The Sunrise Foundation has announced her content for the Bussum fair, which will take place on October the sixth, 2007.

Hardware

First, the Graphics9000 is still on sale, an excellent fast MSX video chip for games, demos, and you can expect SymbOS to eventually run like a charm on it as well. Get it while you can!

Moving on to the sound department, there's an intake for new Moonsound cartridges as well as the MP3 player from Dennis Koller and Yobi, with Software from Prodatron. The MP3 player will also be presented as a luxury package (on the fair-only!). You can order this MP3 player tomorrow at the MSX Club West-Friesland meeting -where Dennis Koller takes your order and will answer all your questions about this product-, and on the fair in Bussum at the Sunrise booth.

The USB Game Reader can also be obtained, enabling you to plug 'n play your original MSX cartridges onto your PC. Also available are Compact Flash interfaces, always a practical piece of hardware!

Software

On the MRC forum we've witnessed how SymbOS was ported to MSX from the first day until where it is today. The same can be said about Manbow 2. We all remember norakomi's first BASIC versions of this shooter. Gradually, BASIC became assembly, and gradually the idea that norakomi could do a follow-up of Konami's most advanced shooter became fascinating. It's been finished for a while already, and you can buy it at the Sunrise booth for only €27.50! For this modest sum you get Manbow 2 on a "Koei"-format cartridge with SCC and a luxury box. The initial batch is limited, leading to the game only being available on this fair, and only one sale per person. If the whole operation turns out to be a success, perhaps a new batch will be made again! Impatient people can already watch a video of Manbow 2 here.

Want to release your game as a ROM? We already know Matra offers this service. Sunrise and Manuel Pazos have invested efforts into the small cartridges you might've seen earlier, housing the MultiROM. But now they are konami-sized cartridges! A demonstration of all this on the Sunrise booth.

If you didn't have them already, you can still buy older Sunrise software, such as Bombaman and Arranger 1 & 2. More games can be obtained in form of the MultiROM from Manuel Pazos.

Conclusion: enough reasons to make a trip to Bussum, next week!

***update*** The cartridge services Sunrise and Manuel Pazos have on offer feature full Konami-sized cartridges, not the small MultiROM ones.

Can I pre-order on that Manbow? I'll definitely be at Bussum, but if there is no pre-order, I hope I'll be there in time to get it!

And to hear that an intake for new Moonsounds will be there Big smile

***small update in the newspost: According to Manuel Pazos the "burn your ROM on real cartridge" service is offered in konami-sized cartridges (they are NOT small like the one of MultiROM).

The exterior of koei cartridges are like any other msx cartridges. Maybe the reference is meant for the interior, since koei produced 8mb roms + sram I can imagine they required some more space in the inside?

@sunrise: Thanx but I didn't receive you message.
Got a lot of problems lately with this address so I've changed it now in the contact list to an address with another provider. Sorry the trouble.
(ps. I already did send you a mail in dutch on 30 september 2007 22:35, that adress will do fine also)
