Please, give me an advice. I found a demo of Bad Apple at https://www.file-hunter.com/.
I have seen this demo on several platforms (Atari, Commodore) but not on MSX.
Maybe I was looking wrong.
The archive contains the BADAPPLE.IMG, BADAPPLE.OBJ and VIEW.BAS files
Can anyone advise me how to play this demo on real MSX.
So if it works?
I'm a beginner at MSX.
Alternatively, you can get a demo somewhere that can be played on MSX.
So far, I've only seen videos on Youtube.
I have an MSX SX1 that has an SD card.

Thank you for the advice.
Jack

You could download Disk-Manager:
http://www.lexlechz.at/en/software/DiskMgr.html
and put those three files on a disk image.
Load that disk image into your MSX and type
RUN "VIEW.BAS

And yes, there actually are several versions of Bad Apple on MSX, the most impressive being this one:

but there's also this:

Thanks for the advice, of course I wanted to put it on the card and use RUN "VIEW.BAS to turn it on.
The problem is that the BADAPPLE.IMG file has 80Mb :-)
So I ask if there is a way to display it on real MSX?

It probably sounds silly, but I don't have an account on https://twitter.com/ or facobook.com :-(

You can view the video on Twitter without an account, right?

You need an ESE SDisk or MegaFlashROM SCC+ SD (updated). These are the only devices capables of playing that demo.

I don't have a problem, upload it to the SD card and view it in SX1, it even goes with the help of SofaRun to run the VIEW.BAS file, but it ends with an ERROR 3 error - which I don't know what that means.
I was wondering if someone tested this demo from the mentioned website and wouldn't advise me how to do it?
I can watch the video on the web, but I would like to see this demo on a real computer.

Edit: Oh, I read what ESE SDisk is and it's clear to me.
And another version of this demo that goes on normal MSX is not downloadable?

But this demo is only compatible with MFR or can be executed in any flash cartridge?

I don't have a MFR and could not run it using SD and USB mappers.
