Hi everyone, I have been told a few times that my latest game does not work with SofaRun. I just tried it and indeed it does not work. The rom is a 48KB ROM (but the game uses BIOS routines, so, page 0 keeps being swapped between BIOS and the actual game ROM page). Is this the problem? or might there be some other thing I'm doing in a non-standard way that I could maybe fix?

It doesn’t sound particularly non-standard to me.

Does SofaRun load the game in the correct RAM pages? Or when it sees a 48K ROM it considers it a MegaROM (which wouldn’t work)? I’m not a frequent SofaRun user myself, but are there settings to specify the ROM type and how to load it?

This is my first time using it, so, I'm not very familiar. But I've seen there are two options for ROM types that it lets me choose from "Konami" and "auto" (in which case, it detects as "linear", which I think is the right type). With "konami" it just hangs, and with "auto/linear" it reboots...

I tried setting a breakpoint in openmsx debugger on the very first line of code (address #4010), but it never even gets there! haha
