Looking for INITRAM(.COM?)

So I found that if I use the SORT option in MultiMente (through MM.CFG SORT=65) it will sometimes be not able to show a directories contents. Now I saw on the MultiMente WiKi page that calling INITRAM might fix file display issues (not sure if my issue is that or related to it). Problem is there is no reference to INITRAM anywhere else on the forum. I'm guessing it is a DOS2 tool and comes in the form of INITRAM.COM, but I may be wrong. Anyway: does anyone have this tool somewhere in his or her collection? And would you share it with me/us?

I'm now sorting the FAT on my PC before putting it back into the MSX but that is so slow...

This does not help for the sorting issue.

Be careful because there are many modified versions of multimente. They all have different problems. The only one I found that works pretty well but refuses to work on a Nextor FAT16 partition. (a message "Not a DOS disk" is displayed)

Try to put an external font.

https://www.msx.org/downloads/font-pack-for-multimente

To use an external font you have add a line like below in your AUTOEXEC.BAT.

SET FONT0808=A:\FONT\MSX-INT.FNT
