      Hello,

      1.
      The beta version of the new pci.library (ver. 9.6beta) has been uploaded in the
      DOWNLOADS | Mediator section at http://elbox.com/downloads_mediator.html

      In Mediator 1200TX working in the MMU mode new pci.library allows to add a part of the
      Radeon or Voodoo gfx card memory to the Amiga 1200 system memory (like in the A3000
      and A4000 computers). You can even use 250 MB of the Radeon memory as Amiga 1200
      memory!

      Use MedConfig (ver.1.9) to allocate the required gfx card memory to the Amiga system.

      We will be gratful for feedback on how this new feature works in your specific system
      (turbo card, Radeon or Voodoo card model, etc.).

      2.
      If you plan to purchase any Elbox products in near future, do it now, as in
      the upcoming days prices of most of them (Mediators, FastATA, memory
      expansions,...) will be significantly raised.

      This will be due to much higher costs of the components used in the production.
      Most of necessary connectors and 5V CPLD chips are now very difficult to acquire
      and much more expensive than ever before.

        Installed all required files here and ran Medconfig.

        It changed a few settings that v1.6 had set, such as Voodoomem from 15, back
        to 31. One or 2 others changed as well.

        However, the end result is that I have for FastMem than I did before! Hard
        to say exactly how much, but around 32mb ;)

        Attached MedReport.txt file.

        Thanks, Elbox.

        Bye for now,

          Working fine so far and it's amazing to see my miggy with over 400mb Ram ;)
          (That's nearly half a gigabyte!!!)
