Both tools are very useful!
But there's a problem: they not run on Win98... Sad
What can I do?

I'm sorry to be a nitpick about this, but I do wonder what ASCII and/or MSX-Association think about this. IIRC it's not exactly what they'd wish for... being able to play illegal dumps or something...

When I was in Japan I demonstrated quite a lot of software on MSXPLAYer using a Virtual Floppy Drive, as my notebook doesn't have a diskdrive. Yokoi and Nishi didn't seem to mind Wink. Needless to say the software I demo-ed was legal. ^_^
