Diskmagazine released by the MSX GebruikersGroep Nijmegen on a single sided disk in October 1989.

It was provided for free to the disk subscribers of MSX Club Magazine 26.


  • all the DOC files are plain ASCII text files
  • this magazine has a settings menu with still more options
  • it uses CompileBGM BASIC
  • the PSG/FM music is optional except on the intro
  • by using several times "Muziek aan" on the menu, you can hear another music
  • changes required in AUTOEXEC.BAS for a better compatibility:
    • line 10 should begin with SCREEN 0: IF PEEK(&H2D)>0
    • line 40 should begin with IF PEEK(&H2D)=0


The intro is made with a STP file for Dynamic Publisher. This intro is skipped on MSX1 computers.
