Excellent work: excellent program(s), excellent documentation!
And very intuitive and user friendly : Now my five year old son understands how to use 'dads old computer' Running Naked in a Field of Flowers

Two questions:
Do we need an option in sr.ini to defaultly map internal spg to mfr psg ports?
Do we need sr to be added to all shipped mfr carts and added in all mfr restore files Hannibal ?

The MSX Datapack vol.3 advises to switch to R800 DRAM mode only during or just after the boot of MSX and keep this mode until next Reset or the shutdown. In contrast it is possible to switch Z80 <-> R800 ROM mode anytime.

My guess is that's because switching to DRAM mode is a bit slow because it needs copying ROM to DRAM. Is'nt DRAM the default mode ? Anyway, I've never had a problem with that in SofaRun, it's just done once before launching the game, so that's fine.

a 3Mhz MSX copies 200k per second. I dont think the warning is about a quartersecond of boot time.
I think dram mode slamms the top RAM pages and when someone used the memory then he is dead.

Hi! Could you extend Sofarun compatibility to the MegaFlashROM SCC of 1st type? Wink

You're probably right.

Thanks Bastiaan, first time someone mentions the documentation, that really makes me happy (coding has always been a pleasure but I do not like writing doc so much !).

I think you can do that with the Default Settings. There are some PSG & SCC settings that should allow to use MFR PSG, just make them default and they will be applied for all games (not used that so much, so let me know if it does not work).

That's a question for Manuel. SofaRun is free so I'd have no problem if it's the default tool for MFR.

I wanted to have one of these old MFR (that has a real SCC chip right ?), but Manuel had no more units left.
If it's using an "OPFX" like program to flash, it should not be too hard to add. Is this one emulated in openMSX ?

FL.COM does not suit you?

To my knowledge, only M File Manager can offer a choice of commands to execute for a same extension name.
