The Apollo team, which develops the core for the FPGA-based vampire accelerator cards, is back from their summer vacation.
The team plans to be with "great surprises" at the Classic Computing 2018 (Oedheim-Degman, Germany) and the ?Alchimie V (Clérieux, France).
Furthermore, they are currently working actively on the Gold Core 2.11 for the Vampire V2.
This should increase the compatibility for "poorly programmed games" under WHDLoad and brings a further improvement of the FPU.
The latter is supposed to fix occasional problems with MacOS emulations in addition to the "Date Bug".
The A1k user Apollon promises in his contribution that during the summer the development of the Gold3 core has been driven vorward.
With the Gold3 Core, every Amiga equipped with a Vampire Accelerator Card should have the capabilities of an AGA Amiga.
The Apollo team is planning an alpha test of the Gold3 core for those interested and is currently creating a separate website for reporting any bugs.
The Vampire V4, which has already been announced for a long time, is still in the active development process, with people from the manufacturer Altera also being involved in the adaptation process to the better FPGA (Cyclone V).
