Hi all,

I've just released the new SofaRun v2.5:

Here's the changelog since v2.4:

  • Support for BASIC ROMs without reset (allowing custom palette and CPU settings)
  • Implemented a workaround for buggy fseek function in IDECDEX.COM (ZIP files can now be browsed on Sunrise IDE CD-ROMs).
  • New "Temporary path" feature for unzipped files (.UNZ) and patches ROMs (.PRM), allowing to launch ROM in ZIP files that are located on a read-only (CD-ROM) drive.
  • Added command to clean temporary files in Quit menu
  • Custom file associations in SR.INI
  • Added "Disable subslot" option for MFRSCC+SD (/U)
  • New "Write to tape" option for CAS files
  • Added "Delete", "Copy", "Paste" command on files and directories in the "Quit" menu
  • Removed "Snapshots" option from the game menu (using .MIG file association instead)
  • More checks on files an directories operations
  • Automated creation of SAVE, TMP, GM1 and GM2 directories if they do not exist
  • Added "Extract all" command for ZIP files
  • Removed internal SG1000 ROMs handling (use custom file associations instead)
  • Added "No Memory mapper support" option for DSK images (makes disk acess faster but does not support games using memory mapper)
  • Added decimals for file size display (e.g. 1.44M instead of 1M)
  • A bit faster opening of ZIP files
  • Files are sorted on filename first (instead of extension before)
  • Better handling of launching external .COM files
  • Set background color to 0 instead of 1 when launching ROM files
  • Auto-detection of available drives instead of having to define them in SR.INI
  • Bundled Grauw's VGMPLAY.COM as the default player for .VGM files
  • New version of bundled SofaUnzip (v1.1):
    • Added decimals for file size display
    • Uses less memory
    • Faster & non recursive wildcard match function
    • Reduced memory usage
    • /B option to set readbuffer size
  • New version of bundled SofaRunIt (v1.3):
    • Support for mixed 360KB & 720KB concatenated disk images
    • No more access to SLTTBL (that area can be modified by the game)

You can download it from my MSX game room.

Please report any bug on the SofaRun bug report thread.

I'll add a news post request later...

Yes, I have not updated the individual SofaRunIt and SofaUnZip packages on my website yet, so the newest versions are in SofaRun for now.

I just fixed a bug in the function that patches the ROMs (for JoyMega, MSX version & language, etc...).

Please re-download for avoid issues with this.

@loutrax, Sorry if I missed this information:

Does SofaRun support OCM/Zemmix MegaROM loading without setting the dipswitches? (Like mglOCM)
