Well, I'm supposed to be getting one from Sloopy.......

Nice looking boards. I guess depends on how much this is I may get one for a 1200XL.

Great:)

Is it possible to use a slightly larger fpga so that the VGA core can be used with the full features?

I know I want at least 1 for my 130xe. I am sure I will be getting others as soon as I see how the first one works. Most likely I will get 3

What is the difference between the XE and XL versions? Which would be best for modding a 5200?

Is the 1200XL considered an "XL" for this VBXE?? I know sometimes it's not "XL" enough.

Translation:
Apparently each have a different adapter (although each page states it comes with an XE/XEGS adapter ;)). As a 5200 is closest to a 400, I don't think you'll have any luck using a VBXE on one without creating your own, [likely much] more complicated adapter board. Sounds like a cool idea though!

On the preorder page, it seems the only difference in the XL version and XE/XEGS version is an adapter board. The VBXE 2.1 is the same for both, correct?? If so, is there an option to buy 1 board with both adapters??
