Okay, after swapping out the select options for a list of list-group-item links, and using some more #flexbox goodness, I think https://fixato.org/music/player/msx-related.html works a lot better on mobile as well now. :D
So, I made a thing.
In a forum topic about #MSX #music arrangements on the net, people had been collecting links to various songs; mostly on #SoundCloud and #YouTube.
I wanted to listen to them without having to switch between those sites, so I created https://fixato.org/music/player/msx-related.html which tosses them all in a playlist, and switches between SC's and YT's embed clients when appropriate.
It can auto-advance, so I can now put this playlist on in the background and listen to those lovely #chiptunes!
An interesting introduction to the #MSX platform that covers the #MSX1, #MSX2, #MSX2Plus and #MSXTurboR: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFRf87SqWrw
It's refreshing to see one of these videos covering this #80s #8bit #homeComputer platform for which I have quite some #nostalgia, and not just focus on the crappy #ZXSpectrum ports and games without smooth scrolling, and instead highlights the high quality releases, excellent #homebrew, hardware extensions and even patches that add #smoothScrolling to existing #games.
A couple of other old #MSX / #MSX2 #homecomputer #adverts:
A #Dutch old #Dixons advert with a #Philips #NMS8250 #MSX2 #homeComputer on offer for 999,- Dutch #Guilders at the time.
re-recording an #MSX video in #OBS rather than having #openMSX dump the pixels directly to a #ZMBV video file.
I need the post-processing that the #emulator does, because drawn pixel graphics just look horrible without the #scanlines and other #CRT like filters.
Might need to redo the video completely anyway, as for some reason this isn't an accurate reverse replay. I suspect the disk interaction caused my clicks to go out of sync, as a file-delete wasn't in my original interactions...
System: MSX2/2+/turbo R
Memory: 128 Kb minimum
Music: MSX Music and/or MSX Audio
Format: 2048Kb MegaROM with S-Ram
According to #DanielVik's video description:
«This is dvik&joyrex first MSX1 #megaDemo production and revolutionised the MSX #demoscene with effects such as 105 color images, border scrollers and copper bars, all unseen on the MSX1 demo scene. Recorded in #blueMSX"»
When I create a #ToolAssisted #LongPlay video, I usually just play the game, use the reverse feature to rewind mistakes as I go (more versatile than savestates), go back to frame 0, start the recording, disable the speed throttle, and then do something else while it records, and hopefully remember to stop it when the replay ends.
I usually forget...
I grew up with an #MSX2, and so the #ZXSpectrum brings inferior graphics to mind, probably based on the lazy #MSX ports I've played.
However, this new #ZXSpectrumNext machine sure looks slick: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckYN_TwbGiQ
It's beautifully designed and made, expandable, and comes with a metric tonnes of built-in hardware support and games.
I hope the MSX will some day get such a neat, officially supported, device.
Finally managed to upload another #MSX #gameplay video to my #YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=38X40zoiwuc
Felt like playing some #SweetAcorn, a game developed by #Taito Corp in #1984 for the MSX #8bit #homecomputer.
