You make a generality from rare cases. Usually, the author indicates when he does not want others to distribute his software. It is enough to respect what the author indicates or asks, and there is no conflict.

Because W.I.P.
I am translating the documentation then I'll add it to downloads when it's done.

Edit: I modified the link because the TXT file was not the last version.

Guys, I have some details regarding the FS-5000 but I am not sure where to put it. Some of it likely also applies to the FS-5500 series (but I cannot confirm as I don’t own that machine). Some info also applies to at least the FS-4600F (about the disk ROM). So here goes:

1. As is written in the wiki already, the machine has 2 volume controls. 1 main volume control slider and another turn knob volume control for the headphones. Additional information is that the headphone circuitry is behind the main volume control (so turning down the main volume will also impact the headphone output).

2. This machine, and also the FS-4600F allow to format disks in 40 tracks per inch mode (this besides the more common 80 tracks per inch mode). The machine allows this for both single sided as well as double sided. Thes details is not present in the wiki of the machine (and maybe should be added to some more general wiki page as well?). Also I formatted a disk double sided, single track (the BDOS calls it just 2 sided on call format) and copied MSXDOS.SYS and COMMAND.COM onto the disk (from within Nextor booted from a Carnivore2). I then inserted the disk into a FS-A1ST and it booted from the disk (I suspected it would but was not sure).

I have not tested audio output from RGB21 connector yet, I suspect it is also stereo and is changed to mono by the switch but need to confirm it. I am not sure if my home build (by Omega) RGB21 to SCART cable is even wired for stereo Wink.

They are both technical details. So the best place is in the Specifications part, just before the Slot Map.

You must insert it at your own risks (use a switch or an emulator!) before entering BLOAD"SOUNDKUN.BIN", R.

This kind of remark should not be in the Wiki. It is an incentive to do what should not be done.

"Do not insert a cartridge with the MSX turned on!!!" is the remark adequate used by MSX makers except when a switch is present in the slot. (Even this switch was quickly abandoned because inefficient.)

Well, in this case, it is impossible to use the extension!!!!

Do you see the contradiction???? Maybe a more elaborated text would be better....
