The game boots with mglocm, but I cannot get the save function to work. The readme for the patched versions say to use F2 to save and F4 to load. However, F2 gives me a game over and F4 brings up the old built-in tape saving menu the game has by default.

Am I doing something wrong?

I have an Expert 1.1 and an SD MAPPER.
With version 8.0 when I try to load any Mania file, the msg:"Computer reset and hold down the [CTRL] key until a beep is heard" appears, but even when I press the key I get the same msg.
It only works if I change the configuration to simulate the CTRL key.
weird....

I am enjoying using Sofarun.
I have one question.
The game I'm trying to play is ROM data.
It saves to a floppy disk.
It would be no problem if I had a real machine, but my desk space is getting smaller.
I use the SX-1mini+ as my main MSX.
I play most of my games on Sofarun, but for this game
I need to start rom with the disk mounted for saving.
Is this possible?
The image files exist for both ROM and disk.

I’m setting up a SM-X and I am having a bizarre problem with Sofarun.

Video HERE

In the same boot, same machine, same specs:

- Sofarun 3.2 works perfect, loads a ROM and all.

- Sofarun 8.0 won’t work. It keeps switching screens like if the ESC key was kept pressing - but it’s not, you can see that on the video.

Any ideas? Tips? Suggestions?

EDIT: found Sofarun 7 on-line. Same error.

I think this is a bug from the SM-X. It is presented in the video below with Sofarun in 40 columns mode probably because it doesn't work in 80 columns mode.

It seems to be a problem with joystick port 2. It is not detected as a joystick on HIDTEST and button B is stuck as pressed.

Now I must figure out if that’s a firmware bug or a problem in my board’s assembly. oO

Not really a bug, but I can't seem to run any rom using a MegaFlashRom SCC+ with SofaRun. They either launch a blank screen if they are in a zip, or the system reboots into SofaRun if they are something else (i.e. the ROM files from my own games). DSK files work perfectly.

In particular I was looking into playing some of the MSXDev games in real hardware, not just emulated.

This problem is happening both on an SX-1 and on my own MSX-1 (Dynadata DPC-200)

It feels like I am missing something extremely obvious in here.

Hi Shalafi,

Could you post here the message displayed just before launching the ROM (the one with "Mapper type:"...) ? If the MSX resets before that screen, let me know what is the last message displayed before the reset. The crash could be during the unzip operation (if you have the file in a ZIP file), in that case it could be caused by a corrupted file system, or the version of Nextor used (some old versions of Nextor were causing random problems on file creations).

Ah yes, the problem was probably introduced when SofaRun added joystick 2 as a control device (that's handy if you have a mouse plugged in port 1 for same games or applications). I'm curious to know if that's a board or firmware problem....
