And another mystery with this Yahoo auction: https://aucview.aucfan.com/yahoo/n192762846/ that shows only the picture of a rare Yamaha module, that was part of the YIS-805 package, but the title refers to the CX7/128.... ??? Maybe it was also sold separately for the owners of a CX7/128 ???

It is a YAMAHA music computer CX 7/128 cartridge "YAMAHABEGINNER 'SLESSON". Says Google translate.

Fortuin BASIC?? Really?? Isn't that going a bit too far?

It's used in a MSX-Engine game.

It's just a few machine language routines they created for the game... just for that single game, probably. Why would you give it a name "Fortuin BASIC" and even mention it? It's not meant to be a public available BASIC extension... OK it's nice that you make a list of all BASIC extensions, but I suggest to put these 'internal' extensions just on a separate article, without making the impression that it was released as an product by itself (by giving it a name). Why not make a list of the products/programs in which these were used and list the commands that were implemented? This is purely for documentation purposes anyway, but at least that doesn't give the wrong impression.

I don't see the difference with CompileBGM Basic that was used in several Compile games and so many scene demos! Also this extension was not released by Compile as separate production.

Isn't that quite an exception? People ripping out the BGM driver and using it in their demos?
And yes, Compile would be a fool not to reuse their own BGM driver.

Calling something "Fortuin BASIC" is just... quite extreme to me.

Do you have another name for this extension? Fortuin simply refers to the name of the binary, so I don't have given myself a name! 5 of the 6 instructions could have been reused by MSX fans, but I guess this small MSX-Engine game was not very known, contrary to the great Compile games!

Concerning your suggestion of 'internal' BASIC extensions, I think it can be applied only for BASIC extensions whose all or most instructions can't be reused in another game or application.

Two examples of real internal BASIC extensions:
- the Fony BASIC on Fony Demodisk 1
- the Super Billiards BASIC with the following instructions:

_SYSI
_FIELDI
_SHOT
_TARGET
_PLACEQ
_SCRTCH
_POCKET
_CLRBL
_SCRI
_STRSET
_JOY
_TRIG
_SOFF
_RES
