A member of ICMiri group who Gilberto received YAMAHA YM2413(OPLL) Chips from me! Soon, he will create new FM-PAK made in Italy!! Hehehe..

I sent many Yamaha YM2413 and V9958 Chips to Italy and Brazil. But my friend has still has stocks of:

Now, it is a good chance to repair your MSX! You must order before it will be sold out.

Always I wrote TRUE Japanese MSX news use via my MSX PRINT like MSXPLAYer, ASCII Corporation and Nishi etc.. But some people was not belive my new. Old time ago, people told me.. i.e.)

ASCII never join with MSX market! IF your news is true, why ASCII doesnot announcement of it on their homepage?
Really ASCII will make Emualtor? Already we are waitting long time! etc..

But LOOK! ASCII come back to MSX and MSX Association made MSXPLAYer! My news was true!!

I wrote about sales ranking of MSX MAGAZINE The permanent issue and Happy!! MSX Emulator and Games at book store. MSX MAGAZINE The permanent issue is getting top position of sales ranking of book store! And Happy!! MSX Emulator & Games is getting 2nd position of sales ranking at book store!!! It is true!!!! But European people isnot belive my news. It is a pitty!!!!! I think European people is distrustful. This time, I take photo of sales ranking at book store use via my camera build in wireless phone. Photo of quality are very bad. Photo size are NOT big. Please zoom up yourself!

[photo1] Look! You can look MSX MAGAZINE with "1st" logo. And you can look "2nd" logo with Happy!! MSX Emulator & Games!
[photo2] Book?s sales ranking in this store.
[photo3] Happy!! MSX Emulator & Games in store now!
[photo4] Book store is selling MSX books! This is NOT dream!
[photo5] Foto inside of book store. MSX MAGAZINE and Happy!! MSX Emulator & Games are good sales more than these many books!

Online book stores like Amazon.co.jp doesnot sell many "Happy!! MSX Emulator & Games". Because SHUWA SYSTEM co.,ltd hasnot strong power for online book stores. And online book store doesnot buy many "Happy!! MSX Emulator & Games" from SHUWA SYSTEM co.,ltd. And Online book stores doesnot sell many "Happy!! MSX Emulator & Games" for people. European people cannot get real sales ranking of book store from sales ranking at online book stores!

ASCII Publishing sold out 25000 MSX MAGAZINE. Congraturation! They are not have stock of MSX MAGAZINE to sell. But more people want buy MSX MAGAZINE! ASCII Publishing will print again more 8000 MSX MAGAZINE!! Wow!!!

SHUWA SYSTEM co.,ldt print 2000 Happy!! MSX Emulator & Games. But it was sold out soon. And SHUWA SYSTEM print again 3000 Happy!! MSX Emulator & Games. But it was sold out again! They were surprised this big sales! SHUWA SYSTEM print again 5000 Happy!! MSX Emulator & Games. Yes, SYUWA SYSTEM printed total 10000 books! It is the most big sales in history of SHUWA SYSTEM. Hahaha!

ASCII Publishing and SHUWA SYSTEM make a decide of more new book of MSX. Yes, we can buy MSX MAGAZINE next issue and Happy!! MSX Emulator & Games 2! Congraturation!!

European people calling "!MSX MAGAZINE 2003". But why European people calling "2003"? MSX MAGAZINE 2003 isnot good name. Because you cannot find "2003" from cover of MSX MAGAZINE. True Japanese name of MSX MAGAZINE is "MSX MAGAZINE Eikyu hozon ban". I thknk that English name is:

Eikyu : Permanent(ly)
Hozon : Prservation, Preserve or Keep
Ban : Issue or Version

Now, I am calling "MSX MAGAZINE The permant preservation issue. But I know that my English is NOT good. I hope that someone will fix if it is NOT good name.

About name of Happy!! MSX Emulator & Games. Some people told me that Happy!! MSX Emulator and Games is NOT good name. Because Japanese name name of Happy!! MSX Emulator & Games is Tanoshii!! MSX Emulator & Games. Mean of Tanoshii is:

Playable Enjoy Enjoyable Fun

So, Enjoy!! MSX Emulator & Games are good name more than Happy!! MSX Emulator & Games. But it is NOT true. Okay, this time I write you why Happy is good name more than Enjoy, Enjoyable and Playable etc..

Publishing company of this book is calling "Tanoshii!! MSX Emulator & Games". This name is strange for almost Japanese people. Yes, it is on purpose. Happy!! is also strange for people more than Enjoy, Playable and Fun etc.. Happy!! MSX Emulator and Games is strange name for people. Yes, it is on purpose. It is same nuance. Do you understand now?

MSX Forever!
