I used to have an A500, 1200 and 3000T back in the day. The 3000T was my BBS box. I don't have any of these computers anymore, however I recently purchased an A500+.
I just opened up the A500+ and it looks very clean, battery hasn't leaked yet, thankfully.
I still have some stuff I need to do with it, like getting a 110V PSU, etc.
Let's assume I would pop in a Vampire V4 when it's released.
Do I need to worry about updating the Kickroms? 2.04 is currently installed.
Do I need to buy an Indivision ECS? From what I have been seeing in Videos I would still need to switch between ECS and SAGA until the SAGA drivers are installed? Is it perhaps possible to avoid having a flickerfixer by using ApolloOS with preinstalled drivers? What about native games, do they output on the V4's HDMI output or ECS?
I assume a floppy drive emulator such as Gotek or HxC are not necessary because of the SDcard on the vampire?
What about chip-ram? For the indivision it's recommended to upgrade to 2MB. I assume the V4 will take over all memory anyway?
What else do I need to prepare this system for the V4?
When can we buy the V4???
