Hello to all,
Sorry for this stupid question, but I've looked everywhere: is there a way to exit a game launched by Sofarun without rebooting your MSX? I'm looking for a key combination on the keyboard to return to the Sofarun menu. But I don't know if it exists.
Thank you for your help.

Hello,

I think the best answer is no.
And SofaRUN can't do anything about it, I think.
MSX programs are not designed to return to OS like MS-DOS ones.

Many games were sold on cartridge support and the best (and only way) to remove a cartridge is to power-off the computer.
MSX computers weren't designed to work with HDD so, like Atari ST or Amiga 500, you have to reboot to change game.

You can do it with MSX1 Roms up to 32kB (or maybe 48kB) by defining Game Runner as second Rom loader.
