... This particular rom hangs the MSX. I have tried al versions and only the binary type runs. Or can I load binary files with execrom?

Execrom just load roms.
Is this a protected game? Like knightmare, for exemple.

Not sure if the game is protected, Its about beamrider. Could be. Riverraid does the same hanging thing but fits in one page and thus the basic script solves the problem. Beamrider is just a little bit too big.

You need StopDrive, a program also on Adriano's page, that does exactly what you need.

Sounds like we hit the spot! Smile I will test soon. Need to transfer it to disk. This looks like the solution I was looking for.

You can run binary files with BINLDR from the DOS. Drives can be stopped by pressing the SHIFT key during loading.
