You can turn off the R800 in the sofarun settings. Try that as well!

So I've had a bit of time on my hands today and tried some things to get SDS running.

1. I've tried multiple versions of the DSKs (original, translated, patched, etc)...none of them would run off my MFR.
2. I've made sure to set the TR to Z80 mode but that made no difference.
3. It should perhaps be noted again that the game runs perfectly fine on my A1-WX and F1XDJ machines. Its only on the A1-ST that I can't use the MFR to run this title.
4. I discovered DSKPRO today and made a floppy of the first disk with the Melancholia (sp?) translation and it works BUT only if I remove the MFR. If I leave it in, the system reboots. Remove it, and the game boots off the floppy and the game plays fine.
5. Running the Melancholia disk, I'm presented with multiple sound chips and I've tried them all...same behavior.

Lastly, I had modified a Konami game to act as an SCC cart and with a physical floppy, the game boots and music is great. I would really like to know though why it isn't working on the MFR.

Mystery solved....had to boot holding the (4) key down to use the external memory mapper instead of primary mapper.

So perhaps this request is best posted on another sub forum but since its kinda related to this thread...

As mentioned on the first post, this TR of mine came to me missing a few things...the most important of which was the floppy and its mounting bracket. I found a floppy and got it working so I only need the bracket...any leads? Thanks!

Undeadline is not a game for turbo R.

1. The LED next to the "FDD" access light (I learned) shows the "CPU Mode" but what does the LED indicate? If lit, is it in Z80 mode or Turbo mode?
