Is Altera's DE1 inspired by the OCM? Tongue

Absolutely! And MSX is inspired my Metal Gear.

The design of the OCM is indeed free. Anybody who wishes to can produce one and even sell it. Though, you can't sell one with an image of the MSX-ROMS included because the MSX-ROMS are not free. You will have to negotiate a license with the current license holders if you want to produce and sell an OCM that comes with an image of the MSX-ROMS bundled in the package.

As spl pointed out the Altera DE1 board might be an alternative, but the OCM does have cartridge slots, an enclosed case and better SW support from ESE and the MSX community.

Caro developed a DIY extension for DE1. It adds two slots and two joystick ports, making DE1 fully functional MSX.

From what I know, Caro is going to buy some cartridges in order to finalize development of the slots extension.
Just be patient.
If you can't - contact him directly.

Uhm, imo caro creates new designs and publishes them. He doesn't normally build any hardware for sale.

I found the link to DE1 MSX expansion: click here

Nice. But is there someone willing to build that? I 'm willing to at least buy one Wink I dont have the skills to build the actual hardware for it. But that together with the DE1 would be the same as an OCM and without the extension the DE1 can be used for other stuff.
