The MSXVR team has published on GitHub the service manual of the upcoming MSXVR computer. The service manual, available in PDF format in both English and Spanish, contains an overview of the hardware characteristics and main software features of the device and comes with nice illustrations for ease of reading.

As the service manual will be included with each and every MSXVR computer sold, the MSXVR team encourages everyone to read it before they send the manual to the printing shop for printing and binding. Any suggestions and spelling and grammar errors reporting are welcome.

From what I've read before it's their own...

The author did not want to comply to the GPL, so it's not based on blueMSX or openMSX at least. It's a pity, I would have loved both projects (openMSX and MSXVR) benefit from each other. Alas.

MSXPlayer is based on fMSX itself, isn't it?

Looks like Word is at it again:

From the "player" we can access the menu options for
cassette or the accessible panel using the corresponding
key combination (see page ¡Error! Marcador no definido.)

So the power supply is external .... That's too bad.

That's what I thought. This is such a nice compact design and it would benefit from a internal PSU so much...
Well, nothings perfect, hm?

what's the disadvantage of an external psu? if it breaks you get a new one instead of having to repair your machine, they're cheaper, no region issues. i only see advantages.

Too bad / a pity OpenMSX isn’t integrated in the system.

But good news to hear the manual is out! And it looks good!!

Now I hope the MSXVR itself will be out soon..

I actually prefer external PSU, way easier to replace if something happens Smile
