Thanks for the love for the Japan-only systems, Barry. They're great but the Japanese emulators are often incomprehensible. Being able to play the X68000 games in MESS is much handier, and it'll be nice to have FM Towns going eventually too smile

I will be in Japan from October to February, and I could try to look for some missing systems (from the miss list in the wiki) there... I can't promise anything though

A lot of the missing ones are probably pretty obscure, but I'd love to see some of these: Bandai Supervision 8000 (1979) and games, more games for Gakken TV Boy Compact Vision (1983), My Vision (Nichibutsu, 1983) and games, Casio PV-1000 (1983) and games, and missing stuff for Epoch Cassette Vision and Super Cassette Vision. That's a quick list, so I could come up with some more details if you have questions.

Also any of the epson HC-xx, PC-xx or QC-xx systems.
(released in europe and us as HX-xx (i.e. hx-20) PX-xx and QX-xx (i.e. QX-10))

I agree. For Epoch Cassette Vision as example, I found only one game (Wheelie Racer [d1].scv) in internet, but no dumped bios. Maybe someone can ask Takeda Toshiya, not sure he will help ?

OK, I noted that down and will look for those.

I'm personally interested in getting an FM-Towns and maybe an X68000 as well (for my own collection), are there any specific models of those that I should keep an eye out for? Anything that's needed? (although I doubt that they will be available in such an abundance that I can cherry-pick what I want... I'll probably take what I can get ;-)

An X68000 Super or an X68000 XVI (or later) would be useful, as these have a built-in SCSI controller that we need a ROM dump from (should be possible in software, just got to transfer it somehow once read)

I increment with the following systems:

-PV2000 (computer)
-Bit Corp. Gamate
-Tomy Kiss site
-Bandai Telebiko
-Nintendo Super Famicom Satellaview

And, of course, i'm assuming that this part of the wiki is updated :p

Probably not coincidence that that's the cart I sent Guru. smile I sent an email to Takeda Toshiya once, but no response. Maybe someone else could try, especially someone in Japan. We are looking at duplicating a lot of work that's already been done collecting and dumping games, because the dumps just don't seem to be available.
