Hi there,

i just bought me a MSX2 Computer and also Metal Gear... now i want to know.. how can i save the Game?
Can i save directly to the Cartridge? I think this do not work...

Or can i save on a floppy?

Or is there a seperate Cartridge on where i can save my games? If yes.. how is the name of this cartridge? And where can i buy it?

Regards
Bjoern

f1-f4 = load
f1-f5 = save

or you can record it with your PC (that's as much as I can tell without breaking the rule.. else I would tell you there are hacked versions and or even loaders out there which allow you to load the romfile in a 128Kb RAM MSX and even let you save to disk) Tongue

Played on an MSX emulator (called openMSX)

f1-f4 = load
f1-f5 = save

I suppose there is a typo somewhere in that answer?

Referring to your answer, pressing F1 - F4 makes game loading saved file and also pressing same keys F1 - F4 makes game saving. QuestionBig smile
