Hello, pitpan ! Thanks for your help ! Smile

WAV support and extended debugger are on the 'to do' list (but it's not for version 2.2), you can of course send us ideas, suggestions and even code, we will certainly make a good use of it !

It's interesting to notice that loads of people seem to consider themselves experts on Bazix, MRC and what's good for the community.
It may sound a bit harsh, but the problem is that those very same people (barring a few maybe) do not contribute that much to MSX besides some extremely superfluous chit-chat-rubbish. What makes them think they know what they're talking about anyway? Hence they should refrain from acting like know-alls. Ask yourself who's arrogant here.

This continuous moaning may well end the community as we know it as it wouldn't surprise me if these endless rants are quite demotivating for those who DO put a lot of effort in [for instance] MRC.

Don't cry immediately FFS. Be patient and have at least a bit of faith. But hey, most people enjoy internet fights more than MSX so probably it won't end. Be proud.

I see this whole soap a little different:

example:

You made stuff for MSX a few years ago, used some logos and didn't point at the trademarks. The Bazix guys love it, cuz it's a contribution to the scene.
Now they are in some busines with people from the other side of the world.
You make a sequel of the thing they reviewed very positively. You still got your logos on the labels and on some screens.
Now the same people warn you for legal actions.

Don't you feel pissed in the face then?

By the way, I have been testing today the newest version of BlueMSX and it rocks! Intuitive, easy to use and accurate! Of course, I miss the WAV support and the debugger.

Thanks for the compliments Smile The wav support and the debugger is on our todo list. For the next release we're focusing a bit more on the user interface which will get a big boost. But we've also done several bug fixes, added a keyboard editor, and hopefully we'll get printer and uart support as well.

The debugger is something I've been thinking about and it is getting closer...

If you are interested in the WAV support, I can provide some ideas or even actual code.

I sure am. WAV support has been on my todo list for a year but it has been pushed into the future by other features.

About the debugger, I have a pile of suggestions to make, but something like the NO$MSX debugger will make BlueMSX THE TOOL for MSX development.

As always, we're definately open for ideas. I hope to get some of the debug framework in place after the next release. The plan is to do a NO$MSX style debugger and hopefully it can be reused for openMSX as well. Doing a full GUI debugger may take a little while though so the first debugger will probably be a command line version.

Oh! The GunStick/Light Phaser document is on its way! I will be ready very soon. Thank you very much for your efforts, mars2000 & BlueMSX team.

Sounds great Smile I looked a little bit on the AdamEm and it doesn't look that hard to implement so I'm looking forward to see the docs.

Just go to bed. There is another day tomorrow Wink
Last thing I have heard is that Snount actually has a private/social life as well, and that he doesn't spend 24/7 on MSX/MRC/Bazix, etc...
I know it's just a rumour, but still Wink

Don't you feel pissed in the face then?
The policies about using the MSX-logo's are quite clear. If you get a warning you have to mention trademarks, it's no problem mentioning them after all, right? (or just remove them all)

The issue's not trademarks here, but copyrighted material that is being offered for download. Mentioning trademarks here doesn't make anything more legal here. Warning -> take software offline. The author knew very well what he was doing is illegal, so if he gets pissed because Bazix is going after him it's his own fault.

Frankly, I can see why they targeted MSX BOX. It's an easy target! And one that is used by non-sceners a lot (only hardcore msx ppl know funet). MSX BOX is hosted in the Netherlands (on a university server even!) so it's quite easy to take down.

On the other hand, I don't know how Bazix is planning to attract non-sceners. I guess they mostly get to know about MSX because of Metal Gear, but that alone is not enough (plus I don't think Konami would sell Metal Gear via Bazix/Project Egg)... These actions might turn out to be a double-edged sword.

Rikusu and Snout are both in Bazix ..... so, Rikusu's answer (in this context) = Snout's answer = Bazix answer

Btw, don't ask me which is hiding under the nickname Bazix, I really don't know Tongue
