I have received the Merlin board fast. However the board was not protected in an anti-static bag, it was just amongst a bunch of papers, that's unusual.
So i will leave feedback only after i have tested the board.

17th January 2013, 12:13
Its not clear if you do or do not have the A2000 motherboard still. If so interested pending delivery charges.

17th January 2013, 16:14
yes the merlin card was well protected in newspaper bag.
Test your card and give me feedback, by the way thank for the trade.

Is my post visible?

17th January 2013, 21:32
I have just tested the XPert Merlin board in my A500Plus with zorro side slot and it seems to be detected fine. I assume it is working but i won't install it in my A2000 before next week, so leaving feedback now. Thanks.

17th January 2013, 22:31
Thanks for the trade
Thanks for feedback

19th January 2013, 01:59
alpehut, would you please merge post #22 into post #1. It would be helpful for Mods to follow the thread.

Thank you.

24th January 2013, 17:24
Are you sure that the Merlin board has been fixed for 68060?
I have installed it in my A2000 in replacement of my GVP Spectrum, i have setup compatible screenmodes for my TFT, but i have a lot of garbage and freezes. Seems like the 68060 CPU problem...

24th January 2013, 19:25

This chip should be marked as 25-2 if the 060 fix was made, according to the author website.
So, the so-called hardware fix has been made, but not the 060 fix.
I am not pleased at all. I can't get the card to work and i lost several hours trying ot. The seller said the 060 fix was made.

24th January 2013, 21:52
@Alpehut: you connected to Amibay tonight but did not answer my posts. We need an answer here about that 060 fix please.

25th January 2013, 09:00
Alpehut, have you experienced similar problems with the card. Are these easily fixable problems?

25th January 2013, 11:22
we have payed for tiis fix and are a 060 fix, i have maby some documents showing this, i will see if i still have this.

25th January 2013, 17:06
Thank you, could you please also see if you know of any reason for why Xanxi is experiencing the problems he is?

25th January 2013, 18:00

this graphicscard are made a full 060fix and was running on my 060 machine
and also proper on the phase 5 PPC board


i will find out if we still have document showing this card was fixed
but this are maby no longer i the firm any longer, i will see if i can find invoice
showing this.

/ Alpehut

i never had any problems with this card, and was working perfectly for me

25th January 2013, 18:02
At http://www.ingenieurbuero-riedel.de/merl_faq.txt, we can read:

9. How can I see if the 060 update is done?
On IC25 should be written: "25-2"
If there is only "25" or nothing then the 060-fix isn't done
The 060-Fix is included in the normal update since april 1996.

I have posted a picture with a big "25" on that chip, no 25-2.
So it is perfectly clear that the 060 fix has not been made.

The wires soldered at the back and the 3 hand written chips confirm that the "hardware fix" has been made, but the board lacks the 060 fix.
Unfortunately, i only have 68060 boards, and i am not willing to downgrade to use the Merlin.
I have bought in confidence the board, but now we have to found a solution either to get that board fix or reverse the trade.

25th January 2013, 18:15
i will se if can find the old documentation from riedel, problems are Riedel not have anything on this graphicscard so they can΄t lookback to find out.

working proper in my Amiga 4000 / PPC add so if
this fix are not done i think the card will not working in PPC
"not the case, workinf fine in my PPC"

? what kind of problems do you have.
* maby not the greatist Graphics card but are working

25th January 2013, 18:19
I have mailed Ingenieurbuero Riedel and he's going to confirm the 060 fix is missing, and if the replacement chips can be bought i am counting on you to pay for them. Otherwise, as the card is working for you, you are welcome to take it back.
I am experiencing all the problems mentionned in the FAQ: graphical glitches, random colors, freezes and crashes. This A2000 is 100% stable without that board.

Again, just read the FAQ:

9. How can I see if the 060 update is done?
On IC25 should be written: "25-2"
If there is only "25" or nothing then the 060-fix isn't done
The 060-Fix is included in the normal update since april 1996

Pic is upside-down, that's not 52 , that's 25.

25th January 2013, 18:40
send me prices for 060 fix PM
if i see the price are to high i rater have it back

have you looking for "refresh" jumper, under sim ramslot
i this are not set correct i will make crashes to the system

Amiga 4000 040 will not effect this crash only Amiga 3000 / and 2000
i think this are problems with Zorro 2 slot and remember to set
jumper J1 to zorro 2 if you are using Amiga with Z2

have you read the docu i delicered, a copy from riedel
In fact forkare you to set the jumpers right to get it to run

26th January 2013, 16:43
Mr. Riedel has answered my email and he confirms that the board lacks the 25-2 chip for the 060 fix. He can sell me a replacement chip and i have already paid 11,78 EUR for it to replace it myself.

26th January 2013, 20:16
but now we have to found a solution either to get that board fix or reverse the trade

i will pay 12 € send me PM for info wher i can send money 2

/ Alpehut

27th January 2013, 10:21

Mr. Riedel selling ( original ) usermanual to this card.
i was able to get a copy from him, you can ask if he still have one left

27th January 2013, 11:10
I confirm that i have received your money for the chip.
Now i just have to wait for the replacement chip to arrive.

31st January 2013, 11:51
Here is the 25-2 chip from Riedel.
Will install it soon.
