If the main point is playing MG and programming some basic, why not just install an MSX emulator on your PC, grab MG and MG2 from the net somewhere and get going?

Or at least use an emulator until you spot a nice MSX2 on Ebay to buy? In my opinion, that would be better than to go to something weird like the Zemmix. Smile

Will NLMSX do the trick? Thing about that emulator is that it can't save and stuff.

BTW, I'm going to buy a MSX2 machine from Sony, anyway.

(Don't ask me how I got it, I just did)

Try blueMSX. Its pretty good. It also has save states which is nice when playing games. You can get more info about different emulators at the MSX Emulator Comparison

Cernex: what Sony do you have then? F700? G900?

None. The guy sold it before we could reach an arragement. (It was a G900, BTW)

So, I'm back were I began...

Can somebody please put a link to a good MSX, MSX2, MSX2+ or MSX Turbo R offer???

(BTW, blueMSX plays very slow when full screen, that's why I don't use it)

this one or this one would do just fine. Both are Japanese machines (100V/NTSC), so they would work just fine for you. You should prolly consider expanding the memory a little tho, since both are (iirc) 64kB machines. While this is just fine for playing (original) games like Metal Gear or Metal Gear 2, it's not enough for other software out there. Expanding these machines is usually not too much work though, and costs something in the order of $25, well worth the 'investment'.

Well, if both of them can come to Mexico (I can't go to USA, work issues) and if they're inside my finances I don't see why not...

But all I have are around 180 bucks... (dollars, of course...)

I'm worried...

With a wee little bit of luck, you'd be able to buy a Panasonic FS-A1ST MSX turboR for those $180 -- just keep an eye on eBay. When you have such a machine, there's no worrying anymore. 256kB memory ought to be enough for anyone Wink

And BTW: the Sony HB-G900AP/P/D is an excellent choice as well. One doesn't see them too often on eBay, but those are magnificent MSXes, just take that little bit care for the keyboard, which tends to go haywire after some time; keep it clean Wink

I really like the professional looks of that machine, plus, it has 256kB memory by default (iirc), the AP even 512kB or even 1MB (but I don't know for sure, though). Good luck, in any case Smile
