In their last editions, MSX-Magazine published a lot of beautiful pixel art, mostly on their CG-Machine section. Like the images featured next in this post, amongst many others.

Were those images ever published as files? Where? It would be terribly sad if they were lost forever and condemned to fade away in paper pages and poor quality scans, without ever being displayed on a real MSX computer again.

I'd guess they were available on the floppy discs that sometimes came together with the magazines. I'm sure MSX-FAN had those (and I've seen them), but I really don't remember about MSX-Magazine. :/

I just stumbled on a making of for the 1st image of this thread, and decided to share it here too.

I'm now curating a pixel art collection of images for the MSX/2/2+/TR computers, that when finished will be published for everyone to enjoy.

If you wish to help and have such files, please send them to me. Smile

My e-mail is sdsnatcheralpha at that big e-mail service from google.

Man, that VideoGameDensetsu blog has quite some posts with MSX-related (concept) art!

Any progress on your pixel art curation project btw sd_snatcher? :)

Cool, I see that you've released your preservation collection :)

Btw, I've fixed missing 'r' in 'preservation' in the news post, but I saw it's also present on your website. :)

Yes, finally I could release it. Smile

As you can see, I could find the originals of some of the images from this thread, and included them in the collection.

Sorry if I missed your previous reply, but the Graphics and Music board isn't showing in the "latest forum posts". The only way to know that a reply was posted is to scan the threads manually.

Maybe it's better to post reactions there in the news post until the issue with the board is fixed.
