Christmas season, peaceful and calm moments with family and friends. Of course, it is also a time for Christmas presents and this is when Mapax joins forces with two great MSX artists, the Spanish illustrator Roberto Álvarez (guantxip) and the well-known Japanese music composer Mstz80ax. They have both worked hard to make sure that this product would meet the MSX community expectations, a high-quality product by MSX lovers for MSX lovers. Together they have released this beautiful piece of art called Fond Memories for MSX2, a journey from past to present.

Would you like to travel through our history? Just a few beautiful images are enough to summarize our lives attached to our machines and even better if they are accompanied by MSX game music. This will delight everyone, for sure. Additionally, Mstz80ax composed a bunch of MSX-MUSIC + PSG tunes for the music player included. Don't miss it out! There was a huge work behind those compositions.

Finally, as a bonus, Mapax would like to share an animated Christmas demo-card for MSX turbo R and V9990. Again, with the help of Mstz80ax. We hope you enjoy it. Merry Christmas to you all!

I like Full Power showing blank BASIC screen. What is the interface connecting MIDI to ST?

It's connected to the Philips Music Module (MSX Audio).
The screen is PowerBasic from GFX9000.
He's thinking to change it for the Playsoniq. ;P

I love this special occasion MSX delivery! Really cool stuff. Cool

P.S. on openMSX a Panasonic turboR MSX can run this rom.

P.P.S. if it were that GFX9000 is not required I would try it on real hardware.

Hi Giangiacomo, the Fond Memories ROM is for MSX2. Only the Christmas card is for MSX turbo R + V9990.
