It's April 1st and as we're not pulling your April-fools-legs this year, let's move straight on to the MSX Download charts of March 2008. As you probably know by now, the MSX Download Charts are our monthly overview of which files from our freeware MSX downloads corner have been downloaded the most in the past month. About all attention of this month goes out to MEGA-Challenge entry Montana John and the Templar's Treasure, which was downloaded exactly 400 times during the 8 days after its release - an MSX download chart record! Another recent release, VScreen Car, is high in the charts again as well. Hopefully the first complete Vscreen-based game will soon see the light of day. Either way, the complete MSX Downloads Charts of March 2008 look as follows:

Well at least it is nice to know that there is a reasonable amount of people actually downloading and playing/played the game. (lets say about 200 of the 400 downloads).

Never thought the MSX still had 200 active gamers.Running Naked in a Field of Flowers

The downloads counted are each from unique IP addresses, so I reckon the amount of actual players you estimated is closer to 400 than you might think.
