Reading in this thread about games
cracked from cart and onto tape had me thinking..

Crack intros were never used on MSX1? I've seen a few intros on SVI-3X8 that were added to games ported down from MSX.. Like this one..

Here is a old thread about the same..

Id really much like some pointers to MSX games with crack intros.. Also trained games and other historical information regarding this topic very much wanted..

Some cracked disk games had intros, but the only one that comes to mind is the Starcracks intro in SD Snatcher.

I've never seen any crack intro on MSX1 games, only some loading screens with the title and some "cracked by" message.

Metal Gear 2 even has two crack intro's.
There was a 'hidden' one made by Martos and Iceman.

There were lots of MSX1 games that came with white text (the game's title) on a blue border with black background in their loader. That was just a simple basic intro but I've seen it with lots of cracked games. I wonder who made it, it seemed pretty widely used.

We adapted that one when we made dIIsk Smile

We just added a status bar...

The funny thing is that the original loader is in screen 2 and gets built with line and print commands.
The bold font is made by printing is x+1 and y+1 for a second time. This didn't work in screen 5 which we used. Pitty because I would've loved it to do it the same way :)

I think it can work in screen 5, but I forgot how... something with setting the bg color to 0. But that doesn't make sense now... Who remembers?
