That is a nice FAQ! It has already helped me a lot, but I'm still reading it.
Thanks for the advices. I hope my doubts will soon be gone... oO oO

While we´re still at it. How can I use .dsk files on a real msx. I want to make .dsk files on my flash card and then run them. Is this possible? And if possible is there a program that makes .dsk files. AND, is there a program to run them on my msx. ANDDDDDDDD is there some way then to play multiple disk games such as Illusion city in .dsk format on my Turbo R?

Thanxxx in advance

These 2 programs run DSK-images...And of course! With PUTDISK.COM you can write a diskimage to a diskette and with GETDISK.COM you can create a diskimage from a diskette.

Where to find all these files? Well, at least HDDEMU is in our Downloads section.

Give a good Google search and I think you'll find the other programs as well. What about funet?

Any tips regarding running MicroCabin games(Xak series, Fray, Illusion City etc) from HD? I'd like to start playing some of them again, but disk access is soooo sloow... Wink

And all FD-emulators I've tried sofar, failed...

I was thinking of the possibility, using the turboR's DRAM mode, to actually "patch" the DiskROM to use disk-images instead of the real floppy-drive. This would imho be an almost inbreakable way of emulating floppy-access on a hard-drive, unless the game itself switches the DRAM-mode off... Which, then again, the MicroCabin games may very well do... Sad

IIRC there are only two programs being able to run Micro Cabin disk images from HD: FDE and HDDEMU.

hddemu does the trick, as long as you use the original game disks to create the images from. With quite some efforts I managed to run the English patched versions as well.
