I'm an uncommon MSXfan which is from China.Now I'm developing a MSX2-Like Pixel game on PC using SCC soundfont.About half a year ago I began to use trilotracker to make some SCC Musics,and now I had made 7 songs which 5 of them are for the game.In terms of Trilotracker is a MSX-based music tracker,the only way to put out its song is by using recording tool or of course TT players.Now I'd like to find out if there are any methods to output TTmusics accurately like using Famitracker's NSF output option to output a KSS or VGM format file outside the TMU file.If that can be done it will be a nice job for MSX musics which is made in recent years.

You can record VGM files with openMSX, for instance.

I ram into issues recording SCC from openMSX. It works if you record from a Konami SCC ROM game but not if you play a tune in software and have a Konami SCC extension installed.

Really? I think the script is trying its best to find the SCC devices. It's looking in all slots for the proper device. I just tested it, and it found the SCC correctly. Not sure what is going on then...?

Acually there's no MSX machines(including 1 2 TR) released or sold in mainland china.Only MSX Turbo R has been sold in Taiwan but with a bleak sales.Althrough MSX almost has no relationship with china ,however some learning machines in china imitated the appearance of MSX machines.The appearance of China Learning Machine,which is known as “中华学习机 ”in chinese ,looks similar to a MSX2 Computer.Nowadays MSX Computers in china are mostly bought from Japan.Because of MSX's low popularity in china,china MSXfan is rare to see.Most of chinese nostagia game lovers prefer NES than other machines for that NES is the only old game console released in china,known as SUBOR(小霸王).

Okay now I found that OpenMSX has a vgm record option via openmsx's console command.Use f10 to open console and then enter "vgm_rec" , then it will start to output vgm file.But when I entered this command it says"Invalid Output Detected , use tab completion".Is the program can't find the start position of this SCC song?Or there's another problem Question ?

i think the syntax is the problem. page with console commands seems to be incomplete, but you can peek into the source code here and look for options :)

Type help vgm_rec for information about the command syntax.
