The TMS limits are there for everyone, MSX1 is not exactly comparible with PS2, mobiles etc.

It's like comparing players @ darts... if you ask them, they'll say: 'we all have 3 darts to throw'.. Tongue

unfair!!? :-)
My god ... code for MSX is not exactly the same as do for PC, Mobiles, PS2, etc.
I have needed to dedicate many hours for building all from zero!!! (i have started with this project 1'5 month ago)
Make the engine for the game (vdp, scc, psg, memory, etc.) including testing and reading forums and docs.
Make a tool for exporting compressed graphics (bitmap to screen2, bitmap to sprite)
Make a tracker tool for creating music with PSG + SCC and export compressed.
Make a linker for organizating the code and data inside a MegaROM file.
Make a map tile editor for creating the maps.
And i'm just preparing actor scripts, boss scripts and a lot of things for starting to implement the level design.
Really! it's very hard .. but .. i will get it sure! Crying

@nerlaska: Good luck. I don't know if it's unfair or not. (I think ARTRAG wasn't too serious). But it must help having made games in the past.

Making an RPG for MSXdev'06 is a realy big project. I hope you don't have to make too much compromises due to the deadline.

I'm having high hopes for this issue of the MSXdev as all projets seem 'first class' games.
If only they were made 15 years aqo. Shocked!

Yes, MSX friends!
I want to create a good RPG for MSX-1 and give some fun to the MSX community.
But ... it's a personal question with my mine Smile
I started coding with a MSX-1 and .. in this time ... i had no Internet and nothing .. only my MSX-BASIC book of my VG8020.
I played to KnightMare and other games .. and .. my brain .. only wants to create a game .. but! it's very fustrating without documentation.
Well .. 18 years of time have passed .. and .. i have returned "to the past" for creating a MSX-1 game :-)
It's really fun!! Cool
