it's OK now with the half version
I try 16ko an 32Ko Games (8 games) on my Master System
Eggerland an Rambo doesn't work


I hope to quickly see the version with the audio


Is it planned to run MEGAROMS (128Ko, 256Ko, 512Ko) ?

Hello again, I was waiting patiently for Eggerland Mystery, and after all those init ROM boots, you might need to fast forward, it actually shows it's title.

MSX to SMS Hacks
Post Posted: Sun Nov 08, 2020 7:18 am
I would like to see the following MSX1 games get a SMS port via this thread.

    1. Antarctic Adventure - Konami
    2. Bomberman Special - Hudson Soft/Konami
    3. Donkey Kong - You-Know-Who
    4. Nemesis 3: Eve Of Destruction - Konami
    5. Metal Gear - Konami
    6. Jet Set Willy - Hudson Soft (Unless it's a port of the ZX Specturm Version.)
    7. Salamander: Operation X - Konami (Please include the Venom level.)
    8. Parodius: Tako Saves The Earth - Konami
    9. A re-port of Nemesis 2.

    (use FM to replace the missing SCC channels.)

I did do Antarctic Adventure, I might need to do the controls and sound though. Metal Gear is a MSX2 game, we will see if we can get MSX2 games in the future, there was two Taiwanese companies that did Bomber Man Special, Donkey Kong from gdx or Ocean, it's not possible. Nemesis 3, I might have to see that, Salamander, might see too, Jet Set Willy, I can get this to work on SMS, but I will fix it, Parodius, might be possible, and Nemesis 2, by Zemina, but music is a horrible job. I will check these games out, also, I think it might be a good idea to convert SCC to FM.

For Salamander: Operation X you might first need to follow the SalaGra instructions, refer to this msx.org thread: https://www.msx.org/forum/msx-talk/software/how-to-patch-the-salamander-rom-to-h...

That's because Salamander uses slot selection to actually load content from Gradius in the other slot at runtime

I will try my best to see if I can take a source to any MSX to SMS loader code and get the audio part.

I somewhat got sound to work, but it's more like noise. I'm taking some lessons on how to change ports.

When I changed the sound ports from last time, it does work, but sounds really off tune. The SN76489, however, mimics the AY-3-8910 at some moments like Bomber Man (NOT THE SPECIAL VERSION). It's crash waves sound like it is familiar with the AY crash. Even for Bosconian, where you get a perfect line saying, Blast Off! I will let you guys know any further notice.

UPDATE:
I have updated the MSX emulator, using the code that was used in most SG / SMS games. Also, surprising news. If your game is having trouble playing on your system, it might be because you must merge the MSX at the very end of the emulator. I tested it with High Way Star, and it worked. It must be used with the full 32kB BIOS.

Has there ever been a version of Tapper on the master system?

I read on an MSX forum that someone has converted to that from Colecovision, so wondered if it's then possible to jump again to SMS?

https://www.msx.org/news/software/en/tapper-coleco-conversion

I used to love that game when i had a coleco, it's surprising that it never reached the SMS back in the day, or at least I don't remember seeing it.

Hmmmm..... Expecting that this is ColecoVision, I will do a conversion of my own.

That would be amazing if it's something you can manage to get running on the MS!

I tried a game called Snake-It. Basically, it's just frozen, but! I did get to manage the opening voice from AY-3-8910 to SN76489 emulation to get it working.

I've done Frogger, sorry it took a long time. I had other games to test. Just note that keyboard emulation works on Gearsystem (either played on iOS or played on RetroArch).
Also, I've done a AY-3-8910 to SN76489 speech mod for Kick It.

Another tip:
If games like Boomerang does not work, try duplicating it 2 times.
As you notice, there is bytes, "10 80"
This means the game starts at 8010. Other bytes might be different.
This works with the Korean loaders and Taiwanese loaders.

Hey, guess what? I just figured out a way to make Guardic play on the SMS. This is only on my C-BIOS emulator, but I will create a port with better music.

GUYS!
Good news, I just found a method for VDP and controller thing inside Joy Soft's source, and now, Antarctic Adventure for once is playable!
Here you go.
Use up for 1 (Joystick).
Use down for 2 (Keyboard / Begins to be glitchy).
