Hi Dvik, what about the debugger? Remember this post:

well, why not having a special feature that you can enable at the menus that would allow the user to unconditionally modify any memory? VRAM, RAM, ROM and on any condition: Running, Paused, Debugging, etc... ? It would be an advanced feature.

2nd) About this
Quote:
A similar feature that has been requested is to be able to write asm code and compile it into RAM directly in the debugger. For the case you mentioned thats probably even better. But I'm not sure when we'll get to this feature.

Why not something simpler, like user can create his .obj using pasmo or tniasm and then BlueMSX could import the binary file to a certain location? Again, to ANY kind of memory?

Right!

And this one isn't a complete development log, with known bugs, todos etc. It's just a list with news. Tongue

So is BlueMSX compatible with Syntax Infinity demo now? Without any "clitches" ?

Who's the person responsible for the debugger coding?

Well, so, let me take my PMP hat now and ask you:
Gimme the date, or at least the date when you'll give me the date Smile

Anyway, it's nice to hear that hap is participating. So, can we expect some MEISEI additions to BlueMSX, like Tile/Sprite Viewer and PSG Toy?

Don't expect it. If I add it, it's going to be a surprise Face

It seems that for example MSX1EMU works correctly on BlueMSX only if I wear blue socks. Sad

If I exit and restart BlueMSX enough times, then it might work... Same problem on my laptop & desktop... Crying

Usually I get MSX1 with 16KB RAM... (free mem after boot shows about 7K)

(= Still problems with debugger & dram mode.)
