Hello,
I own this game (https://www.generation-msx.nl/software/loriciels/echec/relea...) in cassette format with manual.
I didn't find the rom on the web.
I would like to know if it's an undumped game.
Thanks in advance.

It seems to be undumped indeed. if you are able to make a recording/dump: please feel free to contact me so I can make it available for the community.

I don't know if my cassette is working, and I don't have the hardware to dump it.

I will try to look someone who could dump it near where I live (France).

I scanned the cover and the manual: https://mega.nz/file/ugMTzYIZ#BW7vrZzKs_yM8P2Q9TQs1bvdzOx1tW...

If you can just get the recording in WAV format (or even better, several recordings) it's enough. If it's undumped, indeed it's quite interesting to preserve it! Smile

What's your hardware?

If you have a disk interface, you can start to save the BASIC part as following.

LOAD"CAS:
SAVE"ECHEC.BAS",A

Then you can view the program with a text editor. If the game is in a single binary file, you can easily see where it's loading up with the emulator debugger and dump it. Otherwise, it's more complicated. Making a wav may also be a simple solution provided you get the right sound level.

This game has been successfully digitized; it is preserved for posterity. Smile

The .CAS file can be found here: https://msxvillage.fr/upload/echec_loriciels.rar
And the cover & manual: https://mega.nz/file/f9EBxbjK#lz-7WSlLCxi4C4ym3Mu4bgdt9fZ_KS...

Thanks to Bigjim for sharing his legacy.

Thanks for this.
I will ask is it possible to have the WAV so it can be converted to TSX format for those that want it?
