Hi
How can I run SVI-3x8 with 80 columns support in openMSX?

Indeed, the 80 columns card is a special video chip which isn't emulated in openMSX.

Sorry I didn't understand whether you are planing to emulate it or you won't?!

We don't make plans usually. But anyone can help to implement it, if course. For example based on the blueMSX implementation.

I just read better and discovered that you wrote 3x8, not 7x8. I don't know if the SVI-727 MSX 80 column card is similar to the SVI-806 for the 3x8, but I would expect it's almost identical.

Yes, I would expect it is just matter of defining different I/O ports... Adding support to one will bring both of them to life.
