Well, I had problems with a MegaFlashROM and a 512k expansion to begin with, which was enough to put the machine back to the closet for good Smile And of course with that mere 64k of memory there's immediately quite a lot of stuff ruled out – try getting DOS2 to run, for example.

Marq,

I think the 512k of MegaFlashROM SCC (+ SD?) are not a Memory Mapper but a SCC Rom Mapper (like the Mega-Ram). The DOS2 can't work with only it. You must also have a Memory Memory of 128k minimum.

But what about the Real MSX Feeling ... Sorry you can't feel anything while you are playing any MSX game in PC and the game play and sound are all fake and not real.

Because of that ... I purchased MSX turbo R GT and also I am in process to buy another turbo R GT ... All this because of real MSX feeling .... I am almost 40 years old and I ignored and forgot all the games I have played in my life ... Except for MSX ... Because MSX computer is not only a brand or computer ... MSX is my life.

My advice for anyone interested to play MSX games:

MSX ... Feel it ... or ... Leave it Smile

gdx: I've managed to run DOS2 even on an MSX1 machine with MegaFlashROM. But not with that FS-A1.

Indeed, MegaFlashROM SCC+ SD 512K works as a normal RAM expansion. FS-A1 has an internal software menu. You need to hold DEL to skip it and avoid problem booting DOS2 / Nextor.

MSX TR no good on exist ... If you are talking about ST model .. At some point .. I will agree with you because of the design ... But the GT model is unbelievable ... Common .. We are senior gamers here and we have an idea about the history of gaming and computers ... And everybody knows that MSX TR-GT is the best computer if all times.

I have a doubt that you try the TR-GT specially with Rolland and MIDI PAC and if you didn't try yet ... Believe me ... You are missing the real and amazing experince of MSX.

Please ... Think about it ... Carefully ... Please.

Sniper
