The MSX is finally finding its ways to the Open Source world. First with many games, then with a few shy hardware projects, and now with this massively important endeavor that, if successful, can help reshape the landscape of game design for the platform.
Up to a multi-use, multi-ROM, fully programmable by users MSX cartridge?
The MSX Unimapper is a cartridge platform for MSX computers that separately supports 4 different mappers and allows to launch software and game ROMs up to 512kb on any compatible MSX system. The mappers are emulated by 2 or 3 programmable logic (PLD) GAL22V10 chips. Each mapper requires its own firmware to be programmed into the PLDs. The cartridge platform includes 2 different variants of the same cartridge.
The new DC-DC mini power adapter board is a PCB that extends the OMEGA power supply system allowing users to improve the equipment by provide better power capacity for additional hardware and expansion cards.

Years ago, B@ASS reproduced the schematics of the 80 Column Cartridge by EPCOM. At that time he also modified the design to improve it. A beautiful legacy project worthwhile preserving.
The Gradiente Expert Plus and DD-Plus are a Brazilian MSX 1 computer composed of two parts: the main unit and the keyboard. As many Brazilian products, no technical manual was officially released describing the board switches and jumpers, which B@SS MSX covers in this article.
In Brazil, a company called Gradient released a few cloned versions of the MSX. The first version was a gray version called Expert, and it had two releases: 1.0 and 1.1. However, when it was the time to release the MSX 2.0, for some reason Gradient stepped back with its plans and released the MSX Plus and DD-Plus as MSX 1 version with only few enhancements, being the DD-Plus a release with a 3 1/2 drive embedded in the cabinet.
