The story of fixing my MSX AX-200

Image
 Hi  Here I post a video explaining how -with God's help- I fixed my MSX AX-200, the problems that faced me and how I load games on it. Unfortunately, I didn't took a video of myself fixing it since I was confident that it won't work but in the video, I post some images and videos with explanation.

Biggest Collection of MSX WAV and CAS games for Fragmented RAM MSXes

Image
 Hi [UPDATE] I added a collection of CAS games converted from WAVs generated from Official ROM collection, Manel Villegas ROMs and Arabic Educational ROMs. These only works for MSX AX-200, AX-150 and Victor HC-80. I use TapDancer from Android mobile to play these ROMs on my MSX AX-200 Deleted -UNSAFE PSG part of ROM naming due to restriction on file name when using SofaCAS It's a strange story but when I fixed -with God's help- my MSX AX-200, I downloaded MSX2CAS to convert games to work on it but most of them didn't work. I tried Caslink3, I got the same result. I used Castools to convert CAS games, I got better result. I searched and asked but didn't get reasonable answers, most people told me it was my cable issue, so I made a new cable. My question was, if the cable was the issue then why some games worked and some didn't. I didn't have random results which are caused by bad cabling. Some suggestions where that MSX AX-200 had a fragmented RAM divided between

Hi to all, I've downloaded all MSX magazines from archive.org and uploaded them to two Google drives since it's more than 15GB. The reason for uploading to Google drive is that to be easily downloaded. Now you can download an entire folder or all folders by selecting them with (CTRL+Left Click) then (Right Click) and select (Download). Here are the links for the two groups of magazines, divided so that each group size is less than 15GB which is maximum Google drive storage: MSX Magazines Group 1 MSX Magazines Group 2 Enjoy .. Thanks and God Bless

Biggest Collection of MSX Games Manuals

Image
Hi There, Here is a link to a google drive folder that contains 295 MSX games manuals downloaded using a search in archive.org, I downloaded and uploaded them here to be downloaded as a bunch by selecting multiple files then right click and choose download since downloading them as single files from archive.org is difficult. May be you'll see some files that are not MSX game manual, that is because I downloaded them as a bunch using some methods, and I didn't pay attention to all the files, please report me with the filename that is not an actual MSX game manual so that I remove it. Here is the MSX Games Manual Folder Thanks and God Bless

Configuring BlueMSX Launcher with MSX M-Box Screenshots and Games

Image
Hi .. As you may know, there was an MSX games launcher called MSX M-Box that contained 1300+ games along with their screenshots so that you can see the game before running it. Sadly, this launcher works only on WinXP and below, it won't launch games on Win7, Win8 or Win10. To solve this issue, I found BlueMSX Launcher on the web which is an excellent launcher, but didn't found a full collection like the MSX M-Box one, so I extracted the games and their screenshots from MSX M-Box, and in the video below I explain how I did this, and the other parts of the video explains how to configure BlueMSX Launcher for your use. Download links: BlueMSX Launcher with MSX M-BOX 4.5 Screenshots and Extras  : To install it by yourself (steps explained in IMPORTANT.TXT and in the video). MSX Launcher Portable  : ready to play version, you must put it in C:, so that the home folder will be C:\MSX Launcher (explained in IMPORTANT.TXT and in the video). Thank you and God Bles
