This is becoming a great thread (to mankind Tongue ), let's keep it up everyone! I miss the copying of discs. When one went wrong, because u were hastly finishing the game or musicdisc, and then the entire batch went wrong, so u had about 10 discs copied when someone notices the disc is not copied right (c) Big smileDD great fun and very frustrating

Fun?

Remember the whole Ducktales batch got screwed. And everyone sent their copy back and we promised to enclose the stamps needed to send the disk back to us... That meant: Fl. 3,20 per disk lost plus a lot of work... :/

We had something similar with Pixess, there were 2 unsolvable stages somewhere in world 8 I think... but we distributed a patch disk to everyone who bought it in stead of having everyone send us their copies Smile (at least i think we did) Smile

Hearing SCC music for the very first time...

Ah!!! Yes! I know that from when I went to Arnold (ex-Moonsoft)! I heard Salamander SCC and I was completely flabbergasted. I totally forgot to tell my mum was in hospital.

Hi everybody!

I remember the day I got my first MSX1... I was about 11 years old, and back then at school we had computerlessons. They used an Apple (which one? I dunno, but it had a 5 1/4 inch diskdrive Smile Anyway, I really enjoyed those classes. It was all about Logo! (you know turtle, racing across the screen drawing stuff with penup (pu) and pendown (pd) en so forth. Anyway, after whining my dad's head off I finally got a computer. It was an Philips VG-8010... Man, what a machine. And my dad bought a game straight away with it: Zaxxon! Yes, I guess it was one of the early moments of MSX-existance Smile Anyway, I now feel sorry for myself that I made my father sell it to buy a Sony Hit-Bit 75P. Simply because it had 64K. Smile Ok, back... It was school that day, and my dad picked me up from school (which was unusual) en told me to look under the blanket on the backseat of the car..... SURPRISE!! ... Man, I was in heaven! Since then I was hooked on computers in general. And also from that moment on I still carry the MSX in my heart! Albeit passive mostly, but now I still got my NMS8245 8)

MSX's I had:

  • Philips VG-8010 (MSX1)
  • Sony Hit-Bit 75P (MSX1)
  • Philips VG-8235 (MSX2)
  • Philips NMS-8245 (MSX2) (floppy is kinda bad, but the rest still works 100%, nothing modified on this machine)

Mmmmm... MSX... All I can say, I wish I could go back into time... No, not via emus (which I do now on my PC), but truly back into time. Smile I would buy all games and apps, just for my collection Smile

Oh, and the first time I heard something different on the msx than the standard psg, was the Philips Music Module... I even had the keyboard that could be bought with it. Wow... I spend mooooonths with it.

Visit my site for a picture of the NMS8245 and some games I found that were not sold with the previous MSX's. I speak English (as far I manage... LOL! ) and Dutch, so mail me if you have some software and/or hardware that you want to get rid of. ;)

The day my brother bought his VG8235, it was freezing outside. I didn't know he had one, but I arrived home with almost frozen fingers. They immediately got back to normal temperatures when I saw the box in the kitchen.

Talking about going back in time, I wish I hadn't sold so much original games... I wish I hadn't sold my 8250 at that ridiculously low, haggled down price... Those bastards.

funny to see how many people remember the first day they heard a new soundcard like SCC, FM-PAC or Muziekmodule. Back in those days, a computer making such sounds was truly amazing. I remember I had the same feeling with my first synthesizer (the Roland JV-30), which is quite a laugh right now (well... it's decent GM/GS I guess ;P) but sounded truly amazing to me back then. Especially when connected to the MSX! Smile
