My laptop has an Intel video board.
Basically, this is what happens when I go full screen with DirectDraw accelerated or non-accelerated. GDI won't go full screen: https://www.msx.org/forum/msx-talk/emulation/bluemsx-annoyin...

Long ago I found on some forum a version or build of BlueMSX that got rid of that but I lost that exacutable and local backup before I could save it to some cloud and I can't remember the exact name.

BlueMSX is the only emulator which allows me to use a custom configuration to replicate my actual MSX

What is the configuration of your actual MSX? I think I can make a configuration for openMSX for it as well.

Just a shot in the dark, but try the "never released" 2.9.0 version

Philips VG-8020 + floppy drive via cartridge
I tried to pack the ROMs (BIOS) in the shared directory (I didn't read the instructions for OpenMSX yet, I admit it) but it didn't work. I also tried without much effort just the VG-8020 ROM (BIOS) but I couldn't get it to work

Did you check the zip file on http://www.msxarchive.nl/pub/msx/emulator/openMSX/ ?
Put the content in your share/sytemroms folder and tell me what exactly isn't working. "I couldn't get it to work" is a bit vague :P

Download the ZIP file from the main page, the exe file will be included entirely in its folder and you will be able to copy it in your existing blueMSX directory: https://github.com/ducasp/blueMSX

(click on the green Code option, then select Download ZIP)

Either download the entire project as a zip, as mars2000you pointed out, or go to the .exe file (https://github.com/ducasp/blueMSX/blob/master/Compiled%20Exe...) and click on the download button to download that file in particular. Then eeplace the .exe of your current BlueMSX installation (or rename it and keep both to play safe).

@theNetruo: the second option gives an uncomplete file (at least for me), that's why I don't have mentioned it.

Hum... that's strange; the download button has always worked for me.
May be you clicked the "View raw" link, that is intended for text-based filed, instead of the "Download" button on the right...

No .... it's maybe just my browser (Chrome) and/or some extensions.
