It is not latest but only recent changes are interrupt timing test changes which are still work in progress.

Hi Toni, quick question: I've read that extra hardware is required to do bus error testing. What kind of hardware would I need?

I don't think you can get that hardware, it was repurposed Individual computers 68000/010 "A1200 accelerator" test board. (I got it because I for example did software for ACA500 and ACA500+). It isn't that complex, it has jumpers to select few different address spaces and one jumper to select if read or write access generates bus error when accessing selected address space.

It is almost useless feature anyway, none of 68000/010 based Amigas can generate bus errors. Only reason I did it because it was possible and UAE core is used by Hatari Atari ST emulator and Atari ST uses bus errors. And I don't think there are any Atari ST programs that expect bus error side-effects. Like long access only doing low or high word part of instruction or condition codes being only partially updated etc. Behavior is similar to address errors.

Thanks for the details answer! I was just curious about what kind of hardware was used. I already expected some kind of comparator triggering a bus error when the address on the address bus (partially) matches the selected one.

Yesterday I tried to create 68010 address error tests with the following options:

feature_target_src_ea=0x37fff1,0x7111
feature_target_dst_ea=
feature_undefined_ccr=1
mode=all

It works if cpu equals 68000, but if cpu=68000 is replaced by cpu=68010, zero tests are generated. Am I doing something wrong?

I don't know. There has been lots of changes since last "stable" version. (Current version is not address/bus error tested, it most likely is broken)

Does same happen with AEDST?

Next version has nice quality of life update: no more dozens of tiny files but single big file (with configurable max before it gets split) that is "streamed" during test run (memory requirements are not increased).

And of course 68000 IPL test but that won't get published too quickly
(EDIT: IPL test needs serial port TX to RX jumper and cycle-accurate serial port emulation + interrupt emulation. No external hardware needed anymore)

AEDST is working. Only AESRC seems to be broken.

I am looking forward to the next version. Sounds very promising!
