KdL of GNO~GNI has released a new, freeware version of LogiBOOT, a tool with which you can alter the bootsector of any MSX compatible floppy disk, in order to change some settings during system boot, such as video mode (PAL/NTSC) or a nice quick disk feature.

Trick for games on disk:

< You will have more possibility to apply options selected with minimal options enabled!! >

Examples:

- PUYO PUYO with any options: "NORMAL LABEL"
- GOLVELLIUS MSX2 @ 60Hz: "NTSC" with "DESTRUCTIVE"
- AKIN / BURAI @ 60Hz: "MANUAL: 0000b" video mode with "DESTRUCTIVE" and all other options disabled
- MSXDOS2 memory patch: "NEW MAP DOS2"

HDD interfaces support (1st update):
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Evil Sunrise IDE: supported! (testing it again)
Copy all LogiBOOT files into a sub-directory of hard disk:
RUN"AUTOEXEC.BAS" from this sub-directory to start it
+ "SURE" mode for optimal results.
"NORMAL LABEL" mode does not supported!

NOTE:
If you have a copy problem with MSXDOS2 then you can send
all files from original disk to an other in MSXDOS1 before!!

Nice.. but we've had such a program already before the harddisk galore ('93?) Wink
As soon as a disc would boot you would have the option:
50 / 60 Hz
Sony disk speed thingy
Save boot on an other disc
And an other option...
When an option was selected, the disc would start as usual.

Nice that such a proggy now is extended with more options
