Yeah none of the ones i've tried have identical names.
I labelled the Aleste 2 disks: A1.fd1, A2.fd2, A3.fd3 Does it matter that they are in their own folder or in the root directory?

Filenames must be the same, because when pressing RETURN on a NAME.FDx file, Multimente executes EMUFILE NAME.FD?
DSKs can be in their own folder or in the root. But all DSKs of the same game must be in the same path.

If you are using the latest ROM disk, you can select the DSK pressing SPACE on them and then press RETURN on any of the .FDx or .DSK files. In this way you don't need to rename them to .FDx or have the same name on the files.

SCC+ should be automatically detected in subslot 1.
If you have MFR SCC+ SD inserted in slot 1, SCC+ will be in 1.1
If it is inserted in slot 2, then 2.1

I'm not getting the SCC+ sound. Should I be booting it differently?

Hi Bondy,

At least the translated version of Snatcher I've found, only works with a SCC(+) in a primary slot or a different subslot than the RAM. This is countrary to SD Snatcher, which can use a SCC(+) in any subslot. So that's why you will need another SCC+ cartridge with, for example, MFRSCC+SD or Playsoniq (since the RAM in it will be used), when playing Snatcer. Luckily (for me) I have them BOTH, and the Snatcher sound cartridge, and a MFRSCC+ (the older non-SDcard version) Smile.

Snatcher English translation readme.txt wrote:

(*) The SCC/SCC+ must be in:
a) any non-expanded slot
b) an expanded slot that is not shared with the memory mapper or
the disk interface and BDOS or MainBIOS.

(I believe BDOS means DOS? If you are using MFRSCC+SD even without RAM expansion, the DOS and disk controller still resides in it, hence Snatcher can not use the SCC+)

So, Snatcher is a good opportunity for someone to try to learn some patching! Big smile

Thanks for the explanation Wild Penguin. At least I know what's wrong now. Wish I could patch this but I have zero programming skills and no time unfortunately.

In case you didn't know, you can also use any SCC cart (Snatcher may use the 5th waveform sometime, but don't know how often, I think the effect will be quite minor). I used to use the cello tape trick before I had a dedicated SCC cart, so I did not need to damage any game cart(s). IIRC, for some reason this trick does not work with F1-Spirit, but works with other SCC carts.
