OK, if you want to cheat a bit:

cat softwaredb.xml|perl -e 'use Digest::MD5 qw(md5_hex);while(<>){$_=~/\>(.+)\<\/t/;print$1." ".md5_hex(lc($1))."\n";}'|grep your_sha1sum

(ugly, but it works)

md5sums are in the web page Tongue

You do that, and hope that no one will write a similar script that makes use of it Tongue

Besides: the softwaredb didn't contain all names exactly as you encrypted, so you can find only 13 with this cheat...

That test was tough, scored 5. Were some of these games on cassette cause I couldn't figure any them except the Konami's.

Euh,... around '85/'86 .. MSX 1 Eek!
But hey i've messed around with tapes long enough knowing a lot of stupid games Smile
The problem was back then was that there where almost no MSX users in the region Sad

(ps. having 10 correct by NAME doesn't say i didn't recognise most of them Tongue)
