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 )
First time coding a line interrupt ( well at least this side of Y2K ) fun too see more colors than are allowed on the #MSX -- Now that I'm looking at it... could probably do with a smoother gradient in the subtitle as well. 🤔
✉️Mailman just brought a new game! It's not the best Track&Field 1 I've ever seen for the #MSX but it's good enough for me. Welcome to the collection!
Had to do some work on the back - will show before and after. Using the tape on the INSIDE of the box makes a big difference! 😅
Just received another #MSX Yie Ar Kung-Fu 2. The box is really nice, clean and sturdy! But the top of the cartridge label is wrinkled. Again.
What's up with the European cartridges for YAKF2? Do they ALL have problems with the label glue letting loose???
When buying anything in the 80's, it came with a decent manual. In fact there was a big chance it actually came with a wiring diagram as well. "Here's our product and, if it breaks in the future, here's how to fix it." -- Imagine that in 2021 🤯
From my #MSX monitor:
Cost me a bit more than I wanted to spend on it initially, but it was well worth it; The box is in top shape and... what a box design! I just love 忍者くん阿修羅の章 ! (look at me copying Japanese words from the web!) #MSX
I make games for a living! Other than that, I'm pretty much stuck in the 80's with my MSX computers.
