[MSX] MSX Resource Center

Hi!

Ok, taking into account I have been a victim of MRC hypocrite policy myself,
I can't help but support GuyveR800.
I have been a MSX user for decades, but just because I decided to port MSX
games for the ColecoVision videogame console, MRC started to attack my
projects on every possible occasion (in addition to insinuating legal
actions against me). The strange thing is those same guys keep praising
projects like Bombaman (an obvious port of Bomberman, even with the same
graphics) and ports of SG1000 games for the MSX (even keeping the original,
copyrighted names). It's obvious to me there is a case of two weights two
measures here.
So I must agree when GuyveR800 says MRC is a hypocrite and elitist group.
IMHO MRC is more interested on protecting the interest of groups like MSX
Association and Japanese softhouses then their fellows MSX users. Just my
two cents...

Eduardo
