The screen will be black with just the text "MENU" on screen. Press select again to browse to the other options. Pressing start chooses the current option. MENU goes back to the title screen, SAVE is for saving to tape and LOAD is for loading from tape obviously. This works in the US version as well.The keyboard (or other compatible device) must be connected or the menu won't appear when pressing SELECT.I tried this in an emulator as well but I couldn't get it to work even though the keyboard is selected as connected.According to Japanese Wikipedia, Nuts & Milk can also save with a tape recorder, but I can't figure out how to do it, and I don't have the manual for that game. This is probably a false rumour. When looking into the ROM no such routine could be found.On a side note, you might not need a Family Basic Keyboard to save in all these games (except for the Family Basic series of course). There's the S.D. Station that supposedly can be used to plug in earphones to the Famicom but can also be used instead of the keyboard to save to tapes. The Ascii Stick II Turbo also has the line-in and -out jacks for this purpose http://www.ne.jp/asahi/oroti/famicom/cont15.html. I'm not sure the Hori Game Repeater also can be used for this purpose or if it's just to save the recorded button presses.
