No ROM file available.

Generation MSX info

Cartridge with 8Mbyte onto which you can flash your own collection of Konami games.
Comes with utilities to flash, but without games.
Includes support for SCC and the DAC needed for Konami Synthesizer and Majutsushi

The menu ROM is included with the tools.
But that ROMs uses the cartridge hardware. It will not work with common MegaROM mappers.

Guillian.

I don't have a MSX computer compatible with the cartridge Konami Ultimate Collection, so I decided to make a KUC.ROM to run in the openMSX emulator.
I made a rom file with the tools "Konami Ultimate Collection version 3.0", with all roms requested in "roms.asm" file.
I ran the file "make.bat" and did not give any error (1 Pass and 2 pass OK - 0 errors).
When I run KUC.ROM on openMSX with the "KonamiUltimateCollection" mapper, the music and menu navigation works fine, as do some roms (Athletic Land, Monkey Academy, etc.), but when I try to run the SCC roms (for example: Quarth, Nemesis, Kings Valley MSX2 and GC rom series) freezes the menu, having to restart the emulator.
What could be the problem?

Thank you in advance for your help.

Check the ROMs you used in "roms.asm". Perhaps some of them have the wrong size.

Guillian,

How do I know that my roms have wrong sizes? All the names of the my roms are correct.
It is possible give me the CRC list to see if I have the correct roms?
Thank you very much.

What is the correct ROM depends on what you want to use. There are different versions, you can use patched versions, etc. etc. You could check the size of the files that roms.asm is referring to. Do they look good? Especially for the larger games. At least that's how I interpret Guillian's advice. The size should be documented at Generation MSX, or several other pages that list Konami games.

Comparing the size of your files with the size of the originals.
I.e.: Metal Gear is 128K, King Kong 2 is 128K, etc.

As Manuel suggested, you can check the size at Generation MSX.

Guillian and Manuel,

So I'll investigate the size of my roms to find out the problem.
Thank you very much for your tips.
