For those who can't know enough about this fantastic new computer from Spain, this thread should serve. Here you can ask questions and share your knowledge.

Here is my question:
I really liked this project from the beginning and as so many others I can't wait to get my hands on this hardware.
As a photographer I would like to see pictures from the real thing, are there any to share here?

Yes, of course .. I can show you the pictures of the current prototype. Please, IT IS A PROTOTYPE Smile ... it has been done with 3D Printing, no tampography details and the keyboard is not using the final layout setting but it is the computer what we have been created the last videos. Currently, we are working in the next iteration of the prototype. Tomorrow we will receive the PCB's assembled (I will share with you pictures)

OK, then.
Here go a couple of questions:

If the MSX Turbo R is "implemented" 100% then, How the ren-sha key is emulated?
There is no sliding knob in the keyboad. Maybe emulated with ALT+numbers or cursor up/down?

Another question: If the keyboard is 100% MSX compatible or can be connected to it then, will it be possible to buy a case with keyboard included, so you can replace a broken one or mount inside the case whatever you like?

1) REN-SHA currently is not emulated ... it needs to be implemented and your proposal or similar it seems ok. I will add to the TODO list. Thank you.
2) Keyboard is not MSX compatible. It is a compatible USB keyboard.
3) You can replace any piece if it has been broken. Case or Keyboard or PCB or PSU.
Have I asked your questions?

Thanks @msxvr for the nice pictures.
@raymond MIDI could be integrated by a Tada-Midi connection, available in any MSX computer through the printer port. Victor is using the joystick port in the SM-X, what would be a-ok for me.

MIDI
Yes, low level MIDI interface is implemented (in/out).
TR MIDI out is working but I need to check more MIDI devices to be sure that all is working fine.
TR MIDI in is not implemented yet.

Finally some pictures and info that give more insight. Thank you msxvr!

Let me rephrase my other questions here, you might have missed them in the newsposting.

On which API is the emulator running?
Why is there a 12v 10A psu?
How do the vrdos and vrbasic books and service manuals look like? Are they finished?
How does the packaging looks like? Is it finished?
Can we get images and videos of the internal hardware? I believe tomorrow this will happen Smile
Is all the promised software in release candidate phase?

Thank you for your answers, you are doing an amazing job. Much respect!!

Which four slots are those at the top?
Does the keyboard succeed the "Gradius test"? (don't know who came up with the name, but it about being able to fly to top left and being able to shoot. It's said that many keyboards fail this test).

That only happens on keyboards without anti-ghosting. In mechanical keyboards I think it doesn't happen. But maybe the developer can confirm It Smile
