MSX to SMS Hacks
Post Posted: Tue Dec 13, 2016 1:41 am
These were done by using the various hacks that Taiwanese and Korean devs used for their MSX ports and swapping out a different MSX rom instead, as mentioned by nitrofurano in another thread.

First up, some Compile games. Rescue the princess in "Crusader", Shoot 'em up in "Final Justice", and clean some windows in "Swing".

I've edited the title screens so that they don't get mistaken for legit roms. Patches are for the corresponding MSX rom. Tested via Master Everdrive.

Would you be kind to add a [HACK] tag to every ROM filenames? (_including in the files above_)

It's been a huge amount of work categorizing Korean and Taiwanese dumps, they are countless variations and the original games are rare, I'm _not_ done yet. I would appreciate if those hacking efforts were very clearly avoiding extra confusion.!

For these conversions, I started using first 16ko from others games as Sky Jaguar.

Followed conversions of: Castle Excellent, Champion Boxing, Champion Kendou, Con-dori, David 2 (bad sound), Devil's Heaven, Did Duge, The Goonies, Gozira-Kun, Hustle Chummy, Hyper Olympic 1, Hyper Olympic 2, King's Valley 1, Konami's Baseball, Konami's Boxing, Konami's Golf, Konami's Mahjong Dojo (not sure if all control are ok), Konami's Soccer, Konami's Tennis, Lunar Ball (not sure if all control are ok), Midnight Brothers, Pac-Man, Q-bert.

Castle Excellent and David 2 are not working on real hardware, these conversions are working with the first 16ko of Road Fighter (TW) but not with the (KR) version.

Konami's Golf and Midnight Brothers don't have any header and bad checksum 'cause when I try to put them the games crash.

For games with bad controls try "Pooyan (KR)" as the base hack.

The MSX games in the "Hi-Com 8-in-1 The Best Game Collection"s probably has best compatibility for Konami games. Still, HiCom's MSX "driver" has a sound bug in some games (watch the demo in King's Valley HiCom Best Game Collection). Taiwanese King's Valley doesn't have that, but it uses the RAM adapter mentioned next.

"Magical Kid Wiz" seems to have better compatiblity with more advanced games, but it maps RAM to the Dahjee RAM adapter, so only works in emulation. Would require hacking it to use the SMS RAM on real hardware.

Xyzolog is unusual as it's 48kb with the middle 16kb empty and the MSX rom located at the last 16kb. That might help with some black screen games, although I'm not sure if the MSX header needs changing or not.

Edit: Most of your hacks aren't working on real hardware. I guess that you created them with the Taiwanese games which use the RAM adapter. I expect that these hacks are doing lots of stuff which isn't correctly emulated either.

Followed the conversions made with Pooyan (KR) first 16ko: D-Day, Exerion 1, Exerion 2, Indian no Bouken, Ninja Kage, Scramble Eggs, Sinbad, Yellow Submarine.

All rom have header with valid checksum, D-Day is not working on real hardware.

Checksum doesn't matter on Everdrive. All of those last ones work except D-Day, which doesn't run in Emulicious either. So probably down to using a less accurate emulator.

Edit: Ah yes, I see it works in Meka. I recommend testing with Emulicious.

Ok, thank you. I will update all my hacks (no more TW rom used for the 16ko code) and I will take time to put header with valid checksum for those who don't have an everdrive. = DONE

edit: Bosconian and MSX2SMS Hack #1 to 5 have been updated.

Games not working on real hardware are normally all noted.

I'm really curious to understand how this trick works... unfortunately I have zero knowledge about the MSX (well, I know it's Z80 based and that it has the same TMS chip, but that's it...).
Someone care to explain me how can a simple copy-paste of files create these wonders? :)

I guess that back in the day when people converted MSX games to SMS for the Korean and Taïwan market, they used a 16ko code that they add on the beginning of a game to convert it. As I know for now, the code is changing the controls, it make the pause button as reset and it probably handle the VDP and VRAM of the Master System. It would be indeed interesting to completely understand this 16ko code for maybe be able to adapt it on every games?

Games not working from batch 4;

Castle Excellent
Con-Dori
David 2
Devil's Heaven
Hustle Chumy

For games with garbled text (Becky, Pachicom etc) try using Alibaba as the base hack.

@sverx, the first part contains part of the MSX bios and presumably code to translate between MSX and SG-1000/SMS.

MSX BIOS? That would explain a lot. If the game interact with hardware just using BIOS calls, and those calls are simply RST or CALL opcodes into the first 16 KB area, it all boils down to having hardware specific instructions there...
Very interesting, thanks! :)

This is really neat thing you guys figured out!
It's just sad that the original msx palette isn't preserved in these games, but.. can't have everything!
p.s. did you try to convert Zanac? its an amazing game.

