    Konami Code!


    Oh I remember when I first started with computers. I had this MSX box, a very nice 8bit 64K machine. There I learned MS-BASIC and MS-DOS. But the major thing with the MSX was gaming, and the better ones where made by Konami. Nowadays I still miss that, so much that I wrote my own MSX emulator in C#. In US the MSX is almost unknown but over Europe, Russia, down here in Brazil, and especially in Japan it was a hit. There is a lot of Konami codes in MSX games. Oh! I just remembered a cheat you could do: before you load your game you could type (in BASIC) poke &hfbb0,1 and then load your game and while it was running you could press Control+Esc and break the execution, then you could hack the memory to discover new cheat codes! Oh boy… now I just have to run my MSX emulator and play some 8bit cool game!
