Vampire 600: Power of Vampire - game testings ADoom
Posted on Friday, August 16 2013 @ 13:29:28 CDT by majsta

For some of you this may not look so strange at all but to me, person who actually never had an Amiga before, it was quite surprise to see Doom running on A600. Yes that's because Vampire 600 is doing acceleration but still I had so much questions in my mind looking at this. Without "real" graphic card, without any serious hardware and comparing that to minimum requirements for PC version gives me permission to say PC is just a trash, who stayed alive all of those years because people those days just don't know about anything else. To play PC version of Doom I had to spend serious amount of money back in the days and still game was not playable. On the paper 486 CPU is much better than older CPU's from MC68K series. Some versions are capable of 50Mips or more but for playing this type of games we needed graphic card, sound card and at least 8MB of memory so comparing Amiga 600 with all of this makes me smile. Small machine sitting on the table and able to perform much more than 486 in huge, heavy case with tons of cables and power consumption 10 times greater than A600.

After today's testing I think that I m proud to myself more than ever. Hey!!! I created my own hardware, in some basement, able to play 3D game, able to play Doom. Imagine!!!

Hi, 20 years too late but nice to see it.
Perhaps it might be more usefull with Indivision ECS ?

There is version of ADoom 1.4 on Aminet who supports Indivision ECS and uses his resources. So basically performance with Indivision ECS + accelerator are exactly 3 times better so game for those who own such device is totally playable. Also number of colors is increased to 256. Since I don't have it I m unable to prove that but I m shore that someone who pre-ordered Vampire 600 has it so can prove it.
