Hi everybody,

I translated this old little game made by an unknown developer. It's a rare game. Let's enjoy it.

Let me know if something needs to be changed.

I agree. It's a game to classify in curiosities.

Interesting curiosity ^^

btw, took me a bit of keyboard mashing to figure out that "underline" is this key:

I have no idea if that's what it's actually called but I'd have thought it'd be "_" or something. It might just be my keyboard mapping (I'm using an AZERTY keyboard with QWERTY mapping in ROM)

I translated the text as it is. The key may be different depending on the matrix. On a Japanese keyboard it's "_" (on the left of the right shift key). I have to check on English and international keyboards.

PS: I should have said that Japanese version of MSX Swimming Game is available on MSX Games World but some texts are broken. The version I give is correct.

If not mistaken: According to the keyboard/MSX is French, Germanic, international, Russian or Spanish, the key is the accents key, the "Dead" key, "CAP lock" Key on the right or "H" (Russian).
Some MSXs seem do not have this key! (Does anyone can confirm?)

Wouldn't it be better to just change the key to something more logical (like CTRL or GRAPH) in the translated version?
