  1. Hi everyone c: I did this conversion of "Despacito" for MSX/Colecovision/Intellivision tonight, and I wanted to show it to all of you. I add the .bas file to compile on Intybasic and listen on your Intellivision. Enjoy. I will post here more of my works later. Check more of them on http://adan.eu.pn/ Despacito.bas
  2. Hello to all, I've seen some MSX and SG-1000 conversions for the ColecoVision. I was just wondering if there would be any converters in ROM format and sold for the ColecoVision. These three consoles are Z80 processors themselves. Other converters might be the Sord M5, the Casio PV-2000, or the Memotech MTX512.
  3. Hello, I have a few vintage 8-bit systems from the 80s that were built in Japan for sale.

  4. I decided to offer many of my MSX games as 'bundles'. These games were bought during my summer trip to Japan. They are for MSX machines. Down the road, I will be offering MSX machines as reasonable prices as well. I picked these games up as they tend to require to least amount of Japanese language skills necessary to enjoy them.

  5. Hey all, I recently purchased a Philips VG8020/00 MSX Home Computer. I'm having some trouble getting a decent video signal out of the thing. When I hook it up to my VCR/DVD Combo via the RF out and convert the signal into composite, I get a glitchy screen, jumping from left to right, going from color to black and white. However, the MSX boot up text is present, and when I press keys on the keyboard, they do get added to the screen. I used the automatic tuning options on my VCR/DVD combo, but it sadly does not improve the quality. I also tried connecting a Sega Mega Drive RGB connector to the Monitor out on the computer, but that didn't do anything apart from making some pop noises. I might have to get a different cable to test that out. I also know for sure that my set-up isn't the problem; I've connected other coaxial game-consoles the same way (Atari 2600, Videopac G7000) and they all work. The unit looks fine and all (no mayor external damage). What I did notice though, was some noises inside the machine when I held it sideways; there could be some dirt in there. Also, some buttons get stuck from time to time (especially the directional buttons). I'll open it up and give it a good clean one of these days. Has anyone here experienced similar problems and got them solved? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated! I hope the damage (if it has any) is not to severe; would be awesome to get it up and running again! Thanks!
  6. MSX Magazine 1998 to 1992 issues to download ! Hello ! This is a post about those incredible japanese magazines, that treat about MSX, I put the issue number 6 from 1998 to read directly, and a link to download another 49 issues. The link : http://gameplayerspecial.com/2012/07/07/msx-magazine-1998-to-1992-issues-to-download/ Thank you again !
  7. Not sure if anyone here has the knowledge to have a discussion on a technical level concerning the MSX standard. But I have a few questions concerning the various slot signals. 1) I see very few references to the SW1 & SW2 signals, other than they should be connected together on the cartridge pcb. However, no mention of where they go, or what they do. I'm assuming that there is some bit in some register set or reset. But I can't find any reference to it. Anyone have any idea? 2) As far as CS1, CS2, and CS12, I am assuming that these three select lines function independent of individual slots? I.e., they should be active on all slots at the same time, and not gated to specific slots? 3) SLTSL seems fairly easy to generate. My understanding is that the register A8h provides the 2-bit slot number for pages 0-3 of the 64k of memory. So I should be able to use a 1-to-4 decode on A15 & A14 to create my page select lines, and then just gate them properly with the A8h register to have the possible outcomes. (Been working on a truth table, but it going to be fairly extensive. This could probably be implemented with a fairly fast EEPROM for the logic). I understand how the decode works I think. I just want to verify I am not missing anything here. Any traps for noobs? If you're wanting more information as to the scope of what I'm doing, I am designing an expansion adapter for my MSX1 to open up Slots 2 & 3, possibly decoding one to the 4 secondary slots.
  8. From the album: Computer Food Coloring

    These are the 16 MSX/ColecoVision colors rendered in McCormick food coloring.
  9. This is the second installment in computer food coloring. This time, it's the MSX palette. It's also used on the ColecoVision, and the TI 99/4A. Therefore, it could be called the TI palette. It consists of 15 colors and a transparent color. Color 0 is Transparent. Black: 8 parts Black Medium Green: 9 parts Green Light Green: 5 parts Green Dark Blue: 7 parts Blue, 5 parts Neon Blue, 5 parts Neon Purple Light Blue: 2 parts Neon Blue, 2 parts Neon Purple Dark Red: 30 parts Red, 1 part Blue, 1 part Green Cyan: 3 parts Neon Blue Medium Red: 13 parts Red Light Red: 5 parts Red Dark Yellow: 8 parts Yellow, 3 parts Red, 2 parts Green Light Yellow: 3 parts Yellow Dark Green: 24 parts Green, 1 part Blue Magenta: 7 parts Neon Purple, 2 parts Green Gray: 2 parts Black White: None The transparent color was achieved by using plain water. The medium used was Sargent Art Art-Time white tempera paint, which is opaque. And here's how it turned out: That certainly looks cool! It's pretty accurate.

  11. Hi everyone! Recently i got successful on creating .rom files for MSX using Boriel's ZX-Basic Compiler. My idea is to do the same for ColecoVision, since it is a hardware very similar to MSX1, since the main differences are the i/o ports, memory arrangements, bios-like routines (or lack of them). What i have posted on forums, available to download (.rom and their sources) are at http://www.boriel.co...m/post4575.html and http://karoshi.auic....hp?topic=2479.0 I'm curious for your comments! cheers!

