A Philips NMS 8245 MSX2 expanded with extra memory and with FM PAC built in. In combination with a Megaflashrom SD SCC+. My configuration;

Recently added to my configuration (not added to my website yet) is a GR8NET cartridge!

Somewhat sad to say, Sad most MSXing is done through openMSX these days. Simply can't beat the convenience + flexibility factor. Not to mention debugging options.

When I use real hardware, it's usually my 1chipMSX. Runs 99+ % of what I throw at it (and more importantly: the software that I'm interested in), and has so many goodies built in that I rarely feel an urge to grab another MSX machine.

But I like having options, so at least a few of those other MSX machines aren't going anywhere... Big smile

Like RetroTechie my workhorse MSX is the OCM (1chipMSX). I also take it for most of the retro computer meetings I am visiting, as it's very mobile Smile My most used expansions are MegaflashromSCC+SD, GFX9000, Denyonet, MP3MSX and GR8NET.
#2 is the TurboR of course and #3 is the Philips NMS8280. All these three great Z80 machines are on my desk and always ready for action.

I just sold my beloved A1GT as I needed a considerable amount of cash in a really short amount of time... and I sold almost everything I had MSX related... But I still have a Terasic DE-1, so I'm planning to use it alongside a OPL4 and a V9990 cartridge and openMSX.

I will build that cartridge, joystick and PS2 mouse breakout, but I'm thinking in what other cool things I could add to it... (I have some msx related chips lying around, but the only thing I think it isn't supported by DE-1 implementation of OCM is the RTC)

Currently, my most used MSX is OpenMSX because I am heavily running the compiler on it. Set speed 800 is a blessing.

For most speed:
- set maxframeskip 100
- use F9 to get speed Smile (toggles as-fas-as-possible emulation)

I own a MSX Expert Gradiente converted to MSX2 with a DDX Kit. Connected to him i have a IDEMapper From Tecnobytes, a FM-PAC and a MEGARAM expansion with 256KB, both from DDX.

I bought this computer in 1989 and it stills works!