I tried reading something using Google translate, just to understand what was that about. Anyway here's a list of the MSX BIOS calls, so we can check if something is missing (or broken) in that 16 KB header block... which might lead to creating a 16 KB header that works with "everything".

Followed some conversions made with Alibaba: Becky, Choplifter, City Connection, Exoide-Z, Kick It, MSX Soccer, Pachicom, The Protector, Zanac.

I didn't put any header on MSX Soccer and The Protector 'cause it was making games crash. Other games have header with valid checksum.

The C_So! [MSX] (KR) hack doesn't work, it just sticks on the Joy Soft screen (same with the actual game). If it doesn't work in Emulicious, then it's unlikely to work on hardware.

That's too bad, C_So! have the best compatibility for conversion so far.

I hope that we will have one day a new everdivre with a mapper handling all Korean games, the current everdrive doesn't seem so great.

I don't know, but it does exactly the same on Emulicious as on real hardware via an Everdrive. Maybe you can debug it if you know how.

I think this is the problem with C SO!, but instead of mapping reset to pause, it maps it to start, so it just resets everytime. Unlike the other games, neither pause or reset buttons resets it. It probably doesn't have that effect on Korean/Japanese systems as they don't have a reset.

I disabled port 1 in software and the reset button started working again, so it looks like it's an IO issue on export SMS 1s. It might work on SMS 2s, but the only one I have with me isn't working.

Attaching the image. The paging is mismatched, and games bypassing the BIOS won't work, but otherwise it seems fairly straightforward to make a BIOS that'd be fairly compatible.

In fact I was wondering if those games which have problems it's because of a feature-incomplete BIOS or what. If that's the case, we might bake the missing functions into one of those BIOS 'headers' already available.
Also, it might be the case that some functions are present in some headers and some in others so it might turn into a cut&paste work.

I'd rather copy and paste code than binary blobs... Emulicious should make a decent job of disassembling them, especially if you write a helper program to invoke all the BIOS routines. Then you can pull them in as you wish. Adding a nice SMS Power splash screen would be nice too :)

The obvious other issue with these ports is the memory usage. That's probably why they target SMS and not SG, but even so you need the game to stay well under 8KB.

I think that some of the Taiwanese ones don't use a bios, the code is a lot more complex than the Korean ones. Those games probably didn't use the MSX bios in the first place.

Thank you for this topic ;)
Here a list of conversion I tried (only with Road Fighter TW 16 first ko).
Note that I'm not testing games of 128ko and over.
*3D Golf Simulation - High-speed Ed. (1984) (TandE Soft) (J) BAD
*3D Golf Simulation - Normal Ed. (1983) (TandE Soft) (J) BAD
(...)
*Zenji (1984) (Pony Cannon) (J) BAD
*Zexas Limited (1985) (dB-Soft) (J) BAD
*Zoom 909 (1985) (Pony Cannon) (J) OK


perhaps we should keep a collaborative updated online spreadsheet somewhere like at googledrive or somewhere else, so we could follow and control the whole progress? there might be other games to be added (like those exclusive to cassettes and floppies (except those zx-spectrum conversions i guess?) that somehow might be possible to get converted to rom files) - for now, for example, i can’t remember if Hudson’s Gangman, Driller Tanks and Bousou Tokkyuu SOS were released as rom - i think those recent indie msx games (like from msxdev contests) would be great trying to convert as well - what do you all think?

i can imagine (and thanks a lot indeed for what was done up to now, was a real surprise for me actually)... - but the idea is to have an idea of the conversion progress, since some are easier to convert, and some not that much (specially those cassette-based, that might need to be converted from ram dumps or decompiled - i really wished to be skilled enough for that, and all help there is really hugely appreciated, since it means a significant amount of titles available for sg1000/sms, that most people even imagined possible to play!!! ;) ) - i still believe that most of the msx1 games can be converted to sg1000/sms - the idea of sharing an etherpad-like online document is that everyone could contribute updating, i guess that could be useful

Maybe this will inspire some people to add an msx to their collection :) or at least an MSX emulator (for proper sound and colors) ;)

Just a friendly note: if you find a version of American Truck where the truck can only be controlled one direction, try to find the alternative version of the rom (google: msx tosec for everything)
Also, when doing an MSX emulator for FBAlpha project, me and friends played over a thousand MSX1 games, sometimes several times, to make sure they all worked right. We had to use alternative romsets for several different roms. If you have access to one of the huge EMU torrent portals with the FBAlpha collection, get it. Otherwise PM me and I can help you find it (~30 meg zip for just over 1000 working/tested games, lots of stuff not available on the net from deep in my collection)

best regards,

What would be the best way to play those that work on a Mark III? Tried a few on my Mega Drive with the Everdrive MD, but well the videomode... >_>
I'd suppose Master Everdrive, right?
