MSXHub is a package manager that allows you to install software directly to your MSX computer from the Internet using an UNAPI compatible network card. A new version has been released.

These are the changes since the last version:

  • It's now possible to download arbitrary files using the `get` command. For example: hub get http://server/file
  • Latest version has been compiled using sdcc: 3.8.0
  • Bugfix: Now the progress bar show K when size is greater than 1024 and B when it's lower. Size is also padded to the left so it's always in the same position.
  • Bugfix: bad label names in dos.c ASM functions

Since the first release a lot of new packages have been added, including all the titles from MSXdev'18 so they are easily installed and played in a real MSX computer.

To upgrade to the latest release just run hub upgrade hub

Really cool initiative!

I feel like a combination with SofaRun would be nice: SofaRun a game that you don't have, but can be immediately downloaded and run from a server! Smile The list comes from the/a remote server! What do you think, Louthrax? Tongue

Well done! Works great!
I'm working on a wifi cartridge. Would be great to add support for MSXHUB.
Does it work with Ethernet UNAPI or TCP/IP UNAPI required?

Thanks!

Another wifi ethernet project is in progress? That's nice to hear! I can't wait to know more about it.

MSXHub is using the TCP/IP UNAPI. The ethernet specification is too low level for the purpose of the application Smile
