Oh what the, I did NOT post this headline Tongue and obviously I did not write the line between "We received" and "member Takamichi." Wink I can guess "by Takamichi" was credited because this headline was nested from my Download post, but the guy who REALLY posted this article, put your hand up LOL!

"MIDI IF3" I mentioned in the quick guide and I had no idea back then is a homebrew Mu-pack clone in here. Look for MIDI3IF.LZH. I better update the quick guide, is there anyway I can update something I already uploaded?

@erpirao: Running the disk images from Sofarun might work, though I never tried.

If you are referring to the Mu-pack clone, MIDI3IF.LZH archive contains the circuit diagrams and actual parts layout in SC5 format but no implementation procedure image. The document, MIDI3IF.DOC is full of line breaks that negate Google Translation so I deleted them and made a Google Translation friendly version Wink Wetransfer link

たまたま見つけましたが、コメントを書きたくてアカウントは取ってみました。
日本語でも大丈夫かな?(英語は少し苦手なので)

私はMoon light SagaのFM音源曲を担当していましたが、未だにMSXって生き残っていることに感動です。
フリーと言うことなのでエミュで起動してみました。 が、初めのボス?でゲームオーバー・・・
でもFM音源曲と言い、グラフィックと言い、学生時代が蘇りました。

一応、Google先生に部分的に手伝ってもらって、英語でも書きますが通じるのかな?
English translation from Google teacher.

I happened to find it, but I took an account to write a comment.
Is it all right in Japanese? (Because I am not good at English)
I was in charge of Moon light Saga's FM soundtrack, but I'm still impressed that MSX still survives.
I started it up with an emulator. Is that the first boss? Game over ...
I feel nostalgic when I was a student, including FM sound source songs and graphics.

This form does not seem to be able to input Japanese.
If you don't understand English because you are not good at English, I'm sorry.

I was in charge of FM sound for Moon Light Saga.
I heard that Mr. Tsuchiya (Ealia) had obtained permission to release Moon Light Saga, so I also played for the first time.
I didn't have MSXtR right now, so I played for the first time, but the first boss? Game over ... It ’s difficult.
The memory of your school days will be revived, such as music and graphics.

First of all thanks to Takamichi for contacting with Tsuchiya Akira, and thanks to Tsuchiya for let to share for free this great masterpiece for MSX turbo R. Hopefully the Takamichi's english translation can be adapted.

Hi Hideaki, MSX never died, maybe commercially speaking, but never for enthusiasts or fans of this machine.
It was a shame to see how japanese homebrew developers in the mid-90s stopped producing software for MSX. Great groups like M-kai (Kyokugen, Pleasure Hearts), Mar'z Project (Be-Bop Bout), Syntax or Maple Yard among many others.

Nowadays it seems that in Japan there is again movement in the development of videogames for MSX.
ghost_jp user it's an active japanese developer, latest games are Shoulder Blade or Inq & Suq vs Nightmare

Actually, the japanese retro games shop called BEEP, has organized this interesting
CONTEST

Have a look at the japanese musicians who participate in the development of this upcoming game for MSX

Or this other interesting development from Japan too Singular Stone

It would be great news if the nostalgia factor caught Maple Yard back on MSX ;)

@HideakiFukui (Japanese from here)福居英晃様初めまして。MSXの音楽集等でお名前は拝見した記憶がございますがムーンライトサーガに関わっておられたことは失念しておりました。すいません。
一介のMSXユーザーのタカミチと申す者です。御協力者の方にお会いできるとは光栄です。Ealiaさん(こうお呼びする方が当方には自然でして…)とは、英語版作成の件で協力したのですが色々困難があり立ち消えしてしまい、結果としてデータをバックアップさせて頂く形となり最終的にこのような結果で公開する許可を頂けて感謝しております。英語版の完成は未だに未知数ですが不可能ではないと信じております。また、洞窟のゴブリンボスには精霊の方を移動して弾を撃つのが効果的だったように思います。以上取り急ぎ失礼致しました。(Japanese to here)

Thanks a lot Ealia and Takamichi for this great gift Smile

Currently playing it on my real turboR, and also with real disks : the game can't be run with SofaRun because the system disk is MSX-DOS 2 based (SofaRunIt can only handle MSX-DOS 1 disks).

But from what I've seen, it should not be to hard to change the direct sector accesses to file accesses on HD. And I'm pretty sure someone known for his other HD-conversions here is already thinking about that Smile

(another way could be to change the MSX-DOS 2 files access functions in system disk to MSX-DOS 1 and boot with SofaRun, but I think I prefer the first option).

おぉTakamichiさん。RuMSXのサポサイトをやっておられた記憶があります(間違ってたらスイマセン)

ボス戦攻略、試してみます。

このサイトってレスポンスが早いですね。Pacoさんって方から参加してほしいとメールを貰ったことはあったんですが
基本的に英語サイトなので読むのに時間がかかるので避けてましたww

私は土屋さんと言った方が馴染みがあるのですが、YouTubeにMLS曲をアップするのに使用曲とかボツ曲とか確認するのに
やり取りをしたことがあって、一曲だけMIDIから編曲したので上げてませんが、一応全曲をアップしてます。
MusicTrystって言う音楽DISKにも参加してますが、そちらの方も2~3曲くらい上げてるかな?

まさかMSXのコメントをする日が再び来るとは・・・。

@HideakiFukui (Japanese from here)RuMSXのサイトは実は今でもやっています。ほぼ放置気味ですが… ;) この掲示板はいつも誰か常駐していてレスポンスがあるので重宝しています。
Youtube の方拝見しました。実機よりかなり音質がいいですね!Music Trystは所持していますがどこに保存したか失念していて…と思ったらつべにアップロードして頂いてるんですね!早速ヘビーローテーションで聴かせて頂きます。(Japanese to here)
Disk2Rom is pretty useless because it works with only one disk image.
In case any of you is interested, MLS was compiled using Z80ASM.COM together with L80.COM, M80.COM that you might be familiar, and TXTDRV.COM which is probably Ealia's original.

I was trying to add it to MSXHub but I faced the same issue... unfortunately my MSX skills are not that great to be able to workaround it myself...

long time no see. Thank you for your email before.
My MSX is broken, so I don't want to make songs with MSX anymore, but since there are songs that haven't been uploaded, I would like to upload them to YouTube.

In many cases, it can be easily repaired by replacing the drive belt...
