Hello,

I improved FLLOAD.COM that allows to write Rom into a MegaFlashrom (based AMD Flashrom). I need beta testers for these following programs.

Now FLLOAD.COM supports SCC rom mapper!

If you have a MegaFlashrom mapped 8K (ASCII or SCC type), you can test FLLOAD.COM.
Many 8, 16 and 32KB roms work on a SCC mapper.

If you have a MegaFlashrom mapped 16K (ASCII type), you can test FLLOAD16.COM.
Many 8, 16 and 32KB roms (also Q-bert) work on this mapper (with a auto-patch for 32K roms).

AM29F0XX.COM allows to detect the Mega-flash slot. Please try it too on any MegaFlashrom.

Um, what is the advantage compared to OPF?

OPF can write 8 ~ 64KB ROM on my Megaflashrom mapped 16K and freezes my MSX when I forgot to put the Megaflashrom switch to ON. Otherwise, OPF is better for Megaflashrom mapped 8K SCC users.

Switch to ON? I think you're talking about Padial's Flashrom and not about Pazo's MegaflashROM?

This switch:

It prevents the cartridge starts at MSX boot.

I tested with the MAB Megaflashrom mapped 16KB only.

OPF can't write 8 ~ 64KB Roms on my Megaflashrom mapped 16K.

Yes but we must first try if it works correctly. I would like to add automatic detection.
I can provide the beta source code for people who want to help.

@ gdx : I would really like to help. Simply I cannot help for this beta testing because I have no floppy drive. Nonetheless my goal is to have flload working on MSX1 cassette (i.e. running from cassette interface and loading rom images from cassette interface).

Sorry! FLLOAD.COM could not work. I did not put the right file in the zip.

Please re-download it.
