The GR8NET capabilities are really amazing with the new update to see the Telnet BBS in nice colors !!

There are still enough BBS present (some are no longer operational) :

Requesting review of this KB0018 article called "GR8blaster device for MSX".

Just finished designing and making the device and software for it. It took about 3 days to make it from the start to completion.

Formally it can be used to active-serial flash any Altera EPCS device in any design, but at this stage I target GR8NET EPCS16 device only.

Yes, 5V pin of joystick connector is not connected anywhere. Chip is powered from GR8NET so that its output levels within specifications for FPGA/EPCS16 chips.

Many USB Blaster clones are unreliable and this piece of DIY hardware can save the day. Great work as usual Eugeny!

I uploaded new regular FPGA firmware, and new flash chip firmware. FPGA is having two fixes - one for MSX-Audio, and one for SCC/SCC+ implementation. Flash chip has some minor changes, for example now you can see SCC/+ mode GR8NET currently running in using _NETSTAT. New manual was also uploaded - change log is at the end of the manual.
