RuMSX is a multilingual emulator of MSX homecomputers. It is well known for the quality of the help files, that contain comprehensive documentation of MSX-Basic and MSX-BIOS and many original manuals.

The last version released, marked V0.81, provides the following changes:

  • Added "Chakkari Copy" ROM-type and documentation.
  • Introduced a new "Control Panel" to support cartridges with additional controls on them.
  • Fixed several problems and errors in printer emulation (later printer-changes had no effect, MSX-printer sequence ESC+"S" was improperly handled and produced garbage, adjusted incorrect linefeed, ...).
  • Programs like "Dynamic Publisher", "Game Master" and "Chakkari Copy" are now printing in the expected layout.
  • Tapes were mistakenly always forwarded to the end, even if "Automatically seek to start" was specified in the Options.
  • Disk error information (if any) was improperly displayed.
  • Fixed MSX-Audio interrupts (audio still unsupported) and freezes in MSX-Audio and Philips Music-Module.
  • Now the Music Module can play music on the MIDI port.
  • Updated MSXtra documentation.

Great, but ....
.. please, include in disk manager the management of HDD images !!!
FAT12 at least, FAT 16 will be fantastic !!!

Simply use the Japanese DiskExplorer with the MSX plugin. Although conceived for SCSI harddisks images, it works also with IDE harddisks images.

I downloaded Japanese DiskExplorer & MSX plugin.
But they seems to manage already existing Images or Real disk.
I'd like to create new one.
Maybe we must use DISK MANAGER TO CREATE A custom EMPTY DSK (how many Sectors, fat, heads etc.??) and then after trying to manage it with JDE ??
The Help is not useful because it is in japaneese !!!

Why not use BlueMSX to create one?

I suggest that you take a backup of your HDD image first... just in case... I've not tried the MSX plugin, but I remember trying this software long time ago (probably some really old version) and it had a bad habit of corrupting the image some times when writing... Maybe MSX plugin is needed to solve this problem, I don't know.

Tried with
- creating an empty HDD of 200 mb from BlueMSX and then opening it with DiskEsxplorer. It says "boot not found"
- using a working image of 32mb and then opening it with DiskEsxplorer. It says "boot not found"

Isn't possible to use the MSX PLUGIN with DISK MANAGER or something like that ??

I think you need to select the "vmware plain disk" option when you open the hard disk image.

The MSX Plugin has not been created for Disk Manager.
