I agree VHDL allows some transportability from one FPGA to a new one.
I believe one has to reset computer after fpga update , even from msxdos on CF.
Anyway doing re-configuration on the fly is very challenging.
There many challenges like : basic interpreter that takes advantage of all mapper memory in native mode,
top features like advram , true multicolor sprites , good high resolution screen mode, increase speed of ram exchanges , processor frequency , flat memory mode , 16 bit processing.

What do you mean by ''native mode''?

One important thing would be to replace some parts of the CALSLT routine by emulated hardware. This would increase the speed whenever slot exchanges are involved. But the BIOS routine must be rewritten, resulting in some additional free bytes for implementing new features.

MSX3 is a nice name but it got to deserve that name........ maybe a half msx 2+ will be possible so to deserve the name MSX3 it has to be better than a turbor...... thats why i did not mention msx3 in my nominations..... X5: means fifth generation MSX.............. its the 5th generation of msx produced....... it would be a great idea if they made a better 1chMSX like equal to TR if that was the case MSXa would have 20.000 in pre order now thats the REAL problem about the 1chmsx.....

Yes, I agree!

to deserve the name MSX3 it has to be better than a turbor...... thats why i did not mention msx3 in my nominations.....
That's also the reason why I didn't mention it! But it has to be much better!

it would be a great idea if they made a better 1chMSX like equal to TR if that was the case MSXa would have 20.000 in pre order now thats the REAL problem about the 1chmsx.....
It's up to us to make the OCM a better product, eh!

Well, the design of those Zemmix consoles rock. I wouldn't mind seeing such a design for the OCM.

name: ZEMSX
reason:the 1 chip is going to look like a console (a tribute to the zemmix msx console)
