Hm, what that piece of code does, is putting the R800 into ROM mode. Aside from having some more RAM at your disposal, I fail to see why it wouldn't boot with keeping the "1" key pressed down on boot, thus forcing the turboR to boot in MSX2 compliance mode. Or would it?

On the other hand, it would mean that DP would perform a lot better. I recall horrid loading/menu times on a plain MSX2.

Edit: read the MILC article, and the magic is in the POKE. Who would have thought Tongue

let me ask a basic question - how to edit an Autoexit.bas - there´s nothing like that im my emulators´ folders... Question

well, i see now, it´s on the dsk image... yet, how to edit it? - the DP autostarts when i reset the system with the disk image in the (emulated) drive... Question

Aight, you should interrupt DP from starting by keeping [CTRL]+[STOP] pressed. Depending on your emulator, it's [CTRL]+[SOMEKEY]. On openMSX, [SOMEKEY] is [F8]. Then you can do a simple LIST and edit whatever you like. After that, type SAVE "AUTOEXEC.BAS" and reset your emulated MSX!

Or start the emulator without disk image and only after the MSX has booted, 'insert' the disk image...

hi. thanks again, unfortunetally, i cannot fathom how to edit the "autoexec.bat" file. using the ctrl+F8 trick in openMSX, i get int MSX DOS and have no idea how to edit a file, i can just get a list of them using rhe "dir" command.
when i insert the dsk image first after having started msx system in blueMSX, i get into basic, i can get the list of files using "files" command. i´d like to load & list the autoexec.bat, but load"autoexec.bat" returns "direct statement in file". i need an idiot´s guide to msx basic / msx dos...

Heh, AUTOEXEC.BAT is the MSX-DOS way of booting a disk. Aight, you're in DOS, and interrupted DP from booting by the [CTRL]+[F8] thing. Then do TYPE AUTOEXEC.BAT and tell me what you get there. Most likely, it says something along these lines:
- BASIC AUTOEXEC.BAS
- BASIC DP.BAS
- DP.COM

If the contents are comparable to the first or second one, type "BASIC" and when you're in BASIC, type LOAD "<thing>.BAS", where <thing> represents the name found in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file. Edit as desired and then SAVE "<thing>.BAS", reset your MSX.

If the contents are comparable to the third one, it's getting a bit more complicated. Whilst being in DOS, type the following:
COPY CON AUTOEXEC.BAT
BASIC STUFF.BAS
^Z <-- This actually means you have to type [CTRL]+[Z] to save AUTOEXEC.BAT

Next, go to BASIC, by typing BASIC. Type that listing you want to have run. The last line should be:
20 _SYSTEM("DP.COM")
Then, SAVE "STUFF.BAS". The _SYSTEM("DP.COM") will cause the program to go to DOS again, and boot DP.COM. Depending on your DOS version this either works or it doesn't. If it doesn't, you'll still be in DOS but instead the prompt A> is displayed. Just type DP.COM and you'll be fine.
