Here's some text from the FM STereo PAK ROM:

FM STEREO PAK WAS DESIGNED IN JULY/AUGUST 1990**** 
ORIGINAL PROGRAMM, GRAPHICS AND SOUND BY THE JIFFY COORPORATION ***        
SOURCE DEVELOPED ON IBM SERVER WITH RISC PROCESSOR FROM SUN MICROSYSTEMS
ITH THE MSX EMULATOR V1.34        
YOUR LOVE IS LIKE SWEET CANDY YOUR FACE IS IN MY MEMORY AND WHEN I THINK OF YOU I FEEL IN HEAVEN
 AND IN HELL BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT WITH ME I LOVE YOU TILL THE END OF DAYS            
AN EMOTIONAL END TO AN EMOTIONAL PROGRAMM      
JIFFY INC. WAS FOUNDED 1990 IN (MY THOUGHTS)JAPAN, OOSAKA. 
GREETINGS TO MATSUSHITA, PANASONIC, ASCII, KAY NISHI, J.J., VOULWAMMES, C.C., M.B. with love from E.H.,

So, who are all these folks? Who wrote this? What's the idea?

ITH THE MSX EMULATOR V1.34

Who does know this MSX emulator ????
Probably a cross developement environment in that time.

So the text could be:
A) complete nonsense
B) partly from the original fm pac, partly added by the developer of the fm stereo pak.
Especially the 'greetings' sounds more from the pseudo-professional/ hobby demoscene.

E.H. could mean Emile(?) Hensen the person who developed the internal application of the fm stereo pak (if i'm correct, I think this is mentioned somewhere in the parallax nostalgia website)
C.C. : initials of parallax.
J.J. : Jan Janssen, the producer of the fm pack.

I guess in the "ITH THE MSX EMULATOR" the "W" in the beginning is missing
And also guess that "THE MSX EMULATOR" is just plain old fMSX running on SunOS on a SUN SPARC/Station...

Ow wait: fMSX is not *that* old, is it?

From the fMSX Website:
I started developing fMSX in 1993
So, indeed, it can't be fMSX...

About the emulator ... It could be the emulator developed by Philips when they have switched to PC.

Pat is closest to the mark Wink
And no guys, you shouldn't believe everything you read, this was not developed on an emulator. I bet E.H. would really enjoy reading this thread Smile

So, Jiffy Inc is a joke from E.H.?

Who is he talking about in the *love* part?

And who are VOULWAMMES, M.B., R.K., JABEL-AHMED, L.E.?

I'm getting curious here Smile
