You can save the basic file as ASCII file e.a. save"autoexec.bas",a
now you can open it with Notepad or any othe textfile editor.

Are you looking for any specific disk game ?

Hypersoft, I'm afraid I can't post any links here, but... check my profile and send me an e-mail. I can give you a link to a site that has disk-versions of almost every game (including from rom games), together with all the needed .BAS loaders.

Please note that as mentioned before that quite some of these cracks done quite badly. Some of these .BAS files will contain something like poke-1,170 or poke-1,255 which might crash your machine even before the game loads. The solution is quite simple though:
Load the .BAS file, replace the poke -1,xxx with poke-1,(15-peek(-1)\16)*17 and save the .bas file again. This should solve most problems. And always boot your MSX with the CTRL key pressed to make sure you have as much free memory as possible.

There's also an alternative which is onedrive.com which you can put in your autoexec.bas or .bat which does the same thing as keeping the CTRL button pressed, so you don't have to remember to do it everytime.

Badly hacked games tend to do that eternal spinning to some games. Depends a lot on which diskrom your computer has as well.

Again, the solution to this problem is in one of the threads I've linked to you before...
