I just got this game from japan .

Wanders from YS, it comes with 5 floppys.

When i use them on my msx 2+, the game wont autostart.

The floppys have the PSG logo on it. Do i need any extra hardware?

Thanks Smile

No, PSG is the sound chip built in to any MSX. The game requires just 64K RAM too, should work just fine in any MSX2 / 2+.

There can be several causes. Do other floppy disks work on your MSX? If not it may be your disk drive. Another possibility is that compared to cartridges, floppies are a vulnerable storage medium. Depending on the storage conditions, the age and the quality of the disks read errors can start to occur. Though none of my floppy games (Ys I, II & III, Xak I & II, Fray, Dragon Slayer 6, etc.) had read errors last I checked, so I think it’s not as common as one might think. Finally, there is a possibility that someone formatted the disks…

Yes, that's exactly what I was wondering, because there doesn't even exist a PSG logo...
