Hi all,

I've re-started working on 1Chip MSX support for SofaRun / SofaROM this week end. The problem is I do not own a 1Chip MSX. I've received nice support from Sebbeug, but I do not want to take too much of his time, and I also need to tweak / check lots of small things here on the real beast.

So, I'm looking for a 1Chip MSX for my tests and development, but I do not want to invest in that (I just prefer the real MSX machines plugged on old CRTs!).

So if by any chance a good soul here has 1Chip MSX to lend me for 1 month, that would make me a happy penguin. I'm planning to use KDL firmware features for SofaROM, so this OCM has to be compatible with that (not sure which models do work or not). I will pay for shipment of course.

Send me a PM if you think you can help.

Thanks,

Louthrax

I'll find a box and send mine to you asap.
As you can see, its diskdrive is utterly useless anyway.

Hi Meits,

Great, thanks a lot :)) So that's the genuine OCM, and it can also be flashed with the KDL firmware, right ? (I'm kind of a noob about 1Chip stuff...).

I already lost by accident micro SD cards in differents parts of my MSX machines (under the keyboard, inside the cartridge slot, or even inside the cartridge itself, causing major PITA to retrieve it !), but that never happened to me with floppies Smile

So that's wrong: I remember loosing a floppy inside a VG8235 after having changed the single-sided drive to a thiner double-sided one (with no closure above it !).

Thinking about that, a useful option for SofaRun / OCM will be to add game-specific settings (like the CPU mode setting for turboR). I'm not talking about settings that you can set in AUTOEXEC.BAT and that you do not want to change after, but per-game settings (like the R800 mode for turboR : it's interesting for some games, but not for others).

Let me know if you have requests or ideas, things are not clear yet in my OCM-noob mind.

I got some friends with USB blaster cables, so you're free to brick the thing \o/
