Strangely it seems to contain two files of the same name (different lengths). I haven't worked out why yet as I haven't tried playing the game yet. Attached are the files.

Pretty cool little game for a BASIC game. The 2nd file is a data file. Quite fast scrolling in the game for BASIC (presumably it has a bit of machine code in there somewhere)

And there is no snow on the screen of the MZ-80 K - unless you only tested on an MZ-80 A?

I believe there is MZF-Studio which can convert WAV<--->MZF in both directions. MZ-80B is supported.

I have used MZF Studio for many years. What's the issue?

And I don't know if there is any snow on the MZ-80K screen, sorry! I've not recorded any videos of the game...

Well, here is the converted .mzt file of CRT Chaser Cosmic through MZF-Studio. Thank hlide.
I opened this with Notepad, seemed to be a BASIC game. Unfortunately it doesn't work.
Anyone help?

I guess BTX means "Basic TeXt". Did you try to load from the Basic?

Tried under Toshiya Takeda's emulator with SB-5510, just got some messy codes.
