WHAT A FUC******* COOL STUFF !!!
Your code ability is simply FANTASTIC.
Let me say:
PSG Music (and what a music) in the background
An Image over the top
A graphic equalizer
A sort of encription over the basic list
All MSX1 compatible..
IT IS GREAT, It's exactly what I mean...
I HANG UP: I would never and never make something like this.

I would be very pride to understand your code and use this disk remarking your copyright everywhere, but I know I'm asking too much!!!

Many many compliments by me !!

..and my wife has just looked at my menu and yours, saying:
"oh my God, it seems that you 're working on different machines"

That loader was written in a big hurry for the party. I had also lots of other things to take care, but I agree that despite of that it turned out pretty nice.

The BASIC list protection is pretty much all you can do to make your listing not visible for others... How ever "cracking" it requires only execution of RENUM-command. Smile

If there is some part in the menu that you think you can reuse in your project, feel free to do so.

Hmm, when I start a game (I tried UU), I get Disk offline.

Btw - a simple renum doesn't help after the Disk offline error Smile

Also, doing "Files" in basic, also gives Disk offline. So it's really not very easy to crackalac Smile

@Manuel... Magnetic media tends to get bad after some years... It may have something to do with it that I also distributed it on HD-disk that was only "taped" to work as DD. I've just tested the download and it seems to be ok. (Loading & "files" work) Please try to write your disk again.

@Manuel: Ah... I just tested OpenMSX and now I understand you a bit better... To get around this problem, take ie. Disk manager and drag & drop the files to empty MSX-DOS1 formatted floppy... Then take a whip and walk to front of your OpenMSX team.

I only tested on openMSX indeed. Any idea what's going wrong?

I'll have a look at the disk image later. How did you create the disk image?

Very odd. It works fine on my real turboR with Nowind. But in openMSX I get a reset after loading UU. Although on an emulated turboR, I do not get "Disk offline" errors when loading or doing FILES.

Weird! NYYRIKKI, if you have any idea, hints are welcome.

But.. what about the syntax to encode or cracking an hidden code ?????

@NYYRIKKI

Ok, I got these list:

480 DATA "","",0,Universe Unknown,universe,1,The Cure,thecure,1
490 DATA Ollani, Mikie,2, "Griel's Guest",grielex,2
510 DATA Parachuteless Joe,pjoe,2,"Namake's Bridgedrome",namake,3
520 DATA Caverns of Titan,caverns,3,"Crazzy buggy",crazy,3
530 DATA The Mansion,mansion.bas,4,"Lode run",loderun.bas,4
540 DATA Magical stones,ms16k,3,Viking,viking,6,Pair Logic,pairlog.bas,4
550 DATA Blusy Shop,blusy.bas,4,Bomb Man,bombman.bas,4
560 DATA Computer wars,cwars.bas,4,Maze Chaze,mazec.bas,4
570 DATA Snoopy,snoopy.bas,4,Funcle Wave,funcwave.bin,5
580 DATA Colmena,colmena.bas,4,Faeton,faeton.bas,4
590 DATA Mars Lander,mars.bas,4,Drink It,drink.bas,4
600 DATA Eletron,eletron.bas,4,Itoipi,Itoipi.bas,4
610 DATA Ta Yu,tayu.bas,4,Speed black,s-black.bas,4
620 DATA Pointless Drive,pd.bas,4,Memory game,memory.bas,4
630 DATA Police Force,police.bas,4,Fireplay,fireplay.bas,4
640 DATA Solitario,solitair.bas,4,Cheating Wives,cheating.bas,4
650 DATA "","",0,"","",0

Every DATA line there are 2 entrtries
For every entry there is: a) Menù entry, filename.extension, option number
Maybe the extensions for .bas and for .bin need to be indicate, while for .rom it is not necessary.
About the option: 4 is for basic file, 5 is for .bin file.
Many questions:
- 1,2 and 3 are the options for .rom file. What's the difference between 1,2 and 3 ?
- Why many names are between " " and others are not?
- I've tried to change line 490 to show the word OLLANI on the menu which makes possible to load Mikie.rom file. But when I run the disk Zambeza still appears. The disk is not write-protected and the list is correct, but Zambeza still appears: why?

Many Many thanks
