Thanks GDX and Louthrax. Did a fresh install from scratch again and that did the trick.

You have to reserve an entry for SofaROM in the Carnivore 2 flash memory in order to use it (the Carnivore 2 can be flashed in RAM mode without doing that, but the size is limited to 720KB). Here's the procedure for it:

  • Extract one of the file in CARNIROM.ZIP depending on the space you want to reserve for SofaROM in flash memory. Go to the SofaROM directory, and type:
    SUZ E CARNIROM.ZIP SOFAROM1.ROM
    SOFAROM1.ROM will reserve 1MB in flash memory, SOFAROM2.ROM will reserve 2MB, etc...
  • Flash the extracted ROM file in the Carnivore 2 flash memory using C2MAN.COM or C2MAN_40.COM (the same way you flash a normal ROM).
  • Reset you MSX.

    ....

this does not seem to do anything here
i flashed the SOFAROM4.rom and i also have a menu entry but when i try to run it it simply boots up my CF card

i have an older version of the Carnivore so it seems?
maybe that is the problem?

Ah, maybe... Does it work if you force the ""Carnivore 2 - RAM" mode ?

Try to change the "Pref. device" setting in SofaRun's "ROM settings" to "Carnivore 2 - RAM" ?

If it does not appear, it could be because I did not update SofaRun according to SofaROM (I uploaded some beta changes recently...).

Let me know if that's the case. I should upload a fixed version soon.

EDIT: I just uploaded a "maybe-fixed" version for "Carnivore 2 RAM". Warning, it's a bit beta and also contains the "shuffle" play mode plus other extra stuff (OCM support, Cut function, Copy from ZIP files, maybe other stuff I forgot...).

i am doing something totally wrong here......
i (think) i flashed the Sofarom4.rom to the carnivore
i am think that it should "run" sofarun from there?
or should i still run it from the CF?
if so, what does Sofarom4.rom actually do then?

Have you followed the steps described on my website ?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You have to reserve an entry for SofaROM in the Carnivore 2 flash memory in order to use it (the Carnivore 2 can be flashed in RAM mode without doing that, but the size is limited to 720KB). Here's the procedure for it:

Extract one of the file in CARNIROM.ZIP depending on the space you want to reserve for SofaROM in flash memory. Go to the SofaROM directory, and type:

SUZ E CARNIROM.ZIP SOFAROM1.ROM

SOFAROM1.ROM will reserve 1MB in flash memory, SOFAROM2.ROM will reserve 2MB, etc...

Flash the extracted ROM file in the Carnivore 2 flash memory using C2MAN.COM or C2MAN_40.COM (the same way you flash a normal ROM).

Reset you MSX.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You have to use C2MAN.COM or C2MAN_40.COM to flash that SOFAROMx.ROM. These ROMs will just reserve some space on the Carnivore for SofaROM.

After that, you should be able to flash things in Carnivore flash memory. BTW, have you been able to try the "RAM" mode ?

yes
all that
but i was thinking sofarun would start up from the carnivore itself like a regular game rom
because it also in the menu list
ram mode works too

duh

so there actually was not problem at all

sorry for taking up your time
