boards.library README 04/Feb/2018 Introduction: This library decodes manufacturer IDs and product IDs of Amiga autoconfig hardware. So - in short - it'll show you what stuff there is inside your machine and who made it. It's supported by other tools which provide information about your system, like "WhichAmiga" by Harry Sintonen or Report+ by James Jacobs. Version information: This release has been developed and tested on various Amiga hardware, both real and emulated, but may contain bugs, crash your machine and frighten your cat. - boards.library (V3.42) + added Wicher 500i by Artur "7-bit" Gadawski + added BigRam 2630 by IComp + added ACA1233n in 020-mode + added ACA1233n Rev 1. in 030 and 020 mode + added ATL HDI Ultrasound video capture card + fixed a bug that led to PicassoIV modules inheriting other expansion's serial number (thanks go to Jasmin68k for reporting) + fixed a really stupid bug which falsely triggered the serial rewrite routine in rare cases (thanks go to Robert Miranda for putting me on the right track) + added recognition for ConneXion network cards running in A2065 emulation mode (feedback needed, thanks go to analogkid & Scrat) + changed IDs for Zorro IDE/LAN/Clockport card by buggs/Matze/Scrat - showboards (V2.15) + fixed a bug that would show some Zorro II cards as Zorro III and vice versa + Kick 1.x machines no longer crash (you still need to use showboards 1.x, though) + ProductID is now displayed correctly as byte-sized - 661 boards (including variants) known Developer information: If you're developing a new piece of hardware for M68k-Amigas, please read the according section of (enclosed in the archive). If you're a software developer and still use the 2.x release, you MUST check out the modified API. The archive contains full developer documentation and include-files for C and assembly language. *Your help is needed* Get your weirdest and latest expansion boards out of your storage boxes, run showboards on your machine and give me your feedback every time you encounter an unknown board or anything strange. And if you are/were a developer of hardware yourself and know some details about you cards' serial information encoding, let me know as well. I also enjoy "showboards"-outputs of fully loaded machines or those containing rare pieces of hardware. Yes, developers' needs can be quite simple. ;-) You can reach me via:
