In the case of the video, it's "chipcache". The guys even read in the readme that "chipcache" is only supported by ACA1230 and ACA630, but not on other cards. Still, they're trying over and over again to activate chipcache.

Each and every option is explained in the readme. For every option, there's a sentence that says which card supports this, and which one doesn't. It's not all that complex. Heck, there's even a hint at the next accelerator I'll be making, and nobody has found it. I wonder why I'm taking the time to write that documentation if you guys keep ignoring it.

You could make finding the information for a certain product easier, though. Before downloading 1.7 from a link by you in this thread I visited the product page for ACA630, and like most of your product pages, they have no links to drivers or manuals. When resellers sell out your batches, the product pages with any links to drivers or manuals may be removed.

You put in a lot of time to develop high-class products, so why not spend a few minutes making your company page a showcase of products with correct drivers and/or manuals? I realize of course that you're (virtually?) a one-man firm, but as a friendly suggestion your site needs some love. Some of your currently/recently selling products aren't even there among the products. It's the place every fan will go when they want to shop for your inventions.

And manuals aren't written with average attention span in mind, lucky that! They are written by companies to document usage, requirements, and features of products. We'd all love to be able to use and supply technical support for your products in 2020 here in forums. If you get what I mean.

And I know you know what I mean if I say any Amigan is desperate to get a 1% faster Amiga. That's why you put "don't even think about overclocking" on the ACA. So you know why they were behaving "irrationally" in the video
