There is any MegaFlashROM with tinned contacts as I explained you. I'm the maker of the cartridge, so I'm the most reliable source of information.
It seems you don't want to belive me for whatever reasons. But that does not mean that your information is wrong.

The picture you posted has flash gold contacts. Do you know the difference between gold and tin?
Just compare the color of the capacitors and the contacts? Have they the same color? Really?

You, as several times in the past, can not acept you are wrong and don't like to be corrected.

@Jorito: AFAIK, the only false information is the one provided by gdx.
I can provide photos of the same batch of the PCB gfx posted (04|10 printed on the board) to prove it.

I don't care about proof, but I do care about a good healthy atmosphere here at MRC, and a 'did not', 'did too' discussion like has been going on here between Guillian and gdx is more illustrative of 4 year olds playing in a sandbox than a good productive discussion.

If it were up to me I'd trust the guy who actually makes the cartridges, but in the end I mostly care that you guys solve your differences without creating a (potential) flamewar here at MRC. So work it out and move forward and do it without dragging the rest of the community into it. And like I said, keep an eye on your tone or we will be giving a cooldown ban.

Can a moderator please delete following categories? I can't seem to (find a way to) do that. All 4 mentioned below can be found under "Wiki -> Special pages -> Unused categories".

Category:Yamaha_S3527
Category:Toshiba_T9769
Category:Toshiba_T7937
Category:Toshiba_T7775

It makes no sense to (ab)use the Category mechanism to describe individual IC's... oO I've already created same-named regular pages, copying whatever was in above pages as much as possible.

EDIT: please add "Category:Yamaha_S1985" to above list...

I'm not fully sure but I think we didn't disallow normal users from deleting those categories. If you go to Wiki > Special pages > Unused categories and click on one of those, di you get the category page itself? In my case, there's a few tab buttons at the top of the page, one of them is the 'delete' option. Have you tried that?

Nope... just "Category / Discussion / Edit / History / Watch" tabs when I do that. No "delete" option or tab to be found anywhere.

Just in case, I tried emptying the contents of the page. But that just left an empty page not a deleted one... LOL!

Got it. Just removed the categories for you. I like the idea to have all the MSX components in the wiki, guess the author just forgot about the distinction between regular pages and categories Smile

You could put them in an "MSX chips" category or something. Or in this case "MSX Engine IC" category or something.

A category "MSX Components" already exists...

Discounting simple IC's like 74LSxxx logic, RAM / EPROM, opamps etc, there aren't that many entries falling in there. A few videochips, a few audio chips, (and why not a few engine IC's too).

Forgot to mention: if you want to know what machines use a particular engine IC, the "what links here" on the page of that engine IC should provide links to most models (once their pages include a link to that engine IC). So it's not necessary to have a category for each engine IC.

For those who think so: and stop where? Create categories for "has grey housing", "has external keyboard", "has built-in floppy drive", "has AZERTY keyboard layout", etc, etc? Then you might as well re-write the Wiki from scratch...

I get the point (and usefulness) of categories, but they shouldn't be (ab)used as random 'tags'. That's not how Wikis work, and that's also not how it's done on Wikipedia for example.

Actually, it is quite used like 'tags'. On Wikipedia there are also many. And they're not really in the way, so it's not a big problem either. I very often use the categories to link to other pages that are also interesting. So I consider them very useful Smile
Random example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bubble_Bobble (check all these categories!)

You may notice how much effort and time it needs to create a new character and then put it in a DATA line then run the program again to see the fruit of your hard work. Now I have three problems I need you to help me in:

1- I need a character and spirit editor which works in MSX or in Android (I don't need a Windows executable 'cos I can't use my PC due to no electricity in my country).
2- How can I BSAVE the new fonts and BLOAD them correctly when I need?!
3- In my program the fonts return to their original form as soon as the screen changes. So how can I keep the new fonts even after SCREEN command is used?!

Thank you in advance my friends.
