Hello guys, sorry for digging up an old (interesting) thread but I have a simple question that I cannot seem to find an answer for. I have a Mega STe running TOS 2.06 and I can force 16MHz by using a utility like Bootsie and this works great for me because I leave the one floppy in the drive you see. All my software is on ultrasatan so I've not much need for floppies. Anyhow, I know about XControl and that also works well...
But - is there a PRG/TOS that I can run at anytime to toggle between 8 + 16Mhz? It seems like such a simple request yet I can find nothing online that can do this? I could place the icon on the desktop too, which would be ultra cool for me!
So, a PRG to flip between cpu speeds. Anything out there?
TIA, Steve :-)

Of course there is such PRG - and it is very short, because all to do is set 1 HW register to proper value. I will post it tomorrow.
There are actually 4 possible settings: beside CPU clock there is cache on or off setting. But that has not much sense to run without cache at 16, so normally you set 8 MHz and cache off or 16 MHz and cache on.
Cache is 16 too - sadly not 16 MB, just 16 KB

Brilliant. I cannot thank you enough (again!!)

Here is it: MSTECPCL.ZIP 408bytes 39 downloads
May use on floppies, from AUTO folder too - then rename to *.PRG
Instead fllpping PRG I did 2 separated - for 8 and 16 MHz set - that may be better for cases not sure on what runs at moment, and for AUTO run.

Thank you SO MUCH. Downloading and about to test.
Really appreciate your efforts - thank you

Thanks, that's handy to keep around!

The manufactures of modern consumer devices seem to have forgotten this principle.
