For everyone trying to get Moonsound audio working on PA3 on OpenMSX and weren't lucky enough to bump on the issue, increase the memory of your emulated MSX...

Hi, I'm resurrecting this thread because I'd like to play this game again too. I found the game disk images at msxgamesworld.com, the game boots but it doesn't recognize the user disk (I'm using blueMSX)... I don't think that disk needed any prior formatting or initialization, right?

@konamiman: nope the user disk is just any plain old formatted disk. So perhaps it is because the version on there is not a fully functional one...

Bummer... ok, thanks for the info. In that case, could some generous soul provide me with a working copy please? I think you will all believe me when I say that I bought the game back when it was released but 25 years is a long time and at some point I lost the original disks. Smile

Sure we all believe you. I also believe that this game, that got released on the MCCM CD set, is available for download at the (in)famous site of the guy who "hunts files" (can't get less cryptic than that Wink )

You mean this weird guy?

I think I'm missing some genuinely interesting story about why that person is so infamous Big smile But anyway, I was able to locate the site, the CD image and the game... only to be stuck with the same problem again.

However, after that I tried a different approach: I did a "hard disk install", copying all the files from all the disks to an emulated HDD, and this time it worked! So it's all good now.

@konamiman: look at the initials of tfh and then at the name on the wiki. Why he is famous is probably of his Fony days and the like... Why infamous? Probably because of his current website, but Meits was mostly joking I guess.

I tried and I have the same problem.

But I found the way.
Strange thing.
when it ask for user disk try to insert the "disk 1 of 5" . i tried and it works.
and the user disk look like it's a disk 5 of 5 because when i tried to load a presaved file it asked me to insert disk 5 and everythig was ok.

tfh is famous, but there's quite a dark grey zone on his website.
On personal account I love that website, but as an mrc admin It's a bit of not done to link directly to it. Therefore I try and do it a bit cryptical and possibly a bit funny...

Just a bit like the "you know where" time when we talked about funet Smile
