MMC/SD cardreader for MSX?

by snout on 09-01-2003, 11:01
Topic: Hardware

ESE's Tsujikawa, who has been working on the one-chip design for MSX Association used his holidays to create a simple MMC cardreader for MSX. Also, experiments for using SD have succeeded.The current version connects to the joystick port of the MSX, making it a quite slow solution (about 1KB/s).

It's been a long while since we reported about the Snatcher translation projects. Most MSX users will know the fabulous MSX Action RPG SD-Snatcher. SD-Snatcher was released on MSX only, and based on the game Snatcher. Which was more or less a text-adventure. Unlike SD-Snatcher, Snatcher was released on many other platforms than MSX. The MSX version had not yet been translated to English.

First of all, we want to thank you all for massively using our forum and reaction system. However, because of this (more than 500 posts since the launch of the new site) we feel that we have to put some rules online:The MSX Resource Center has little rules. We like it that way. Moderation will be done only when really needed, using common sense as our guidelines.
