Yes, there is. I had a disk precisely with Treasure of Usas and Vampire Killer, single density, single sided, that I used to play in my 8235. Last time I tried to use the disk the data could not be read.

So a way sure it exists.

If you want to run a 128kbyte rom you need 256 kbytes ram with loadrom. Send me a mail at msx8235-spam@yahoo.gr to help you

Sorry to bump this old thread, but it describes my problem exactly!

To quote Yakumo:

"Yes, there is. I had a disk precisely with Treasure of Usas and Vampire Killer, single density, singlesided, that I used to play in my 8235. Last time I tried to use the disk the data could not be read.

I got my VG8235/00 from my attic and a lot of discs don't load anymore. I had Usas and Vampire Killer on disc and was able to play them years ago, but now they don't load anymore. The past 3 hours I've tried downloading .DSK images and writing them to a floppy, but the MSX hangs or resets. Also tried holding down CTRL while booting, but that also doesn't work Crying
Also tried loadrom but it hangs also.

Please, if someone can tell me how to get usas and vampire killer working again from disc, that would be awesome LOL!

I don't know why, but the self extracting megaroms of usas and vampire killer I downloaded do exactly the same. They either hang or reset the system. Vampire killer shows a white screen for a couple of seconds, which is promising, but the konami logo doesn't appear and then the system resets itself. The MSX is fine, I can play Contra from disk with SCC from my kings valley 2 cartridge with switch. I was also able to restore Ikari warriors from a .dsk file.
I remember I always had to "bload" 8 .BIN file's for vampire killer by hand. I checked the old disk in my PC and it contains 8 16KB .BIN files, so I don't understand where these compressed files are needed for?
