Thanks Manuel, I was just hoping for a bit more. At least some more games have music, I should be grateful for that.

I just might be missing some that have now got music, I've only found a few...

@Manuel

You're right. The other two main points of this BIOS are:

  • Being able to use the MSX-Audio on BASIC. Thus it can play MSX-BASIC songs (*1), and a lot more.
  • Allow compatibility with MSX-Music games that follow the MSX coding guidelines and use the BIOS

@Colemu

There are a list of compatible MSX-Music games on the README.TXT file of the BIOS... Didn't you RTFM? Evil

For MSX-Audio compatible games: Nearly all Compile games/diskstations with FM music, except both Alestes.

*1: Those kind of BASIC songs with CALL MUSIC/CALL AUDIO on the beginning. There are a lot of those files on the Net

The game Labyrinth, by Pack-in-video, also works with this BIOS. The OPL3_stereo version seems to have trouble with this game, but the OPL3_mono and OPL1 versions run fine.

someone forwarded the bios to me, no readme included. I will download it from the Net and read it.
Thanks SD
I thought there was more to it than Manuel suggested Cool

Update:
Read it, pretty much whats already in this thread....
The music to Fire Hawk (HD) is amazing!

@sd_snatcher: is the bios still in development (i.e. any further improvements in the pipeline)

note: that link was very handy :-)

BTW: not your fault most games are incorrectly programmed......

@Colemu

Right now the BIOS development is halted, both due to lack of time mainly because there's still no English translation of the chapters 3 and 4 of the MSX Datapack vol2.

Shame nobody can do a translation for you mate... Crying

Great work so far, a VAST improvement over the one that came with it! Big smile

Hi all.

@Sd_Snatcher:
Can you make a special version of Bios 1.3 without disconnect the Fm-Pac (Msx-Music).
I want to make a recording simultaneously:
Music Module + Moonsound + Midi Pac => SC-88Pro
it might be interesting to listen to the instrumental richness of the 3 devices at the same time.
Thank you very much.

Does that bios disconnect fm-pac? That's sour...
Funny fact is that at this moment I am listening to moonblaster music on the way you describe, just some other synthesizer though...

Disconnecting MSX-Music should be optional, as Moonblaster stereo requires MSX-Audio + MSX-Music.
