On the last day of 2017, TNI released DSR2TOOLS, a toolset made by BiFi for the Dalsori R2.0.

For now, there are 2 tools available:

  • DSR2SET, to configure the various settings of the Dalsori R2, including
    - Toggle MSX-AUDIO and/or MoonSound Compatibility
    - Select 2 MB ROM and 2 MB SRAM or 4 MB SRAM
  • DSRSROM, to load an alternative sample ROM into the SRAM.

Obviously, these tools require a Dalsori R2.0, the OPL4 cartridge with various new features, to work, as well as an MSX running MSX-DOS(2).

Just like with his previous toolset, PSQTools for the Playsoniq cartridge, more tools will be added when released.

Nice!

I wonder what the best way to detect the presence of the DalSoRi R2.0 is. I reckon since the MSX-AUDIO BIOS is not loaded in the FlashROM by default (right?), I can’t simply search for an ID string in a slot.

By the way, for those interested in one, it seems a new batch is in preparation.

Thanks TNI Wink

@Grauw
I use following methods to test DalSoRi R2.
1. enable/disable RAM mode. RAM test must be success when enabled, otherwise it must be failed.
2. enable/disable I/O ports. Test if OPL4 is working for the selected port.

This methods were applied in upcoming FlashPack memory tool (fpmt.com) v0.6
