I implemented a workaround for the 1chipMSX / Zemmix Neo, you can specify the /o command line option and it will automatically switch to 60 Hz 212 lines mode for you, which avoids the timing problem. If it detects an OCM (the newer KdL firmwares only) it will also print a warning message if the /o option was not passed, as a reminder.

How do you detect the OCM?

In the KdL firmwares, it provides switched I/O ports to perform all kinds of settings, so detection is easy; write D4H to 40H, then read it back and see if you get the inverse (2BH). (I don’t think this function was there on the original 1chipMSX firmware.)

VGMPlay for MSX, Dodonpachi Daioujou (OPL4)

Conversion from the original’s MOD files by ctr. Though it doesn’t work on a real OPL4 for some yet-to-investigate reason (probably instrument switch timing).

I would like to try Dodonpachi on a MSX with DalSori and latest compiled VGMplay, I've found crt's XM and MOD versions of Dodonpachi, but I didn't find VGM version. Where is it? is it a tool converted version?

ctr is testing a tool which converts XM/MOD into a VGM file which can then play with grauw's vgm player on a Moonsound or compatible cart. But ctr is still fixing some issues in it.

Whenever this tool will be available I'll have long playing hours with my Panasonic Fs-A1FX MSX2+ with DalSoRi!

Any chance you can point me to where i can download this tool?

@grauw you said conversion so it doesnt work out of the box? How did you get xm files to work in vgmplay?
