Good morning, after several attempts, I was able to load the software needed to run the RAMTEST program in my MSX. After the test the Memory Mapper results 4096kb, therefore working. I can't post the photos in this forum, otherwise I would have shown you the video images! Are there any covers for msx cartridge cards? thank you

Good to hear! If you want to share pictures, you can upload them to https://www.msx.pics/ and post the BBCode on the forum. Registering an account is optional.

Are you sure it's a mapper from 8bits4ever? Because he had assured that the contacts of his cartridges are golden.

I only read 8bit4ever 2016 at the bottom left. Yesterday, I had a problem loading Zanac2 from floppy, with the Mega Mapper Ram 4Mb inserted in the cartridge of my MSX2 NMS8280 it crashes .. ??!

8bits4ever once sold the gerbers for this mapper for 0.50 EUR, so it might be produced by someone else using herbers. The soldering quality on posted photo is questionable btw so i doubt it is built by 8bits4ever, because f.e. soldering in slotexpanders i bought from them looks much nicer ...

Zanac-ex, as well some other disk games need more upper RAM. You need to boot the computer with CTRL key pressed, otherwise such games won't work.

I was recently soodering two internal 4mb RAM expanders for Yamaha YIS-503III. Those RAM chips were quite problematic to solder because their pins were probably coated with something that needs higher temperature to melt. My soldering was a bit better, but also not good-looking. This board has signs of overheating in some places.
