The only thing in common the SD cartridge developed in Brazil has with the MFR device series developed by Mr. Pazos is that it has NEXTOR as DOS2 kernel and that it has a internal slot expander so it can have memory mapper or megaram (megarom emulator using RAM, brazilian style) in the same cartridge. It only has these two functionalities. It doesn't have PSG, it doesn't have SCC, it doesn't have flashrom space for loading games, it only have volatile SRAM. The firmware is completely different, as well.

As far as I know, "Memory Mapper", "Mega ROM" and "Slot Expander" designs do not belong to anyone involved on this discussion and are in fact considered part of the MSX standard.

The only valid argument here for nitpicking is about the sticker on the konami4 flashrom cartridge, I suppose. Tongue

I don't see the problem... for me MegaFlashROM has always stood for a Konami MegaROM cartridge with the ROM replaced by a FlashROM...

Both devices are awesome, but trying to copyright the name MegaFlashRom is a total absurd!
And now implicating with the label, and what about using the name SCC in MegaFlashRom SCC+? Konami has endorsed It?

whatever... I know what is quality and what isn't. From what i heard is that the Brazilian hardware is pretty shoddy.

All my support to the MFR. It´s an amazing tool that makes it possible to me to keep on using my MSX.

Lets enjoy it!!!. I can still remember the times when nor the cartridges are existed or MFR and we were all longing for it.

Guillian is always available to help us whenever we have any questions or any problems with MFR.

I don´t care about the name. I don´t see the point in discussing about this topic. Every time I read MFR means Guillian´s Cartridge to me.

Best regards to you all.

Well... I didn’t heard anything either when Metalgear2 took Belavenuto’s SD/Mapper BIOS and *REMOVED BELAVENUTO’s NAME*, which is against the original license.

So, I can’t see how anyone on this forum get to say anything about this matter. And IF Mr. Pazos has any complaints about fzanoto’s product name, he, and he only, should contact fzanoto and solve this issue directly with him!

Guys, just my 3 cents here:
a) For me the MegaFlahROM always belongs to Manuel Pazos' cartridge. FlashROM is not, but when prefixed with Mega - it is. Not just because i bought one a while ago when i get back to MSX-es, but also because if you google for that, you barely find references to other cartridge
b) It looks like Luís Luca (fzanoto) is aware about MegaFlahROM name as described above because he's pretty active forum member
c) Well, no secret that if you make a better product you wouldn't pick the name after a competition, just an opposite - you'll try to get an unique name so everybody recognizes your product after all. I don't say it happens there, but it looks at least weird, right?

So, regarding above statements, the whole thing feels disgusting
