Yes, they work with TV's.

A large games database is Generation MSX, and I can recommend games from Microcabin (RPG's mostly).

He's from the states.. a little bit expensive to fly to NL. Tongue

(oh, and it's "Manbow 2", not "Space Manbow 2", but never mind details ^_^)

Wolf_ are there any plans that someone like sunrise foundation could sell the game to people that are not able to go to NL ? I think there would be many people that would really want to purchase Manbow 2 Cool

Thanks a lot guys. MSX machines never came out in the US so I had no clue how they work.

You may have a lot of starter questions, make sure you dive into the MSX FAQ then! *fixed :P *

nikodr: dunno, as far as I understand the Sunrise/Bussum newspost as it was submitted, the first batch is for Bussum visitors, what's left goes to Finland, after that ppl can sign up by contacting norakomi directly.

I thought that a pity.
Always nice to see how a lot of oldschool game fans from the US seem to find their way to MSX anyway. Smile

Some Japanese games will automatically swith to NTSC (60 hz) mode when booting.
This will cause multiple bouncing screens on some (older, European(?) television sets.

Ofcourse there are ways to avoid this happening (swith to 50 hz then starting the game), but:
If you want to experience the Japanese (and some Western) games the way the developers *exactly* meant them to be, you should play them in 'NTSC' mode.
There's quite a substantial difference in framerate and speed of the music/sound between 50 and 60 hz.
(The music is slower at 50 hz)

I think you're clear there however, because AFAIK American TV's also use 60 hz.

Have fun!
