I suggest you release a patch for the ROM image in stead of the full one.

I wonder if you have corrected the PRINT USING too.

It uses a different character for one of the format methods...

Originally I was thinking about making a patch, mainly for legal reasons.
But since I copied the code from a rom that is just as legal as the turbo r rom, I figured it didn't matter anymore.

I just looked at the print using. &, $$ and **$ don't work correctly yet.
Lets see if I can fix that.

where can I find this SUPER-X program? does it run on blueMSX?


If you want to localize your BIOS, you can probably disassemble some other ROM and rip ready made code, but note, that all the keys may not be physically in same place. To take a look at your BIOS, I recommend you to use SUPER-X. It is simply the best MSX program for this purpose. ~NYYRIKKI

Philip - releasing a patch instead of a ROM file makes your part of the deal as legal as can be. Creating a patch out of it isn't that hard, so I'd continue spreading patches instead of ROM images from now on if I were you. Just in case Wink

All right, a patch it shall be then.
Any patch making software suggestions ?

The print using functions are all done.
I am looking at patch software, but it seems there isn't any decent patching software that can patch binary files in at least linux and windows. I guess I am going have to write something myself.

Funet has a few programs if I'm not mistaken... Just look around on there... If you really can't find anything suitable I could make a small patch program for the MSX I guess... Look on funet first if you'd please... if not I could make up something... I would need both sets of ROM images though...

If you are referring to the translate tools, these seem to work on disk(images) only. Tried to make a patch for the alternative version of Usas with it back then but that didn't work out very well. In stead I used some binary compare to find out which bytes differ, make a 'string' of (almost) directly concatenated offsets, put it in a file with some destination data and write a patch tool writing the patch data to the file. It isn't that hard once you got the hang of the system.
