Dear All,

I have PlaySoniq cartridge and Mega Flash Rom cartridge.

What I did is the following:

1- In my PC, I download PS-Files, PSQTOOLS and tunzip ... all in micro-sd card and I unzipped all in one folder called SEGA.
2- In this folder, 3 folders includes roms for SMS, SG-1000 and SEGA Mark III.
3- Because I will use Mega Flash Rom, I create sub-folders in roms folders (as you know the Mega Flash Rom accept 250 items only in each folder).
4- I insert the micro-sd card in Mega Flash Rom.
5- I insert the PlaySoniq in the back cartridge-slot of my turbo R GT
6- Plug the cables of PlaySoniq correctly.
7- Insert Mega Flash Rom and the 2nd micro-sd card is fully for SEGA games (Drive CSmile.
8- Turn on the MSX and the blue menu of Mega Flash Rom appears.

At this point, I don't know what to do next....... If I follow the MSX Roms and choose the Rom image then boot, also it doesn't work.

Please help......

Regards,

Sniper

You just enter in Multi Mente as usual. You'll have to use the PlaySoniq tools to run the other ROMs. Did you read their manuals?

I am lying in my bed as I type so I may be wrong. Also I dont have megaflashrom but is should work same for disk as anything else I own.

Sega.bas is for under msx basic environment. Dont the megaflashrom have msxdos build in? You need to get the a:> thingy (dos prompt).
For msxdos You need smsload.com from the psqtools

The manual should give you the correct usage. I cant open the manual myself atm because my unzipper on tablet doesnt support lhz and I dont feel like looking for another. you just need to type in dos something like "smsload.com sonic.rom"

*edit: fixed typo

yeah my bad i was half asleep, but i did mention smsload.com so at least I got it right 50% of the times Wink

anyway I checked the manual (smsload.txt)

so after browsing to the correct drive and directory in msxdos (I dont know if your SD card is b, c, d, e or f drive) just type

smsload sonic.rom

and you can add options to it for other stuff (check the manual smsload.txt) like smsload sonic.rom /m

sniper, can you quote the part of the manual where you don't understand it anymore? Then we can read it and explain to you what they mean.

But for loading the SMS games, I think syn already explained it in more detail.

Oh, you first need to go to MSX-DOS, by typing Q in the menu program (which is Multi Mente).

- or alias *.sms to smsload.com in multi mente (let's skip this, it's not easy)
- or press x in multi mente. you can input dos commands that way

not using multi mente at all wouldn't hurt me either Wink

Just be sure you have smsload either in a directory which is in your path or in the same directory as your *.sms files.

Before you're going to ask it, do realize that you need to use playsoniq's own video output to actually see the game Wink

Can you explain what was going wrong when it didn't work? So, what did you change in doing to make things work, what did you learn? It helps us to explain stuff better for a next time.
