Diskmagazine released in October 1991 by MSX Club Gouda and the FCS team


  • a new intro appears on this diskmagazine, it will be used too for the next normal editions
  • a fake reset and a strange Jack's BASIC precede the hardware report and a Jake's picture on a scale

This edition comes with musics in the FAC Soundtracker 2 format used in the intro and the magazine part. When both MSX-AUDIO and MSX-MUSIC soundchips are present, MSX-AUDIO is automatically selected.

You can optionally put these files on a dedicated FAC Soundtracker 2 music disk.

Important! You need to modify the names to use the correct extensions (MUS/SM1/SM2), it is also recommended to specify the name of the drumkit (without the extension) in the MUS file.

For more tips about this format, check the FAC Music Disk 3 Wiki page, especially to play the songs on MSX1.

Note: the FCSINTRO.MUS file is hidden in the sectors, you need to extract it and adapt it.
