MSX AREA, the only Spanish MSX paper magazine nowadays, will release the sixth issue on the 20th of December at the 46th MSX RU. As usual, coinciding with the 2nd annual MSX meeting in Barcelona, they have prepared a great full color magazine for our enjoyment. The problem is that this publication is written in Spanish language only.

For those unable to attend the event, the magazine will be available after the meeting. For further information, please visit the MSX AREA website and contact them.

The problem is that this publication is written in Spanish language only.

It's not a problem per se, it only means that the Spanish reading people can enjoy it more than all the other poor people that can only view the pretty pictures Smile

I'm amazed that people today still put so much effort in a paper magazine! Kudos!

Indeed Manuel, but pity it's for a select group of readers...

That should not be a problem.
Did not buy Japanese magazines even without understanding them?

I was wondering whether Danger Tower's map is the one from MSX Solutions.

Hello only_69,

Danger Tower's map isn´t the one from MSX Solutions. Not even knew that in August this year Msx Solutions published the map. I just saw!!
The Map in MSX Area was made for user "Kabish" specifically for the magazine two years ago!!

Msx Area ALWAYS contains originals articles. Maybe if I get to know, would have done another map :/

If they release the magazine digitally in pdf, you could also translate it automatically. Sure, the translation quality wouldn't be great, but for the translation quality wouldn't be excellent, but the most of it would be understandable.

Yes, there is a risk of it being shared without paying, but if it's released digitally after the fair/meeting, I doubt it would have any negative impact on the sales of the printed version. If sold through a webstore, it could even generate some extra cashflow.
