This is a compilation of different sources of stuff for MSX-1 and MSX-2 home computers.

MSX were 8-bit home computers developed by ASCII and Microsoft in Japan. MSX begun producing in 1983 year, MSX-2 in 1985 year. Many big companies (http://www.passionmsx.org/msxgamesbox/museum/index.php) produced their models of this computer: Sony, Panasonic, Toshiba, Philips, etc. These computers were popular in Japan, South Korea, Brazil, Netherlands, Spain, France, USSR, but almost not known in USA. More than 1500 games were made for it, but many of them have no English language versions. From 1988 year 8-bit computers and MSX specifically loose interest to them, being exceled by 16-bit computer systems becoming cheaper. There were sold about 5 million MSX in the world, quantity comparable to Apple II and Atari ST, and more then Amstrad CPC.

=Technical specifications=

MSX-1 (1983 г.): CPU Zilog Z80A 3.58 MHz; RAM to 64 KB; videochip TI TMS9918, 16 KB, 256x192x16 colors (palette 16 colors), hardware 1-color sprites; 40x24 text; soundchip AY-3-8910, 3 channels + noise; ROM with BASIC; cartridge slot for programs and expansions.

MSX-2 (1985 г.), difference from MSX-1: RAM 64-128 KB (in common); videochip Yamaha V9938, 128 KB, 512x212x16 colors, 256x212x256 colors (palette 512 colors, no influence to near pixels; 256 colors mode was not used in games, in common), hardware 16-color sprites; 80x24 text; clock chip; 100% hardware compatibility with MSX-1; ordinary, had a built-in 720 KB floppy drive. As an addition many users installed MSX-MUSIC cartridge expansion. MSX-2 have the best graphics capabilities among 8-bit home computers (among 8-bit platforms Sega Master System is close).

Some games were ported from ZX Spectrum to MSX-1 and look the same ugly as at Spectrum. Games that were specially developed for MSX-1 and especially MSX-2 look with a noticable difference.

Hello everyone. This really works!
I mean: I complete the download and unpack the files. Whew!

Now I'll spend some time validating files, according to checksum information in the openMSX and blueMSX the data files.

In the past, I downloaded over 18GB of files. But after to work very hard to eliminate the duplicate files, I reduced the collection to 4 GB for now.

Finally, after obtaining this collection, I will do the final check and, who knows, I can upload a definitely well cataloged collection!
Hi, everyone, It realy works!
