An Amiga TestProgram for all Amigas. Remove hardware from the parallelport
when doing tests on this port and real interrupt testing. Don`t use
Amitestkit or diagrom testplugs! Remove parallelport testplug when done
using the program.
Main features include:
AGA, ECS and OCS screen tests
CD32 joypad testing (insert first)
Vampire joypad testing (buggy)
MMU testing (write protect test only)
Addressline testing (read guide!)
Real Interrupt testing
Interrupt Request testing
Chip ID readout
Akiko CD32 testing (Force CD32 in configscreen or open CD32 Screen to get more
testing in other tests, (interrupt and "CIA/"Akiko-TOD switching PAL/NTSC)
AutoConfig/Zorro testing (Zorro3/(2?) not working on real hardware)
Controlling one Amiga with another one through a null modem cable
*For master start terminal other Amiga will be slave automatic on mainscreen.
TestPackage include EPROM file single socket 68000(+)
TestPackage include EPROM files double sockets 68020(+)
TestPackage include EPROM file single socket 68020(+) CD32
TestPackage include ROM files for emulators
(BUG! versions 3.6b to 4.1b don`t work on an A4000 with 030!)
(BUG! versions 3.6b also dont work on an A4000 with other CPUs!)
(ROM13.2 to 18 same problem!!!)
Use right combination of VATestprogram, ROM version and .dat file, It may give
Problems. (terminal mode hanging/wrong symbols, bad loading of .dat file)
Older versions are included in the package so you can work with an older ROM
version of the program.
