We almost finished the functionality for keeping the selected VDP frequency after reboot. This is done without patching the ROMs. More news next week.

I still would not be able to boot a MSX1 at 60hz?

Not unless your MSX1 has the v9938 VDP, like those Yamahas YIS503II...

We have an interesting commit into our repository from a Russian user Vladimir. The set of files that he provided allows to fully configure the Carnivore2 cartridge on a diskless MSX machine using just the cassette interface and a CF card with raw images of BIOS files written on it. You can check this solution here:

https://github.com/RBSC/Carnivore2/tree/master/Util/diskless

Please make sure to read the readme.txt file and be very careful when creating a CF card with those BIOS files - if you select the wrong device, you may kill the MBR/GRUB and file system areas one of your hard drives instead of your CF card!

Received a version to review from Mark Dowsett, setting it up at the moment. Will be returning it to Mark in due course.

Almost 4 hours later, still copying the software from a MFRSCC+SD. I will of course be comparing the two, and writing a review in due course

I was going to upload the entire collection Konami ROM's to the flash memory. RC701 Athletic adventure works fine on my MFR, works fine using SofaRun, but not when it is flashed using the c2man utility? It gives a file error? Help please? I see no RCP file?

What exactly does C2MAN say? Please provide the file for checking.

Maybe 8bits4ever could comment on availability. Or Carmeloco.

If the BIN files were not up-to-date, please also update the firmware to enable PSG. Otherwise the latest boot block will not be able to enable/disable PSG and clicker.
