Hello. My name's Omar, and I'm a relative newbie to the MSX scene. I'm from Dubai. I want to learn more about the MSX and its technology. At the moment, I own 2 MSX computers. One is a Sakhr AX170 and the other is an AX370.

Welcome to the forum! I only came across the MSX about two years ago... I found one cheap in a second hand store! I'd never heard of one before, because they weren't popular in the UK where i was born.

You say you've got two MSX'es... how did you come across them, and what made you decide to learn more about the MSX?

Well, I got them from an online local store, to answer that question. And secondly, I saw the impact the MSX had on Arabia and decided "well, why not buy one?"

Do you know where to look for the info that you want to know, or would you like some hints?

The only hint I can think to give are relating to hardware upgrades

I'd recommend the MegaFlashRom SCC if you want a Cartridge/Disk Emulator,
and if you're looking to really 'upgrade' the MSX, the V9990 is an excellent graphics adapter cartridge!

I'm not to clued-in on software really, I can't even use MSX basic, because I only use the MSX for games or ASM development... which I do with Windows (VASM assembler)+OpenMSX

The AX370 is a nice MSX2! Even has the MSX2+ VDP (V9958), so it may be able to run some of the MSX2+ titles as well, though there are not many of those.
