Meetup #23 – 2021-12-18

We closed out 2021 with out final meetup for the year. Sean arrived first but didn’t bring a computer, just a kanji ROM card and an FM sound card. He was waiting for Curt to bring the FM-7 that he’d purchased on Sean’s behalf. After the failure of bringing a non-working FM sound card last time, it was great to have a working one on hand this time. However, it seems no photos were taken of the FM-7, just the floppy disks that came with it, including this Sesame Street disk!

Tom brought along a nice selection of MSX games, a mix of classics and homebrews. The Sanyo SPC PHC-30 stored in the locker got quite a bit of use this time, as did his own Panasonic FS-A1FX. Curt also got to try his MSX2 game, The Cockpit, as he doesn’t have an MSX2 at home, just a dozen MSX1s.

Sven brought in his Commodore 64 Reloaded, but forgot to bring the correct power adapter, and his WonderSwan, hoping to come up with a way to make the screen brighter, but that didn’t pan out, either.

Michelle brought in her NES to have the RF adapter desoldered, and a Famicom Jr. for game play. The games were all NES but she brought an adapter for Famicom use.

Besides Sean’s FM-7, Curt also brought in his cute little PC-8201, which is awesome because it’s red, and it also has an excellent keyboard for such a compact device.

Thanks to all for the good times and see you next year!
