I wonder if I can add those IPS patches to the MSX IPS Patch Archive.

Also the order that SET DATE assumes for input string should be changed (it is year-month-day in original japanese roms). That routine is somewhere in the 16K rom extension.

Ofcourse you can !

GET DATE is also wrong. Thanks for the info. I will look into this.

In the upcoming openMSX 0.5.1 you can this to your XML to use the patch whilst keeping the original ROM:

  <PanasonicRom id="Firmware ROM">
    <rom>
      <sha1>e779c338eb91a7dea3ff75f3fde76b8af22c4a3a</sha1>
      <sha1>5fa3aa79aeba2c0441f349e78e9a16d9d64422ea</sha1>
      <filename>roms/fs-a1gt_firmware.rom</filename>
      <patches>
        <ips>fs-a1gt_firmware.ips</ips>
      </patches>
    </rom>
  </PanasonicRom>

Now, that is a nice feature ;-)

I have heard, that there is also English translation of MSX-View, but I don't have it. I think, that it would be cool, if it would be included to this patch as well...

There is indeed. Though the translation is based on a somwhat other (probably earlier) version of MSX-View and was done on disk in stead of some ROM image... It might be more work to get that translation through.

Disk version is not a problem as MSX-View is on filesystem inside the ROM in GT.

Talking about this:
I have here a white box with the text:
"Engelse vertaling
MSX-VIEW
* application disk
* patch disk
inclusief Nederlandse handleiding

TURBOR-GT only"

the back side says:
"Copyright MGF 1995"

It contains two HD disks with a DP label. The first one is:
"MSX-View
Application disk v1.1
MSX-View utility disk
* Internal setup program
* DP Stamp converter
* Interactive manual
and more !!!"

The second one:
"MSX-View
Application disk v2.0
MSX-VIew PATCH DISK
100% Engels
Voor MSX Turbo R GT/ST
(c) 1993 MSX G.G. Friesland"

I guess that second one contains the patches to make MSX View ENglish. HOWEVER: this disk is empty!!! Sad(((((((

Does someone still have a copy of it, so that I can fix it?
Also, does someone still have the paper manual of this package?

Thanks.

Indeed, it would be cool to include msx-view english patch. I hope somebody can find it in their archive.
To get ahead at things, the romdisk is not entirely a standard filesystem. It seems empty sectors (like 4,5,6 and 8) are not stored in rom. So there must be some empty sector lookup table or something somewhere. If I can find that it would be a piece of cake to change (or even add/delete) files.

Anyway, lets hope somebody still has the translation.
