Tiny Yarou released an SG-1000 game loader for MSX-DOS in only 220 bytes. The Sega SG-1000 is very similar in configuration to an MSX1, but uses different RAM/ROM addresses and sizes, a different port for VDP access, a different soundchip and different gamepad input. The latest version, released on June 26th, improves conversion accuracy, and adds an option to set the conversion level. You can see the loader in action right here.

No time for that but Tiny Yarou can take my source code to make a mix with hers.

only 220 bytes, and even converting sn76489 to ay-3-8910? it’s really amazing! (specially seeing that i’m still struggling to play ay-3-8910 .vgm files into sn76489 and vice-versa! Big smile )
