Topic: MSX Revival
Languages:

On March 18th a new milestone was reached in the MSX Revival: co-operating with MSX Association and D4 Enterprise, Konami finally took their first steps in the MSX revival by launching a games section on i-Revo, available to Japanese visitors only. One of the first games released was the MSX version of Nemesis (Gradius).

As of today, beta versions of the Hyper Sports and Olympics games (also known as) Track and Field are available. An interesting feature on the games is support for dual-player mode over the internet. With this, the i-Revo version of MSXPLAYer is -to our knowledge- the first MSX emulator to support multi, well... dualplayer MSX gaming over the internet.

Tip 1 : To explore the i-Revo site, use an anonymous Japanese proxy

Tip 2 : Page with demos for different games is http://game.i-revo.jp/game/free/index.html

Enjoy ! LOL!

And the on-line page :

http://game.i-revo.jp/dl/online/onlineGameTop.do

But no way to play online outside Japan :(

Files are on secured pages and probably don't accept proxies :evil:

Tip 1: Forget I-Revo
Tip 2: It's about time some people here in Europe start to do something (bazix?)
Tip 3: Don't give access to the Japanese people Tongue
