Heya. Just bought my first ever MSX… a Toshiba HX-10. WHOOP WHOOP!

Now I’m a Speccy fan-boy at heart, but certainly not adverse to trying out other machines. I’m very fond of my Oric Atmos, Dragon 32, BBC, Atari XE, etc… but this machine has always remained a mystery to me. What exactly is it? Sooo, today I loaded my first ever game (which took ages to figure out as it was really fussy as to what sort of audio cable it wanted) and I must say, after a bit of effort... I’m very much impressed!

I played Le Mans and Finders Keepers for half an hour or more. Love it. Here’s to collecting for a whole new machine! Smile

Welcome! I also support the suggestion to play some of the Konami games. The Speccy ports on the MSX is usually inferior to the original, while the Konami games on the MSX is a lot better than the Speccy versions.

Gosh, excellent... Thank you. I'll definitely have a go at all the suggestions. I'm very much into real-media rather than emulation, so I'll keep a general look-out for Konami stuff on the, 'Bay of E.'

Best MSX1 game in my humble opinion: The Maze of Galious.
