Surprising position of Alpharoid and Donkey Kong!

Alpharoid is probably so high in the list, due to the fact the games are sorted alphabeticly.
As for Donkey Kong, they funny thing is that it's actually the Colleco version converted to MSX Smile

I have always wondered how these numbers correspond to the active MSX user base. Also, for a new game on cartridge, how many people are potential buyers, 50, 100 ?
In any case thank you for maintaining the site. As the number of games grow you'll probably need to implement some sort of searchable database. Ever considered joining forces with www.msxgamesworld.com ?

Same here Smile I am also quite curious to the "active" number of MSX-ers. I was surprised to see that the first batch of MSXVR is already close to 500 units, as I expect only a small percentage would buy such a system. But also: How many people buy games these days. Maybe some developers can tell us how many units get sold of recent hardware? 10? 50? 100? 250? I have no clue at al.. my guesss would be 20-50, but I could be completely wrong.

msxgamesworld already offer the possibility to play & download almost every game. So there wouldn't be much to gain for that site. We also server a different purpose: On my main site, you can easily find/browse the most popular MSX titles and play them with a click of a button. msxgamesworld is a bit more similar to generation-msx. But I think it's a bit to much work to quickly play a game on that website.
Also: I don't plan to add many more games to file-hunter.com. You'll find the most popular MSX games there. I also have some thematic parts like homebrew/arabic & msxdev, of which msxdev & homebrew will probably grow in the future, but also no with huge numbers.
The site has grown a bit more then I expected Smile I never expected that so much people would use it for a quick shot of nostalgia Smile

I am also curious to the amount of real cartridges sold in the past (for example how many Metal Gear, Usas, Vampire Killer (MSX versions) were sold. But also for new games;
Deva are probably about 132 pieces... Wink

I am very glad that tfh offers this service and I think that this gives a realistic picture of the size of our community. Especially the MSXdev section shows how many users are interested in current processes. Of course there are also duplicates, but not all gamers call them. I have talked openly with few developers in the last years, no cartridges sold by them came close to these numbers.

Indeed, tfh's wbsite is a fantastic service, thanks a lot for that! It's amazing to be able to just put a link in our game's websites saying something like "play directly in your browser here".

As for cartridges sold I can tell you about mine. Matra does batches of 25 or 50 most of the times. If the game is popular, then he does another batch. My games have sold between 50 - 100 each game. But I know that some of the "big productions" (Sword of Ianna, Brunilda, etc.) have reached much higher numbers. I forget which one of those, but I remember reading that one of them had sold more than 200 cartridges (but I'm speaking from memory on this last point, so, I might be wrong).
