We are looking into the problem with FMPAC - some games don't detect and use the cartridge even if run from a different device. I will keep you posted.

There was a question about DSK emulation on one of Spanish forums. The Carnivore2 cartridge already has the latest available Nextor (not Sunrise!) BIOS that makes it possible to emulate DSK images. You can download the additional system files and tools for your Nextor based bootable media here:

http://www.konamiman.com/msx/nextor/2.1-alpha2/Nextor-2.1-al...

Use the "emufile.com" tool to mount a DSK image and then restart your computer. After reboot the DSK image will be emulated as the primary disk drive and your computer will boot from it. To prevent the emulation from starting hold the '0' (zero) key while Nextor's media detection messages are being shown. Then you can delete Nextor's .DAT file in the root folder of your media to disable the emulation of that DSK image. As this is Alpha version of the Nextor BIOS, there may be a few glitches. But so far I have found only a few images that don't work correctly.

One cool feature is switching between the mounted DSK images in real time. You can mount a multi-disk game and switch the disks when a game wants it. For details read the "Nextor-2.1-alpha-2.txt" file from the Nextor's archive.

You can also use the "mapdrv.com" tool to instantly map a DSK image to any unused drive. You can access files on the newly mapped drive immediately.

More info about Nextor can be found here:

On the Yamahas that were made for Russia you need to hold the '9' key to disable the DSK emulation.
