Although porting Coleco and SG-1000 games are possible for MSX, I was just wondering if anyone knows if it was possible for a loader or emulator for Casio PV-2000 or Sord M5. They are both Z80 computers just like the MSX, but they also use the Texas Instruments SN76489, while MSX uses the Yamaha AY-3-8910. The SN chip is usable for Franky, MMM, or the PlaySoniq.
Thanks if responded. Smile
Edit: The computers also use the TMS9918 video chip.

I'm also wondering if it is possible to put Memotech MTX on the MSX, it also uses the Z80 or Z80A, the TMS9918 video chip, and the SN76489 chip.

I was not aware these systems even existed. Having done some googling; it might be too much effort for a very limited set of software. I'd like to see somebody try, would be nice for the MSX to be able to to this.

Concerning the Sord M5, only the programs that do not use the Z80-CTC should be easily convertible.

So it might be possible to make a loader or emulator for Sord M5? I'm also still wondering about the Casio PV-2000 or Memotech MTX, maybe I'm thinking about Casio PV-1000.

I am trying to convert Power Pac and Mr. Packn' to MSX manually.

I tried, but maybe I need Rom1 or Rom2 or merge them together for a loader.
