Hello
I digitize some of my msx tapes.
I can load them on my MSX with the tape cable conected to the PC sound card, but the emu don´t load any of them.
Anyone knows why? Should i activate something or load with a special parameter?
Thanks

Did you try to convert them to .CAS format with wav2cas?

I´m trying to load my Triple Comando tape.
It´s a spanish game. The Cas file freeze in this stage when you try to go west:

It´s the only Cas file i found in the net and i think it´s a bad dump like "some" others.
I also try to load Chichen Itza (a spanish text adventure) cause the available CAS file it´s also a bad rip but i couldn´t load on the emulator.

I´ll try wav2cas and also generate the cas file from the real MSX.

Good! I might be interested by your WAV file(s), I'm currently working on a new tool to convert WAV to CAS (with kind of a different approach).

Tolvatar : did you try the files on Martos website (Google search with 'MSX cintas' as keyword) ?

@Louthrax. I tell you when i try it. Thanks

@mars2000you. Yep, it´s the same CAS that on TOSEC pack. It´s the only one i could find

I love the work Martos doing with the CAS format and the thousand of hours he spend on making the dumps, but i think it´s far from perfect.
Don´t know why there´s not a program to make 1:1 tape images on MSX

I was talking about the WAV files loading. What did you do to load it exactly? Which openMSX version did you use? (We improved it a bit recently, and that was well after the 0.12.0 release.)

In principle, a WAV is a perfect way to preserve an MSX tape game. And a post processing step to clean up the file makes it even more perfect (it will compress very well). Some people worked on such tools. But nothing really ever got released, I think...

What settings are you trying on OpenMSX. I find it usually is better at loading wavs than a real MSX. Could you try uploading the wavs so others can see if they can get them running?
