Kris Garrein just opened a new website on his computer collection. Recently, he acquired several extremely rare Daewoo MSX consoles:

  • Daewoo CPC-51R Zemmix V
  • Daewoo CPC-51W Zemmix V
  • Daewoo CPC-61W Zemmix Super V
  • Daewoo CPG-120 Zemmix Turbo (the legendary UFO)

He took many high resolution pictures and launched a new website dedicated to these Zemmix consoles. You can find this new MSX website here. For all non-Zemmix objects in Kris' collection you can visit this website

Ah, nice page update. It looks better now!! (although copy/paste don't work in flash Sad ) Anyways, I'll forward you a mail I sent to another page author about the Music Box.

P.s. Congrats with your Zemmix Turbo! Nice to have some more info about its capabilities aswell now. It's like my MSX, also an MSX2 with v9958 ^_^. Maybe it also has 7MHz??? Hehehe... Ahwell.

You send me basic code to check for 7MHz, and I'll check Smile
But I don't think it has 7 MHz Big smile

Next update tomorrow Smile

No, I actually don't think so either, hehe, was kinda kidding Smile. It would break a lot of games.

I updated the Zemmix site with the new model: Daewoo Super Boy.
Also made some small tweaks and bugfixes.

Greetings.

IIRC the V9948 was in the Daewoo CPC-200 and CPC-300... In any case not in any Zemmix, which are mainly just consoles afterall.

Daewoo CPC50 Zemmix -> TMS9918 (or TMS9928)
Daewoo CPC51 Zemmix V -> TMS9918 (or TMS9928)
Daewoo CPC61 Zemmix Super V -> V9938
Daewoo CPG120 Zemmix Turbo -> V9958 !!!

Why the "MSX2" logo in the CPG-120?:

It should be "MSX2+".

No, MSX1 computers with V9938 aren't MSX2's either. The BIOS ROMs are MSX2, so it's MSX2. Simple Smile

Maybe because it is not? MSX2+ is more than only a v9958 chip... Updated BIOS and Basic 3.0 amongst them, and the #F4 I/O port aswell. And, although not part of the standard, KUN-BASIC and MSX-Music are also very often included with those computers.

This weekend I'm going to test if the rumor of an internal SCC chip is true or fantasy (on the Super V and Turbo).

I think it is true Smile. It can quite easily be found out, actually, by opening up one of those Zemina bootlegs of Konami games with SCC sound. If there's an SCC in it, then next to the ROM itself there should be at least a resistor array present, I think.

Anyways, I wonder how it sounds Smile. The several sites mention the sound difference. Hey, while you're testing, maybe you could make an MP3 out of it?

I'll try Smile
Sadly I don't own any Korean released SCC Konami games...
I tried Space Manbow (Japanese) and it works fine on the Turbo (off course), but I guess that's not an exact way of testing it Smile
I'll run the code I received in the forum for testing it.
Hope it has good results.
