I see one Sony HBK-30 FDC in those shelves :)

The Sony HBK-30 is not for sale so lets hope for Charchano's cart. The NoWind cart will definitely be on my shopping list but a working FDC would be nice to have too.

Meanwhile I can send you a WAVeR v3 alpha version, to load your own programs (ROM format only, without mapper) into the MSX using the cassette interface at a fast pace. All you need is a good WAV replayer, such a PC. Loading speed is higher than 1 KB/s (>8.500 bauds).

Tell me if that would suit you until a new FDC comes Wink

From my experience with MicroWAVer, the most stable WAV/MP3 replayer is a DVD player with all audio enhancing functionality switched off. But for development purposes loading from PC's soundcard should be a more convenient way.

A PDA could be also very useful Smile

Sounds interesting. I haven't got a reply from Carchano yet. I'll see what he says about the disk drive interface and if it is available. 1kb/s sounds pretty fast and if it can be done using a PC sound card it sounds pretty easy to use too. I suppose there are good tools to generate those wav files.

@fdvik: In my test i've used a pocket PC as a cassette recorder but the max speed i can reach is 2400 bauds. at 4800 does not work.

I've uploaded NEMESIS to a SCC+ cart in 60 seconds using the cassette interface. That's my best record so far Wink

PingPong:

standard MSX routines work stable up to ~3200 bauds on almost any MSX. For faster speeds you need a special turbo-loader and data compression.

On Pocket PC it's also a matter of WAV/MP3 player you are using. Some of them can distort a sound.

pitpan:

knowing that Nemesis can be compressed to ~67K, it's really a good game for speed demonstration :-) Usually Konami 128K megaroms are zipped to 90-100K.
