@hbarcelos
on 22.04 I wrote
Hallo, now it works fine using EXECROM either on OpenMSX and BLueMSX.
I used also a Loader by Nyyrikki and it's ok.
Only Pepper2 hangs up after your logo and after the menu.
It seems to start, but when the main screen finish to scroll down to the center of the screen, it hangs up.

Now I've tried both floppy version (the one with my personal loader and the one with Nyyrikki one) on my real VG-8235 with 720k Drive.
Every rom that works with OpenMSX and with BlueMSX hang up.
Tutankham, for example, show the Konami Logo correctly and after the video broke out with the same effect I obtain if I use the command
VDP(10)=0
on my MSX

I send you the two disk version. (they're both on beta version !!!)

Giuseve, just got them, thank you, I'll take a look.

@Nyyrikki, I'm seeing your .DSK loader code. That's really some wild coding, including ASCII ART of a TurboR! Cool
To remove the line #'s you saved a couple of backspaces after a REM??

Many REM where added by me to help myself to understand a little bit more the fantastic code of Nyyrikki.
Specially after many days it would be hard to remember all the sections of the list.

@giuseve
I'll work on Pepper II to make sure it's able to run through ExecROM, but, after seeing all the magic made by you and NYYRIKKI Smile in order to put games in memory and execute them, I cannot promise you I'll debug extensively the other roms. Specially on real HW, since my TR+1084 setup is not assembled at this moment.

If you can, please just create a plain simple MSXDOS disk with latest EXECROM on it and try to run the games without any other type of loader. With the exception of Pepper II (that I found an issue on the version you're testing), I'm almost sure all the others will run fine just the way they do inside openMSX...

@hbarcelos
the version of execrom in the disk is the latest I found on the web.
It is the 1.2f version
Please give me a link if you know there is a new version somewhere.
And what about the latest MSX-DOS for a MSX2 standard?
My latest one is the 1.8. Do you know something about a 1.9 or newer version?
I think that version 2 and above require a cart with the rom inside (except TurboR) !!!
So I would try to make a CLEAN DISK as you suggested me.

@hbarcelos
SOLVED
the output problem is about video.
I use MSX on my PC trough a video capture board: i've tried on a real flat TV.
I think that your game are 60hz, while PAL is 50hz. But the flat panel is multifrequence and shows the game in a dancing mode.
I solved with this command before load the game
SCREEN,,,,,1

The better output is obtained with a more comlete command as
VDP(10)=0:SCREEN,,,,,1

It sounds strange, but it works !!!

Well, glad to hear that, but, Pepper II still has some problems when running after DOS. 99% of chance of reading dirty from RAM. I'm working on it for the cartridge and I'll send you as soon as it's ready.
The other changes will be:
Tutankham :
* Swapping joystick buttons (apparently, today, to fire right, you press the left button on most joysticks.) Keyboard will continue the same: space = left; M = right.
* When game is over, on the coleco, you can press * or # on the joystick keypad to continue and/or get back to menu. I'll change those to space and M.

Pepper II:
* Able to run perfectly through ExecRom.

Rgds,
HB.

@hb
Tahnks a lot, all done and works.
I've just finished the 1.3 version of my Muffie's Floppy
What's new:
- Load screen in SCREEN2 or SCREEN8 due to autodetect of the MSX Machine
- Upgraded version of .ROM thanks to Hbarcellos. Now all roms works
- Added the Something Else you were talking about
- Added the VDP(10)=vdp(10)OR2 and SCREEN,,,,,1 to correct the right visualization on real PAL MSX

To do:
add a simple .PSG music if I found a way to play a .PSG file with few basic lines

If you want i can send you the new version.
