Re: MAME Emulation

I know that there is a chance you will be adding support for the the V9958 on the Dragons (using the Wordpak2+ module) Once we have the MPI, we could install the FDC, WP2+ and PSG to get a powerful Dragon-MSX2+ computer. The Wordpak2+ is already in my development build, but not quite ready for rele...

I can wait as much as needed.

Re: MAME Emulation

just to verify everything is ok, I converted a binary file to a cas file and loaded it

That's really great!
Good job!

with a Drivewire server that runs in the same PC? Maybe it is already possible ...
TCPClientPort 65503
TCPServerPort 65504
Any ideas about that alternative to disks?
thanks beforehand
