I'd like to get restarted on programming for the MSX. Anyone know where I can download books from? Any suggestions on good books?

Btw, simple googling would help. Since this is copyrighted material you wouldn't get links in the forum (they will be moderated)

Sorry, I must have misunderstood. I thought there were books on this site as resources, my mistake.

We can't give you links, but we can give you some advice:

MSX1:
- The MSX Red Book, Avalon Software (1985)
- VDP Programmer's Guide, Texas Instrument (1984)

MSX2:
- MSX2 Technical Handbook, ASCII Corporation (1987)
- V9938 MSX-VIDEO Technicam Data Book: Programmer's Guide, ASCII Corporation (1985)

The MRC's wiki is also a good place to get information: https://www.msx.org/wiki/Category:Programming
