be done around it with modern and Zorro III slots, running that 080 1Ghz with 1GB RAM, an SSD and Blue Ray. Would not be much larger machine, but with all personal computer legacy port and some new.
 
   --------------------------------------------------
  What is your opinion on AmigaOne X5000?
  --------------------------------------------------
 
  Its way more positive then with x1000. I wish I have waited for PVR Efficient CPUs to dry out and would save some money 😊  Unlike x1000, it has good Uboot, ethernet is supported, CPU and FPU is significantly better, RAM is more standard, runs MorphOS too, can accept RadeonRX card and production and support will be longer. X1000 is abandoned as Terron boards, but still has Altivec, more ports. Both share craze of destroying one PCI-E slot and add XMOS Chip manufacturer no longer uses onboard to mimic Amiga chipset exclusivity. It would be far better if FPGA Cyclone was put and GOLD3 chipset even with dedicated 080 CPU put on.
  Transition to PowerPC looked like savior day at that time. It was slow, hardware was unaviliable and MorphOS did started it earlier, with AROS approaching. Hadrware is not that bad, as my experience with constant milking and not so good software support. It was first time with x1000 I have retired an working Amiga System, and decided to keep AmiKit XE (Amiga Forever before it) and obtain myself an Vampire. Beside that, if I havent purchased x1000, I might be an x5000 owner. Its way younger then iMac G5 and can run decent Linux, while I still wait for my AmigaOS 4.2, prepaid and promised on early A1-x1000 promo materials 😊 Then maybe I would reasemble Nemo boards needs and try AmigaOS 4.x again, but I am sure it wont keep me happy enough. Not even with Enhancer 3. No Amiga backward chipset compatibility, no warp3D, terrible OS 3.x app incompatibilities and constant legal mambo jumbos and outsourcings of development, just cant make it. Worse then Duke Nukeum Forever development cycle.

   --------------------------------------------------
  Finally, do you have anything to say to the members of our community?
--------------------------------------------------
  I am quite fascinated people worldwide did not abandon Amiga after CBM demise. Here people did it more then in Argentina, USA, Poland or France. I love all revival efforts and gave them a fair try (even CUSA when they promised to develop AROS – and turned out to be con artists profiteering and history and brands and reskinning MINT as CommodoreOS)
  I would love to see concentrated effort, but until that day I am glad some of OS 4.x features are coming back to OS 3.2, that MorphOS is polished and stable and that I can enjoy Coffin and miKit XE, while waiting for ApolloOS that needs larger card. I hope you enjoy something similar – a experience of easy and friendly OS, where apps are simple and let you be in control. Tracking, hard drive swapping, notifications and other distructions are non existant. I could detect virus if ha rd drive LED blinked on A1200. Now I am sorry V4 early case does not have LEDs 😊 And also I could forgive no on/off switch not on case, only if it was on bulky transformator 😊
  Leave fun aside, I like most of Amiga enthusisasts. Amiga companies seems to be more of a trouble. So anarchosyndicalism unity of users and (hello Synderion! 😊 of Amiga Vampire Team approach bears fruits. Its slow but by Amigans for Amigans. I am looking forward to see more of software they will develop. I wish a lot more updates and apps for AROS, MorphOS, AmigaOS 4.x users too. Its us that can support it and make it. Think. Its unique, there is no real Amiga company since 1993, some say after selling team to CBM. But yet you have Amiga. Must be a dream 😊 And I like some claim their children love Amiga Style 😊 We need fresh blood. I was even happy (and sad at same time) seeing people buying A1-x5000 as their first Amiga, or early Amiga FPGA boards. We are not the future, unless we create it, but boy we do come from the past 😊 Call us old fashion, but me nah care! But even without my dreams, I like steady progress, on both FPGA core and software front, so finally fist time after Amiga Inc took over, I feel the present and the future for Amiga with Vampire line

  was able to access a second hand A500 with deluxe paint II, then deluxe paint III, IV and V, with
  my A1200. I draw pixel art for AMIGA in 16 and 32 colors and I develop games, I do them as a
  hobby.

  When I can I attend retro computer meetings and parties.
  I have more than 20 games published for AMIGA and a few game demos, slideshows, etc.

They will be end touch - extra, providing more human insight into people using Vampires or team members. Can also be separately published on Apollo related websites, if team decides so. Sort of promo, sort of human touch.

Idea is for FAQ to improve and grow to more useful promo manual - hanbdbook or so. To best of its extend, but if we make it that far :)

And currently I do better with interviews then finding people to fix the FAQ.

But partially you are right - they could have a separate thread.

Until FAQ is reshaped, no more will be published publicly, so its a bit "end road teaser".

But suggesting people to interview is open.
