Here is something i'm thinking right now...

Bringing the XBASIC2 back into slot 0-1 could compromise the loading of some games such as "THE EINDOLON": this is a game in MSX BASIC and M/L that uses a proprietary command "CALL RUN" in conflict with that of XBASIC2 command. But this game could be the only exception to the rule! Wink

Since the SETSMART -F9 option can disable the slots 0-1, 0-2 and 0-3, this game can still be started by updating MGLOCM and SOFARUN with this option. At this point the slot 3-3 will be free again but still connected in the pre-boot phase to the IPL-ROM.

Here is an example of how the source code could become:

    rom_xbas    <=  mem when( (w_prislt_dec(0) and w_expslt0_dec(1) and Slot0Mode and w_page_dec(1)) = '1'                              )else   -- 0-1 (4000-7FFFh)    16 kB  XBASIC2 .ROM / XBASIC21.ROM
                    mem when( (w_prislt_dec(3) and w_expslt3_dec(3) and (not Slot0Mode) and w_page_dec(1) and ff_ldbios_n) = '1'        )else   -- 3-3 (4000-7FFFh)    16 kB  XBASIC2 .ROM / XBASIC21.ROM
                    '0';

To those who didn't see it, Victor Trucco implemented new OPLs in MSX-SM. There's now even OPL3 in MSX-SM ! This is getting better and better. Smile

Now we have Midi out in MSX SM (still in development or maybe it is just the cheap cable used). Smile

Victor has started to deliver the first sampels. We will be able to read the first reports, I sure hope.

Just recieved mine today! Only had a short time to try it out.

First impressions: very nicely build machine! Looks and feels like a premium product! Mine is number #006 BTW.

  • An European power cord is supplied so you can start right away.
  • Only problem is I don't get output from the HDMI, but VGA does work. Maybe my TV doesn't support the resolution, or the HDMI version of the TV is too ancient. I looked in the documentation (https://gitlab.com/victor.trucco/Multicore/tree/master/OCM) but couldn't find information on a setting in soft- or hardware. BTW: the bigger dipswitches are great! You don't need a tool to change them :)
  • The included soundchips are also great, but overall volume (analog output because HDMI doesn't function for me yet) is low. Tested chips are PSG, SCC, MSX-Music, MSX-Audio and OPL3. All with VGMPlay of course ;)
  • And there are 2 interesting switches on the front. One is the reset, the other changes the picture to add scanlines.
  • The MicroSD card from my OCM worked immediately, as was expected.
  • In Victor's YouTube videos you can see him change the firmware on-the-fly to play PC-Engine games. I didn't find that feature yet...

Will try the other features in the next days. I would love to get the Wifi and HDMI to work! Great work Victor!
