I can only say

Still trying to find a nice MSX2 machine but they are so hard to find... ...locally in Southern CA for a decent price.

For me, it's different :

A little explanation : even when I play MSX1 games, I play them always on a MSX2, especially for the bright colors, so these games become MSX2 games Tongue

- which HW do you have ?
4) I have an msx tR =)

- which SW do you run ?
d) I *would* prefer new games (free or not) for tR.. but there isnt any Tongue

- which SW do you develop?
Option V? for all of them? Tongue

This is what counts for me: if the game can be made on MSX1, good. If it needs (or can have) more features (more colors, more sprites, turbo, etc) then MSX2, MSX2+ or tR.. I just like to explore all possibilities that MSX (1/2/2+/tR) offers me.

madcrow: I'm sorry but I disagree with you. In Spain MSX1 was the most extended generation but MSX2 was also well known and quite popular. A lot of MSX2 games were available here. Were all these MSX2 games sold in your country? Smile

  • Super Tritorn
  • Andorogynus
  • Deep Forest
  • Scramble Formation
  • Bastard
  • Garyvo King
  • Testament
  • Zanac-Ex
  • Gambare Goemon
  • King Kong 2
  • Usas
  • Firebird
  • Vampire Killer
  • Metal Gear
  • Contra
  • Arkanoid 2
  • Super Rambo Special
  • Rastan Saga
  • Ikari Warriors
  • Darwin 4078
  • XYZ
  • Hole in One Special
  • Hydlide
  • Kinnectic Connection
  • Red Lights of Amsterdam
  • World Golf
  • Chopper 2
  • Laydock
  • Los Pasajeros del Viento/Les Passagers du Vent
  • Amazonas
  • Chess (Philips)
  • Livingstone Supongo
  • Goody
  • Perry Mason
  • Nueve Prríncipes en Amber
  • La Isla del Tesoro
  • L'Affaire
  • Cita con Rama
  • Aerobic
  • The Last Mission
  • Ninja Kun
  • Bubble Bobble
  • Sa-Zi-Ri

Can someone confirm if all the titles in this list were sold in Spain? I only have doubts with Gambare Goemon, King Kong II, Sa-Zi-Ri and Amazonas. And the list is only for games distributed by big importers. Other games arrived thanks to small importers (Metal Gear 2, Space Manbow, SD Snatcher and others).

And we didn't need 'MSX1 to MSX2 upgrade kits' because we could buy MSX2 computers from Sony, Philips and Mitsubishi.

No MSX software was ever sold in USSR (except educational programs that Ministry Of Education have bought from developers and gave for free to schools and universities), noone ever saw game cartridge (!), but everybody played King's Valley and even special Vampire Killer version sent to student's computers from the teacher's station via classroom network.

Imagine the situation - 99.9% of software was illegal !

To be more precise, there was no such thing as "software import".

As for hardware, from my experience MSX2 was more widespread than MSX1, but I can't find the numbers. At least that was the situation in various cities and regions across USSR I visited while participating in programming olympiads and summer programming schools in 1988-1991.
