So, interesting enough, removing the file didn't fix it, so I looked into verifying that the MFR was working correctly.

Since MFR (OPFXSD) does not manage zip files, I did unzip one Konami cartridge and tried... then I tried the uncompressed ROM file with SofaRun and it worked!

So, something is amis when I try to flash a zip file Evil Eek!

Ok, good, we managed to narrow the problem ! I'll post here some instructions to check where the problem is coming from (might be SofaUnzip, the tool used to uncompress files).

Hi Shalafi,

Sorry for late answer.

Here's what we could do to check the origin of the problem :
1. Select "Clear temporary files" from the SofaRun main Menu. This will remove all "temporary" unzipped files.
2. Launch the game that you mentionned earlier (the one that is working when you unzip it manually) from a ZIP file. The game should not launch correctly. Just reset your MSX.
3. Go to your SofaRun temporary directory (should be A:\TMP), and try to launch the "xxxxxxxx.ROM" file (there should be only one as you cleaned all other files at step 1.).
4. Check if the game launches normally or not.

If the game is not running OK, it should be interesting to check the difference between the xxxxxxxx.ROM file extracted by SofaRun and the working one you extracted manually. Ideally, if you could send me both files so that I could have a look ?

Cool, thanks for the instructions. I need to make space for all the hardware be and plug it in, so I might take a few days
