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
Audio testing

 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 one through a Nullmodem or a selfmade
 parallelport -cable
*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 bootable ISO file (can be an older version)
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!!!)

Use right combination of VATestprogram, ROM version and .dat file, or it may
give problems. (terminal mode hanging/wrong symbols/not working, bad loading of
.dat file).  Older versions are included in the package so you can work with an
older ROM version of the program.

Update 5.7b
At diskdrive screen, Wait on Word SYNC from disk at writing option added
At diskdrive screen, program can try to find WordSync from disk when all SYNC
 is disabled.  The estimated Sync Number keeps jumping and sometimes get found
Going through menus with a mouse or joystick it will use a buttoncounter insted
 of a mouse memorymap, which give less problems when program is in bad memory
Program will do a fast check on chipmem used for program and report if it is
 failing, it will give an error message on the mainscreen, some tests make use
 of the chipmem and may fail if the chipmem is not oke
CIA with "show counting" off will also not show counting for the combined
More polygons added for line&fill test
Some work on the guide of program
Adjust color screen has big color bars
DisplaySettings screen
!You may damage your monitor when set wrong, because you can send all kinds of
 frequency signals that the monitor don`t like!  DisplayPlus screen is locked
Displaysetting will start with the older settings that was used before for the
 31/24khz test
On Mainscreen with program unlocked you can hold RMB and press D to goto the
On The displaymenuscreen you can press D to show the monitor screentest
DisplaySettings All Alice/Agnus registers added for a none standard Amiga
 Display, you can also select a resolution in BPLCON0 register
Older Kickstart will look for files in VAT:, name of disk is changed to VAT:
 this way you can install the program any where you want and the files for
 the program can be found in any drawer when using an assign for VAT:
Reading and copy disk will use standard error codes
 1 Less Sectors on read  2 No SYNC  3 No sync for next sector  6 read checksum
  error  8 Verify Error

 show the CPU mips speed while switching DMA channels with DMA load.
 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
 one readout.

 per second
WaitForIndex will make the readdiskdata tests wait for a rotation of the
 diskmotor. Distance of found data in memorydump diskdrive should be more

Monitor function for AddressLine tests, will show data bits on lines.  Can also
 be used for a single address.  Will show first address and bits set.
First addresslines that have no purpose to test on more data bits are removed
When putting zero addresslines, in monitor test it will not correct any
 addresses from 16bits only 8bits alignment, it will also not block any
 address ranges.
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
 base address from the address test it self.
Adding addresses to addresstest while running pressing A, you can fill in
 an address and the bussize.
(Q)uick button next to monitor in addressscreen to start with only one address
NOCACHE cli command option added
CACHE cli command option added
NOPAD cli command to start CD32 mode with a mouse and not a joypad
NOCD32 cli command to not check for CD32. Unfortunately it gives a bus
 exception when ussing the Akiko ID register readout on an A4000.  To be sure
 you can disable the CD32 check if you amigas hangs on booting of the program.
Program now also have a config file. You can type the words from the cli
 commands in the text file. ; in front of the words dont work.
Protection on head move loop when no track zero sensor works!
Holding ESC 5 seconds on keyboardscreen will jump to mainscreen.
CD32 bug fix for hanging on CIA testscreen
Keyboard transmit error bug removed entering keyboardscreen with keyboard
EatFastmem Program will now load in chipmem so it can eat more.
VATQuickDisk Some bugs removed
ROMUpdate 28.2
Importand bug removed.  Early exceptions caused a crash of program because no
 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
start farther.

Update 5.0b
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
 unlimited amount.
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.
More Easy to remove lockmode in aboutscreen
Small program added in C directory for removing most fastmem, the testprogram
 can then run from chipmem only.
Bug fixes.
 Made alot smaller and can boot from disk.  Is 9 diskblocks large.

 chance it can load from disk.
Less use of customchip registers on roomboot to avoid problems when custom
 chip lines are bad.
Pre CPU exception errors output a letter on serial and parallelport
Pre IRQ activation will output a letter on serial and parallelport
Bug fixing
BPLPRI test bug removed
Hanging on Serial register int stuck bug removed
!Letter codes will wait abit and output a return also on serial and also
 parallel if it is set on.
!Rom files added for A1000 64kb, will use bootstrapROM startaddress, these ROMs
 have not been tested on a real A1000 and are experimental!  Interrupts
 probably work.
!65kb ROM file added for A1000 emulation

Update 4.9b
RealTime mode added for Hex viewer
Parallelcable can be used in terminalmode and works between two Amigas

 for checking stuck bits.  RMB will try to activate bits for testing and change
 mode also from each chip to each register for marking bits not stuck.
Can scroll up and down with keyboard in terminalscreen boot info and errors
ROMUpdate 26
-Hold fire button on 2e joymouseport on boot and let go when screen will show
 bluepurple, if parallelport all bits are high then it will enter parallelmode

 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
-Flashing screen will skip when a nullmodem is connected and terminalmode is
 open on the other computer.
