Hi santiontanon,
I'll shoot a little clip, you & your game really deserve it. I have several MSXes at my disposition for that, what was your childhood MSX machine ?

Here you go: Let's play Transball !

Video quality is not super good, sorry for that (good point is that it does not look like an emulator capture !). You can still distinguish the VG8020 :)

@santiontanon
Why not to add fine scrolling on msx2 using r18 and r23?
The sole tricky part is the line interrupt to split the score bar from the scrolling area.
It could be a nice option if msx2 is detected.

Using an arade stick really helps for Transball. You can click and control the thrust in a very accurate manner, which is not not the case with a joypad (using your thumb and usually softer switches).
