We had some small discussions about the MSX Revival in several forum threads and reactions already. It seems like a smart idea to start its own thread.

In 2 days, the MSX Revival starts in Japan with the release of MSX Magazine 2003, which features the official MSX Emulator MSXPLAYer. Already, more than 5000 copies are sold, but MSX Association is not licensed to release the MSXPLAYer abroad (thanks to Microsoft). This means the MSX Revival will start in Japan. Although the MSX Magazine 2003 has a small English section it is not clear what the future will bring for the MSX users outside of Japan. We'd like to know what you think about all this.

It's quite simple. Nishi said they valued the 'overseas' MSX'ers very much. And in fact, when he visited Holland at Tilburg 2001, about 20 prominent dutch MSX'ers were invited to a special meeting the day after the fair. At that meeting it became clear the japanese value our (= non-japanese MSX'ers) opinion very much.

If we tell our wishes, opinions and expectations here, I'm sure it will get to japan.

MSX is a world-standard and the MSX Revival concerns us all, so let's not stand by the side-lines, but contribute to it!

Well, yes, GuvyeR800, you're right, but erhm.....The 'prominent msx-ers' have had a deep discussion about their wishes and thoughts. There is a summary been made of this discussion and it's being mailed to the Japanese MSX Association. We have never heard a thing on it anymore.....

Communication with Japan is and always has been a problem for foreigners. This is not only an MSX related problem. As far as I know, the person who was appointed to translate the monthly reports of the European revival discussion was too busy to do that much translation in his spare time.

I don't mind you being negative, but I do mind you basing your opinion on things you know nothing or little about. The translator was NOT hired by ASCII or MSX Association, but volunteered to translate. Unfortunately he did not have enough time to do so.

I for one think it's completely normal that a product like MSX Magazine 2003 is released in one country/region at a time. Creating translation, distributing, marketing etc. etc. etc. are all things that take a lot of time, and cost a lot of money. I can assure you that this time, the 'big' japanese companies are having (little) contacts with European MSX Users.

o.O

Indeed, very sad... YOU!!!

What the fsck is your problem?!

Is your new mission in life to be excessively negative about anything and everything? Because it certainly seems that way.

I wouldn't mind if there was something to be negative about, but the truth is, there's just GOOD NEWS here!

Did you ever stop to think about how YOUR attitude may affect others? Over the past few months I've seen you deliberately trying to stop people from having fun with their MSX a number of times on this site.

So go see a shrink or something, get your act together and remember this: if you don't have anything nice to say, please shut the fsck up! Evil

The newspost on MSX Associaton gives a bit more clarity. MSX Association is mainly running on volunteers. As for Mark sounding negative.. uhm.. try contributing a bit more than "just what i thought.... typical..", "lame translator. Is that supposed to happen in a big-size company like ASCII??? Tss" or "just sad" to this topic. It's good to have criticism, but try to base it on facts, use arguments and a bit more text to explain how you think about the current state of the revival and why. In this thread it was quite hard not to misunderstand you Wink
