- Why there were so few improvements on the MSX2+, even 3 years after the previous generation? The MSX1->MSX2 was a huge improvement

IMHO, i think the msx2/msx2+ gens were intended to be only 1 generation. I suspect also that the V9938 is the V9958 stripped down from some features (like h. scroll regs, wait for turbo cpus) that, at the time of the release, not fully working on the vdp prototypes. So, basically:

msx2: is basically a preview- alpha version of the intended msx2. they cannot wait more....
msx2+: is the intended,true msx2, maybe they have added some other nice things.

Correct, MSX2+ (with build in FM-Pac) would be the true intented MSX.

Awesome! We're getting very close now. It's looking like this will actually happen now. : ) I was getting a bit worried earlier around Day 15 especially... Just a little more to go!

I went with the £40 pledge. (I don't care too much for physical DVDs lying around in my house, maybe offering a digital download of the DVD would have changed my mind though)

I'm wondering how many people here actually contributed to this kickstarter because it was mentioned here....
Maybe this could be the next topic for the frontpage poll ?

Thank you all for your support! We made it! I still haven't heard from Nishi-san, but we do have 2 months still to arrange something. However, I did confirm with Toshinari Oka, who is on board. He was main programmer on the first Parodius, which started on MSX, so I'd like to talk about that, among other things.

Erm... I don't think it will. The spoken Japanese will be followed by the spoken English on my interpreters though.

It all depends. I intend to hire a video editor. Either he, or someone else, would need to hand type every line of dialogue and sync it to the audio. It's a big task.
