Al Alamiah AX-350 and AX-370

To run these MSX2 machines in blueMSX, you need the complete config files with all the specific roms. Check the Resource page of the blueMSX website and unzip the config files in the Machines subdirectory of the emulator.

These machine have a tape interface and a diskdrive. Switch key between Arabic and English characters is RightAlt. A mouse is required to use the Painter.

The AX-370 is very similar to the AX-350, but it is based on a Sanyo MSX2+ machine, especially for the drive, instead of a Yamaha MSX2 machine and the MSX2 VDP is replaced by the MSX2+ VDP (the BIOS remains a MSX2 BIOS).

These computers comes with an integrated firmware. You can skip it and use MSX-BASIC without Arabic extensions by pressing LeftCTRL when booting.

From MSX-BASIC, you can go back to the firmware menu by typing CALL MENU, the word processor by typing CALL SWP, the Painter by typing CALL PAINT and the calendar by typing CALL CALENDAR.

  From this intro screen, you know directly that this computer is an Arabic machine.
  Without any game in a cartridge slot or the diskdrive, you come on this firmware menu :

1 - Word Processor
2 - The Painter
3 - Calendar
4 - MSX2-Sakhr BASIC
Word Processor - Arabic version   Word Processor - English version
The Painter - Arabic version   Calendar
