Yes, Blue Warrior is a disk game.
With dsk2rom, it can be turned into a rom, with konami mapper.

You can also choose the Auto option but you don't know the mapper type. Then openMSX will guess it. Will not always work, but in many cases it will.

The current development build of openMSX has a much more extensive database, so more ROMs will work out of the box. Try it!

yes it is a .dsk game.
well, I have the latest official version available on the website, the 0.15. I have downloaded the latest developer version. If I want to update it, is it necessary only to overwrite the .exe file? I tried to overwrite only the .exe file, but now OpenMSX doesn't work, I have this error:

In your user folder. See http://openmsx.org/manual/setup.html#romlocation for some examples.
