One of my goals was to get everything that MegaReport can report implemented in openMSX Smile Is there an official latest version of it?

A while ago I made an attempt to make MegaReport v1.3 compile and build again. That is not fully completed yet. I managed to reconstruct how everything should build/link etc. It is not fully finished yet, but I am close. Once finished I can start looking into adding/fixing some stuff and maybe release it.

That is correct. The S1985 has extra SRAM, and is accessable via switched I/O. The feature is not used anywhere to my knowing.
By the way, the S1985 also featured a bidirectional printer interface, also not used anywhere.

Now that I managed to actually read the datasheet (I fixed the link as well) I noticed that: Yes! This seems to be even documented. Although I don't believe I will ever need this information, it is always nice to learn more. Smile

What about that function "VDP select signal output"? Any idea what that is?

guess: may be a chip select signal to enable the cpu to talk to vdp ? otherwise how can the vdp know that cpu want to talk with him because it is for example doing a out (0x98),a?

https://www.msx.org/wiki/MSX-AUDIO says that Panasonic FS-CA1 must be in slot 1 to get FM music in Labyrinth, but I also get music when the game is in slot 1 and the MSX-AUDIO cart is in slot 2...? Tested in openMSX on a FS-A1GT.

https://www.msx.org/wiki/MegaROM_Mappers#ASC16_.28ASCII.29 says that the pages 1 and 2 are mirrored in page 3 and 0 respectively... What is the source of that information?
Similarly for ASCII8.

As far as I know, there is no mirroring.

And what happens on a real machine? I'm curious.....

What for the 3 other ROM games???? Also to be checked on real machine.... Maybe Labyrinth is just an exception (or not???)

We had to discuss, It probably depends on the cartridges.

In openMSX there is no such mirroring implemented, and I think all ASCII16 and ASCII8 games work. Is there an example of a game which has the mirroring?

The exception is actually Xevious. It requires the MSX-AUDIO to be in a lower slot because it does not hook into H.STKE. The other games do, therefore the BIOS continues with all initialisation (including MSX-AUDIO BIOS and BDOS). I will test later on real HW but I expect the same result.
