This is a small update upload I had "forgotten" to do, since quite a long
time :-))


Short Description of the functions:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

        * Installs a Reset-patch that pops up a menu if you press RMB during
          reset.

        * The reset-menu has multiple functions:

           ->memory 'protection' by allocmem,preventing the trashing that 'd
             occur while booting normally.So,now,you'll be able to scan this
             data without problem.
             You can COPY Chip->Fast (or 1/2 Chip->1/2 Chip etc..)
                 or 'PROTECT' (allocate) Chip,or Chip & Fast....

             With also 'intelligent' copy functions,trying to decrease as much
             as possible the buffersize (scans for 'full' datazones :)

           ->'Nofastmem' function,*REALLY* disconnects your fast memory.

           ->Cachehandling option,with SEPARATED caches control (INST,BURST..)


        * BOOT function,useful alternative utile if the pathcode gets trashed
          in memory.
          This boot even tries to reactivate the patch(!!) if still useable.


        * Nice GUI for configuration:

                ->prefs

                ->Savebuffer(s) function,and also a 'ClearMemChunks'

        * The buffer is recognized by ExoticRipper & Prowizard.They scan it,
          hunting for mods.You can of course scan 'by hand' this imagebuffer if
          you look for something else...or even make the tool for it (?! ;-)


        * Bonus Program:RACS (Run After ChipSaver), by Solo.
          Nice'n'useful tool:put it in your startup,it will detect if a buffer
          is present.If so,it directly runs your favourite ripper on boot!
          Isn't it just cool?
