I can get as many V9958 chips as needed from Japan.
However I have to buy at least 10 or 20.

Personally I only need 2, so is anybody interested in these chips ?

The V9958 chip, is the videochip used in MSX2+.
You can build it in an MSX2. Then you're able to use scr 10,11 & 12.
(You need to adapt the basic rom too of course)

How much would one chip cost?
I think (2 or) 3 of them would be enough for me Wink

Depends on how many I have to order. The more the cheaper...
I think 1 chip is normally 2000 yen (about 15 euro).
(keep in mind that they also need to be shipped from Japan, but that shouldn't be expensive because of the low weight)

Where do you live ?
There are excellent docs available on how to place it in an MSX2 on the web...

Well I think it was 2000 yen a piece. Unless I misunderstood. I sent an email to the person for confirmation. I'll let you know here.

Anyway, if I'm correct all together we need 4 chips now ?
But I need to order at least 10, or the deal will not work Smile

If I find enough people interested, I could make a little HOWTO website about installing a V9958 (I will make a photoshoot of me installing one then Smile...

Heh, I got two of them already Smile. A similar purchase was done a few years ago. I let Bas from MCWF replace the v9938 with a socket, and he did it very well (the way he did it, it is still compatible with a v9938) (I haven't seen the method described anywhere, I guess I'll have to take a look how it's done once and then publish it) and it wasn't too expensive I believe. Then I could just plug in my v9958 and all worked like a charm.
