NOW, I add the whole sound system chapter.

That explain each code byte of the MUSIC string.

Is a chapter very interesting for musician and music editors programmers.

Maybe someone would like to volunteer to proofread these English pages? It would make things a lot easier for the potential developers, I guess.

And uhm.. how about that beta version? Tongue

Just to show the MSX community -it's real-. It doesn't have to do a lot yet, future versions don't even have to be backwards compatible... but I think I'm not the only one who'd like to have a quick peek at what is coming up...

No much time before i said "lack a week for the demo version...." i think 5 days before..
i think in 2 days i release that versión if my real-work leftme.

Be example just yesterday i modify the "binary to text converter" routine for speed up that..... yesterday i fail, I was thinking that the routine was slow because it used the general purpose function DIV64 and I replaced it by SHIFT registers and I almost obtained the same speed when listing a dump of numbers. I was astounded because now I don't have idea of where it gets lost all the speed.

Hey fly,

I did a little work on the split routines. I think I'd be able to implement the palette split, split with vertical offset, vram bank split and the horizontal 'copper bar' split. Ofcourse these routines will suffer from different processor speeds. A fast cpu means the split will occur sooner than with a normal 3,58MHz Z80. (ie a line int on line 32 is handled on line 33 on R800 vs line 36! on Z80)

Anyways, lemme know...

I translated the first part of the memory admins chapter..

That start comments how the MSX norm do the memory mapping... and how that was expanded then...

Then start with the mnbios hardware expansion...

The second part of the general memory administration explain all about how the MNBIOS will mapping all the RAM memory, and how the MNBIOS manage and interact with the 7 sub-CPU if that exist on the system. Explaining the boot proccess as well the file handling. And too comments all the new concepts created for the MNBIOS.

As the MNBIOS got a lot of new wonders concepts about memory mapping, i are in position to say, the MNBIOS is far to the competence or that olds OS. like DOS2.
