I can’t get this game to boot up. I get a blue screen which I believe is an error message but I can’t read it and google translate can’t make heads or tails of it. I’m using an external floppy drive set to drive A and a memory mapper to boost my ram so the game will have enough ram to boot but it won’t work. It’s a 2+ WSX model. I’d take pictures with my phone but I can’t upload them here apparently. Help.

I think it's not an error message but the explanation to adjust the screen with cursor keys. Press Return to run the game. The screen will be black for a few seconds before the title screen.

not sure about real hardware 2+ WSX settings.

the game loads in BlueMSX with MSX2 Japanese option.
and only uses 1 disk drive.

Boot with only disk 1 in drive 1 and press [ENTER] at the message.
After the title screen picture.
Insert disk 2 in drive 1 and press [ENTER].
