People who tried to beat the MSX1 version of action RPG game Tritorn may have run into a major snag. On some MSX- or MSX emulator set-ups, the ROM release of the game will freeze when entering the room of the final boss, due to insufficient RAM initialising within the program. Japanese MSX enthousiast VENOM@VNM created a patch to fix this problem.

The game hangs depending on the RAM chips used on the MSX it is running on, as it depends on the initial values of the RAM (which is chip dependent). If the emulator is good enough, exactly the same thing will happen on an emulator emulating the same MSX...

(Except that it is possible that different types of RAM chips were used in the same MSX types... Then there's no way to tell when the problem will occur without opening up the MSX to check for the RAM chips...)

Time now for the complete map of Tritorn, it even includes two hidden screens that you can't access when playing the game, I had to use some special cheat codes to get them !

@swar9622
Your post was cought in the spam filter because of it being a first post and it had an url in it with textual content that usually goes with questionable posts as well. Therefore there was some delay, as well as some luck that your post was publushed (it remains handwork).
I did edit your url a bit since it had almost the complete scala of code hanging around it. Next time just copy the bare url of the picture you want to post and press this button to embed it. If that doesn't work there can be two reasons for that: 1) it's not the link to the picture, but a link to the page where the picture is posted or 2) the source site doesn't allow embedding.

Have a nice stay here :)
