Award 286 Clone resets WaitState config

Post by mbrown3345 » Wed 31 Jan, 2018 7:31 pm

Encountered a strange behavior - not sure if by design. Whenever I set my Award 286 clone/EGA to 1 WaitState in the config it resets to 0 WaitState at runtime. The config file still has 1 W/S. End up having to go and manually change W/S back to 1 to achieve accurate 286 emulation.

Sorry for late reply.
I've just known this issue has been posted. Award 286 clone's BIOS set waitstates to 0 during POST. SCAT chipset can control waitstates through chipset-specific register.
