Today, a first preview of EdiOS was released. EdiOS is a new GUI (graphical user interface) for MSX2 and higher. EdiOS is developed mainly in C, assembly is only used when speed is essential, or when a functionality that C can't offer by itself is needed.

  • Support more than one SCREEN mode. The first version is likely to use SCREEN 5, 6, 7 and 8
  • The right mouse button can be used to open a properties menu
  • Support for copying files by copy/pasting them or drag-and-drop
  • Correct handling of various file extensions (e.g. let ExecROM execute .ROM files)

On the EdiOS website you can watch a couple of screen shots and download an early version of EdiOS.

More precisions :

- this tool requires MSX-DOS 2.2 or higher
- for the moment, the link to the OS file on the website is wrong - the correct link is :

Benoit,

The link is correct. It redir for download counter, but I noticed it is off line, I don´t know why...
But the link you passed can be used, since the download counter will not acessed.

I have a question: this GUI can be used with HARD DISK or LS-120 drives or is only for working with normal floppies?

It also lists msx-dos2.xx. I so far never seen a dos2 program that doesn't run from IDE/SCSI

Why do the files need to be in the root?
