Today a new msx has been added to the arsenal.
It is the SX1, a fpga msx made by 8bits4ever.

We have made a new 3d printed part for the philips msx. for the backslot of it to guide the cardrige in.

Darkstone has finished designing a component that will be used (among other components) for a much larger project Darkstone’s working on. This finished component is however already available for those interested. It’s an electric power converter that converts 9 volts to 200 volts, to light up nixietubes.

Nixietubes are vacuum tubes containing numbers or other characters which can be controlled by the user. Great components for DIY fans creating new and unique electronic devices! The voltage can be controlled with a potentiometer on the circuit board. It supports a maximum of 10 watts, which is enough for several nixietubes.

For 65 euros Darkstone can create one such circuit board for you, although this price can drop significantly when larger quantities are ordered.


Darkstone designed the new logo of the #msxdev compo. a fresh green/yellow logo! Check it out @ MSX-Banzai!.

Some time its just nice to do some tile art on a tms9928
