Recently I tried FD ( FutureDisk ) #11 on my NMS8250 with Nowind Interface and Philips Music Module ( NMS1205 ).
It seems the disk image and real disk seem to give a hang on Loading Screen when you select 'Magazine'.

This problem doesn't seem to occur in openMSX, it loads perfectly and continues to next menu.

Is openMSX too perfect or not? Since it's about emulating the original system.

Now I'm wondering if more people discovered the same problem, where the REAL MSX crashes/hangs and openMSX skips the hang/crash.

What do you mean with too perfect? I'd say it's a bug. But you'll have to verify this in openMSX using exactly the same configuration, so also with the Nowind and Music module.

Manuel
on real system even without nowind music module and original disk. It hangs/crashes at same point.
No matter what I try on the Real NMS8250. It keeps on crashing at same point with the real disk and the .dsk which I downloaded of MRC.
I tried same configuration settings in openMSX. and no problem occurs here. no hang, no crash.

Where real system crashes, openMSX should crash as well in my opinion.

Does your real disk actually contain the image of the diskimage you ran in openMSX?

I just tried the FD11 image downloaded from MRC on my Turbo R FS-A1ST (no music module present).
I have no issues loading the magazine part from the selector and reading the texts.
As I do not have a NMS8250, I have no idea what might be wrong.

What do you mean with real disk - the original FD11 disk from 1993?

My bet is that your FD#11 is rotten... jelle77.home.xs4all.nl/nd/slam.gif

Can someone try to put the MRC disk image on a floppy and run it on a real 8250?

It might be a Nowind issue...?
