OK, put my name down for one please. Sounds like an interesting system.

I wasn't questioning the profit, I was merely looking at the components and the costs of boards that size and wondering how it could cost so little.

Re: MFX mass-storage add-on

I'm surprised that you can do it so cheaply.

Re: Latest on C dev for the MTX SDCC etc,

I guess that the most useful library would, like BASIC, abstract the hardware into simple function calls to control, for example the VDP or sound chip. Maybe also give access to the low-level function calls too in case people want to hit the hardware directly. Another useful function could be the ab...

Re: Latest on C dev for the MTX SDCC etc,

Looking at the code, I doubt a lot of it would be useful. It's doing a lot of hand-off to MSX-DOS. Some of the files specify that the library as written doesn't work with the BASIC ROM, only MSX-DOS. Also, a great deal of it is purely for the sound stuff, and MSX uses an AY chip, which is very diffe...

I couldn't get it to fit into my MTX's expansion socket :D
Hmm.. a 486 co-processor add-on for the Memotech. That would be fun.

Could this be THE Dave Stevenson?

I just bought a 486DX2-66 "Overdrive" processor off eBay and when it arrived the From: address seemed very familiar...

Dave Stevenson and the address included a road name containing "Primrosebank". :D
