I've just tried this loader in MSX-BASIC found in an old magazine (Micromanía) to get infinite time in Out Run but it doesn't seem to work:

perso.wanadoo.es/ivan.latorre/loaders/MSXLoader_OutRun.JPG

30 SCREEN 0:KEYOFF:COLOR 15,1,1:POKE &HFCAB,1
40 S=0:FOR N=&H85E0 TO &H85F3:READ A$:A=VAL("&H"+A$):S=S+A:POKE N,A:NEXT:IF S<>2303 THEN CLS:PRINT"ERROR IN THE DATA":END
50 LOCATE 1,21:INPUT "INFINITE TIME (Y/N) ";A$:IF A$="Y" THEN POKE &H85F3,1
60 CLS:LOCATE 9,12:PRINT"LOADING OUT RUN":BLOAD"CAS:":POKE &H9086,&HE0:POKE&H9087,&H85:DEFUSR=&H9000:A=USR(A)
100 DATA 3A,F3,85,A7,28,A,AF,32,84,8F,32,BC,97,32,41,9A,C3,85,A6,0

Does anyone know why it doesn't work? You can download it here.

Maybe there are two different versions of this game cassette? If you have some loading screen try to wind over it before running this program.

Ok, what you get if you type:

BLOAD"CAS:NOLOAD"

???

I've modified line 60 (to skip the loading screen) with:

60 CLS:LOCATE 9,12:PRINT"LOADING OUT RUN":BLOAD"CAS:out2b.bin":POKE &H9086,&HE0:POKE&H9087,&H85:DEFUSR=&H9000:A=USR(A)

But the MSX resets, any ideas?

Now I know what is your problem...

The version of Outrun you try to load is a cracked version made to be able to play this game from disk. Then someone has took this disk version and put it back to cassette. The loader is totally different, so you can't use this cheat. One of the differences is, that this version should be loaded with RUN"CAS:" but original with BLOAD"CAS:",R

I suggest that you convert your original Outrun tape to .CAS and try again. That is the most easy way.

A dump of the original tape released in the NL is already available on the internet (it was one of the tapes used to test castools), it should be available somewhere in a msx archive.

Thanks NYYRIKKI, I have used Google (Imágenes CAS de cintas MSX) and you are right, I was using the CAS file that is not from the original tape (Otra edición in that page)... Now I have used the other CAS image and works fine!

Right now I am testing how bad this game is. No end scenes if I remember well...

That loader for infinite time is useful to record the nice PSG tunes Smile

This game is SHIT. And I have come to the conclusion that it is impossible to finish unless you use cheats. I have completed Route A (with infinite time, of course) and in some parts of the last stage the road is even only one lane! And the worst things are that you have always to start again when you crash and that you can't overtake cars when there 's traffic in all the lanes. At least the Pony Canton MSX2 version is playable. This game needs desperately an OutRunDev'08! Smile

Btw, that listing in BASIC for infinite time only works in MSX1 machines.
