To state the obvious: I don't think he wants to sell at all...

hbarcellos: how much do you want on that MegaRAM? Do you know if it works without problems on a turbo-R (without having to press anything on boot?)

For (real) MSX Turbo R you will always need to press a button at boot! Otherwise, it would pop a screen menu with some Japanese texts ... Emulated "Turbo R" misses those introductory screens!

The last MegaRAM cartridges works without trouble on MSX Turbo R systems. For MSX-BASIC Disk loaders (I think that someone need to press "1" at boot) it would work like normal MSX computers. ExecROM would need a MSX-DOS 2 boot disk, otherwise it would freeze after load the game.

I have a 4Mb megaRAM, along with a Ademir Carchano slot expander, SCC, Sunrise CF, and of course a TurboR GT.

I can use all the expansion devices in Carchano's slot expander, some of the DIP switches allow me to use the MegaRAM in the same expanded slot as the MegaRAM. A delightful combination.

I might consider selling my megaRAM, expander,SCC, Sunrise CF, and turboR for 2000 euro plus p&p

A small slider switch stops that, not a keypress.

I have no troubles with freezes or any other issues.

Really?

I believe that only real ROM cartridges would run direct from the cartridge port. Some exception would be test cartridges like the Mega FlashROM, EPROM or (for some time) a real Snatcher SCC cartridge ...

There is a selection of key presses that go with EXECROM, it allows you to specify the country code for the MSX.

EXECROM /I selects International, although my MSX is not set up at the moment, I think it will force it to English.

The slider switch on top of the TurboR stops the interenal software, we where on different thought ideas there!

Don't know exactly why are you asking that SlUtman. You saw my post at Brazilian MSXBR-L saying that for this Megaram to work on TR's, you need to disable the R800.
On my Panasonic FSA1-F, it works without any kind of special processes.

Some possible reasons:
You forgot my post?
You forgot how to read in Portuguese and yet you don't speak English?
You really thought that I would not ask the possible buyer on which computer he/she would use the Megaram?
You're just stupid?

Let me know...

And... anyway. Anyone interested in the Megaram?
I might consider some trades.

Yes, there is comments about some MegaRAM cartridges only working on normal Z80 mode. Something to do with the memory and processor used at the time. "Other problems were rumored to be similar to the demos and programs that could need a little extra memory to work property (needing to press something at boot), similar to Memory Mapper versions of some software. The FS-A1GT seems to have enough memory to not need to use short cuts, otherwise some software could hang on standard (non expandable) Panasonic PERSONAL COMPUTER FS-A1ST."

Well. I cannot assure that, that happens on all trs. Mine is an FS-A1ST upgraded to 512k. Bought it from rklok 2 years ago.
