Hello DarkSchneider,
You can save the mapper mode.
from the manual:
"The difference between NETTGTMAP and NETSETMAP is that former will cause adapter to
restart machine in target mapper mode when machine cold-starts. The values set by
TGTMAP is preserved by NETSAVE command to become in effect on next cold boot. :"
so using NETTGTMAP is the way to use mapper mode to be set after machine is turned off and the next day you want to be ready to go when turning it back on. Smile
I have this option in GR8CFG and it is part of the _NETCFG (if i recall)

I agree, this is really one of the best expansions for your MSX.

Good news, new GR8NET firmware (update.bin, 20180912) is published. It has video player improvement and changes, now it can properly play videos on TMS VDPs (MSX1) as well as on machines with extra wait states! (but it requires video file made with TMS palette). Check video directory on the server. I also have issue reported by JohnFante fixed (error loading RAM disk image). Manual is also updated and uploaded - you can see changes of it at its very end in revision history chapter.

Small update: I modified MOONBLAS.DSK file at http://www.gr8bit.ru/software/bootimg/ and now it runs GR8NET identification and initialization routine before player starts - it detects mono/stereo and configures mixer appropriately, and fakes MSX-Music ROM into RAM. Thus no more callnetsetmix and defusr's. It will configure your gr8net for you.

Let me remind you how to run the images: turn machine on, and press F2 and F4 and hold these keys. It will invoke the browser, and then you press first letter "m" to go to first file (link) named with letter "m". Then you press space key on the file, and it starts loading. After it finishes loading, image should start.

When running the player, do not forget, in addition to music file, to load sample kit with MBK extension. I prefer MBMUZAK2, but image also has SAM3 with slightly different ADPCM sounds.

I decided to go the following route: now you have gr8cloudserver application designed in .NET Core and runnable on Windows as well as Linux. Please see new version of uploaded manual (closer to its end, use ^F to search through it).

Karloch has build Docker container image, his post is here.

Bug reports and feedback are welcome.
