My Vampire 500 v2+ Compatibility List

About the Compatibility List

Recently I purchased a Vampire card for my Amiga 500 from Amigastore.eu. The card works very well and has injected new life into the old workhorse.

My Amiga 500 has only got 512KB of Chip-RAM. This can make it difficult to run various games, demos and programs. While the Vampire comes with 128MB Fast-RAM on-board, the lack of enough Chip-RAM is a well-known problem when trying to run games with WHD-Load.

This is why I’ve started writing a list of games and programs that works right away with my setup (Amiga 500, Kickstart 3.1, 512KB Chip-RAM, 128MB Fast-RAM, Vampire 500 v2+, 4 GB HD, Gold Core 2.5)

Testing procedure is as follows:

– Boot up the computer to Workbench
– Double click on icon
– Game boots or doesn’t boot (note down error message if there is one)
– If the game boots, play for a little while to see if it is stable

Please keep in mind that the results below are from my own tests and that it is not written in stone. As you know with Amiga, sometimes what does work on one setup does not work on another. 😉 However, I’m pretty sure it is quite accurate. If you’ve got some feedback, please feel free to post me a few lines to punivoid@protonmail.com or use the contact-sheet on this website. Cheers!
