Here you can find screenshots from some Zemina games that I don't see listed in Generation MSX: Cyborg Z, Micro Xevious,...

What is the name of the game that appears before Cyborg Z?

babelfish says "Title inspecting, increase it is (for MSX1 /ZEMINA Korea make)
Transplantation "of new generation" of Family Computer. Tiyousiyuu power is not produced, we would like to see."

google translator: "Title inspecting, increase it is (for MSX1 /ZEMINA Korea make)
Transplantation “of new generation” of Family Computer. As for Tiyousiyuu power like it does not come out."

from those hints, I'm guessing it's an adaption of a certain Famicom game. It apparantly misses a feature, "Tiyousiyuu power". That's all I can make of it... =P

It seems that some of those MSX zemina games are also 'converted' to the sega master system.
I know the hardware is very close. But would it be possible to do the same but then SMS -> MSX?

Not really. The SMS has a SG-1000 compatible mode that is very close to the MSX hardware. But SMS native games cannot be directly ported to MSX. Infact, SMS video chip is a kind a paralel evolution of the TMS9918.

TMS9918 --> SMS video processor (SEGA evolution)
TMS9918 --> V9938 video processor (MSX evolution)

They're similar but they use different approaches. Indeed, the SMS video chip is like a boosted TMS9918. All video modes are pattern-based AFAIK, it does not have bitmap modes.

In conclusion, it is possible (and has already been done) the MSX <--> SG1000. But MSX(2) <--> SMS is not that easy!

Is there a complete list with all available data about the Zemina games somewhere? That would make it easier to input them in Generation MSX.

Notice:
- The Bubble Bobble mentioned there is different than the Zemina one in Generation MSX ("Super Bubble Bobble")
- New Tetris: totally unkown to me, and the "old" Zemina Tetris is missing as well.
- The 3 Dragon Story: not in GenMSX... Data?
- Street Master: not in GenMSX... Data?
- Tetris 2... not in GenMSX... Data?

And also the ones you mentioned are missing indeed. If someone has any more info, please post here, to me or in the GenMSX forums.

- The Bubble Bobble mentioned there is different than the Zemina one in Generation MSX ("Super Bubble Bobble")

There are 3 bubble bobble version 'from' Zemina. 1 for MSX2 and 2 for MSX1.

Furthermore I also know there some 'pirated' roms the shamelessly released:
- Knightmare II - Maze of galious with zemina logo
- King King 2 - With Zemina logo AND english translation.
- F1 spirit - With Zemina logo
- Firebird (Honitori) - With Zemina logo
- Hydlide 3 - With Zemina logo
- Pengiun Advendute - With Zemina logo.
- Greenberet - With Zemina logo
- Dragonslayer 2 - With Zemina logo
- Dragonslayer 4 (Drasle family) - with Zemina logo

Is Generation MSX interested in those too?
