You'll have to apply the IPS patch to the ROM image and then load the patched ROM into your MegaFlashROM SCC+ SD. Then you can play it on your real Arabic MSX.

Thank you Manuel.
But I don't have such experience.
Can you give me the steps how to patch the IPS file. and which program I have to use?

I've heard people talk about LunarIPS for Windows. I don't have experience with it, though.

I've been using ips.pl, a simple perl script that does the job. But I assume you are using Windows, and while installing perl is possible, I think this is not the easiest solution... so I searched what is available in Arch. There's Floating IPS (or, aptly named flips) that should work in Windows (and OS X or Linux), too - with a simple GUI and a command line mode. This is what you probably want. Also there is uips, another command-line only utility.

I tried all of these three and all give identical results. I did this, because I've run into faulty IPS patchers before; I think it was JIPS, that screwed up files - don't use that. But I've heard Lunar IPS is one of the good ones, and in wide use.

Thank you all.
I tried that with Floating IPS v1.31 . it's succeeded
its work excellent with AlAlamiah AX-170
But it was so bad graphics and bugs with Daewoo DPC-200 (Arabic edition).
Those photos for the appearance of the game with Daewoo DPC-200 (Arabic edition):

Can you dump the ROMs of that Arabic DPC-200 and make some photographs of the mainboard, and run MSXMEM2.BAS?

Also, did you get this problem also without that patch?

Before patching ,The game was not working at all , it always give me a white screen same as I got with AX-170.
if you mean " was there any graphic bug with this Daewoo before ) , the answer is NO .
You can see the details of this machine in this link .
as a user I noticed that this machine didn't has the same quality of the Japanese MSX.
Also I'm sorry I dont know the steps of dumping.

Heh. I remember as a kid with an AX-170, I REALLY wanted to play Nemesis3, and I went to a shop and argued with them for hours that since the box says MSX1, it should be able to run on the AX-170. They got tired of me, took the cartridge out of the box, put it in an actual AX-170 to prove to me it really didn't work. I can't believe the mystery is solved almost 30 years later! Smile

So now(After 30 years) you can enjoy playing it with AX-170.

I can explain the steps of dumping to you. First get this: http://frs.badcoffee.info/files/MSX_machine_reverse_engineer... It contains a README.TXT which explains what to do. It's a matter of running programs from that zip file on the to-be-dumped MSX. Can you do that? See the "How to use" part of the README.TXT

For step a and b, most important are: MSXMEM.BAS, IDENT.BAS, others we can do later.
