ASCII produced/released several documents in the English language.

MSX Technical Data Book

MSX2 Technical Handbook

MSX Technical Data Book Supplement for MSX2

Mine has the following content:

MSX2 Language extensions to the MSX-Basic Version 1.0
Notes for MSX Software Developers
MSX-2 I/O Address Map
MSX2 Basic Input/Output System entry
MSX Memory Organization Information

Is this copy complete?

MSX2 Technical Data Book

The first 4 chapters are in fact updated versions of the chapters in MSX Technical Data Book Supplement for MSX2.
Does a digital copy of this document exists?

MSX Documentation Package
I have three blue Philips binders. Those binders are also mentioned in previous posts.

Content:
"MSX Standard" which contains the MSX Technical Data Book and the MSX2 Technical Databook
"Component Data Book" which contains o.a. VG338 Technical Data Book and S-3527 documentation
"Bios Firmware Listings" which contains the MSX2 Bios Listings

Unfortunately my copy only contains the first 15 chapters. I know several copies of the MSX2 Bios listings are floating around. But I have the impression they all stop at chapter 15.

Does anybody have a complete copy of this listing?

I have a MSX Technical Data Book (Sony) here. It has 340 pages. Of course there is a BIOS entry list in it and a list of BIOS calls, but I can't find a list simular to the list shown above.

Even a partial listing would be of great help. If the rest is found later, it can simply be added.

Just a question: The BIOS listing in the MSX2 Technical Handbook is not a complete list then? There are 126 BIOS entries in Appendix 1, how it compares to the document you are questioning ( MSX2 bios firmware listing) ? The same number of entries, more, less,...

The listing is the commented source listing of the MSX2 Bios. Although I'm not sure if it's the final version.
It's a huge pile of pages, an example:

It's on my to do list to scan the document.
