I can't understand how I can load a second executable from a program already running under MSX-DOS.
A concrete case:
I want to make a game intro, which will then load the game.

How to proceed ?

Thank you for your answers.

The execl command of MSX-C does that. I think the set includes the source code, so you could take it a look.
In DOS2, we have some advantages like 3.76 and 3.77:

I also suggest you give the MSX-DOS version 2 - environment reference a thorough read. E.g. in DOS2 you should set up the PARAMETERS and PROGRAM environment variables.

Louthrax has implemented this for SofaRun so he may be able to pitch in.
