If you do manage to lay your hands on any VHD software, please help us out with some product pictures and/or screenshots to add to GenMSX where missing.

I just saw a video about VHD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCWLaAwr3sM It even mentions MSX :)

Hi Manuel,

JVC Victor HC-90 with HD-9500 VHD player. It is like Pioneer Palcom.

So, what was it again? Is the software on a separate tape/disk? Or is it also on the VHD itself, like the Palcom system?

Hello Manuel, are both ways. Some games require a cassette or disk + VHD and other games only the VHD that already contains the contents of the tape inside it, in this case it resembles the palcom system. Regards

Can you make a list of which games require what?

I'm currently aware of the following VHD games, but I don't know whether they have separate or encoded programs:

  • Highway Star (unreleased?)
  • VIA-1: VROOM - Motorcycle Race
  • VIA-2: The Players Club
  • VIA-3: Alice in Chemical Reaction: Alice's Chemical Laboratory
  • VIA-5: Star Arthur Densetsu; Wakusei Mephius (Star Arthur Legend; Planet Mephius)
  • VIA-1001: Thunder Storm (the helicopter game magicman showed?)
  • VIA-1501: Game Kit: Video Scramble
  • VIA-1502: Game Kit: Xevious Map
  • MVIA-101: Birdie Try (a golf game, I guess)
  • MVIA-102: Time Gal
  • MVIA-103: Road Blaster (is that the racing game magicman showed?)

See also http://www.generation-msx.nl/software/result?q=&searchtype=&...
It already lists some games to come with tape. Can you confirm and/or extend this information?

Also, any idea what VIA-4 is? (Perhaps that was for Highway Star?)

Oh, see also https://www.msx.org/wiki/VHD where you can even modify stuff if you want. E.g. that article says all software was provided on tape, not encoded on the VHD.
