Nice to see an Australian MSXer Smile. I guess they weren’t common around there? Or you used to live in the UK?

Yes, I lived in UK for about 15 Years, from late 1984 to mid 2000.
I was very lucky to be in UK during the Computer Wars Era, and the Computer Games Crash Era, so it was all a Buzz at School for years up to 1986.
Sold all my MSX Stuff when i returned to Australia, only Kept my AMIGA Gear.
Have since collected some MSX Goodies, allong with many other Commodore related items.
The Wifee thinks Im a Bit Mad, but I make a bit of Money out of my Computer Repairs. Wink

Probably Antarctic Adventure, out of a diskette which also contained Pitfall 2 and Funky Mouse. (and 3 others that simply never worked, probably bad rip/hack/reconversion from a tape hacked cartridge-ripped game... supplied with even worse loaders... very common those days)

It was on my cousin's Expert DD Plus with green monitor, some Christmas between 1988 and 1990 at grandma's house. This same MSX later become my first working computer ever, two years later when i borrowed it from him.

okay then I have just one question. Did you get this MSX your grandmother at Christmas. For my MSX I received from an employee of my father.

Well... almost that: My cousin got that MSX from his parents at Christmas, and we (he, 2 of his 3 sisters, 2 of the 3 cousins we have in common, my brother and I) spent the holliday playing those 3 games, on a not-so-well-organized-queue. Then I borrowed it from him years later.

I already had a little contact with MSX at that time, as my father's company had another MSX (a Sharp/Epcom Hotbit) controlling an custom-made light panel (used as a "message box", displaying animated messages - and redefined character graphics - on a 24-8x8-characters-wide giant panel, using those small light bulbs you found on small flashlights at that time). We took the MSX home and saw that I had talent with "that thing" (drawing the redefined characters and putting them togheter on (not so) simple line-animations) and kept asking me to do that things, but he never had the money to buy a MSX to be our home computer. And since it was a work-computer, no games allowed either. That's why I had to borrow my cousin's Expert years later. Luckly I still managed some pals to exchange disks and collect some great games... But I really think Antarctic Adventure was the first. If won't, Pitfall 2.

My first MSX was a second hand Philips VG8020 with a small black and white TV. It came with Nemesis 2 on cartridge and a whole bunch of tapes. I think I tried out the cartridge first, so Nemesis 2 might very well be my first MSX game. I remember playing Who Dares Wins II, Auf Wiedersehen Monty and Jack the Nipper in Coconut Capers (which I just called Jack the Nipper, because I didn't know it was a sequel) a lot back then, when I got it. My sister liked Circus Charlie best. She was really good at it. :)

My first MSX was the Philips VG-8010 with a green color TV without sound, bought in Portugal in 1985 by my father. I was 8 years old.
It came with Athletic Land and Monkey Academy game cartridges, 2 manuals: User's Manual and Reference Manual and 2 tapes with varios basic programs.
Good times of childhood!
