Is it possible to transfer MSX games from your PC to the real thing and play it ?

Is it possible that people start reading the FAQ? (http://faq.msxnet.org/ )

Don't be rude! But yes, the faq ofcourse is a good place to find information on anything MSX. However, feel free to post any questions on MSX that are not related to illegal game copies on these forums. It is, by the way, possible to copy games that you have on your PC to your MSX. I'll assume we are talking about freeware games, and in that case you would open the disk image with a program like diskmanager and choose the 'Write to disk' option from the file manager. In order to play ROM files you usually need additional hardware for it to work. But, since I don't know many freeware ROM I will just leave it at that... Good luck...

Since when is it MRC policy that it's forbidden to ask illegal game copies related questions?

You're being a tightass, which is worse than the small amount of rudeness you accuse manuel of...

Any question in here seems a good reason for manuel to promote the FAQ Tongue and just like those commercials about borrowing money we have here in .nl the last years it's becoming annoying every now and then. But that's just manuel's second nature. Smile

You can use a HD floppy and format it as a DD floppy in your MSX and use it without problems.
If you want to use the DD formatted HD floppy in your PC (to copy something to it) you have to put some tape over the hole on the lower right side of the HD disk (opposite to the write-protect switch).

And you can also load ROM files in your MSX using WAVeR, a tool that converts MSX ROMs to WAV files to be loaded using the cassette entry of the MSX.

Have a look, http://www.robsy.net

And if you want MSX freeware ROMs, you will find some of them there.
