Has anyone else been able to play this game on 1chipMSX?

I haven't noticed any issues with any other games that I've tried so far, but this one hangs on the name entry screen. No music plays, and the cursor on the bottom of the screen (where it says Prince and Princess in the English version) moves quickly from right to left. I tested with both the English translated and the Japanese versions of the game and both behaved the same. I tested the ROMs on an emulator and didn't have any trouble. When I reached that screen in openMSX, it was playing music and I don't believe it was actually possible to make the bottom cursor move from right to left.

The title screen appears to work just fine and plays music.

I'm currently using the PLD, MSX-DOS2, and other files that were included with the 1chipMSX CD.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Please contact KdL! I think he’ll be happy to receive another game as test case and look into it.

Can do. I haven't tried it with KdL PLD yet though.

I would have expected this to be one of the more popular titles.

Oh... then try KdL firmware first for sure before reporting.

I just want to report that the game does work with KdL.

Apparently the OCM isn't compatible with this game right out of the box unfortunately.

ps. Same goes for playing the game on the MFR SCC+ SD .. so it might not be a KdL firmware issue.

It is a disk game. Perhaps a problem with the disk emulation?

After flashing with KdL firmware, I used the same disk emulator, EP.com, and got different results.
