Firmware

The firmware is launched automatically when you boot the machine. Bypassing this software on startup requires the user to press the DEL key during boot until a Beep sound. You need also to press this key when a memory extension is inserted in this machine.

The built-in software is a graphic application in screen 7. Its name is 'Hot Paper". Some features are only working with the ML-85AV interface, that was not sold outside Japan.
