I want to add a new machine. On the bluemsx site there is the Generic MSX2+ european machine.
Can somebody pls help me to write the xml file for that machine?
I don't fully understand the blueMSX format. But what kind of specs do you want in the machine?
(What about using Boosted MSX2 EN? It does have the MSX2+ VDP.... you could try to change its BIOS if you insist on MSX-BASIC version 3.)
Is it possible to make a Boosted MSX2+ European with startscreen 0 ? I used in BlueMSX the roms: MSX2PE.ROM, MSX2PEXTE.ROM,MSX2MUSE.ROM,KANJI.ROM,MOONSOUND.ROM, MSXKANJI.ROM, PANASONICDISK.ROM, XBASIC2.ROM.
I did try but i do not understand what i am doing wrong.
In Basic type:
screen 0: width 80: set screen
and you're done.
Indeed, this is not related to the machine config or the ROMs. The Boosetd MSX2 EN is European. The names of the ROMs don't tell me much.
What do you want to achieve with the machine?
I just wanted to know if the same config was possible with the same roms.I also thought that the kanji roms etc were changed etc, and a few other changes.
so it was more a question if it was possible and how to do it.
Yes, the same config is possible, with the same ROMs.
How to do it:
1) understand the format of the blueMSX config
2) configure the same machine in the openMSX config format
For 2, there is some help here: http://openmsx.org/manual/setup.html#hardwareedit
