    Hi,

    decided to leave the A500 stock, but still looking for someone who would recap it for me.

    Thanks for reading.

    there is an excellent pictured tutorial how to convert 8A board to full A500+
    http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=77705
    personally i don't see any advantage to install high resolution DENISE, since colour palette will be then limited to 4 colours only..
    regards,

    Hey, thanks for the advice!
    I saw that tutorial and had almost decided to try it myself. But I have 2 left hands and the warnings regarding temperature have put me off.
    I'd rather pay a pro to do it for my before I fry my beloved Amiga.
    Would you be willing to do the conversion and recap?
    I'll be taking care of the Kickstart myself, trying to find a source in Germany with ROM + diskettes for 3.1.4 at the moment.

    Thanks for the tip regarding DENISE, I'll keep her untouched then.
