Are you sure PAC emulation doesn't require a PAC ROM? Tongue
Or is it simply I/O based?

It has no ROM indeed. It's just an FM-PAC without FM and without ROM. So, memory based.

Ah.. so it's similar to an SCC without ROM Smile
I suppose it comes with a utility disk for saving SRAM to disk and vice versa?

Not that I know of. But I don't have the full packaged thing, only the cart itself. Someone?

Nothing Wink
Today I've used it for the first time and it rocks!!!

But, how to use SCC/SCC+? I type in the command line "-extension scc" or "-extension scc+" and I don't hear any SCC/SCC+ sounds.

This emulator only needs a nice GUI and it will become, probably, the best.

The only official utility I know is called FM-PAC.

If you just want to play an SCC cartrdige, you don't need this at all. If you want it for some SCC demo, this should work. What software are you trying to use?

Did you already try one of the Catapult GUIs? See the links on our web page (openmsx.sf.net/)

Catapult it's OK. But it would be better to integrate the GUI with openMSX. What does happen when the game asks me to change the disk and I change it in Catapult? Of course nothing, because it's only a launcher.

Anyway openMSX is an excellent emulator, congratulations! GREAT work and continue improving it!

You can change of disk by using the integrated console (it's like DOS in Windows) : press on F10, then you must use the command line : diska disk2.dsk, you press again on F10 and generally you must press on the spacebar to indicate to the emulated MSX that you have inserted another disk

!!!! It only works if all the disks of the game are in the same directory than the first disk !!!

Of course, a good interface would be better than this integrated command line Tongue

This is not true! It IS possible to change the disks with Catapult. Catapult is NOT 'only a launcher'.

In openMSX, the GUI (Graphical User Interface) is seperated from the main program. This way, it's very easy to develop different user interfaces, so everybody can use the one he or she likes!
There can be a simple interface, an advanced interface, a programmers interface (with debugger, memory viewer, etc), or interfaces targeted specifically at one or more games.

See the Catapult homepage for a description of its current capabilities.

Eventually all openMSX console commands will be accessible from a GUI!
