As for me screenshots have some value. I hope there should be a few with interesting gameplay as well. And there are always a warm feeling to see that there were non-indusry-commercial program being written Smile So please don't hesitate to release what you decided to release Smile

Side note: I lost my MSX stuff many yeas ago (i've had some 15 years of non-MSX-ing... sad but true) - floppy is very unreliable media. Now while writing this comment i feel a little bit of regret. I had two playable (hopefully) games and a few non-playable, and one unfinished project in asm i'd really like to have a look at (maybe just to realize how hilarious is the code of 16-17 y.o. guy who were you, who knows Big smile ). But yes, there are no way to get'em back until someone invents a time-travelling soon Cool

I know your pain, not that I made any good programs but it's still a bit of a shame that everything got lost.

Do you still have the disks or did you throw them away or reformat them?

No, they were unreadable by pc drive (i even tried direct device read under freebsd via dd command). That was in 1999 or so and i was very stupid. I thrown them away Sad

Great project. Just one suggestion... well you please deliver my maximum respect to you great father and ask him to visit us here as our guest and be one of the members. I think he would spend great times here remembering his childhood and we could benifit frim his experience. Of course he might have forgotten a lot about MSX but at least it would be a great memory excersize for him trying to remember old stuff and we could help him remember and learn new things then. Please try to convince him to join us especually that he's now retired and therefore has some boring times which he can kill by joining us.

Heh, my dad isn't going anywhere, I'm afraid. His Parkinson's disease has made him too weak to travel anywhere. I will send your regards, however. Thanks. Smile

I think he meant that your dad should visit these boards over here, not travelling around world. Wink

Heheh, oops. I misread the whole "guest" bit. Anyway, I doubt my dad will register here. I don't think his English is suffient enough + his ability to use computers has decreased greatly over the years (he's 66 now).

Tokamoka was indeed quite a well known MSX character in Finland back in those days. He was quite a productive, he had hardware skills, he did keep contact with other users and was one of the quite few people who imported MSX2 for their own use already when it was new. (There was newer MSX2 reseller for consumer customers in Finland) Getting BASIC listing published in Mikrobitti-magazine was also kind of "big thing" as they had pretty high standards, but they also paid out some small money rewards for best published programs. Mikrobitti was THE computer magazine in Finland already 30+ years ago and it is still going strong although they contain pretty rarely any MSX related articles anymore. Smile

I know that many of those games you are talking about are more like different development versions or game levels... You know... Almost same, but name has been changed and game logic may be changed a bit. Sometimes it may be same game but for two players or so... I think they should be published, but I would maybe categorize similar ones under same menu item that would bring you to screen that has little description of each variant you can select.
