Hi guys,

Does anybody know if a saved data from Hydlide 3 msx1 would work for the msx2 version?
Thanks!

Yes,you can.A save data of Hydlide3 is common to MSX1 and MSX2.So you can use a MSX1 save data on MSX2 and vice-versa.

Tokihiro Naito,programmer of Hydlide series,said that the sturcutre of save data of Hydlide3 is the same among defferent platforms;MSX2,MSX1 and PC-88.He suggested that a MSX save data may work on PC-88 if you can load it on PC-88.

Arigatou Fukenko!

Great info; do you think that could be true too for the sega megadrive version "super hydlide"?

You are welcome!

Probably can not.Megadrive version is ported by another developer;not by T&E.So I think that there is no data compatibility between MSX and Megadrive.

@benedick:
Sorry! I overwrote my comment on your one by mistake!
I recovered your original comment as far as I can remember.

Cool to know that the save data is compatible. Do you happen to know what would happen if you were to use the pc-88 data on MSX, seeing there are some extra items in it the MSX versions don't have like Mysterious Coral and a Holy grail. Or are these items only in the pc-98 version?

Sorry to late reply.Maybe it may cause buggy behavior.PC-98 version is "Special Version" so there may be some difference between MSX save data and PC-98's one.

I confirm pac saves are compatible between msx1 version of the game and msx2 version. I had the msx2 version back in the day, I thought it had sram inside like xanadu because of the part see through cartridge looking special, but it was only saving because I had a fmpac in the other slot...
Now I got to try the msx1 version, it is amazing for a msx1 game. It even scrolls between the screens (msx2 just flips screens). I think the opening sequence could be better like the msx2 version though.

The PAC saves can also be used in a game I think is called VS Hydlide, that is on one of the T&E disk magazines. In it you can have different Hydlide characters battle it out against eachother.
