Saturday next weekend is the day of the annual MSX Fair in Nijmegen. Considering the 14 participants so far, the fair seems to be growing in popularity. Let's run them through..

  • openMSX Team - Demonstration of (the released or upcoming) openMSX 0.8.1., all Laserdisc games, the latest developments, the new Catapult and the debugger GUI. Also, it'll be possible to see openMSX running on the Dingoo A320.
  • MSX Resource Center - Sale of the famous blue MSX T-shirts. Medium is sold out unfortunately, but we still have: small, large, and extra large.
  • SuperSoniqs - Demonstration and sale of PlaySoniq.
  • WORP3 - Demonstration and sale of the MIDI-PAC.
  • Bas Kornalijnslijper - Repairs, expansions, cables, parts, buy and sale of second hand MSX hardware.
  • MSX Vriendenclub Mariënberg - Promotion of MSX Vriendenclub Mariënberg.
  • Ray2day - Promotion of Raymond's MSX Page and RAY2DAY MSX SOFTWARE with a demonstration of the MSXdev '10 game Mission2Mir.
  • Trilobyte-MSX - Presentation of their upcoming MSXdev '10 game and demonstration of other projects.
  • Bitwise - Sale and demonstrations of Spanish and Brazilian MSX games; cartridges, Shockware and disk games.
  • Sunrise - Sale of Sunrise products.
  • MSX Club West-Friesland - Promotion and sale of MSX equipment, including books, magazines, software and hardware.
  • Delta Soft - Unfortunately, all good things come to an end. Delta Soft is one of the oldest Dutch groups, and because of their huge booth constructions, you simple couldn't have missed them during fairs. This is the last time Delta Soft will be present on an MSX fair. If you still miss some Delta Soft products in your collection, this is the chance.. possible the last chance, to make your collection complete. Among many others, Delta Soft has made titles such as Konami Quiz 2, Find It and Thunderbirds to the Rescue.
  • Darkstone - Promotion of Darkstone, demonstration of Daq: Lord of Idar, Beez and Bouncemania.
  • Arabic MSX Committee - A lot of you may point out Japan, Europe and South America as firm MSX areas, but don't underestimate the Arabic MSX world. All the way from Dubai, there's an exhibition of rare Arabic cartridges and manuals.

Traditionally, the day ends even more Eastwards; the hardcore visitors gather together for a fine meal in the nearby Chinese restaurant. Seats are limited, if you haven't reserved yours yet, contact the organizer. See you next week, January 22nd, Wijkcentrum Hatert, Couwenbergstraat 22, Nijmegen!

@Zett: I bet it would like it very much. Talking about the weather and things with his fellow Arabic computers. Must be hard for him to be away from home so far.

Reading this post I've discovered with a YT video the new trilobyte project for MSXdev'10. I had not news about it. NICE! Great! Zanac look-alike game with a music remake of Deep Dungeon intro. ^_^

Hello, Sunrise... will you bring Denyonets to the fair?

The software is ready, BTW. There is a fully functional TCP/IP UNAPI compatible BIOS that is being tested (I think) by the card makers.

I regret that DELTA SOFT does not wish to participate any more in the meetings MSX. Crying

I have a lot of admiration for this very nice and productive team, which I was able to meet twice in my life: in 1995 in TILBURG, and in 2010 in NIJMEGEN.
I hope that this group will pass on the spirit of the standard to their children, and will continue to propose its realizations on sale on its site for a long time. Tongue

Do Deltasoft end their activities or do they only not want to participate anymore on MSX meetings? Can't find info on that anywhere.

@ FiXato: Edwin has been doing some (IMHO) absolutely great work lately on the code, and a little bird told me that yum did some new gfx work, so a little demonstration may be well in order. Smile
Great that you are going too BTW!!!
