Cool, how did you learn about the secret Magic-Key? And very nice Canon MSX that you have

The other day, I wrote that I think that Magic-Key can only be used with Gall Force, but I found that it works with different software.

http://idadada.web.fc2.com/msxwaza/msxwaza.htm

The following MSX2 software can use Magic-Key.
No.1 Family Boxing
 You can change the boxer's abilities by pressing "GRPH" on the title screen.
No.2 jansei
 You can set the characteristics of the enemy by moving the cursor to "Actual Battle" on the menu screen and pressing "ESC" and "SELECT".

P.S. you tried to insert images from local drive and this is of course not supported, but you can upload images to msx.pics and then insert the URL path of published image

Wow! This gives me fond memories of the times when we had to read about all the cartridge combinations Konami implemented. Did the secret magic key do anything special on these games?

Thanks for the ips fix!

Btw, is Gall Force the only game that can use the magical key? or are there more HAL games that can use it?

It turns out that it can be used with two new MSX2 games.

No.3 Kiki-Kaikai
No.4 Replicart

In both cases, just press the "GRPH" key on the title screen.

I tried it on 24 games (excluding 3 already known) released by Sony and HAL Laboratory from 1985 to 1989.
In the end, only two were found.

For the time being, I uploaded the image to "msx-pics" that Mr. Pencioner taught me.

Please have a look.

If possible, would you please upload these two games as they were uploaded to GenMSX yesterday?

Topics like this make me smile. It has a proper old school feel to it. I even like the fact it hasn't been for sale, but only has been available with giveaways. I just wonder, have any original keys survived? Are there any pics available?

Anyway, I've ordered a solderless DB9 connector on Aliexpress and I will make one myself. I promise, if I ever make a game of my own I will support this little thingy. Cool
