No, it doesn't look like Music MOdule. MM is much bigger. It looks like the other Micro Techology cartridges like MT-Base.
and there is no reason why there would be a sound chip in a bingo cart!

Anyway, the "Holland" on it is not because of the VG 8020 (as the page suggests), but most likely just because of the "HOlland BIngo" company name, an originally DUtch company.

I think SRAM is indeed a likely candidate though, it would also explain the weight if this SRAM is battery powered.

Alexey Podrezov was the one with Yamaha MSX computers. He had just made new version of Caslink.

Bingo machine ROMs are still in my compact flash card and that card is still in party place. Stt has a copy as well.

I also think, that the MT-cartridge has S-RAM. There was something connected to I/O port #30. Lot more info, pictures etc. will follow when I get all the stuff away from the party place. It keeps my hands full at the moment.

Finland + russian MSX = Alexey Podrezov, that was simple.
So, now we have at least 3 cassette utils - Caslink, WAVeR and MicroWAVer, each of them keeps evolving.
The only thing I miss is Yamaha MSX2 network emulation that will make possible connecting emulated MSX on PC with real MSX via msx-link device, designed by tnt23.

BTW, sorry for the offtopic.

Nice page! But the Norwegian word TREKK does not mean PRESS, it means something like PULL. I guess it generates another new random number.

That's exactly what it does. This is just a great machine, it's a real shame that i have to keep it in a closet because i don't have any space for it. It should be on display mounted on a wall or something. Cool
