D-Tail, you can of course take your ST to the MRC booth. Plenty of space over there Wink

Indeed. I have many EVA-files up and running on my MSX config. It's pretty spectacular, viewing a converted AVI-movie on your MSX in a reasonable resolution and sync sound!

Just wondering: what video modes does that EVA player use (on both V9938 and V9990)?

Sound is put through the Y8950 (MSX Audio), COVOX or Turbo R PCM. AFAIK it's 15.75 kHz mono sound. Framerate can be 10 or 12FPS (depends on conversion mode (see the -FPS12 Wink)). Resolution is 128x106 (exactly 1/4 of a normal screen mode). If you want to keep aspect ratio, you might as well want to convert to 128x96. A picture of the COVOX is here:

I took it from some internet site, but I cannot recall which :P

Furthermore, I've never actually managed to get the V9990 version working in my config, alas. It seems that program has problems reading from CD-ROM, while the V9958 hasn't...?

Oh, and Aurora, V9938 cannot be used, unless you want to have a totally wrecked view on the video Wink.

snout, thanks for the space offer on Bussum 2K4 Smile I really appreciate it Big smile. So, legacy, you'll have your EVA show nonetheless...

Now for burning some CDs with EVA movies on them. Tongue

COVOX is also known in the MSX scene (due to MCM) as SIMPL.
I actually have a MCWF SIMPL interface, which I think I used euuhh, once...

Back to main topic Smile
Ok, now I have to find avi to eva converter which runs on PC of course. But, then, how can I put the produced huge EVA file to my MSX's hard disk? Shall I install it on PC? and what will happen to the partitions in it?
Thanks
