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 testing
Joystick and Mouse testing
CD32 joypad testing (insert first)
Vampire joypad testing (buggy)
Keyboard testing (CDTV extra keys)
MMU testing (write protect test(040/060) and registers)
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).
CD32 NVRAM testing (Not for ROM version will use nonvolatile.library)
CDTV NVRAM testing (experimental)
CDTV Card testing (experimental)
AutoConfig testing not working on real hardware? and only on ROM
Controlling one Amiga with another computer or receive debug data through a
Nullmodem or a selfmade parallelport -cable. Serial Speed is 57600 Baud and
works with WinUAE 5.1.0 in transmit only mode. For ROM boot info you can also
use a PC program that can receive ASCII over a COMport.
*CD32 will use joypad control on boot (hold lmb for 6 sec to use mouse)
*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 EPROM files doublesocket A1000 (experimental!)
TestPackage include ROM files for emulators (524kb use 020+ and 64kb=A1000!)
TestPackage include ISO file (can be an older version, no boot CDTV/CD32)
(you can make your own bootable ISO, use ISOCD from CD32-devkit)
TestPackage include QuickDisk (diskdrive tests only)
(BUG! versions 3.6b to 4.1b don`t work on an A4000 with 030!)
(BUG! version 3.6b also dont work on an A4000 with other CPUs!)
(ROM13.2 to 18 same problem!!!)
If you use an older ROM version, use right version of VATestprogram. It may
give problems. Terminal mode hanging/wrong symbols/not working. Older
versions of VATestprogram are included in the package.
Many changes to program to work with different sizes of chipmemory
Vampire joypad screen fixes and is working oke
Vampire wheel mouse test, not working for now?

Work on guide (diskdrive screen use)
ROM Update 30.4
-No Copperlist use when no usable chipmem detected fix in program
-CIA timer test fix, if no memory can`t be used to program will output CIA
counting, no VBL waiting is used for this and different counting on each
different CPU speed etc Amigas
-when VBR table can`t be moved will auto shut down interrupts in use in program
this will happen when first chipmem is faulty for a 68000 CPU
-maybe fix memory test without working VBR table what can happen with no
chipmem, it will use no interrupts in that case

You can test how much CPU to chipmem speed is lost when there is other DMA
Pressing H for hires mode DMA speedtest
Pressing L for lowres mode DMA speedtest
Pressing S for superhires mode DMA speedtest
DiskDriveTests can work with Highdensity disks but Paula can not always read
enough data from disk for one Track, so it will not always read all sectors in

When putting zero addresslines, in monitor test it will not correct any
addresses from 16bits only 8bits alignment, it will also not block any
Poking in memory possible when pressing P in the addresstest it self, input
data to poke and then address, when enter press rightaway it will use the

pointers where ready at the beginning of the chipmem after rom overlay
Exception and early interrupt error colors longer on screen
When parmode is set on it will skip some of them customchipregisters such as
the color code to color 0 with an exception.
After parmode check and parmode was not set and you have an early exception it
will not output on the parport to avoid cia activity.
Moving some CIA settings to later in the program so there is more chance it can
Customchip registerstest can be used over terminalmode but is slow
Less restrictions on diskdrive use in lock mode
Diskdrive screen button changes
Diskswaptest with better protection of stepping to highertrack on last track
Repeat option when reading all tracks. Disks with errors will keep trying,
this can remove abit of errors on disks, number 99 will keep trying for
Head Move Loop; will just send the heads up and down. It may remove some
dust inside a disk Max is 50 times.
Terminalscreen scrolling removed to gain speed
Terminalscreen will now clear a line after printing, needed when looping back
text with to much text on the screen(buffer).
Terminalscreen can now also show only hex numbers, configscreen have a switch
Terminal wil use alot more memory that is there anyways for the text on the
screen. More lines before it will loop back.
Program can use CLI arguments to not use exceptions and unlock the program
right away. These are AVOIDCHIP, UNLOCK and NOEXCEPTIONS you type behind the
cli command VATestprogram. These only work from ROM 2.04 and up. (use /?)
NOEXCEPTIONS will skip exception changes and storing and tests with exceptions!
Some CPUboards and running software may not like the use of some exceptions.
AVOIDCHIP will move the buttonscreen to fastmem if any, some tests will
use the buttonscreen memory also.
Harddisk readout and C2P test moved to buttonscreen memory.
Program will verify chipmem that is reserved for program and with a fault
will move the buttonscreen to fastmem if any.

-ROM that have no working memory will output some tests on the serialport
with text (CIA timers/ CIA register test, some customchip register tests and
output interrupt requestregister (you can check for interrupt activity)
-ROM 3 boot stages will output S1, S2, S3
-If other memory is used for program, it will output this on the serial
