Shipping to the NL is 12 euros. But also for 4 pieces. So you can save up to 9 euros.

I have not found a video showing how does it run the final release on a plain msx2 without turbo cpu. Is there something on yt?

Maybe I don't get it right, correct me If I'm wrong:
The game uses v9990 for gfx and scc for music/sfx (provided in the cartridge itself).
So from the machine running it, are used only the Z80 and some RAM. Am I right?
So my question is: the game will run on msx1+v9990? If not, why? Are there some pictures on v9938 screen modes? And in that case, is it possible to remove them and so have a msx1 version?

The game will work on any MSX with 16KB of RAM memory. You even can run it on your Yamaha CX5 to enjoy the original arcade soundtrack. Smile

I have a few questions @assembler:
The music is much better than the old video posted ~1 year ago, but why the SFX are so different (compared to the PCB)?

I noticed there are a few pixel missing at the bottom of the screen, Is the vertical resolution smaller that the original PCB?
Maybe it's an emulator problem, but the Z80 video posted above seem to have less colors in the backgrounds, am I wrong?

Are the tricks/bugs (time stop trick, black frog) working in this version like in the arcade?

@Manuel: in general I am up for it, but how to get it to others? Through post is another 7 euros I guess. Had you some plan for that?

From the preorder email:

"The game works on any MSX with 16KB of RAM memory. To run on an MSX TurboR, you need 256KB of RAM.
When the game runs in Z80 mode, some animations and elements that do not affect the gameplay have been removed, but it has been a necessary cut due to the speed limitations of the microprocessor."

I hope this answers your questions.
