    MSX Retro systems

    1chipMSX was released in Japan with a limit of 5000 units. It will be difficult to get this. Recently released MSX hardware would be an ideal choice.

    I have some information about SX-1 Mini, SM-X and MSXVR. Interestingly, I learned from Facebook's share. My MSX environment is happy with the current emulator. I had a 1chipMSX in the past, but I rarely used it. If I have a financial solution, I might consider MSX hardware instead of 1chipMSX.

    Favorite Atari system

    I immediately watched the "Princess Rescue" video and understood what porting was: I could also add "Zippy": I know that there was Pitfall as a wide area game at 2600. To some extent it may have been possible even at that time:

    Favorite Atari system

    I was shocked to see Mario Bros playing 2600 on YouTube :oops:: Because my memory of Mario Bros was Family Computer (NES): Then I watched 2600 game videos on YouTube.

    When I saw this Mike post, I saw a moderator logging in with me. After that I see a new moderator every time I refer to the forum. It seems that several people are moderators. This forum is safe.
