I guess you don't like openMSX's user interface, but I'm offering help if you still want to try.

In openMSX you just say in the console:

set disablesprites on

(see http://openmsx.sourceforge.net/manual/commands.html#disablesprites )
before starting your spriteless recording.

Recording reference: http://openmsx.sourceforge.net/manual/user.html#recording

Or ask me any questions (preferably on our IRC channel).

openMSX is FANTASTIC!
as a programmer i apreciate its flexibility: the most i like is:
- ability to switch z80 speed on the fly!
- ability to interact with the emulator via tcl ( even if i do not like it )
- logging of vdp commands
- the powerfull debugger ( @manuel: i've used only the command line interface but i noticed there is a gui client. is this available as a windows app ? )
- the "disk toolset"!

when wouter ( i think ) showed me a simple tcl script to have an idea of vdp processor usage i've understood the real flexibility of the sw.

PingPong: yes, try this one: BiFi built it himself out of the SVN sourcecode: http://openmsx.sourceforge.net/temp/openmsx-debugger-win32-bin-snapshot.zip

Let me know if it works, please.

Thanks for the tips Manuel!
I tried, but couldn't get the artifacts I see on BlueMSX.

Then one of the emulators have a bug Smile Hard to check on real hardware, though.

On second checking, this set disablesprites on command simply doesn't do anything on my OpenMSX. I'll try to update to the latest version.

sure it works, fine. ;-)
a thing that would make it almost perfect should be, the ability to add "debuggable"s directly in the righe window panel. i've not found how to do.....

PingPong: what exactly do you mean with that?

Hrothgar, you need an openMSX newer than 23 June 2010 Smile I.e. 0.8.1 at least.

when opening the debugger, you view on the left part the asm code. on the right there are: memory, cpu regs, etc.
if i want to add vdp register, surely i can view with a menu option "add debuggable", however those data is displayed in a separate window, that overlap the main window. Would be nice to have the ability to 'embed' the latter window ( vdp register ) INTO the right pane of the main window, without being a separate overlapped window. So all debuggable could be together in the right pane. the same for other debuggables.

Pratically i'm asking about a feature that can embed all 'secondary' debuggable into the main window, without a separate, overlapped one, window for each debuggable.
