mars2000you: did you already find out the real layout of the slots of those machines? AFAIK that was the last thing we mailed about.

About NMS-801 Bios:
I've saved the bios in .ROM (sent to BlueMSX team), and all cassette programs in .CAS.
At start up NMS-801 says:

PHILIPS MSX
version 3.0

But "hidden" in some point of the rom there's:

MSX BASIC
Copyright 1983 by Microsoft

This doesn't appear in Basic environment...

Very strange...

Moreover, software on tape was not (c) by Philips, and I think Philips was not allowed to distribute it...

Sure is a strange computer, I wonder what's the story behind it. It came out later than the other MSX from Philips and was of much lesser quality (keyboard, no cartridge or printer port).

Looks like Philips had some spare parts they didn't know what to do with LOL!
