Installing a battery or a goldcap was never planned. There's no space in the case for a battery holder. So the battery needs to be with wires, like in the old IBM laptops. Finding such battery is a problem, besides, it will raise the price of the cartridge. As most of games don't use SRAM, the battery was never considered the must-have option. The C2SRAM utility can save/load data into Carnivore2, so this is a good workaround.

Please explain what you would like to achieve. What is "skip2rom"?

Hello, "skip2rom" is a program that prevents the execution of a cartridge in slot 2.

; This program prevents execution of cartridge INIT
; between execution slot and slot 3
; Made By: NYYRIKKI

OUTPUT "SKIP2.ROM"
ORG # 8000
DW # 4241, INIT, 0,0,0,0,0,0

INIT:
LD A, # 40
CP H
RET Z
LD IX, (# F674)
LD (IX-6), # C3
LD (IX-8), # EB
RS (IX-12), 2
RET

DS # C000- $

MFR has an option in the menu that allows to prevent the execution of the cartridge in another slot and continues to msx-dos / nestor.

In Carnivore 2, the program prevents the execution of the cartridge in slot 2, but continues to basic.
Is it possible to load the program and have it return to msx-dos / Nestor?
Thanks!!

Okay, so you want to boot Nextor from Carnivore2 in slot 1 whilst having a ROM cartridge in slot 2? I think such a function could be built in to the menu (similar to the function in MFR).

Yes, that would be great. Or also load the rom "skip2rom" and configure carnivore 2 to reach msx-dos / nestor if possible.

I think that will be more difficult for the RBSC team than adding the functionality to the boot menu. I have created an issue on their GitHub.

folks, SR 7.0, I do exit by ESC from Carnivore2 menu, run sr, pick .dsk file (honestly tried on several - but let's keep one example Might and Magic book two, disk1), enter, getting screen to confirm, return/a/space to confirm and black screen, nothing then.

Same steps on other mappers (SD 512k Mapper MegaRAM, MegaFlashROM SCC+ SD) mount and start my MSX2 (8280 or F700P - does not matter).

I made dedicated config to work out this and get access to floppy drive (I have gotek in place of floppy drive) - without IDE, but I'm curious why it cannot just mount and use .dsk files.

Mounting DSK files is done by Nextor, not Carnivore. Carnivore only mounts ROM files. You have 2 options:

- convert DSK to ROM and add it to Carnivore with C2MAN
- use SofaRun that will do all the DSK and ROM mounting work for you

@Alexey, I know and prefer to use emufile from Nextor - but the problem I see is within Sofarun 7.0 and only on Carnivore 2 as two other mappers run SR 7.0 without that problem. Maybe there is something corrupted like SR preferences or something.

Also - I did some tests with audio output - definately putting volume up (for me to maximum = 8) for SCC and MSXMusic in Carnivore 2 volume panel remowe kind of "muddy" sound.
