Slot Configuration

In this panel you can configure the core slot layout. The slot layout determines how you can map ROM machines into memory.

     Board   Specifies the type of computer you want to emulate.
You can choose between 11 different types (the ColecoAdam type is not yet implemented).

The MSX type is for a "normal" MSX1 computer.

The other MSX types refer to MSX engines used generally in the MSX2, MSX2+ and Turbo-R machines :
- the T9769B is used in all Panasonic MSX2+ machines
- the T9769C is used in the MSXturboR machines
- most of the MSX2 computers use the S-3527 or the S-1985.
- Forte II is only for the Brazilian arcade machine with the Knightmare game

The VDP timing is different from one MSX engine to another and the PSG sound is different from the PSG on the MSX1 machines, as they include the Yamaha YM2149 chip instead of the General Instruments AY-3-8910 chip.

SVI is a system that is very close to the MSX1 system and concerns the Spectravideo SVI-318 and SVI-328 machines.

ColecoVision and SG-1000 are consoles that are very close to the MSX1 system, it's also the case of the SC-3000 and SF-7000 computers.
     Slot Layout   Specifies whether the four slots in the machine shall be subslotted or not.
     External Slots   Specifies the slot where external slots will be mapped.
The external slots are usually used for game cartridges and are inserted in the Cartridge menu.
If the selected slot is subslotted, the subslot also needs to be defined.
