I've just released a new version of SofaRun, available for download on my website.

Changes from v2.7 are:

  • Added new "SofaSet" tool to control and change your MSX2 ClockChip settings.
  • Added a "Quick Launch" option to launch applications without browsing:

    Applications can be added in SR.INI file:
    ####################################################################
    [QUICKLAUNCH]
    ####################################################################
    
    # %s: SofaRun directory path (e.g. A:\SOFARUN\)
    # %c: COMMAND2.COM path (e.g. A:\COMMAND2.COM) 
    
    SofaSet=%sSS.COM
    JoyTest=%sJOYTEST.COM
    BLOAD"CAS:",r=%c BASIC %sCASBLOAD.LDR
    CLOAD=%c BASIC %sCASCLOAD.LDR
    RUN"CAS:"=%c BASIC %sCASRUN.LDR
    
  • Added FRS's excellent JoyTest tool in the Quick Launchers.
  • Added a new "Erase VRAM" option to erase VRAM to 0 before launching a game (might help for some flawed-games).
  • Finally fixed character-set bug on Arabic MSX machines:
    ->

Please report any bug on the SofaRun bug report thread.

F**********ck oO ! That's 2.7 of course. I was a bit in a rush putting different tools online today. Could an admin change the title of this thread (also the sentence "Changes from v2.7" to "Changes from v2.6") ?

Title fixed. Thank you Louthrax for this fantastic tool. I was too lazy to start using SofaRun for the first time but once I did there is no turning back. Seeing your are integrating more and more features every time, consider making a new SofaMultimente program style Wink .

I'm usually adding things that I need for my gaming purposes. The "Copy/Paste/Delete" menu in SofaRun to hande files&directories is quite minimal but does the job in most cases (maybe lacking multi-selection, which could also be useful to launch multi-files).
The thing I'm missing right now is a "modern", simple and fast text viewer & editing tool (to modify .BAT or .INI files). With Shift+cursor to select text, CTRL+X/C/V for copy paste, CTRL+s to save... I'm currently providing SofaRun with VEDIT, which is great, but the key combinations are a pain to remember (and the display is also quite slow). That might be my next project Smile
