I always want to know how good is Novaxis SCSI accessing to CF or CDROM so is the time for a nice setup what I remember it need MSDOS cartridge installed first. so my MSX computer candidates are:

Victor HC-95 (HYbrid MSX2 with Z80/HD64180 CPU and Turbo mode at 6mhz)
Panasonic A1WX (with Turbo option at 5.13mhz)
Philips NMS-8280 (with Turbo Switch at 7mhz)
Panasonic Turbo R A1ST(with R800 Turbo mode at 7.15mhz)

I have the Novaxis SCSI with Bios Ver 1.51 successfully installed on my NMS-8280 with 9958 VDP and 1024KB Internal RAM upgraded also DOS1/DOS2.20 via SWITCH at FRONT
also the SCSI CF Interface was set to ID #1 and the HOST ID from MSX side was set to #7 via the NOVAXIS SETUP (DEL Key at boot)
after that I had mounted a Novaxis HDD TOOLs (.DSK) and executed NFDISK.COM where I had created 1 only 16MB partition.

I'm just using the basic tools from 1995 I think Tomorrow I'll try Louthrax Patches and will see.

I also had CD-ROM working with my Novaxis SCSI setup. All using the old tools.

Must I was not expecting much "customers" for this patch (how many people still using Novaxis interfaces with a real CD-ROM drive in the world) Smile ?

I still have a working setup with HDD & CD in the closet, but indeed... It is kind of hard to justify the space it takes from table in this modern world with SD-cards... I think only possible way it could end up back to use would be if I would for some reason decide to build MSX in to old PC tower some day... Sounds kind of unlikely.

Then I'd still rather put this in a 5,25" bay :)

After testing 4 different SCSI CDROM's Finally I found one very promising now I need to find a CADDY for it.
Hey Louthrax could please make a ISO Image so i can burn and test my Novaxis/CDROM setup?

I have Downloaded Knightmare Gold R3 from Daniel Caetano Homepage but no luck playing CD AUDIO MUSIC through the main game I think the new code is just checking for Sunrise Interface only.

@Manuel: What MSX Emulator can Emulate SCSI CDROM from GOUDA/SUNRISE/MEGASCSI Interfaces?
@NYYRIKKI: have you ever tried to play CD AUDIO through Novaxis Interface?

P.S: the SCSI CDROM used is : NAKAMICHI MJ-5.16 (16X 5 Disc CDROM Mini Changer) Manufactured Year: 1999
and MSXCDEX used was version #0.41 (fixed by Louthrax)

I vaguely remember playing CD AUDIO on my Novaxis... wasn't there a tool from Erik Maas?

openMSX emulates SCSI CD-ROM, but not audio CD. It was never really used much, so it should still be considered experimental.

Philips NMS-8280 + NOVAXIS + CDAUDIO

P.S: Too much time wasted in the Emulation world without take advantage of having other AUDIO PROCESSOR for BGM.

:evil:

Interesting Document to READ

I did something similar using the DEVELO BOX for PC-ENGINE --> Video