  13. Has anyone bought bought a Competition Pro Retro joystick from ICOMP ? The joystick seems advertised as msx compatible http://wiki.icomp.de/wiki/Competition_Pro_Retro but it lacks the second button (button B). It has two couples of buttons (one upper and one lower on the basis) and a switch (4 buttons + 1 switch total). Sadly, all buttons insist on the same A line and the switch can only activate or deactivate the upper couple of buttons. Is there someone who modified it to support the msx second button?
  14. SC22PC - Convert MSX Screen 2 bitmap pictures into ColecoVision bitmap pictures by Daniel Bienvenu aka NewColeco January 2017 Description This tool extracts the PATTERN and COLOR tables (6K each) from a MSX .sc2 file and save it into a neat 12K .pc file. Technical Infomation MSX .sc2 file is essentially a memory dump of the seven (7) video registers followed by 14K graphics data in video ram, aka VRAM. Technically, that includes also sprites which can be used to patch the picture to avoid color clash effect. ColecoVision .pc file is simply the bitmap screen, composed of 3 charsets, made of two (2) tables: PATTERN and COLOR. No sprites data. Note: It is possible to use .sc2 file into ColecoVision projects, but be sure to consider three (3) things: the video register flag "4K/16K" has no impact on MSX computers but does on ColecoVision game system, the VRAM data is the important part, a good lossless data compression should be applied on VRAM data to save memory space. MSX Screen 2 Sample Download SC22PC - Version 0.1 (EXE, SRC, BATCH FILE) : sc22pc-alpha20170115.zip Links MSX Screen 2 .sc2 files MIF - Convert pictures to MSX Image Format (Win32 command-line and GUI) Multipaint - Convert and Draw pictures for various systems including MSX SC2 Pixel Polizei - Draw pictures for various systems including ColecoVision and MSX

    Zanac

    Zanac for the ColecoVision Super Game Module. Software done. Several improvements: - Improved performance, the game hardly has any trace of slow down now. Super smooth... - Added a title screen menu with "continue" and "option". Now you can continue from the last "round" you played. - Option screen includes settings for game difficulty, auto fire and initial number of lives. - Game difficulty will adjust the ALC system for normal and easy games. Number of lives let you select from 1 to 9 lives. Now even mere mortals can enjoy Zanac lol - Auto fire offers normal, fast and faster speeds. Faster can make you a killer machine, but that will also send the ALC score through the roof, making the game harder. Ah, the beauty of Zanac... - A nice "sound test" is also offered, so you can enjoy all the tunes and sound fx. General info about the game===== - This is Zanac 1, the game that came out before NES Zanac, which is actually Zanac 2 - Game has 8 rounds (well, actually 9) - About one full hour of continuous gameplay - Your goal is to destroy the mechanized defense system core - Game difficulty is adjusted dynamically by the ALC (auto level controller) system - 7 different special weapons - dozens of different enemies and attack patterns - experience bullet hell on your ColecoVision like never before... Zanac is both a technical and game design masterpiece...

  19. I have a good amount of systems for sale... 1 qty = Color Computer 3 WITH 512K 3 qty = Color Computer 2 64K Extended BASIC 1 qty = MSX1 64KB All machines tested and working, very clean and packed carefully. I have sold countless CoCos on eBay and have great feedback. My machines are cleaned inside and out. The link below is to a list of all items.. https://www.ebay.com/sch/colorcomputerstore/m.html?_nkw=&_armrs=1&_ipg=&_from= p.s. Wondering how the Color Computer 3 is as a game machine? Check out this AWESOME Donkey Kong and Pac-Man transcoded versions !!! (Defender is being transcoded as well !!!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1yl9Be8es_c https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1sFduK9Bjo Thanks!
  20. I recently got an SX-1 MSX2+ FPGA with an SD card slot, but it also has a cart port and I'd like to know a couple good inexpensive (about $20-$40 loose) cart test games that can test the system in the cart slot. A two button game, where the two buttons do something obvious, with full movement and the option to use the keyboard controls would be good. I've looked around, but can't find a list of two button games to compare. Most of the ones I know of have ridiculous prices ($70+, loose) or, like Ninja Princess, I can't even find for sale. Something like Commando, Defender, 2-button missile command, etc. A reasonably priced ($50-$60) homebrew cart with these features would also be okay, although some out-of-print homebrews can get quite ridiculous in price as well. There is a port of Tutankhamen from the ColecoVision on cart, but it would be nice to have something unique and not $40 for CV Tutankhamen. Thanks.
  21. Hi all I'm thinking about releasing the OST of Sydney Hunter and the Caverns of Death (when the game is released for Colecovision), but I want to make a very high end release even if is only digital. My first idea was a Caverns Of Death OST with the music of every port of the game. But I think "Why not making a ENORMOUS RELEASE with the music of Sacred Tribe too and with music of at least 6 systems, an acoustic track and a bonus ROM with serial for the first 25 orders?". Basically like 60 tracks (or more) So, my idea is the next one: Sydney Hunter Definitive OST! - Sydney Hunter and the Shrine Of Perils music of Intellivision - Sydney Hunter and the Sacred Tribe OST music of Intellivision, MSX, NES. - Sydney Hunter and the Caverns of Death OST music of Colecovision, Sega Master System FM Sound, Gameboy. - A special acoustic song of Sydney Hunter and Sacred Tribe. - First 25 orders gets a ROM with the OST of both games for Intellivision. (Yes, even the Caverns Of Death music!) - Digital release, high quality FLAC files without compression. - Physical release? If the people wants, sure! Any ideas? Anybody is interested? Thanks for reading c:
