Hi all, I just wanted to introduce myself to the community. I recently acquired a Panasonic FS-A1WSX and a copy of Metal Gear. I am excited to delve into the MSX rabbit hole. The only msx experience I have had so far is using BlueMSX. I am in the USA can't wait to meet you all! Smile

I'm actually part of the openMSX team. The main programmer of blueMSX (dvik) also lives in California. There are quite a few US based MSX users (mostly immigrants from other countries though) but the last 8 year there has been an increase in US people interested... mainly due to Metal Gear.

I got a Philips nms-8220 (PAL) and a Panasonic A1-FX (NTSC) myself (with a few original games and a MFR SCC+ SD 512Kb MM)

Wow! This is really exciting to hear. I was a little hesitant to purchase an msx, but after watching some YouTube videos; the curiosity bug finally bit me. I have been looking into the MFR and will probably purchase one in the near future. Thank you for the warm welcome.

Hello from Japan!
I only got into the MSX about a year ago, so I can assure you there's lots of interesting things you can try out and learn with the MSX!

The WSX is a great bit of kit! Did you know it has a 6 mhz turbo mode? Does the floppy drive work OK on the one you have? Mine needed a new drive belt.

I won’t be sure that the floppy disk drive works until it actually gets here. It was sold as is. The wait is going to get to me. I feel like a kid at Christmas. Smile I actually purchased It from a seller in Japan. I knew about the turbo mode. I was doing my research and narrowed my choice down to the WSX. Wink
