Currently the are 4 save games in the game:

SNAKE 1
SNAKE 2
SNAKE 3
SNAKE 4

When i want to save the game after a time, i cannot save the game with my own name, only overwrite the SNAKE 1-4 files.
When i do that , i got a message "saving ok" press ESC, that works.
But...when i want to load my saved-files, the game gets a lot of blocks in the screen, not playable and not my save game

I use MegaFlashROM SCC+SD in combination with Sofarun

Maybe a wrong setting ?? I'm a newbe

Hi Hypersoft,

Which version of the game are you using ? (ROM image, disk image, translated ?).
Better, could you provide the CRC32 of your ROM or disk image ?

Hi.

I'm using a dsk image.
What do you mean by providing the CRC32 ?
I'm a newbie. But with the right instructions or manuals
I can do a lot.

Getting a CRC32 file can be done on a windows computer by opening this (portable) tool and drag your romfile into it.

Every little difference in the rom file will generate a completely different checksum number in this program. And that way it can be determined if you use a bad rom dump or perhaps even the rom Louthrax has on his own sd card so he can check what happens if he uses the exact same rom as you.

Thank you already for the answers.
I'm gonna check the CRC32 file this weekend, and give the results in this topic if that is allowed.
I cannot use my MSX this weekend, till monday.

Hi Hypersoft,

I recommend to use the original ROM image, that will be more reliable.

Follow these steps:

  • Be sure that the ROM image you are using is the European one (Japane Metal Gear works only on Japanese MSX models).
  • Set the "'Game Master" setting to "Game Master 2" in the ROM settings.
  • Start the ROM.
  • Select "Game" on the Game Master 2 welcome screen. Metal Gear should start.
  • During the game, press [STOP] followed by [CTRL] to access the Game Master 2 menu.
  • Select "Disk Save" then "Game Data" to save your game at any point in the game (you can put any filename you want Smile).
  • Press [STOP] again to return to the game.
  • Just use "Disk Load" to restore your game.

Let me know if that works ! Lots of other Konami games can be saved / loaded with the same procedure.

In general, when you have the choice, prefer the ROM version for a game if it's available.

Thanks already.
First i have to find the original rom image, does IT have to be
a dsk image, or rom file ?

I have a NMS 8345 with the Flashmegarom SCC+SD.
