Well, that's good news ... a new MSX generation is coming .... and the Revival is on his way Smile

a new MSX generation is coming ....

NickEng said, he'd pick up someprojects he started almost 20 years ago -- that hardly qualifies as a "new Generation" Tongue But it indeed is fun to see people (re)turning to the MSX scene Smile

NickEng: for more comfortable ASM programming, be sure to check out assemblers other than ZEN. For example Compass (users.pandora.be/jon/msx/compass.html) on
MSX or sjAsm(home.planet.nl/~onzegrotevriend/) on PC/Windows, for cross-platform development...

That's what MSX is all about Smile

Let's pass it on to following generations! Bart, Yum, Flyguille, Evulopah, and all others with recently born kids --> Take an example from this Wink

Ok next issue....

Now that Zen loads and runs I have entered a small program as a test, and to rememember how to use zen...

Got it all compiled ok, but I can not save the code...

I have a diskette loaded into blueMSX and I have saved to it fine under BASIC, but the W command in zen to save the assembler code as an ASCII file failes with an I/O error...

Any ideas...

Did you format the mounted disk, NickEng? A corrupt FAT could cause an I/O error. I know, it's a stupid mistake, but I made it many times myself. You prolly know how to format a disk in BASIC. If not, here's the deal:

CALL FORMAT

and follow the instructions onscreen.

Sorry my mistake, i put diskette should have been cassette....as zen was originally set to work with them and not diskettes

Mmmm... I don't know in what way I/O errors could occur with cassettes, but I'd assume that some of the problems are caused by the volume setting of the cassette player (it always has to do with volume settings ^_^). I don't really know how cassette volume can be altered in blueMSX, but I'm sure you can find out somewhere; blueMSX has a very intuitive user interface.

Another thing: maybe you are at the end of the tape? Try to rewind it (blueMSX should support that too, as I've seen other emulators doing it) or try to mount a new cassette image.

Mars2KU/dvik: I assume blueMSX can write to tape images? If so, that's not the problem. If blueMSX can't write to tape images, that's the cause Tongue
