Hi,

Someone could please provide me scans (or links) of the following documentation? Preferably in english, but I don't mind if it's the japanese version. (I'll use the fish). I've googled around and didn't found any of them.

  • * MSX-Audio tech book (about it's BIOS calls, not the Y8950 chip)
    * MSX Turbo-R Technical Handbook
    * MSX2+ tech book

It would help a lot on my new projects, specially when dealing with the MSX-Audio BIOS.

Thanks in advance,
FRS

@ sd_snatcher:
Did you find something about MSX Turbo R Technical Handbook?
I'm also very interested...
Thanks

Turbo-R service manual (technical description / schematics) can be downloaded from Hans Otten's site, look here:

msx.retro8bits.com/msxturbor.html

If you can do with it, I suggest you grab the b&w version to not kill his bandwidth... how you plan to use the fish on scanned Japanese pages is a mystery to me :-?
I've seen some MSX2+ tech book once (some schematics included, mapper/JIS or something), but don't think I've ever seen those in downloadable format - hope I'm wrong on that one.

I would like to add one more to this list: V9948 application manual.
V9948? Care to explain in what piece of electronics such an IC might be found?

If anyone needs help in using the fish on these scanned manuals, I have a brilliant OCR program that is extremely accurate and can work with PDFs. Message me at conrad (dot) russo (at) gmail (dot) com if you want it.

Message me at conrad (dot) russo (at) gmail (dot) com if you want it.This OCR program had better be freeware, public domain or open source. I take it you do know that advertizing warez, be it for MSX, PC or otherwise, is not accepted in this forum.

Yes. Please download the PDFs from the site of Hans, OCR them and then provide the plain text versions back to the community. We really appreciate your offer to convert these PDFs into plain text using your brilliant OCR program.

Cheers,
