Oh yeah, sorry, I'll give some more info. Smile
I'm using Windows XP, downloaded the 32-bit version, and installed 0.10.0 into my Program Files folder and Catapult separately (just as I did with 0.8.2).

Did you start it up by clicking on Catapult or by clicking on openMSX? (Their icons in the menu.)

Why not use the installer? It's much easier.

Your savestates will work. Replays may get out of sync.

I did click on Catapult itself.
Is there a separate installer for Catapult? Question

Totally awesome! You have no idea how happy this makes me. Could save a month's worth of work from going down the crapper. Smile

No, there's a single installer which installs both Catapult and openMSX, fully automatically. Download the -msi.zip file and doubleclick the zip and then the msi file.

Are you saying you clicked on Catapult's icon to launch it and got the above window? Or are you saying you clicked the 'start' button of Catapult and got the above window?

(I need to know this to find out what's going on, as I'm utterly confused.)

Found the problem. It was between keyboard and chair. Eek!
I must say, everything was transferred seamlessly! My savestates, and even my machine configurations! Great job!!!

But what I do not get is that I have understood that I should have some option for HDD in Catapult, but I only have Disk A, Disk B, Cart A, Cart B and Cassette. And even 4MB RAM doesn't seem enough for the IDE because it keeps saying "No enough memory" [sic]. oO

The new HDD option has not been released yet. But you can already use it by downloading and installing a daily build of openMSX+Catapult at Fixato's openMSX builder site: http://openmsx.fixato.net/

I don't know about the "No enough memory", but I've heard about it before. Not sure what it is at the moment. It's not emulation related, at least.

Cool, I downloaded that build and it works! Thank you!

EDIT: No, it doesn't (yet) but at least I have the HDD option now

Oh yeah, and the different colours in the commandline are a nice touch

EDIT 2: Works now. Thanks again for the help
