Ok, I understood. The name of the parent company is Takaoka Electric Mfg. Co., Ltd (1918~). The division Takaoka System starts in 1984. So this is Takaoka Electric that released the Captain Multi-Station. Wave Mint is another division of Takaoka Electric.

@sdsnatcher: CALL ADJUST can't be viewed as part of Hangul BASIC as Hangul BASIC is not available on AVT CPC-300, Bawareth Perfect MSX2, Talent DPC-300 and Wandy CPC-300, all MSX2 machines manufactured by Daewoo.

Ok, but on the Korean machines, this command resides on the Hangul ROM just like all other Hangul CALL commands.

Are you sure that CALL ADJUST is present on all other models? After you mentioned this, I could only find the arabic "Bawareth Perfect MSX2" roms, and in this case the CALL ADJUST command is part of the MSX2 subROM.

I'm under the impression that this is indeed a Hangul BASIC CALL command that Daewoo backported for their export MSX2 machines. Don't you think that this is a better description for the wiki?

Let's say it's an hybrid situation like for PUT KANJI (standard MSX instruction, but only useful on Japanese machines, so a kind a pre-Kanji BASIC instruction).

Here it's the contrary: an Hangul BASIC instruction becomes a standard MSX instruction, but only on the MSX2 manufactured by Daewoo for export.

I've adapted the pages in this approach.

Just to say that the Japanese often write in capitals because it is more suitable in sentences with Kanji. The wiki is in English so there is no need to re-edit the wiki to capitalize the words like them.

Maybe it's being said before but hey, this site is quite big.
What I'd like to know is why with the Panasonic MSX2+ models you're adviced to first check if there's a 2 at &H2D. Is this to confirm anything vital? Every MSX2+ (upgrade) will return that value.

These ports are used to expand I/O ports. So if you don't verify which machine/device you want to access, you may cause it to malfunction.

(in fact, these extended ports have been used very little but this is not a reason not to do it)

Then it could be perfected in some way. This little turbo tool knows if it's a Panasonic MSX2+ or not.
I'm not 100% sure of who its author is anymore. My memory tells me it was a friend of mine. If so, sources could be available if I ask.

I received the source, for those interested:

	in	a,(40H)
	cpl
	push	af
	ld	a,8
	out	(40H),a		; Factorycode 8 (Panasonic) to I/O port 40h
	in	a,(40H)		; read back value
	cpl			; invert all bits
	cp	8		; if value is not the same
	jr 	nz,NotWx	; Then it's not a FX/WX/WSX
	xor	a		; send 0 to I/O port 41h
	out	(41H),a		; set 5,37MHz mode (1 is go back to 3,57MHz)
NotWX:	pop	af
	out	(40H),a

I do not have any asm skills so don't ask me questions
