Hi
I just want to show you the nice progress made by the team on the integration of the AGA chipset into the Apollo core. There is still a lot of work to do, but I'm pleased to show you 8 games, included an AGA one, running right now on the Vampire. On the video, you can see that we only use the HDMI cable to carry the chipset picture and sound to the monitor, therefore we are all digital ! The display is done in true 50Hz, so there is no tearing and no frame droping while displaying. It's as smooth as the original PAL displayed version. No configuration, don't need to tune up the prefs : it's just work out of the box. But we don't stop there : we have a nice complex scanline effect that simulate the rendering of the old beloved CRT monitor. So, best of both world : smoth without tearing, scanlined, but displayed without flickering on a modern display via the Digital plug.
Enjoy !
