RegionSwap lets you play both regional versions of your original cartridges. INT<->JP
Use this tool with a MegaFlashRom, a real #MSX and a region sensitive cartridge.

Disclaimer: I made this tool for myself. And even though it works for me, it's NOT been tested extensively. Use at your own risk! 🔥
Turned this boring old cassette carrier into an official, fully licensed and branded Konami #MSX cartridge holder. By slapping a sticker on it. 😜
For those coding #MSX assembly and wanting to use the LINE command of the V9938 - But DON'T want to wrap their brains around hypotenuse, long and short triangle sides and transfer direction flags... here's the version for dummies ( like me ).
Definitely full-on collecting the Japanese versions of the Konami games too now. Collecting for #MSX is dangerous. So many games! So many editions!
A trunk trade and a parcel pickup today got me three new #MSX Sony games. Especially happy with Choplifter! Yay!
"It's going to take all the driving skill" -- And also all the cringe skills when you chunkily jump from side to side and crash into cars you can't see coming from behind the hills. Still, the box is great and it's a classic. Really wanted Coaster Race in my #MSX collection!
Fancy workflow for #MSX development!
* Run/F5 from Notepad++ compiles the ROM and uploads it to my FTP server
* openMSX gets executed automatically with the game ROM (top left)
* The _real_ MSX with GR8NET (top right) a batch file can download the ROM from FTP and play it!
Came across this photo of my Philips VG8010. That's got to be one of the best looking #MSX computers. ( Although definitely not "the best" in any other aspect )
That red to white -via yellow- gradient is as smooth as I could do. Two lines share the same color simply because there's only 3 bit per RGB channel and this is as smooth as it gets. I ran out of colors! 😅
I make games for a living! Other than that, I'm pretty much stuck in the 80's with my MSX computers.
