I was wondering if anyone out there might have a spare MSX2 they would be willing to sell. I'm looking for a Japanese MSX2 with at least 128kb of RAM and a 3.5" (720kb) disk drive. I'm also looking for a data cassette recorder, control pads (not joysticks), and any Falcom games that anyone may have for sale (especially Xanadu). If anyone thinks they could help out, please send me an e-mail at monotonerecs(at)hotmail.com.

Thanks,
Kevin

if it's a Japanese machine you are looking for, most will come with 64Kb only. Which is not an issue if you only want to play japanese disk games or games in Rom format, those don't require more than 64kb.

That's not true. Both require 64Kb RAM if you own the originals.

He was talking about japanese diskgames. Well, (SD) Snatcher needs 128kbyte RAM Smile Ok, the 64kbyte RAM is inside the cartridges, but hey, that was not the point Wink

I didn't realize that most games need only 64kb. Do most of the translations only need 64kb as well (specifically the Delta Soft translation of Sorcerian)?

Yeah, 64kbyte will do just fine if you want to play those commercial Japanse games. Same goes for the translated ones.

Yup, the only issue you'll encounter with a 64kb machine is if you want to play cracked Megaroms ported to disk (you'll then need 128Kb or more). But noone here is playing cracked games Wink Ahem...

Also many European MSX2 games / demos / tools require more than 64kb

What the hell. If you are going to buy an MSX buy a Panasonic FS-A1ST or FS-A1GT. No more "64Kb RAM" problems Smile

Okay, I'm pretty sure I'm getting a computer (a Sanyo Wavy 23 to be exact), but I'm still looking for a disk drive, control pads, and a data cassette recorder (preferably Sanyo models if possible). Anyone out there interested in selling or trading?

The Sanyo Way 23 is a great looking machine Smile

But why do you specificly look for an external Sanyo FDD ???
Those external FDD's are hard enough to find as it is...

[OFF TOPIC]
Maybe that's an idea for Sunrise Smile
An external floppy drive system from which you can boot your MSX machine...
