...this nice little flash movie has been doing the rounds in various forums lately, so I thought I would post it here, too....

...I dedicate this movie to the select few who actually know what this stuff is all about... :D

I'll be honest. I got the general meaning, but not all specifics. I don't think that's too bad for a "Dutch outsider" (or is that MSX fanboy) though :p

nice movie ;)
oh, yes...sadly the speccy ports on MSX were often seriously butchered during the conversion process. Jet Set Willy came out unscatched, though.
But then again, the Konami rompacks have always been more popular on MSX, not only with me, but with most (Dutch) MSX users.... I have collected 27 konami rompacks over the past few years now, a lot of them are cart only, but some with box and/or manual. And then a bunch of other carts too. I have one original disk-based MSX2 game and a small amount of tapes, but I don't fire those up a lot (I have disks copies of those anyway).
You mean Hero, I think. :)

Atari 2600 original (Activision game), ported to several other systems. The MSX port was excellent. I've only seen a tape version of it in the Netherlands, but I know a rom exists.
they were both awesome :)
unlike the Speccy ports, the ones from Activison were good, and better looking than the Atari 2600 originals. Beamrider, Hero, Keystone Kapers and River Raid are favs of mine on the MSX.

(I also think Activision's games were overall way better than Atari's own on the 2600)
