Hi, I have 2 fenner SPC-800, I would like to turn one of these machines into MSX2 +, I know I need to replace the VDP and VRAM memory, but which bios can I use?

not possible. you need a new bios and new VDP. the bios must be from another samsung msx2 at least and that does not exist.

Someone has upgraded a Canon V-20 to MSX2+.

It requires a lot of modification. It's almost easier to build one entirely.

Now that's quite impressive!, indeed an incredible amount of work; but what a machine!

Anyhow, it has too many add-ons. I guess that V9958+ROM parts could be enough to upgrade the Fenner.

No MSX2 bios can work on this machine?

You must at least adapt it to the SPC-800 keyboard and modify a few parameters.
