April 20th, 2002. Time for another edition of the international MSX Fair organized by the CGV. Again, the fair will be held in...

Wijkcentrum de Schans
De Schans 123
Tilburg Noord

Of course, the MSX Resource Center will be there. And as usual, we're trying to do something special. In past fairs we noticed that a lot of active users did not get an own booth anymore, because they could not arrange to be on the fair all day with their equipment. We thought that was a shame and tried to help them out. So we got a 9 meter long stand and offered people to show their products. Lets have a look at the action you can find at our stand:

  • Michiel de Vries will demonstrate the current version of Meridian, the MIDI-editor we reported about in our previous newsletter.
  • TeddyWarez will demonstrate and sell some 'old' TWZ-products. They will also present a new game called 'Guru Logic', based on a Gameboy Advance game by Compile.
  • Team Bomba will give a sneak preview of Bombaman, a Bomberman-game for MSX. Some keywords on how cool this game will get? Ok. Here we go: Singleplayer, Multiplayer, Moonsound, Bossmonsters, Level editor, Harddisk support, ...
  • Stephan Szarafinski will auction a large collection of Konami MSX games, including the extremely rare A1 Spirit. This racing game, based on F1-Spirit comes with a steering wheel!

Of course, a lot of other standholders will be there as well with their goodies, like Deltasoft with Xak 1 in English (at last), Sunrise with their usual range of hardware and software products, MCWF with MSX computers, hardware and cables, TNI with the Z380 version of the Gameboy Emulator and tniASM and Mariënberg with their MSX-networking device.

More than enough reasons to visit the fair if you're in the Netherlands. Come on over and have a chat with the MSX Resource Center crew and all those other MSX users.


There will be a second auction at the MSX Resource Center stand! At 15.00, Olivier Hustin will auction several collectors items, including a Panasonic FS-A1-ST MSX turboR computer. Stephan Szarafinski will start auctioning at 13.00. Also, the MSX Resource Center team will be selling some hard & software during the entire fair as well. First come, first gets. (is that English? )
