8 MB Chip + some slow ram fails

I have just tried this configuration:
8 MB Chip + some slow ram

Early at startup, the WinUAE log displays:

Code:
CPU tracer enabled
PAL mode V=50.0804Hz H=15625.0881Hz (227x312+0) IDX=10 (PAL) D=0 RTG=0/0
CPU tracer disabled
Broken mapping, size=20, realsize=800000
Start is 0
Then the EmuTOS floppy quickly crashes.

I suspect this is a WinUAE bug (because of the above log), even if I have no clear evidence.

Full config is required. What happens depends on much more than just memory size values.

You can easily reproduce the problem like this:
- Run winuae.exe -log
- Quickstart > Model A500
- RAM > Chip 8 MB, Slow 1 MB
- Start

Then observe the "Broken mapping" message at the end of the log.

Fixed. It affected non-jit compatible modes.

Just out of interest; what A500 has 8MB Chip & 1MB Slow in the real world?

An emulated one? Emulators are part of "the real world" too.

The question really is, what kind of TOS emulator usage would benefit from such a thing.

Yeah, that's all my Amiga world has been since 2005 and loving it (cheers Toni)

I had an A500 / KS 1.3 / 512KB Chip & 512KB RAM when I was 14-15 years old from memory.

Anyway, I try to keep my WinUAE configuration files as close to real hardware as best as possible.

Never have I heard of an A500 with more than 2MB Chip (given real expansion options) so hence the question...

No Amiga has ever had more than 2 MB.

Whatcha gonna do, "stone the blasphemer!"?

I think I've twigged why maybe religious topics are banned here. For some people, the Amiga is a belief system. Not quite an organized religion, but it certainly seems to have taboos all of its own, lines you just can't cross, without upsetting somebody else.

I suggest such people read Plato, "The Republic". Very astute observations on why unfounded belief can be a crock of the brown stuff.

He answered a simple question with a fact. What the hell are you going on about?
