Anybody can edit wiki pages.

For the coherency of the wiki, the keyboard pinouts can't be added to the pages about a specific model. I suggest to create one of several pages that will be part of this category: https://www.msx.org/wiki/MSX_Connectors

For VHD Basic, I think it would be better to have more infos, because the ROM in the Victor IF-C9D is almost empty. Probably the IF-C9C would be more interesting. Anyway, if you want to add some infos without details (that are missing atm), it can be done on this page: https://www.msx.org/wiki/Victor_BASIC - I prefer to use the term "Victor BASIC", by analogy with the P-BASIC of Pioneer.

So link cannot be added to msx computer page, even that wuold be logical place when user first checks that page and not separate connector page?

You can add a link to the page(s) you will create. It seems me so obvious that I don't have mentioned it.

"Note: The extra instructions linked to a built-in software (CALL CMT, CALL MON, CALL TABOFF, CALL TABON) are not part of the Hitachi BASIC instructions."

Besides, CALL MON is not specific to MB-H2 and is not related to CALL CMT !

These are BASIC instructions included in the Hitachi MB-H2. So these are BASIC Hitachi BASIC instructions.

So why did you put it in the firmware description of the MB-H2?

Ok

1st: I follow the same logic as for other instructions that launch a built-in software. A real extension makes something else than that!

2nd: See MB-H1 and MB-H21 for example!

1st: It's better that way because it highlights the instructions that conflict with the others. (eg. CALL MON MB-H2 with CALL MON MSXAid Basic)

You're right on this point, but I will make some little adjustments then.

IMHO the copyright notice from Giuseve at the bottom of the wiki article about emulating MFR+ on openMSX has no place in a community-driven wiki...

Agreed, I suggest you just remove it Smile It's a wIki anyway!

Note that the method described there can certainly be simplified. E.g. you can also put the files on a normal disk image and copy from that. Or on a FAT12 IDE image, and import them on there with the built in diskmanipulator.

And, as the intro already said, you can use the pre-programmed flash ROM contents to avoid having to flash the kernel and stuff altogether.
If you still want to flash, no need to put it in a BAT file of course. You can just type in these commands in MSX-DOS, once you have that booting off the IDE device.
Using the original name for the SD-card image file, you also don't have to edit the XML file of the extension.

The shortcut can also be avoided, by just using the appropriate functions from the menu (or typing these commands in the console).

But whatever gets people going Smile
