Description

Several Compile games and demos include this MSX-BASIC extension, which allows to play background music or sounds while using MSX-MUSIC or PSG. MSX-MUSIC is used when this sound chip is present, otherwise PSG will be used. In most cases, MSX-AUDIO can also be used instead of MSX-MUSIC.

This MSX-BASIC extension was very popular on the MSX scene, so you can find many demos and diskmagazines that use it. It is a binary file, a simple BLOAD"name.ext",R is enough to install it.

Instructions

There are different versions of the CompileBGM extension. All versions add four musical instructions, compatible with all MSX generations.

The grahical instructions are not available on all versions and require a MSX2 or higher machine. Besides, they can vary from one version to another one, what means the presence of some instructions and the absence of the other instructions.

Note: CALL can be replaced by the character underscore (_). A space is not required after this character. See CALL for more info.
