Did a quick test and I'm 100% sure it's just plain old basic.

What on earth was I thinking? Smile You are 100% right. Thank you very much!!

The files are stored on the floppy with the .ASM extension. That explains my confusion. But they are basically a collection of REM (apostroph) statements with mnemonics. I probably had something to change that REM statements into binaries because the .BINs are standing next to them and they still work.

Now I have to find out how to do that conversion. I cannot recollect anymore how this. Anyone knows how?

P.S. I'll post soon a video of an old never-finished demo-disk that I was doing at that time. Which I have now rediscovered Cool

The Z80 assembler in MSX Computer Magazine 38 worked like that.

Briqunullus, you are amazing.

By pointing me to this magazine I quickly googled around and yes that was the magazine I was always reading at that time. The assembler is called ZAS-BAS and converts REM statements into assembly. This way you can use line numbering and the built-in editor of the MSX. Actually smart thinking from the guys of MCM.

In the later stages I tended to use WB-ASS2 a lot more but these files are older. I must have used this trick probably.

Thanks everyone for your help! Now I can relive a bit of my old geek past again ;-)
