Yes, but the logic needs to be changed so it does not bug the user unless he insists on a deep scan, not the other way round (as it is a the moment)

That remains to be seen - I already considered setting "nocustom" as standard two or free releases ago. But I had the suspicion that more people would complain about "WhichAmiga/showboards won't show my ACA-card" than about the output of enforcer, which even today is a geek tool used by a really small percentage of Amigans.

And people who run enforcer usually read documentation.

When you update a simple lib, you never expect to have such dramatic changes, that's why it stresses.

As I wrote you: You'll get an ENV-var.

New version (3.3) available on Aminet - thanks go to many testers and especially to Michael for the installer and the wonderful showboards-icon!

boards.library README 26/Apr/2016

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.

Changes for V3.3:

- boards.library
+ lib now skips custom recognition routines if Draco or Amithlon machine detected
+ introduced ENV-Var (BOARDS_CUSTOMCHECK) setting it to 0 will permanently disable custom detection routines
+ added VillageTronic / PicassoIV module detection (custom detection routine)
+ PicassoIV ECS Flickerfixer
+ PicassoIV AGA Flickerfixer
+ Pablo II video module
+ Picasso IV Video Capture
+ Paloma TV tuner (PAL)
+ added Concierto sound card
+ added IComp ACA500, ACA1221 & ACA1221EC (custom detection routine)
+ added IComp ACA500+
+ added IComp ACA1233n
+ added FPGAArcade (formerly registered as Minimig)
+ added Jochheim Tuning Access 32 Memory expansion
+ added E3B Prisma Megamix
+ E3B ZorRam is now also Bigram+ (same ID)
+ added UAE bootrom I/O
+ added Z3SDRam RAM Expansion by Tim Tashpulatov
+ added dm9k Network Card by Tim Tashpulatov
+ added ZEUS turbocard by KyroFlux Ltd.
+ added Matze's IDE controller by A1k.org
+ added Minimig expansions by Rok Krajnc
+ added Minimig Z2 FastRAM
+ added Minimig Z3 FastRAM
+ added Minimig Z3 EthernetCard
+ added Minimig Z3 GraphicsCard
+ added Minimig Z3 SoundCard
+ serial rewrite for E3B ICY & Kyroflux ZEUS

- showboards (V2.12)
+ new modes "VERBOSE" and "EXPERT" provide a lot more human/geek-readable information about your boards
+ output exceeding window height is paused until next keypress (N=NOPAUSE to disable)
+ can now be run from Workbench
+ supports most CLI-arguments as tooltypes when launched via icon

- 647 boards (including variants) known

I believe it's called "KryoFlux" rather than "KyroFlux". I hope this is not spelled wrong in the library too. ;-)

Anyway, nice work!

Can't say right now, but the listed card is unfortunately not available and another board might be coming real soon. Also we have a major release here, which is the first in more than 2 years - people are going to find bugs and thus won't have to wait that long for a V3.31.

Thanks for reporting!

Edit: checked the source - the labels are "Kyro", but the returned strings are "Kryo". All right, then.

Well, those look interesting - what hardware is that?

I think those are components for e.g. the MiST-board, but it is up to the developer to explain this in more detail.

The latest versions of ShowBoards need ENV: to be assigned. This was not the case in earlier versions (e.g. 3.16).

As I start ShowBoards very early in my Startup-sequence I wonder if you could add an option that prevents ENV: access.

Why is ENV: accessed anyway?

It opens ENV:BOARDS_CUSTOMCHECK. I don`t know if it helps but try switch NC=NOCUSTOM/S ("Showboards NC").

IIRC, the ENV-Var is being checked by the library itself, not showboards.

If I wanted to prevent the checks I'd have to introduce a new option for the library's API especially for the purpose, which would be really bad style. I'll have to think about a more elegant solution.

In the meantime, you can circumvent this problem easily by putting your ENV:-assignment before the showboards call in startup-sequence. It doesn't even harm to put it right on top of startup.

Thnak you very much for considering it.
