Hi There!

I have created an Excel sheet that lets me design a new VDP Patern Table, and I can export all the DATA to a .TXT file.

My question is "how can I import this .TXT file into NLMSX (as a BASIC program), and how do I save from NLMSX to cassette so that I can load it into an actual MSX computer...?


P.S. My apologies if this has been asked a 100 times over, but I'm a newbie finding my way around the site....

if the text file has basic's lines in ASCII format (just pure text), a simple LOAD"file.txt" will do the trick, now, how to insert that file in the .dsk image that is loaded by the emulator is another thing.

If you want to save to cassette, you should use openMSX, AFAIK it's the only emulator that can save to actual WAV format, which can be loaded into a real MSX.
But, maybe you're better off buying a NoWind USB, so that you can a virtual disk drive on your MSX, which is actually using disk images from your PC Smile

(..) how to insert that file in the .dsk image that is loaded by the emulator is another thing.
Under Linux that's a piece of cake: you can 'loop' mount a disk image of your choice (for example a copy of an empty MSX disk) under some directory, and then you access it under that directory just like any other disk. Typically one of those jobs that are *really* easy using Linux Hannibal, but need purpose-written programs under Windows.
