Amazing work , Victor!! I don't believe such performance in MSX2 at 3.56Mhz. Its incredible! The color are like the arcade one... Now we can think Konami doesnt optimize to the limit!

Thank you very much Victor for your excellent work and your time and dedication!!! If I dont see never can believe it!

It is SUCH an improvement! I have no idea how much time it took you to figure out the mechanics and how to fix it. And you did it for 9938 too! It gives justice to the first MSX specific VDP and the MSX2 capabilities. It's been long awaited and sure it would have been done before if it were easy: so bravo, you did it! What groups like Kralizec or XL2S produce really is an achievement, but this is definitely another way to achieve something great. Many will know how to appreciate the value of what people like you do. Cheers Running Naked in a Field of Flowers

Looks very impressive. Got it to work in WebMSX, but I don't get the voiceset in WebMSX...

Solved... Need 2nd SCC cartridge, so loading the same .ROM file twice does the trick.,..

For the lazy people here, you can play this great version here:
