As long as your PC sports decent hardware and a reasonably recent version of Windows, theres a good chance of being able to run almost every game out there. This was of course not always the case, with, at times in decades past, dozens of competing and completely incompatible personal computing formats vying for the attention of the few people who could afford a computer and actually wanted one in their homes. Unfortunately, if you were buying into the promise of early personal computers and didnt choose one of the handful of leading platforms, or chose a platform that would soon be obsolete or orphaned, or even worse chose a platform that would never take off in the first place, you were pretty much stuck with an expensive doorstop. A revolutionary idea took shape in this chaotic personal computer environment of the 1. What if instead of releasing just another computer platform into an overcrowded marketplace, there was a set of well supported computer standards that would dictate software and hardware compatibility, regardless of manufacturer That the was the dream of the MSX, organized by the Japanese arm of Microsoft. It was an ambitious plan, and one that ultimately couldnt hold together for long. But for a while it worked, making the MSX the most popular Japanese PC ever outside its home country. A global standard. Although there were earlier attempts at a personal computer standard, including systems based around the CPM operating system, it was never comprehensive enough to include standards for hardware components. Of course, IBM PCs and Compatibles would eventually become a true standard, but through a good portion of the 1. As such, the June 2. MSX standard, which was the first to promise true hardware and software compatibility between any compliant computer model, seemed like a dynamite idea. Unfortunately, the announcement wasnt necessarily well timed, with the first systems based on the standard not finding their way to Japanese stores until later in the year, European stores in late 1. North American stores. It was in the USs bigger market where low end computing was in a particularly competitive price crunch. The capable and well established Commodore 6. Japanese systems were being made available. The Yamaha CX5. MII and its predecessor, the CX5. M, were the only major MSX computers to see wide release in the US. Unfortunately, for would be MSX fans in this territory, they were primarily marketed and sold as music computers in stores that specialized in music gear. The primary MSX drivers were Microsoft, who even then was looking to be both the catalyst and beneficiary of a near universal computing standard, and ASCII, a Japanese publishing company who helped create Microsofts first overseas sales office, ASCII Microsoft, in 1. Over a dozen other mostly Japanese companies participated in the standard, including electronics giants like Canon, Casio, Pioneer, Panasonic, and Sony. MSX Resource Center is the largest online MSX community website dedicated to the 8 bit MSX Computer System MSX, MSX2, MSX2, MSX turboR.

The base MSX specification was inspired by the technology found in Spectravideo SV 3. June 1. 98. 3. Although priced to sell and featuring competitive 1. Microsoft BASIC, Spectravideos computers soon joined the legion of low end computer systems that failed to gain a commercial foothold due to a dearth of compelling  software and the popularity of competing systems. These competing systems included the aforementioned Commodore 6. North America, and additional systems like the ZX Spectrum 1. Amstrad CPC 1. 98. Europe. A magazine ad for a Philips MSX2. And Mr. Fantasy. MSX1. The initial MSX specification now referred to colloquially as the MSX1, much like the original IBM PC, revolved around mostly proven, off the shelf components. The microprocessor was the 8 bit 3. MHz Zilog Z8. 0A, whose variations were found in a variety of earlier computers, including the TRS 8. ZX Spectrum. RAM started at 8. K, but systems eventually topped out at 1. K, although 6. 4K remained the most popular, bringing it to parity with the Commodore 6. The video chip was the 1. K TMS9. 91. 8, which supported a resolution of 2. Texas Instruments TI 9. Coleco Adam 1. 98. The Adam was basically a 6. K RAM version of the 1. K Coleco. Vision 1. While the TMS9. 91. This limitation would often result in slow or choppy scrolling performance, or require additional restrictions in the number of colors or on screen objects used. The audio and basic IO chip in the MSX1 was the General Instrument AY 3 8. Mattel Intellivision 1. Amstrad CPC series. While three channels of sound doesnt seem like much now, it was superior to many other systems of the time, including significantly more expensive Apple II and IBM PC computers. As such, despite being based on the technological foundations of a short lived Spectravideo computer series, the MSX standard was in good, well established company in terms of its core functionality. And it allowed for what were known as standardized optional extensions, allowing manufacturers to add their own enhancements as long as they didnt interfere with any of the core standards, creating an opportunity for at least some product differentiation in what was hoped would be a crowded MSX computer market. Early MSX games like Hudson Softs 1. Indian no Bouken aka An Indians Adventure had a similar look and feel to Coleco. Vision games thanks to their closely related architectures. In fact, today, games are regularly ported between MSX, Coleco. Vision, Sega SG 1. Memotech MTX 1. 98. Although American magazines of the time like Electronic Games and ComputeJapanese invasion, most editorial perspectives were relatively sober, acknowledging the many challenges such an initiative involved. In fact, from the initial 1. MSX computers were regularly being touted as coming right around the corner. Some journalists reported that the more serious manufacturers were still assessing the viability of ever even entering the US market, which ultimately proved true. With the Commodore 6. US market, and previously established Atari Atari 8 bit series, starting 1. Tandy Color Computer series, starting 1. And with a growing appetite for more expensive, but incredibly sophisticated 1. Apple Macintosh 1. Dragon Frame Serial Number here. Atari ST 1. 98. 5, and Commodore Amiga 1. PCs, the low end market would contract significantly as the latter part of the decade unfolded. Despite the sometimes indifferent reaction from the American press, one particular aspect of the MSX standard did receive consistent praise, MSX BASIC aka, Micro. Soft e. Xtended BASIC, where some have claimed the MSX moniker originated. MSX BASIC was an extension of Microsoft BASIC 4. BASICAGW BASIC, which was found on early IBM PCs and Compatibles. Besides featuring commands to access all of its sound and graphics features without resorting to the types of clumsy workarounds needed with other BASICs, MSX BASIC was consistently shown to be among the fastest of its contemporaries, including most Apple, IBM, Commodore, Tandy, and Atari computers. MSX BASIC is what you normally see on startup without a cartridge inserted, but on some systems, like the Sony HB 7. Install Nas On Iomega Storcenter Support there.
