New Zealand! That's awfully far away - but I love the country, been just once two years ago. I live in its perfect antipodes, Menorca (an island too, but way too small).

I'd like to know the details about them and some pics as well.

Interesting machines (mostly the Toshiba HX-30, the Hitachi and the Casio which you only mentioned in the subject!)! Would you like to help us by dumping the ROMs of them? I can give you some simple instructions.

By the way: why are you explicitly mentioning the sound chips of the machines?

I guess sound chip is an option, so it's kinda remark

(The reason I asked is that all MSX machines have the same sound chip... the AY-3-8910 or compatible...)

Anyway, what about my question? Would you like to help us by dumping the ROMs of some of these machines? I can give you some simple instructions.

(The reason I asked is that all MSX machines have the same sound chip... the AY-3-8910 or compatible...) are you sure? All MSX? MSX, not MSX2.

Anyway, what about my question? Would you like to help us by dumping the ROMs of some of these machines? I can give you some simple instructions. it depends, how much you will pay for that job

Like Manuel, I'm an (MSX) emu-dev guy too, interested as well in preservation of BIOS ROM dumps. Asking fellow MSX users to help us a bit with that is not rare, and we don't expect to pay money for it, just like we don't expect people to pay money for the emulators we've created. We pay and receive with gratitude instead. Smile

Your 1st question: yes, the main soundchip of MSX is AY-3-8910 or compatible clone by Yamaha.
