I've found time ago a great game named ARC.
I'm , however unable to play it. I go stuck at the first screen.
Does this game have multiple screens or does some kind of scroll?
I do not know how to progress, got at the first screen...

Anyone had a kind of suggestion or a youtube video of the gameplay? i'm hust curious of how it does look...

There is a map available on MSX Eggerland: http://eggerland.msxblue.com/arc-map.png

Wasn't there something about a copy protection? Iirc the game needs a cartridge

I just tried. Move to the right and you enter a new screen.
Don't know what is going wrong.

I thought it was a copy protection "joke" so you get stuck at the first screen.
But I'm not sure...

openMSX emulates the cart.

Without the cart I get a message that you need the cart to play the game.
Without the cart I don't even enter in the first screen.

The .rom file can be found online, I have never encountered dumps of the disks. Would be curious as well...
