The Coleco version of Spectron has been converted for MSX + SN76489 but not Armoured Assault.
Armoured Assault is a .CAS file that contents a little BASIC program and binary. The svi BIOS may need to be adapted to make this game work. I don't know enough about svi-3x8 to convert it to MSX.

Where can I find the MSX converted version of Spectron?

Is the MSX -> Memotech MTX conversion tool still available somewhere?

I'm not quite sure anymore, so I uploaded last test version that I did here: https://msx.fi/temp/MTX_EXEROM06b.zip
... it requires MEMU to run... Unfortunately I don't know / remember how to try it on real MTX, but it sure was not quite as straight forward, I hoped for... (Sorry, my knowledge here is very limited as I don't own MTX) In this version there might be some timing problems on real hardware as I don't think I ever got to fixing all of them... and actually I can't tell if it works on real hardware at all... I got pretty mixed input on that and it is hard to say was it the loading procedure people tried or the program that caused some weird crashes & issues that I could not repeat on emulator. I did a quick test and it seems to work at least on 2017 version of MEMU that I have... Should work also on later versions unless command line parameters have changed since.

Ah, I noticed MEMU is not online anymore, so I added it to the package... Makes it more easy to try (on Windows)... just extract and execute MSXGAME MSXGAME.ROM

Hey, I realized that I DID a loader for SDX, so here is a version that has a loader... In emulation environment this is harder to use as MSX games need to be compressed and header added to them (= Convert.bat) before loading. https://msx.fi/temp/MTX_EXEROM06b_SDX.zip
