Can't seem to get Snatcher to run with SCC+ sound. Tried all sorts of different variations (e.g. original japanese version vs. english translation, using slot 1 or 2, running from actual floppy disk after bypassing Nextor boot, holding "S" during boot, using SofaRun instead of Emufile, etc.), but the result is always the same. I start the program, select SCC+, but as the game begins it is playing the PSG soundtrack and not SCC+. The boot program the English translation supplies actually seems to auto-detect the SCC+ and picks the right slot, but still the game runs as PSG sound? Anyone else encountered this? Is there something extra that needs to be done to make it work?

SCC+ works fine with SD Snatcher translation. SCC works fine with Space Manbow and Metal Gear 2. Snatcher just doesn't seem to want to do it. (I have an HB-F1XD machine, if that's relevant.)

It's really hard to search for anything about this related to snatcher, since there are so many other threads about SD Snatcher and also lots of other mentions. I just couldn't find any info about this.

Otherwise, I just got this cart the other day and am really pleased with it so far. The only thing that bugs me about it is sometimes the ROM load just hangs in the middle for no reason. After taking the cartridge out and re-inserting it seems to be fine after a few tries, and then works for a while, but every once in a while it starts hanging again. (Tried a few different micro SD cards, but they all did the same thing.)

I under now why you called yourself sdsnatcher. It is a great game!

I don't know if this behaviour is ok: my MFR SD works good on Philips NMS 8245 but it's doesn't work on my NMS 8280.
Do I have to format and configure 2 different SD cards for these 2 machines?

The cartridge should work fine in both machines. You do not need different cards.
What does it mean "it doesn't work"?
Does your 8280 have any mod?

This machine yes (NMS 8280 MSX2+ with internal MSX-DOS 2.0) but I tested on at least 2 8280s without modifications and the problem was the same: it doesn't see SD card, it goes in Basic or switches to MSX1 mode.
I'll do some other tests and take photos.

Hey!

I *just* noticed that the MFR description says "Supports hot card swap"... So, am I to understand that it's actually possible to just pop the SD card in and out while the MSX and MFR are running, and I've been powering off for no reason all this time?

BTW, I finally understand something about how the MFR works, so I made my own ROM disk with updated system files etc. However, it only dawned on me later that the Nextor ROM needs to be upgraded too, so now my NEXTOR.SYS is the latest release and the ROM is the one on the MFR page... I don't even know what NEXTOR.SYS does, but at least so far everything has worked fine :-)

I'll upgrade the Nextor ROM once I get my Emu-FDC to boot from, should be coming soon. (At least I hope that'll do it.)

You can definitely update the Nextor kernel when booting from a DOS disk (image). You can use the latest kernel from Konamiman’s github, in my experience it may be needed to repartition the SD card afterwards (somehow the partitions created under Nextor 2.04 kernel are not recognized by later versions).

Ahh, that's good to know, cheers!

After many years of glorious service, my MFR SCC SD needs an update, mainly for the Nextor part to speed up the read/write operations with the SD card.
But... where to start to entirely update my cart?

Did you read the manual?
