Hans Otten MSX Info Pages
On these pages you find a wealth of technical information on the MSX computer. Service manuals, user guides, datasheets are what is collected in the Technical info pages. Expanding and experimenting with a MSX computer is easy: the enhancement section tells about memory mappers, speed updates, upgrades to MSX 2+ and much more. Fun enhancements of the MSX. Programming becomes easy with the many example sources in assembler, Pascal, C, found in the programming section. Also find there compilers and assemblers. A collection of technical books, magazines and DIY articles support the do-it-yourself and programming activities. Many articles are in English (original or translated by me) or in Dutch (since I am dutch and have collected many articles from dutch books, magazines and authors).

Welcome, brave visitor. In this page you will find konamiman’s software productions for MSX computers (well, not all of them, but the ones that are worth using), useful mainly for programmers of such obsolete system. And of course, all for free (freeware, do-whatever-you-want-with-it-ware, etc), since as Linus Torvalds said once: “Software is like sex: it is much better when it is for free” So go for it, download everything you want and for any comment, suggestion or complaint write konamiman to the e-mail address that appears at the beginning of his webpage.

Meits' simplistic Hideout
Meits (Jelle Jelsma, 1977) came in contact with MSX in 1986 when his dad bought an MSX through a computer sales program at the company he worked for. The choice was a Sony 700 or a Philips 8235. Since those machines were awfully expensive, the 8235 was taken home. Meits was jealous as hell to all the others who got a Sony 700 since he couldn’t play the same games they could. So every time he got back from a visit to one of the Genic guys, all he had were some MSX1 games. Luckily a few years later the 8235 was traded to a Sony 700. Back to Genic’s Ronald Zijlstra. Unfortunatly he sold all his MSX stuff and pointed him to (Chip) Andre Annema. Later on, Andre and he started experimenting with making software. Meits bought an FM-PAC at MK Public Domain with FAC Soundtracker 1.0. This got replaced by Soundtracker 2.0 and later on with Moonblaster 1.4. After recruting some other MSX people from the Neighborhood the development of the first music disk started and got released by MSX Club Friesland Noord. From this first music disk on Meits handled the music. He contributed to a hand full of music disks with MSX Club Friesland Noord, MSX Gebruikersgroep Friesland and Near Dark of which he is one of the founding members.
