advanced chipset - clock settings

i have a problem:
if i remove check before "compatible" to be able to set rtc to msm6242b and then set to "compatible" again,
settings for "battery backed up clock" return to "none" again. how can i set rtc and still stay compatible?
have an older configuration, where clock is set and "compatible" is checked. why not work in a new config?

"Compatible" only means settings are based on Chipset Extra setting in Chipset panel.

You probably (always include config!) have A500 config without trapdoor memory = no RTC. It may have been incorrectly set in some very old version.

Generic = Configuration that does not have any hardware specific special features and/or they look like emulated but aren't really there. Pseudo-compatible for programs that expect hardware but don't really need it. Was more useful in the past when for example built-in IDE was not emulated but without it boot time was really long or it never booted. Don't use if you want to emulate accurate configurations.

Custom = "compatible" not ticked.

Velvet = Amiga prototype hardware. (Search if you want more information)

thx, so what should i use if i want to have compatibe/accurate configurations with rtc?
a500 and a600 are already excluded as they are missing this "trapdoor memory".

What kind of config you are trying to set up? A500 and A600 did not have built-in clock&battery. It came with most "trap door" memory expansions.

Only A500+ had built-in clock (and battery that leaks and destroys the mainboard..)

should be a600, just with rtc clock as bonus. i know, it didn't have rtc in reality.

Then untick "compatible" and do any custom adjustments you want but don't try anything too impossible.
