Description

The Daewoo CPC-61, also referred to as the Zemmix Super V or Victory is a MSX2 compatible gaming console. Strangely, the design is simpler as for its MSX1 predecessor, the CPC-51. It was released by the Korean company Daewoo. All MSX-compatible consoles from Daewoo are called Zemmix that means 'It's Fun'.

There where two color variations, the white which is the CPC-61W and the black which is the CPC-61B.

This machine has only one cartridge slot and it's possible to add a keyboard. The addition of a disk drive can also be made, but will use the unique cartridge slot. For these reasons, the MSX2 logo appears on this machine, what's not the case of the Zemmix MSX1 consoles.

It has an extra text mode in Basic, the SCREEN 9. It is a text screen mode based on the graphic SCREENs 5 and 6 to display Korean characters.

Official price was ₩135,000 the unit.

Specifications

The CPC-61 is a MSX2 console that does not use a MSX-Engine but a custom IC DW64MX1 that includes the 8255 PPI, slot select circuitry, a memory mapper and various glue logic. The CPU is a Z80A from Goldstar (GSS Z8400A PS).

The main RAM is present on slot 0-2, a configuration that can cause poorly written software to crash. Also, with this layout, the POKE-1,(15-PEEK(-1)\16)*17 trick to workaround buggy software that does not handle subslots properly will cause this machine to freeze.
