As long as it works correctly, it can run all the games correctly and English (even if I have to patch them) I am happy with it! I am also happy if it is just MSX1 as will. I am ok with that. I want to enjoy it 100% Big smile The site you showed me for games..there game selection is bad I do not like any of them..but I am buying that flash cart 100% for sure about it.

Is there any other website where there are hundreds of indie games I can download for the MSX (homemade brew games, even in BASIC)? Another question I have in mind. Is there a website where there ARE TONS of MSX BASIC games in PDF books that I can enter? Big smile

I would love that, too!!

Here’s two! http://www.msxcomputermagazine.nl/listingboeken.html

That brings back memories :).

It’s in Dutch, but I’m sure you’ll manage :). The first program, ICP/4 or ICP/5, lets you check the code you’ve entered against the numbers in the column to the right of the listings. It’s an easy way to detect typos.

The “Kort en Krachtig” section contain fun short programs. They’re good to start with! The games are marked as “Categorie: Spellen”.

Only type the listings that are in two narrow columns though (37 characters per line)… The listings that are full-width (80 characters per line) only work on MSX2 computers.

Can the code that works on MSX2 be optimized to work on MSX1? Or is it asking for more RAM, different video, sound that will not work on MSX1 no matter what I do?

The MSX2 has a new video chip that has a lot more screen modes, that’s the main difference. There’s no way to run MSX2 software on MSX1, the difference is too big.

But don’t worry, some of the greatest games are for MSX1… Penguin Adventure, King’s Valley II, Maze of Galious, Salamander, F1 Spirit, Eggerland, Elite, Blow Up! / Boulderdash, etc… so there’s plenty for you to play. In fact if I look on Generation MSX, there’s lots more MSX1 software than there is MSX2 software.

Though of course I can’t deny there’s also a lot of classic MSX2 games, especially if you like RPGs, and the Metal Gear games are for MSX2 as well…

Here is a list of RPGs for the MSX1. Some big names there: Digital Devil Story (predecessor of Persona), Dragon Quest, Dragon Slayer… But yeah the list for MSX2 is longer, I won’t deny it.

Still as I said in my previous post, a lot of great MSX1 games too :).

You can check them on Youtube, e.g. Salamander, King’s Valley II, Blow Up!, etc.

English MSX2… I have a Philips NMS8245… Not sure if I would call it sexy. Come on, look at that Wavy 2! Sanyo made some sexy machines Smile. Wavy 23 is an MSX2 model. Also some nice models in this thread.

Though I would first play around with your Wavy 2 for a bit before getting an MSX2… As I said, there’s plenty of good games for it. And you’ll have some time to understand what you want exactly. There’s a lot of choices, diskdrive or no diskdrive, SS or DS diskdrive, MSX2 or MSX2+, 64k or 128k memory, Japanese or English… If you buy a MegaFlashROM SCC+ SD 512k for example, you don’t really need diskdrive or memory. MSX2+ features are only used by very few games. Et cetera.

Note that most English MSX computers are European models, they require 230V power and have PAL video output. If you live in Canada, probably a Japanese model is much more convenient.

I really wouldn’t worry too much about the language. Those couple of Konami games that switch to Japanese, they don’t have much story anyway, and if you’re really curious about it you can always patch the ROM or look them up on Youtube. I’ve got a Japanese MSX too (Sanyo Wavy FD70) and it’s never been a problem, I would still use it if it weren’t in such a bad shape :).

[Edit: I made a whole bunch of edits.]

OK Big smile I will have complete fun with it!! And yes, the next MSX computer WILL BE A WAVY 23 one. I am into WAVY MSX computers the most!

By the way...I am into buying brand new MSX games as I am into buying PS 4/PS 3 games, new NES and SNES games. I treat the MSX as 100% console. Smile

Yeah don’t lose your enthusiasm… Do enjoy that Wavy 2 100%!

You can now play Dragon Slayer, Dragon Slayer II: Xanadu, Dragon Slayer Jr: Romancia, Dragon Slayer IV: Drasle Family, and then maybe 1 or 2 years from now if you find let’s say a Wavy 23, you can play Dragon Slayer V: Sorcerian and Dragon Slayer VI: Legend of Heroes! Smile
