Well, what can I say...

I have been kicked out behind my Wii, as my wife & daughter wanted to play Penguin Adventure. Life's just not fair Smile But it's kinda fun to see them playing that old favourite. My wife also likes Puyo Puyo btw Smile. And I myself have been playing Zanac-Ex & Nemesis2 just now... Just great. And it all works so smoothly.

I do have a small wishlist Smile Smile

* Make it possible to change a disk
* Create a virtual keyboard, so you can enter text Smile

For the rest: Really great work. You have made me a happy man Smile

P.S.
Zanac-Ex is an MSX2 game, not MSX1 Wink Wink

tfh: push the (+) button on your wiimote.

there are some MSX2 games listed as MSX1 but I think that's done to have Games like Zanac and Zanax-Ex together.

Changing disk is possible. To do this add a hotkey mapping to gamelist.xml. To give you an example:

<CommandLine>/diskA SDSnatcher.zip /diskAzip SDSnatcher-1.dsk /romtype1 sdsnatcher</CommandLine>
<KeyMap plus1="hotkey_disk_change"/>

In this example all disks of SDSnatcher are packet in one .zip file. The '+' of the first controller is mapped to 'hotkey_disk_change'.

It is also possible to map buttons of a wiimote to keyboard keys of the MSX. This can be useful for some games. Example:

<KeyMap plus1="y" minus1="n"/>

Another thing that is worth mentioning is that some games can only be played using the MSX keyboard. For this kind of games use:

<Settings KeyboardJoystick="true"/>

Which makes the first wiimote control the arrow keys of the MSX keyboard instead of joystick 1.

By the way, when you point your wiimote to the screen an on screen keyboard will pop-up.

Aha.. I never pointed the WiiMote to the screen after booting the emulator. This works great, thanks Smile Smile
One more question: FDD#1 doesn't seem to be able to get music out of the SCC cartridge. Is it possible in some way to force the SCC cart into slot #1 or #2?

<CommandLine>... /romtype1 scc</CommandLine>
or
<CommandLine>... /romtype1 sccplus</CommandLine>
or
<CommandLine>... /romtype1 KonamiSCC</CommandLine>

I suggest to try the first. If not working properly, try the other settings.
See also the SDSnatcher example in my previous post. In the first example there the SDSnatcher cartridge (also with SCC) is inserted in the same way.

Try the classic controller. It works like a charm. I'm used playing games with the keyboard, but this works for me too.

I hope the will keep improving this emu and will be adding more options.

I haven't got it to run at all yet... Seen a keyboard, loaded some software, but my screen goes black... The keyboard is useless in my situation as well...

A total how to install document would be welcome...
