Ok, tested version 1.2.
Indeed it is working much better in MSX Turbo R.
It is smoother and the sound is nicer ...
This demo work very well in the 512 KB MEGARAM.
The cooler is that it is actually possible to play this application on a real MSX machine!

Maybe, I still have some doubts ...

Yeah, I actually rewrote most of the demo and created a better engine for both the music and the video. I also think I fixed the problems with too quick VDP updates that the earlier versions had.

Btw Yukio, what are your dobuts?

hey DVIK
could i have a peek at it on my vg8235.
the .ROM file i cannot play...
Although I heard of programs like ROMLOAD.
they never worked for me because of the 128kb memory I have.
so it seems not to work for waves either
any alternatives ?

I use an ESE cart which is pretty much a cartridge with 512kB SRAM (I think). This one works very well. I also think the Padial carts are very good, they are flash based, think its an AMD flash (or similar).
I have a megaram too, but its only 256kB so it doesn't work with waves. It works with other roms though so I imagine it would work with waves as well. Waves runs fine on a vg8235 though.

Waves runs fine on a vg8235 though. Yes I understand this.
But I cant get it to run as a .ROM format.
Only as a .DSK format
I dont have any fancy carts with sram, nor do i have a flash rom.
Just a plain simple 128kb msx Tongue

The whole demo needs to be quickly accessable from the Z80 so disks is not an option. It would be possible to develop a disk version that loaded the entire demo into RAM but then it would require an MSX with 512MB RAM. But since its an MSX1 demo I think the rom medium is better since MSX1 machines have at most 64kB RAM.

Aha, I understand.
Size makes the difference.
Oh, well, it's just another reason to catch up.
Hopefully in the future Ill have a more powerfull msx.

Thanx anyway. Smile

My version (0.48) of NLMSX refuses to "eat" it, no matter how hard I try.

It goes bananas in any set-up.

I will try it shortly on another computer.
