Btw: if you use "--conout 2" with VDI mode and TT-ram, you notice
that TOS3 gives "infinitely" long ST-ram checking bar at TOS boot.

When memtop is 32k aligned, TOS3 detects TT-RAM, so I commited
that fix.


maybe there's a misunderstanding, but as I wrote previuously, the problem is also present when there's no tt ram ; the bar will loop on st ram detection anyway and also since at least hatari 1.4.1, even with old uae cpu core, so this is unrelated to the new/old cpu.

I tested with your patch on memtop, and the problem is still there, st ram bar still loop forever :(

There's not much point in using VDI mode with smaller amounts of RAM.
VDI mode is used to get larger screen and that takes memory, with 512k
you don't enough memory left to run the applications.

That was just an example to point that it happen with any ST RAM config, not just 14 MB ; even if there's not enough ram for apps, it should at least pass the detection at boot.
