No help files and supports, sorry. Simply press keys KkQk...Pp...spacebar to put pieces on board. MSX had solid spacebar and cursor keys designed for human fingers, so, use them much.
 *download BlueMSX at first, set max.emulation speed, then download image and attach as disk. This emulator provides screenshots (for diagrams) and video recording (for Youtubes), but sometimes this lags.
