Doesn't OpenMSX have "savestates"?
A feature in BlueMSX which I use extensively. Who needs crummy cassette saves anyway? LOL!

Thanks but the problem i have is that i have no idea where i would imput these commands... there are so many manuals that use these commands but when i downlaoded openmsx i havent seen where i can write them in... do you know any programs that i can use to command openmsx or how to imput commands in openmsx??

In the console, try Cmd+L (see the manual).

About saving in Metal Gear, it's in the openMSX FAQ.

About save states: wait for next release :) (As Vampier said...)

wheeeeehoooooo!
For some reason I'm very very enthusiastic about OpenMSX. I've tried it several times but somehow always come back to BlueMSX. . .
I'm anxious to see the next release (with savestates which IS a big thing for me)

thanx manuel

ro, try out the beta exe and give us feedback! It won't hurt you. ANd it will help us a lot to find bugs *before* the release.

balang: use the 'save link as' functionality of your browser... It really is a .dmg Smile

balang: what did you try exactly? The .dmg?

to quick-save a state, type in the console: savestate
Type "loadstate" to load it again.

You can also give an extra parameter: a name.

ro: thanks! Having (more) testers helps a lot.

So if i press ALT-F8 while playing it will do a quicksave? (even on mac?)
Also i have no idea where people keep saying to type into console, i have no option anywhere to type anything in.... theres all these commands that i would have no idea where to type in...

thanks alot

Ben
