Good question. Well, any recent stuff was indeed on the harddisk, and anything else has been in store for quite some years now. I always planned to transfer all the floppies to PC archives at some point, but this never happened. In a few weeks I'll be visiting my parents' place again, and maybe I'll just bring back some archives and see what there is to retrieve. If I find anything of interest, I'll notify you guys here.

Note that many more programs were made of course during development. I recall releasing ox once (the block/map editor).

Just keep asking questions fellas, if parallax remains answering them, he'll be ranked the MSX legend he is in no time ^_^
It's the quality of the posts that really counts... not the quantity Smile

Somehow the quality of your post and the number of posts you did proves that, indeed Smile

Well we actually used ox for all Blade Lords backgrounds. For Akin and Core Dump it was used for more detail work on backgrounds, but mostly for converting DD-graph screens into blocks and corresponding maps.

In coredunp do you use also HW sprites or only VDP copies?

No hardware sprites are used whatsoever. I got rid of them after Vectron and never looked back Wink

Cas, is that malfunctioning Harddisk in your possession since it is never tried to possible recovery.
Romversion of Akin, looks also nice. But to be realistic it will never occur

The harddisk is still around somewhere (again, in my parents' basement), but don't get your hopes up.
Your second statement I did not understand completely?
