The Knight Commander by Knights and released in Spain by Discovery Informatic.

The Knight Commander expands MSX-BASIC by adding to it a set of new 40 commands plus a number of advanced programming functions/options.

Mind how goto turns into IPL.

Do you have any artwork?

Do you have more titles from Knights?

It's about time for the Knights profile page to be updated:

Exploding Atoms & Vicious Viper
Smash Out & Othello
Typing Tutor
Video Library System
Turbo Database 1000
Forecasting Accounts / I think aka Knights Budget Accounts
Stock Control
Knight Commander
Machine Code / aka Expert Machine Code
Knights Easy Assembler/Dissassembler Editor
Knight Artist
Knight T-Graph

By the way, no artwork or pics that I can think of now.

Can you tell me which of those are new entries and which are actually an existing entry? (I already did the ones I could find.)

I think it was Knights who programmed all programs which were included in Toshiba┬┤s Demonstration cassette, which was bundled with new Toshiba HX-10.

@masaxi I wrote an article with many screenshots about the Toshiba HX-10 demo at
[msxcassettes.wordpress.com]
but I don't remember reading anything about Knights in the code. There might a trace of Knights in the cassette inlay, if there was any...

@manuel the Typing Tutor record shows screenshots taken from the Keyboard Trainer program in the Toshiba HX-10 demo tape. This demo is actually comprised of 5 programs: Sample, Demo, MSX graphics, Keyboard Trainer, Junior Maths. Keyboard Trainer is so simple that I doubt Typing Tutor and Keyboard Trainer are the same program. I might be wrong, though. We need data and facts to confirm the hypothesis :)

vg8020, Thank You for going through the effort to put so much screenshots of these programs in Toshiba┬┤s demo cassette!!!! Ohhhh!!!! What exciting memories those screenshots brang to my mind!!!!!!!!! 2:) It was really good demo cassette!!!!! 2:)

Since you have that cassette, load it and break into the BASIC by pressing CTRL+STOP. You can see Knights copyright message somewhere in the listing, since it is 100% BASIC, and I do remember that several programs had that same message (maybe all of them). If it was some other than Knights, please let me/us know. 2:) I remember that that message was easy to find. 2:)
