Is there a kind person who could offer a quick test on real hardware?

I'm making a game (megarom) called Lilly's Saga for MSX2 and I'm in need of testing a **worst case scenario (60Hz)** on various physical MSX2s/MSX2+s.

It's been tested in openmsx with all kinds of configurations and runs fine. In addition, it has been tested on Panasonic A1-WSX and an SVI-738 upgraded to MSX2.

The size of the testrom is 1.2MB. So, to the best of my knowledge, you would need to be in possession of a MegaFlashROM SCC+ SD, Carnevore 2 or the like, to be able to test this. It has an ascii-16 mapper.

I'm particularly interested in a Sanyo Wavy or any MSX with a slow CPU-VDP communication (any non-"C"-model found here). In other words, any of these:

* Sakhr_AX-370
* Panasonic_FS-A1FM
* Panasonic_FS-A1FX
* Panasonic_FS-A1WX
* Sanyo_PHC-55FD2
* Sanyo_PHC-35J
* Sanyo_PHC-70FD2
* Sanyo_PHC-70FD

So, at least one of the above to verify visuals and ideally as many other MSX2s as possible to verify other stuff (like mem-slot handling).

At the moment I'm a bit wary of spreading the testrom widely to **many** people, so ideally there is one kind person who has the ability and willingness to test on several machines.

Thanks guys. Quick replies there! We could just go ahead and test with Pencioner as he was first, and see if his gear will suffice. I really appreciate your willingness to help out Smile
