SetPatch runs as the first command in the Startup-Sequence when Amiga boots up. It applies patches to the code in ROM to fix bugs and also enable features if necessary. For example, I seem to remember that the advanced fetch modes for Chip RAM DMA under AGA only get enabled by SetPatch and/or IPrefs.

Is there a list detailing exactly which patches each version of SetPatch applies and under which conditions?

    Could be a very long list given the number of OS revisions and number of SetPatch revisions. Perhaps you could narrow the question to one or two specific Kickstart versions.

    When you omit the QUIET option, it will list what it has installed.
