Today I received two very hi-res scans of Philips Dutch MSX posters / Brochures from Emil Sokolowski. He took these to a local printshop to get them scanned. You can find them here:

They are called PhilipsMSX1-2.PDF & PhilipsMSX2-2.PDF.

Enjoy your trip down memory lane!

Someone on Facebook also asked for the Philips MSX2 Demo. You can Download it or view it online.

I was looking for that since years (but forgot to ask you)!
This is an amazing demo written in BASIC. In 1986 this was a good argument to buy an MSX2.

Is it 100% basic? iirc there's a part in space where a word is being drawn while music is being played. on interval? (I never used that so I wouldn't know its benefits Wink )

The PLAY command queues up phrases of music to play in the background while the program continues.

The primary downside is that when the next phrase is played, there’s a small audible delay in the playback. You can hear it in the demo. A bit of a shame, that.
