Hi,

i would like to run Bomberman Pecail and Penguin Adventure, but it request a specific mapper type. Which is the right mapper type? I selected Panasonic FS-A1FX machine because i'm able to play also .dsk games in this way. Is it correct also for these 2 games?

thank you

I don't know Bomberman Pecail, but Penguin Adventure is Konami4 (Konami without SCC). However, emulators nowadays have a database with most known ROMs so you don't need to select the mapper, which makes me think maybe you have a bad ROM. Also, most non-Konami games are ASCII16, but not always.

A good all-around machine to run MSX stuff is the A1WSX. Compared to the A1FX it has the advantage of having MSX-Music. You may encounter some difficulties running some MSX1 stuff though, particularly European software.

yes thanks! I found different roms and they works now without choose the mapper type!

I still have the same problem with Snatcher: it has 3 disk (3 .zip file of the .dsk file). I patched them with the english patch. But when i try to load Disk 1, the emulator requires the Mapper type... do you think that it is a bad dump? I downloaded it in the same website where I downloaded the correct roms for my previuous games...

I have another question: where is the folder where OpenMSX saves the config.file? Is it possible to choose to save the configuration file in the same emulator folder?

thanks!
