This page was last modified 13:42, 9 March 2011 by NYYRIKKI.

Detecting MSX type can be done by reading address #2D from Main BIOS Here is list of available values:

  • 0 = MSX 1
  • 1 = MSX 2
  • 2 = MSX 2+
  • 3 = MSX turbo R

Please note: Detecting MSX type is enough only to detect "minimum VDP type". There are MSX1 models with V9938 (SVI-738, Yamaha CX-5M) and many MSX2 owners have updated their VDP from V9938 to V9958.
