Works with all MSX1 with 64k.

Beware ! Doesn't work with Yamaha CX5MII.

(CX5MII is not a "real MSX1"))
To work on an MSX2 or higher, you must to change eprom with an other one called ROGO2.

It is a good price. Do you have pictures of the tape? (did it come with the cartridge?)

It's a simple demo tape (a black tape without any sticker). Come with this, a paper with some informations. It was sold with the cartridge and with the book.

According to a test in MSX Computer Magazine (a long time ago) the shape of the cartridge might cause some problems: As some cartridgeports are a bit deep inside the MSX computer, it might be hard to make a contact between the cartridge and the computer's cartridge connector...

There's an interesting thread on the MRC about the Robotarm here:

Note the compatibility issues with MSX2+ and turboR (and probably with MSX2, too).

There are some "issues" with the cartridge on a MSX 2 and above. I have two of these Robotarm-beauties lying around and one of them has a cartridge that has been adapted especially for MSX 2. I don't have the two cables and the tapes anymore though. If anyone is interested in buying mail me...
