Hi Bastiaan,

There's no support for Carnivore in SofaROM yet, but you can still modify the SR.INI file to use the official Carnivore command-line loader (the only drawback is that the SofaRun options for Game Master or JoyMega won't be supported). Another option is to use the Memory Mapper as flash device.

The DSK files support and other things should work.

The Carnivore is still on my todo list for SofaROM (along with the new GR8Net mappers and full OCM support), I have everything I need for that thanks to Alexey, I'm just missing time these days!

The schematics for the Carnivore2 cartridge has been updated. A few incorrectly assigned component IDs as well as the RAM chip connections were fixed.

The boards v2.2 are fine, no need to worry. We only updated the schematics to match the board's connections and components' names.

I'm really tempted to order one of these, but I've got one question about compatibility. When you say that this works with any MSX, that includes systems with less than 64K, right?

I don't have any MSX with less than 64kb, so I could not test it with lower memory. However I don't see any reason why it would not work - the cartridge has 1mb of on-board RAM.

Cool, sounds like I'll be replacing my MegaFlashROM pretty soon then. The reason why I ask is that I recently picked up a Casio MX-10 for dirt cheap and I'd like to use a flash cart with it as opposed to spending astronomical amounts on money getting real carts.

I wonder why you want to replace the MegaFlashROM. It offers almost the same features, maybe except FMPAC.
