Changes from RuMSX
V0.30 to V0.31
RUMSXEMU.ZIP (*updated*) has been changed and must be downloaded.
RUMSXLNG.ZIP (*updated*) has been changed and need to be downloaded for localization-support.
RUMSXLNX.ZIP (*updated*) contains partially localized versions of RuMSX
(french+russian). In contrast to RUMSXLNG.ZIP the translation is not completed. So these resources are partially english. This file is NOT part of the InstallShield-version.
RUMSXHLP.ZIP (*updated*) has been changed and must be downloaded (it contains RuMSX
RUMSXUNI.ZIP (*updated*) contains a trial-version of the RuMSX
V0.31 unicode build (MSXW.EXE), which supports world-wide character sets in the single file. This file is NOT part of the InstallShield-version.
Since V0.29 RuMSX
supports a "My MSX
" folder. This feature is disabled by default and has to be enabled by separate tools!
Added SCSI-Support for the WD33C93A controller, which enables use of HSH and NOVAXIS ROMs with harddisk-images (with NOVAXIS CD-ROM ISO-images can be accessed too)
Support for multiple Disk-ROMs added (now up to 8 floppy-drives can be used, in theory)
Screen 8 colors have been fixed, display is now much brighter (4 grey tones are available too)
SaveState files with more than 1 ROM-cartridge have been improperly saved and loaded.
Temporarily fixed potential crashes in highres-modes when the Adjust-register uses excessive values. The adjust-register Y value is ignored for now. (as result the NOVAXIS NFDISK-utility does no longer crash if running in high-resolution mode)
HtmlHelp updated (V0.30 did unfortunately not contain the described help update). Added SCREEN 9 information.
Added extensions to the MSX-Configuration dialog (changed TR-DefaultConfig, implemented missing features, ...)
Added read-only support for the personal folder "My MSXMSX
configurations" (reads *.CFG and explicitly defined ROMs from here)
IMPORTANT: the "My MSX
" folder must be enabled for this!
MSXDOS1 boot-sector has been slightly modified (removed random bytes to get compact code+data)
Updated MSX-locale and initial VDP-frequency of the CBIOS configurations according to the design-specifications.
Made a few improvements in ROM-type detection
Language selection now allows to include value-formatting too
Added option to decrease CPU-load while running at same speed. Added "inactive mode" option in case RuMSX
is running in background.
Added experimental emulation of Epson printers, "Print-X-press" is at least partially working now.
Fixed a bug in the "Generic 8KB ROM mapper", which prevented Parodius from being played until the end (copyprotection caused random stop at the last end-monster)
ROMSCCPLUS.TXT added. This file describes the "SCC+ dummy" ROM-image format and handling.
Some more minor updates...
