Here is the first entry for the MSX Freestyle category, and it is a puzzle game for V9990. Dreams Puzzle follows the classic mechanics of sliding puzzles but in this case the pictures look awesome thanks to the artwork made by Josephine Wall who granted her kind permission to use it in this game.
Dreams Puzzle uses the screen mode B3/512 x 424/16bpp and 32768 colors, and features music by MSX chiptuning veteran Meits.

In the mfr ssc + sd + V9990
Update ROM Disk 1.19 software, from https://www.msxcartridgeshop.com/
If you have a recent version of the cartridge, it will work correctly.
If the version is before the summer of 2017, the hardware must be updated. Contact Guillian.

When i run it on my Turbo R using MFR + sd + V9990 (the loader uses ASCII 16K), i get the bottom half of the title screen messed up and also all texts are just white bars. First puzzle screen looks okay again, however still white bars in stead of text.

Insert the rom in a cartridge slot and activate the video9000 extension. That works.

You can also use one of these Boosted MSX machines, they have a built-in Video9000.
