I only got 8, though I'm pretty sure that #14 is 'treasure of usas' (even though the program says the name is wrong?)

Try all possible spellings, such as adding 'the' in front Wink

I'm also an MSX God! Smile 21! 17 by heart, 2 by quickly searching GenMSX, 1 by searching a bit more and one by browsing loads and loads of games. But OK, I can go to sleep now as well Smile

Great quiz!

The original (japanese) name of game #14, is just "UÅžAS", and not "The treasure of UÅžAS". Even on the european box and in it's manual, only "UÅžAS" is mentioned. The only time the game is called "The treasure of UÅžAS", is on the start-up screen, when you play the game on a non-japanese MSX.

By the way, I got 15/21. Hmmm... could be better..

hummm, I did 2 only....

Ricardo on your site ( I read:

/* A no intervalo 0-255 */
return ((input&7)==7)||((input&7)==0);

CP 1

/* A no intervalo 0-7 */
return ((input&7)==7)||((input&7)==0);


Are you sure the C functions represented by the ASM are both correct ?

Please post more results from your Super Otimizador!
They are true gems of ASM.

What about testing it against these functions ?

#define is_range0(x) ((x) < 2)
#define is_range1(x) (((x) & ~1) == 2)
#define is_range2(x) (((x) & ~3) == 4)
#define is_range3(x) (((x) & ~7) == 8)
#define is_range4(x) (((x) & ~15) == 16)
#define is_range5(x) (((x) & ~31) == 32)
#define is_range6(x) (((x) & ~63) == 64)
#define is_range7(x) ((x) > 127)

The C functions should be correct, indeed. The first version is the result of the function when A can take all possible values (0-255), and the second is a bit faster, but require A to be in the interval 0-7 (and will give wrong answers outside this range).

I'll run your suggestions and see what happens Smile
