Neat!  As the poster on EAB said, "Why would someone want to twiddle Ramsey?"  What sort of things can you do with it?

The EAB poster's question was answered on EAB (Sorry, I don't like repeating my answers). :rolleyes:

No worries, sounds like a fun tool.  Great work, as usual!  :)

I still have an A2091 halfway done sitting here on my shelf, I swear I'm going to finish your 14MHz hack on that thing, one of these days! :D

Nice, i cant wait to mess with this, i have 50ns 4mb simms in the 4000's i have so this should be a chance to see if there are any memory speed gains!

Sorry mech,

The current release of RamseyConfig doesn't support skip mode for reasons explained in greater detail on the EAB thread. You are probably one of the very few users who could use that mode with a good degree of reliability but I can't justify supporting it for such very rare cases... :rolleyes:

But you should still be able to use the page and max. refresh modes without any problems. ;)

** NEWS UPDATE **

v1.1 Released!

Some useful improvements
- Added code to parse multiple arguments
- Simplified argument message code

UPDATE INFO:
The new multiple argument parsing code (since v1.1) has the
following limitations:
- Delimiters must be either spaces or commas
- The maximum number of arguments accepted is 4
- The first invalid argument terminates the argument search

** 2ND NEWS UPDATE **

v1.2 Released!
RamseyConfig now works more like a "Standard" Shell tool!
- Replaced custom argument parsing code with ReadArgs()
- Replaced paired SuperState()/UserState() calls with single
     Supervisor() calls

UPDATE INFO:
The new ReadArgs() parsing code (since v1.2) now accepts up to 4 arguments but you must use the full argument name. Also, delimiters must be spaces.

Okay, RamseyConfig is due for an update (Thanks to macce2 for helping me realize this). :)

PAGE mode will absolutely crash the machine for A4000 users. Therefore, this option should be disabled permanently in this case. However, BURST mode will not always crash the machine for A4000 users (even though they won't be able to use it).

This is a situation which IMO, requires user feedback. So, I will wait a while to see what kind of feedback is given before releasing the next update. ;)

** 5TH NEWS UPDATE **

v1.5 Replaced A3000 bonus code test with Lisa test. In most cases,
hardware model detection should be more reliable than
software model detection.
