ericb59 released a program to connect a MSX to online MSX ROM databases using the GR8NET cartridge.

Save it as autoexec on a device or launch it from the GR8NET Basic with these commands:

a$="http://www.ebsoft.fr/msx/gr8net/rombase.bas":run"httpa:a$"

The program will connect to an online database on ericb59's website.
You can then enter a keyword to search for a specific ROM... For example enter "Penguin" or "Killer" or "Road".
The program will search in a more than 900 ROMs and show you the results.
Enter the number of the ROM you want to launch, wait less than 10 seconds and play it!

Get it here. Only 3KB.Here's a video to show you how simple it is to use: video.

Why enribar ?

You can save the program on a device attached to your MSX (SD, CF, HD, Floppy etc...) and run it from this device.

Does it require a certain firmware? Previous versions worked fine but the latest one gives an error.
