"The untold story of a VIC20" is a all-time-fav of mine, so it is such a surprise to see a vid you made featuring my favourite system.
This deserves a newspost on the frontpage.

Thank you very much for the nice comments and it thrills extra much you mention "The Untold Story of a VIC20" Smile
The entire MSX experience started when I was a kid and show me what the MSX is all about.

What exactly was the NTSC mod? ROM hack so that it boots in 60Hz mode?

Oh, wait, I guess the MSX2+ mod (VDP + ROMs) did that...

As it's an MSX2/2+ you can just switch to 50Hz with a simple command... you didn't know?

Would be nice to mention what the actual command is Manuel Smile.

VDP(10)=2 in MSX-BASIC.

I also think that the SCART cable maybe only has the composite video wires in it, because 60 Hz shouldn’t be an issue for an RGB connection…? The picture on the TV doesn’t look really sharp which adds to my suspicion about composite video.

Anyway, nice to hear your story, and glad you’re enjoying your MSX! Smile There is so much to explore.

this machine runs f1 spirit at 50Hz so no mod on that behalve.
