To run this MSX1 machine in blueMSX, you need
the complete config file with all the
specific roms. Check the Resource page of the
website and unzip the config file in the
Machines subdirectory of the emulator.
This machine has a tape interface ; you can
also add a diskdrive. On Japanese machines, switch key between Japanese and English characters is RightAlt.
The internal firmware is a Personal Databank;
data can be saved on cassette, disk or a Sony
HBI-55 cartridge. Note also that this Sony
computer exists in different international
versions, the name is followed by a letter :
D=German, F=French, S=Spanish, P=English.
You can add the HBI-55 cartridge by using the
Insert Special menu in the Files/Cartridge
Slot 1 menu or the Files/Cartridge Slot 2
menu. You can also use the Machine Editor in
the Tools menu and create a different machine
including this cartridge.
The firmware menu is slighly different when
the HBI-55 cartridge has been inserted.
Besides, you can use an option BASIC
+ DATA CARTRIDGE that allows to save
little BASIC programs on the cartridge and to
load / run them from the cartridge, with the
commands SAVE"CAT:" and LOAD"CAT:".
Remark about HB-501 : A computer
very similar to the HB-201 but without the
internal firmware (exception is the French
version); in stead of that, it comes with an
integrated cassette reader.
