Let’s Build Our Own Omega MSX 2 Computer – Part 1- Getting Started
Some members of the MSX community have designed an open source MSX 2 computer called the Omega, that can be assembled using reasonably easy to get components, along with a set of PCB’s.
Being a MSX fanatic and not afraid of a bit of soldering, I of course wanted to build one for myself and perhaps for some of my local mates.
PCBWay agreed to supply some boards sets for me to do a video series building the system, one of which I will be giving away in a competition during the series.
So this episode we have a bit of an intro explaining the project, and we get started with the single diode on the mainboard and the 1st lot of resistors.
