Err, I can't understand how to download it :")

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).

I downloaded the zip file
I put the executable from the downloaded zip file in the blueMSX folder and deleted the bluemsx configuration file
- Same result with DirectDraw HW accelerated and DirectDraw (this picture https://www.msx.org/forum/msx-talk/emulation/bluemsx-annoyin... is not from me but it's what happens on my scrren
- GDI won't go full screen
- If I pick Direct3D, blueMSX will close when emulation tries to start

I found out that the screen of these laptops is rotated to have the same orientation of the keyboard.
I also tried to search for that file in my search history and history but the laptop I used at the time is gone now

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

I didn't read the manual yet so, please, don't laugh

In a command prompt I type

openmsx-16.0-windows-vc-x64-bin>openmsx.exe -machine "share\systemroms\MSX - Philips VG-8020 + Floppy"

and I get this output

Fatal error: Error in "share/systemroms/MSX - Philips VG-8020 + Floppy" machine: machines/share/systemroms/MSX - Philips VG-8020 + Floppy.xml not found in this context

But I promise I'll be reading it ASAP and I'll get more serious about it

Path specifications are not supported for the -machine parameter. You need to just specify the name and openMSX will look it up in the share/machines folder.
You can also select a machine from the list of found machines in the OSD menu (click 'menu' on the top left), select Hardware -> Change Machine

By the way, I recommend to use the MSI installer.

Got you, I will run the installer as a last resort (I strongly rely on portable versions) but I will try to write an xml for the 8020 with floppy support

Let me know if you need any help with that. You can also use the existing VG 8020 and an existing separate floppy extension.

I think my BIOS is not recognized... I renamed it to vg8020_basic-bios1.rom to match the name wanted by the Philips_VG_8020 xml config file and put it in share\systemroms but openMSX rturns the following error:

Fatal error: Error in "Philips_VG_8020" machine: Couldn't find ROM file for "MSX BIOS with BASIC ROM" vg8020_basic-bios1.rom (sha1: 829c00c3114f25b3dae5157c0a238b52a3ac37db).

I could use some help in writing the xml file for my model

openMSX looks for content, not file names. You need the file with that sha1sum to run the VG 8020 as intended. Or, if you want to override it, put your renamed file next to the xml file (the path is relative to the XML file).

Alright, I managed to change the hash (sha1) of the rom image within the xml file and it worked. Now I need to add the rom for the Philips disk. By the way I fired a .cas file just to test and I could get to load but not to run the game using

CLEAR200,50000!:BLOAD"cas:",&H2000

like I did on a real MSX or blueMSX. It finds the data, loads it but it doesn't run them

That's not strange, the same would happen on a real MSX. There is no ,R behind the BLOAD command to tell it to run it.

It runs on a real MSX and blueMSX

I must have done something wrong with the xml
