Hello,
I'm trying to play Burai on my Sony F1XD but I lack a Kanji ROM.
I have been told I need a Kanji display cart of some kind, such as the ASCII Write, Write 2,or Konami Wordpro. Checking on ebay only shows 2, each at the price of $130 USD, which is too much IMO.

Wanted to see if anyone here had one they would be willing to part with.
Thanks!

You may be able to use a flash cartridge with the ROM images of the MSX Write I or II or even the Kanji ROM from an MSX2+. Worth a shot if you ask me (assuming you do have a flash cart).

Not sure, but this might work: https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/u274401157

I would also try first the flash cart solution as well...

The FS-SR022 does not contain a Kanji ROM according to the wiki
https://www.msx.org/wiki/National_FS-SR022

Here is a list of cartridges that include a Kanji ROM

I tried it in openMSX with MSX-Write 2 rom (openMSX has a defined extension for this cartridge. With this extension in a CX7 Burai does display text. But it seems this cart is not just the ROM, there is also some I/O ports. not sure if this will work on a flash cart because of that...

The font Ron is accessed via I/o ports indeed, so you can't use a flashrom.

Thanks for the tips, all. I assumed flashing a ROM would not be an option, so I am attempting a jauce-proxy auction.

Muchas gracias Smile
