Hi tooloud,

If I remember well, the Might and Magic games are using some kind of direct access to the disk BIOS. This will never work with the current SofaRun disk emulation (the BIOS is located in a "fake" RAM page that can't be accessed). I had in mind to fix this by flashing the BIOS in a real available ROM slot (SofaRunIt would use SofaROM for that), but this might take a long time...

Anyway there are some patches for disk games using direct BIOS access on my website (look for "Game Patches"). Might and Magic book 1 has not been done yet, but it should be quite similar to Might and Magic 2.

If you plan to use SofaRun, let met know if Might and Magic book 2 works with the patch, I could then provide a patch for Might and Magic 1.

I will check it, but the problem was also with other .dsk files, I need to check on my last stream from MSX where it gave black screen reboot.

Has anyone tried to use the release version of Nextor 2.1.0 with Carnivore2?

I just plugged my Carnivore2 with firmware v2.40 and Boot Menu v2.40 into Yamaha MSX1 YIS-503II KYBT and I realized that the cartridge doesn't work in it. That is quite an unpleasant surprise because it works on this "machine" in the openMSX and it works on other MSX1s that I have.

Does anyone have the same or similar Yamaha MSX1 (not CX5M) to try their Carnivore2 there?

Works well so far, although I did find one issue for which I contacted Nestor.

I have a YIS503-II and a CX-11, I can give them a spin today Wink

Thanks guys. Looks like my YIS-503II MSX1 needs some diagnostics and repair...

Does that one have network module inserted? It may be the cause of incompatibility. Also CP/M rom (or is that only on YIS503-III?
