Hey guys,

Version 0.941 released:
- SCC Expansion Cartridge support
- New SCC preset added
- SCC chip detection bugfix

http://webmsx.org

Montana John and the Templar's Treasure now works fine!

Also, you can now have an SCC-only expansion cartridge inserted to be used by MSX-DOS/Disk software.
The easiest way is to select preset "SCC" from the URL. With this the machine will be configured with the SCC Cartridge inserted in one of the expanded slots (just like the disk interface is by default).

Remember that presets are cumulative. So you can for instance specify something like:
?presets=pal,scc or ?presets=scc,nodisk

The SCC preset is not needed to run games which already use the Konami SCC cartridge, like Gradius2, etc.

Regards,
Peccin

Thanks for the update and for this impressive new emulator!

It runs at perfect speed on the iPhone (5S, iOS9.0.2), but there are some issues:

1) There's no sound and no fullscreen support either on Safari or Google Chrome. If I try ALT+ENTER on it complains that "fullscreen is not supported in your browser"
2) Keyboard (external, bluetooth) support seems to be buggy. On Safari, the keys seems to get stuck after they're pressed. On Google Chrome, the keyboard is just ignored.

@ppeccin
I just stumbled on this, and all I can say is: WOW!
I especially love how you can just drag&drop a file there and click the full-screen button. It's all very polished indeed!

I've dabbled a bit with turning my own (java-based) emulator to a javascript version a few years ago but couldn't get audio and timing to work reliably, so I quit early. Looking at your emulator, it seems things have quite improved in those areas. The audio especially works very nicely!

If you're open to the idea, I might be interested in contributing to this. Maybe by adding MSX2 support or FM support or something. I'm not all that great with javascript (but not a total newbie), but I'm experienced with developing emulators in java and audio stuff.

Hey Snatcher, thanks for the report. Happy to know that!

For now WMSX is not really prepared to run on mobile devices like phones yet. It's in my roadmap for the future, sure, but for now there is no proper input methods implemented, and virtually no tests at all.

Stay tuned! ;-)

@erikd Yeah, it's cool it already looks very polished, including all the possibilities/options it already has (including things like color mode and screen filtering).
@ppeccin Changing CRT mode (Alt+R) doesn't seem to have any effect? (Should it (already)?)
(I do notice some keyboard/input glitches when playing with Alt + something.. e.g. in Maze of Galious Popolon might keep goin in a certain direction, and I have to press + release once that direction to break from it.)

AFAIC I think it would be cool if erik joins forces.. But let's see what Peccin has to say about that of course.. Smile (You could always make/do a fork otherwise?)

Very cool project and it looks pretty nice already.
As soon as there is MSX2 support, I think I am going to do a smal rebuild on the Fony website and use this emulator to play our demos Smile

Hello!

Version 0.942 released:
- SCC-I Sound Cartridge Expansion support
- New SCCI preset added

http://webmsx.org

Finally figured out how the SCC-I Sound Cartridges work!
Now all Konami Games Collection disks work if you use the new "SCCI" preset. Gradius 1 with SCC-I is really great!
Also tested with loader "SCROM" and it works fine.

Regards,
Peccin

PPeccin, do you have a formal roadmap on what to do next, or you are getting stuff to do as they appear necessary as you work?

I am a little curious on what might come next Smile

Hey, the guy is just having fun programming an emulator in Javascript. Such guys do not have a formal roadmap!

If you're curious, just ask him what he thinks he'll implement next Tongue

"formal" roadmap seems too much indeed! Sorry about that...
