Never saw this "sword of mikie" anywhere. Would love to play it, looks like a lot of fun! :)

The text above the video says it's from the January 1986 issue of MicomBASIC. You're in luck!

https://archive.org/details/micomBASIC_1986-01/page/n111

Normally you can search the text of a magazine but for this one it's broken. So I found it in the raw text file which seemed to indicate is was on page 112, and then used web viewer to quickly locate the page.

You will need to type in the code yourself. But it's "only" one page split into four columns.

There are lots of "forgotten" games out there (dozens of type-in games in this one issue alone! though not all are for MSX). Some Japanese fans that I follow on Twitter have special software that will take a scan an recognise the code listing directly — removing the need for typing!

Thank you so much for that! Big smile

My pleasure. Please share when you have finished!

Also, I think it would be a worthwhile endeavour to list all the MSX programs in those issues of MicomBASIC and other magazines like MSX-FAN etc. I'd be happy to help.

This Japanese site can be helpful to find all the MSX listings: http://s-sasaji.ddo.jp/bm/ in the マイコン BASIC Magazine.

You can try with an OCR like me:
https://www.msx.org/forum/msx-talk/software/color-puzzle

It works well when the document is of good quality.

I placed some random text where there was japanese, but other than that I believe this should be right Wink
Now it will wait for a while, I have a whole (non msx) project to finish this month :/

I used an OCR and the result is better than I thinked for this listing. I also fixed some characters and the lines that exceeded.

Sword of Mikie.zip

You can work on it. I think you will need at least one hour to get the right program. There are probably still some corrections to make for the interpreter can load it correctly. Special characters must be edited with a Japanese MSX.

I will try to find the details of the software that does OCR with dictionary of BASIC keywords to get better results.

Here it is!

Program List OCR by eighttails
https://github.com/eighttails/ProgramListOCR
more info: http://eighttails.seesaa.net/article/305067428.html

View the ReadMe in Chrome and use Translation option to get it into your language from Japanese.

Here are output files for doing OCR on Sword of Mikie page, 1.BAS and 2-3.BAS:
https://www.mediafire.com/file/7x3di09qugbqkls/ProgramListOC...

And use MSX VIEWer to easily check the output for errors.
https://www.minagi.jp/2004/05/20/msxviewer/

And you can validate checksums if they are used in your listing (not for Swords of Mikie)
