All right, Louthrax.
I'll try again and tell you how it went. I attach some photos so that you have more information.
Thank you.

Good morning, Louthrax.

Last night I tried again, but without success.
The problem is that when I save the MSXDOS files that you indicated to the SD card, it does not allow me to navigate through the directories, so I cannot access the folder where the Sofarun is hosted.
I have thought of putting it in the root directory, but then surely it would not work well because it has to access folders to save the states and unzip the zip files. I attached a picture.

Greetings.

I have put the link of the image but it seems that it is not included in the message.

Hi Rodri,

This version of MSXDOS uses less RAM and displays less things compared to the "full" version when you do a DIR command, but it should work.

You can try to type "CD SOFARUN" and then "SR" anyway to launch SofaRun. Let me know what happens when you do that.

If you do not manage to put pictures you can send me an email to lhalter@hotmail.com.

I think I saw your snapshot on msx pics:

Just type "sr" after your "cd sofarun" command and it should work. The only issue with this MSXDOS 2 version is that the current path is not displayed in the command prompt (but SofaRun should work identically to other MSXDOS 2 versions).

Yeah, that's my photo.
I'll try to prove what you say. I'm not very knowledgeable in handling MSXDOS, because when I was little I had a Philps VG8020, so I loaded everything via cassette.

Thank you.

Good afternoon, Louthrax.
I've already gotten it to work. The problem was that, when trying to run sofarun, I got the message "wrong version of msxdos". I consulted it on internet and, apparently, putting the instruction "set expert on" solves the problem. I have put it in an "autoexec.bat" file, along with the instruction for sofarun to run automatically. It works perfectly!!!

Many thanks.
