On this website, you can see the ending of Laydock :
http://www.vgmuseum.com/end/msx2/a/layd.htm

But it's not the real ending, there are 2 other bonus weapons and you must be promoted colonel ! By using cheats in blueMSX, I've found different things :

- on level 5, you get BULLDOG weapon
- on level 15, you get ADEN weapon
- on level 25, you get CONDOR weapon
- on level 45, you get KILLER weapon
- on level 65, you get SPECIAL weapon
- maximum level seems to be 70, but the words major, lieutenant and colonel have not been yet displayed on the screen
- by resetting the shields to 0 on level 70, I can see 2 passwords :

BENOIT Major PASSWORD = SRRSISGN

DJANGO Major PASSWORD = ESJPKKQJ

BENOIT and DJANGO are the names I've used for player 1 and player 2.

So, I'm now only Major and the game can continue .......

But what's the utility of these passwords ? When I load the data for both players, the passwords are not asked. Were these passwords for a contest organized in 1986 by T&E Soft ??? oO

I've found the answer on Wikipedia ! Smile

http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E3%83%AC%E3%82%A4%E3%83%89%E3%...

3作品とも全ステージクリア後にパスワードが表示される。当時これをマニュアル付属の用紙に書き写してT&E SOFTに送付すると、シリアルナンバー入りの階級証(プラスティックカード)がプレゼントされた。クリア時の自機レベルに応じて、宙軍大佐・中佐・少佐といった専用の階級証があった。

Excite translation :

A password is displayed also after three times clearance of all stages.
When this was copied into the paper attached those daysto the manual and having been sent to T&E SOFT, the class certificate containing a serial number (plastic card) was given.
According to the self-opportunity level at the time of a clearance, there were class certificates for exclusive use, such as Colonel 宙軍, lieutenant colonel, and major.
