I just got much further with the English version a couple of minutes ago than I would've had with the Japanese version in the same amount of time. It's great to understand the story behind the game now.

Minor disadvantage though, in some demo texts the words are cut quite strange (if not incorrectly) and I wouldn't have minded the staff screens still in Japanese like in Xak 2.

Hehe, I managed to get somewhere on DISK 4 with the Japanese version. It was a hell of a job, but well worth it! Smile

I tried to copy the *.dsk to real MSX disk, so i can run IC on my MSX turbo-R, with diskmanager.
But it is not possible? Sad
Do anyone have any suggestions?

I've a feeling it doesn't matter what kind of MSX you have... Even on my FS-A1ST it's running damn slow... Sad
