I think not...
it would just be handy to have some 'new' mgs2 carts for use on a real msx.
Of course there's the translated disk version, but not everyone has 512kb in his msx2.

Hey, buy one of those SCC-DRAM-cart-thingies... You can 'upload' whatever the heck you feel like. It is a bit of a shame though, that with these prices there soon won't be any MSX users with an original MG1/2 left...

If it's just for playing the game, doesn't it make more sense to just fire up an emulator and drop in a nicely translated version instead of playing an unreadable copy of the japanese original using an old real MSX (which probably old enough to be about to break down)?
Dude, you can just as easily play the translated version on an old real MSX! And they don't break down as easily as PC's or something you know... tsk

I sold my original MG1 once... (I started recollecting only a few years ago)

I didn't expect it to turn that rare Tongue

I have the PC versions of MGS1 & 2 now though... heh.

My own MSX does have 512KB so I can run the translated MG2 pretty well... but a friend of mine only has 256kb in his MSX2, meaning he can almost run everything except that one.

But an SCC d-ram cart? aren't those kinda rare/not cheap either?

that's pretty interesting. Though I'd be a little reluctant to slaughter an SCC cartridge for it Wink

if they had a 2048kb version you could load the zemmix 126 in 1 on it Wink

You're not suggesting to sell them as being real ones, are you?Uhm, that would be the whole point indeed... Tongue Note that I'm not suggesting anything! But the thought does come to mind when you see another moron pay $500,- for a MG2...

Ah gotcha, I guess I should've read the original post a bit more carefully ;-)
I'm actually surprised that there is still such an active MSX scene, willing to buy games to play on the real thing! Pretty cool

Dude, you can just as easily play the translated version on an old real MSX!
Hmmm, not on *my* MSX (even it wasn't gathering dust somewhere) :-/

And they don't break down as easily as PC's or something you know... tsk
Heh, you're probably right as there's less stuff in there to break down :-)
But when it does (and sooner or later it will), you can only buy another old one that might well be about to break down too. Life sucks huh? ;-)

erikd: to be honest, I don't think those original MG2's are actually played. They're for collectability, and as they're very rare one is supposed to be careful with them (so better play the translated disk version ;p). If I were to have MG2, I wouldn't touch it with a finger! Of course, for Quarth and Salamander it is a different manner Smile. Much easier to play them quickly from cart instead of having to find a disk among many and wait for it to load. And cooler to have them original Smile.
