So I am trying to run Moonblaster in BlueMSX. I have the disk image mounted and when I try run"[a:]moonblaster-1.4" or run"[1:]moonblaster-1.4" or any such MSX-BASIC commands, I get the error "bad filename," and if I try run"moonblaster-1.4" I get "disk I/O error." How do I remedy this problem? This is also my first time working with MSX.

Actually, it should boot itself when you start up or reset the MSX (-emulator) with the disk inserted. Have you tried that?

Apart from that, the correct command to specify drive A would be
RUN "A:FILENAME"
(that's why it says bad filename), but that shouldn't be needed to start this program. I don't think it can be run from MSX-BASIC anyway.

Also note that you need to emulate an MSX2 machine at least. It won't work on MSX1.

Before I forget - welcome to MSX and to MRC. Smile

If you got a DSK of the original Moonblaster, it should boot itself when starting the emulator with the DSK inserted. If you insert the DSK later, when the MSX is in Disk Basic, poke&hf346,1: _system is the way to boot it.
If you type files (+return) in basic with the DSK inserted and you see a bunch of files pop up, run the file which ends on .ldr. In that case you could add an autoexec.bas to the DSK to run that ldr file.

Step 1: Get moonblaster-1.4.zip from http://www.msx.org/downloads/music/trackers/moonblaster-14
Step 2: Extract the contents of moonblaster-1.4.zip
Step 3: Set moonblaster-1.4.dsk as diskimage in your favourite MSX-AUDIO and/or MSX-MUSIC supporting emulator.
Step 4: Make sure your favourite MSX-AUDIO and/or MSX-MUSIC extensions are loaded in your emulator.
Step 5: Run your emulator with your favourite MSX2 or higher machine selected.
Step 6: Watch how it automatically boots into Moonblaster
Step 7: Make Music
Step 8: Share with the community
Step 9: ???
Step 10: Profit!

Ah, it's the moonblaster from the DL DB...
That explains the way too long file name in Sailbot216's first post... Wink

BlueMSX is emulating MSX2, when I insert the dsk image, the MSX starts running but brings me to a command line. Does anyone know if BlueMSX supports MSX-AUDIO/MSX-MUSIC?

It does...
Does the command line look like this?
A>
or:
Disk Basic version 1.x
Ok

Corrected my command line error, did: RUN "A:moonblaster-1.4" and I got a disk I/O error.

an MSX file can never be what you RUNed...
Did you extract the ZIP file to get a DSK file or a bunch of loose files?
