After being offline for a while, Cheatmsx is back up and running! Started by Hydragon in 2009, CheatMSX is a collection of gameplay-related information about MSX games. For now, the database contains 29 cheats, 220 maps and 14 walkthoughs, and hopefully these numbers will grow.

So this is also a call to the MSX community, to help out by adding more content in the form of cheats, maps, walkthroughs, guides etcetera. If you want to submit anything to the site, you can either use the "submit cheat" form on the site or either contact Hydragon directly through e-mail or in any of the IRC channels (#msxdev and #msx) he visits.

@djh1697 : Awesome! Good to see the info helped you out. Cool
@Samor : spoiler-alert Evil : that is actually a section (Peeks, Pokes & Loaders) which will be added, can't say when, but soon!
@mars2000you : every map is added as a single file in the database and counted for, with a few more clicks you get the rest of them, reason is very simple: people sometimes want just a certain part of the map, instead of everything.

28 clicks for Snail Maze !!! Simply ridicule, BiFi could have put all the mazes on one file and the solutions on another file !!!

And for the other multi-maps games : it's your choice but some people like to have directly all the maps of one game in a zip file, because they can unzip it in a directory with the name of this game.

I could have proposed my game maps for your site, but without the zip option, it will not be possible. Sorry ! For the other people, go here: http://eggerland.msxblue.com/

Not BiFi, but I uploaded them and added them 1 by 1 in the database. I'm the one to blame

Enjoy, if you want to have everything spreaded on the web, fine by me.
Because that is actually why the website was created, to become one source for all cheats, maps and so on.

You don't seem to realise that the website very recently came back online, not getting the point, how much time and work was spend to get everything up and running again.
So instead of bashing on a website you could also take the time to send an email, like I said before in a previous comment.

I'll keep up my work on the website, more sections will be added and more features are planned.

And now mars2000you : Tijd voor een bakkie pleur en een peuk!

I offered it to him. I think it's a good thing to concentrate everything (or at least as much as possible) on one central place ins stead of having to search all over the net for every single game...

yeah and thx again for this Meits, meanwhile, did zip the files as well and they are now available on those pages.
Was first fixing, some stupid fail bug with getting the latest updated items from DB.
Header is renewed. Slowly the site is improving by bits and pieces.

Excellent news, the header is indeed better and the downloading is very fast, also for the zipped files.

I've just given the permission for all my MSX games maps with one exception : Inferno, because it's not a complete game ... Yes, I'm still waiting for the full version of this great game !!! Wink

Great job reviving the cheatMSX website,
Maybe you can add a password generator section, like on my website CINICSystems.TK

Most of the password generators are written in Javascript,
feel free to grab the sourcecode from the HTML file and implement it in to your site.

Thx, gonna take a look at it Wink

Still I wonder at @MRCTEAM, why the post didn't get Spotlighted! Could one of thos team members enlighten me about this?
a minor upgrade of a tool gets spotlighted, a song ( not even in MSX format ) gets spotlighted, a source for all MSX related cheats ( Maps, Walkthrough Guides, Peeks & Pokes, IPS Patches, Game Cheats and soon even Password Generators ) doesn't, kind of strange behaviour if you ask me.
