Nothing here yet. Did it come with the regular mail (brievenbuspost) or as a package?

A few default configuration settings could have been altered during testing, so I recommend you to go to configuration screen (C button), press Home and then Esc to save the default settings. Music is on/off with M key, help scroller is on/off with S key. I hope you enjoy your cartridges.

Well, if you have another media or floppy you can start with flashing ROMs and playing games, of course it is not how you wanted it but still Wink And then after getting CF card or SD to CF adapter you can use it in full

Also received it yesterday. Already flashed Salamander. Impressed by the sound quality via the headphone jack. Clear, no noise.

Well, I admit I am a total hardware noob....
Although I read through the Carnivore2 User's Guide I do not understand how to access the Carnivore Flash memory or even the CF-Card. I could not find any option in the menu. The user's guide mentions the C2MAN tool, but it does not explain how to install it.

The chapter "How to enable the cartridge and install BIOS ROMs" says:
The freshly–assembled Carnivore2 cartridge will not boot to MSX-DOS2 without the specific software that needs to be loaded into the FlashROM chip from any disk drive.[...]
1. Make sure that all 3 BIN files (BIDECMFC.BIN, BOOTCMFC.BIN, FMPCCMFC.BIN) are in the same folder with the utilities
2. Run the C2MAN.COM or C2MAN40.COM (for MSX1 only) utility

Questions:
a) Do i have to load the speicific software to the FlashROM chip, if I bought a Carnivore2 from Maxiol? Or is it already installed?
b) to 1. Where do I find these BIN-Files? There is no download link? And where to put them? On a disk or on the CF-Card?
c) to 2. How to run these utilities? Where are they saved? How should I access them?

I am a bit lost... the Carnivore2 User's Guide seems very detailed, but I miss many clarifications for Beginners (like me).
