This Saturday the tratitional new-years MSX users meeting in Oss will be held. As usual, the place to be is the 'Oude Theater' on the Bram van den Berghstraat in Oss, just a small walk from the train station. This year the following standholders will be attending the fair:

So if you have the opportunity, take your chance to meet active MSX user, buy the latest (or second hand) MSX Software titles like Bombaman, BombJack and Bounce Mania. You can also get your hands on some cool (Sunrise) hardware or have a look at the various new developments on display.

During the fair MRC, Sunrise and Team Bomba will hand out the prizes to the Bombaman Challenge. On the MSX Resource Center booth you can probably have a look at the recent version of Cipher, an impressive action RPG developed with Dante 2. Furthermore the MSX Game Reader (not connected to PC) and several recent MSX magazines and publications, including the new MSX Top Secret 2, will be put on display.

Last year the meeting was more crowded than ever. Perhaps we can set a new record this year? See you this Saturday!

Spoiler, especially for turbor:
you'll be able to play BombJack at the Bitwise booth. Please note that it is not cool to occupy my A1ST during the whole fair Smile

@[D-Tail]: there's a very simple solution to that... simply don't take your turboR to Oss then...
@Wolf_: and have another community spotting the MSX scene not being dead? Wink I think it's a bit overkill... any suggestions? Smile

@samor: that's because they can't "see" eachother... Try connecting them with a serial cable, then they'll fight!!! Tongue

C64: "pff, if it isn't mr. dull-scrolling-msx!"
MSX: "Pah! With that kind of graphics, even an Atari 2600 could scroll smooth!"
C64: "WHY YOU! At least I don't need add-on soundchips to sound good!"
MSX: "Like you HAVE any!"
C64: "I don't need them."
MSX: "My moonsound is listening to you, and laughing!"

^I guess they do that when I'm not looking..... Wink

I didn't receive their names from NBNO. Which could mean they won't be there, or that their registration has not been confirmed as of yet. IIRC Bas recently wrote in the forums he'll be there, though. (As a visitor, or with a stand?)

I'll be there and I have something for everyone.
Please ask me there if you get nothing.

I have a box with me with drive belts, drives, stepdown-trafo's, some cables, msx-mouses and a few spare-parts.
