I really missed MSX2 demos, thank you! Not sure if the use of PSG is part of the Traktor's DNA, I mean exploit the machine as it is, but I'm sure the use of the other MSX soundchips would increase the quality of your productions a lot, after all they are part of the MSX standard as well...

Sorry about the delayed response. The roadtrip from Saarbrücken to Sweden takes a while.

Tested it on my NMS8250 and Esaus NMS 8280 during development. Got to test it on another NMS 8280 at Revision.
The things that differ from the hardware we tested on compared to the video capture in this thread is that the characters in the greetings part are offset by one pixel. The VDP source appears to be off if I were to guess.
I don't know what happened with the palette in the second torus part but it is supposed to be the same as in the first torus part.

BlueMSX doesn't have those issues, instead it messes up the transition between the rotating bars and the twister.

A very nice demo indeed! I ran it on my NMS8250 - two times in a row. The music is especially impressive, IMO!

p.s. It took me a while to figure out it does not run on DOS2 (or Nextor), except with the help of map.com, it seems to run without issues!

Just few small tips: All DOS1 software that uses memory mapper (Practically = over 64KB of RAM) needs "map.com" to be executed first. It is just unfortunate that all computers don't support that. Mine does and that is why I have "map.com" in AUTOEXEC.BAT

In older versions of DOS2 you might also need to write SET EXPERT=ON if you want to run DOS1 software directly from floppy without copying it first to DOS2 formatted disk.

Tickets made for that here: if you have anything to add to them, please do Smile (Especially hints on what is going wrong in the emulation...)

@bore: there was a NMS 8280 at Revision? Somehow I missed that... (:

As for 1015 (wrong torus palette): so far I could only reproduce that on the 8250 (and 8255, which is identical except for th extra physical drive) config in openMSX. It works fine in all other configs I tried: 8245, turboR, Pansonic FS-A1F, etc. etc. It seems to depend on the used disk ROM image. If I change it to the diskROM of the 8245, it suddenly doesn't occur anymore.

So, I'm afraid I'm now interested in the diskROMs used in those 8280's bore Smile Could you guys dump them? Using a simple dumper like getrom.bin should be fine.
