Hello all !

I have a NMS8250 and I want to play Illusion city, I know that the english translation of this game is playable on a MSX2, but only when having 7mhz..
I really would like to play this game, so where do I get 7mhz?
Is the a (dutch) company that still sells it? or is there a cardridge that does al the "hocuspocus"?
Yep, I can play it on Bleumsx emulator, but I'd like to do my 8250 do all the hard work Smile (you know what they say.. when you're getting old, you need to keep in shape!)

Thanks all !

There're some hardware people around who fix 'n sell stuff, one of 'em being Repair-Bas. You might wanna try him..

7 MHz means your CPU will be replaced with a faster one and a circuit will be added to be able to switch between 3.5 and 7 MHz. You cannot put such things in a cartridge... It requires an operation on your MSX.

??? Play Illusion City on a 8250 ???
I don't think it is going to work, even with a 7MHz switch.
Afaik this game is turbo R only.

shaiwa: of course Moniz means the English [unfinished Sad] translation by Adriano Da Cunha and others. Moniz: I think I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I found the game not at all playable on 7MHz. Of course, on a turboR everything runs smoothly. Moreover, I think 7MHz kits are harder to find than a turboR, so your best shot would be watching eBay Wink

Hmmmm... to bad, thanx for all the replies though!
Yep, the version I was talking about is the unfinished version, I hope someone will do the rest someday..
I guess I have to play this one on the emulator then Crying

Is there any use for that 7MHz switch?
Got 8250 with 7MHz standing here but never used the switch.

if you are programmer basic or machine code 7mhz is faster for list program or compile
if you are a very good player and a little crazy try shoot them up games in 7mhz mode ;-)
