Eh, openMSX has RS232 support and it has had it for quite some time...

It supports the rom, but dont work like an rs232, so is useless.

mth: he means this.

Exact.

Other possibilities

-support Laserdisk (pioneer px7)
-support (future) symbos rs232 --> tcp

In the obsonet side, we have the bluemsx support, but only under windows.

Is planned obsonet support for symbos too.

Are there any plans to support Yamaha KYBT2 networking (YM8032 chip) ?
It can be very useful for diskless Yamaha YIS503IIIR owners with tnt23's msx-link.

Anyway, no problems/bugs at all?? Come on! I don't believe that!

I am testing the new release with my frontend, and the MSX emulation is working flawlessy so far...

The only minor glitches I had are caused by some bad GFX on the title screen of Zanac A.I. when emulated under a MSX1 machine... well, have a look:

...but I am still not sure if the tested ROM is a bad dump, so...

EDIT: Under C-Bios v0.21 for MSX2 the Title screen is displayed properly, while it's still corrupt when I select to run it under C-Bios v0.21 for MSX1 or Philips NMS 8250.

No plans, but if we get information (preferably attached to a feature request item in our tracker), it is possible we implement it. But we need software to test it with!

The Zanac thing is a known problem, it exists in our bug tracker since ages. It seems to be caused by some very tricky timing problem, IIRC.

Laserdisk is also an existing feature request.

I was more asking about what *bugs* you found than what features you are missing. I want to know if 0.6.2 is worth to release or if it contains (critical) problems.

Thanks for your feedback, though! Your feature requests are also appreciated, but it was not the reason why I started this thread. You can submit them any time to our feature request tracker on sf.net; please do so if you want to make sure we don't forget about it.

By the way, Cax, please contact by e-mail if you know details about the Yamaha YIS503IIIR; I have an experimental config file for it for openMSX and I'd like you to test it a bit.

I'll post some details here, please comment if something is correct or something is wrong. Both are interesting to hear!

- MSX2
- no memory mapper readback limitation (as in turboR e.g.)
- cassette port
- slot 0-0: basic/bios with SHA1SUM 0f851ee7a1cf79819f61cc89e9948ee72a413802
- slot 1 and 2 are the external slots
- slot 3 is expanded
- slot 3-1 contains the sub ROM (I have no data about mirroring, this requires a 64k slot dump)
- slot 3-1 also contains a CP/M ROM. (How can it be tested?)
- slot 3-2 contains a 128kB memory mapper
- 128kB VRAM on a V9938
- YM2149 PSG
- RTC
- printer port

I also have some comments about the 805, which is similar, but has the following differences:
- slot 3-0: Painter with sha1sum 7fd2a28c4fdaeb140f3c8c8fb90271b1472c97b9
- slot 3-1: diskROM instead of CP/M ROM, WD2793 FDC

So, the sub ROM and BASIC/BIOS ROMs seem to be the same.

Is this correct?

Any info is welcome...!

I thought it was something other than timing. blueMSX had the same or similar bug earlier but I can't remember what I did to fix it. I thought it got fixed in openMSX at the same time but looks like I'm wrong. I'll try to remember what I did.

@cax. I'm also interested in the YM8032 chip so if you have any information, I'd be happy to look at it.

@manuel: obsonet is fully supported (at least the ethernet version) in blueMSX, so you can get the code there.

@cax: please give me info....

@dvik: yes, if you can remember what fixed that Zanac thing, that would really be helpful. Wouter analysed it a few years ago and he said it's a bug in the program triggered by slightly different timing, IIRC. But if that's wrong, do let us know Smile Obsonet: wasn't that with pcap? AFAIK there are some security problems with that... but let's talk about it on IRC some time.

Anyway, in the mean time there were some small bug fixes and some documentation updates, which give you: pre2 of openMSX 0.6.2:

http://openmsx.sourceforge.net/temp/openmsx-0.6.2-pre2-win32-bin.exe

If you find any *bugs* in this beta, please do let us know!

Note: it includes two Arabic MSX machines.

OK, NOW WAIT A SEC! THIS VERSION SEEMS TO CRASH. WILL POST AN UPDATE SOON, SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE.
