It's quite alright. I had to re-read the initial post a few times
before I saw the NEMAB_HI reference.

My 040 is a 32 or 33MHz one, socketed. I know I unplugged the LC040 I
had at first and replaced it with an RC040, when Dave at Titan Designs
was generous enough to let me swap the chip with one from a newer AB
he had. Doug actually fitted my Nemesis so it is probably done to his
immaculate standard. Though because of the broken 030 pin he was
probably just relieved to get it running at all.

I hate to admit this but I think the accidental running of NEM_HI on
a couple of occasions may have damaged the chip so it dies after a few
minutes running of NEM_LO.

Most of the time I leave Nemesis off but regularly I switch to
NEMAB_HI to allow me to use the 640x480 hi-colour mode.
