The megaRAM has 11 watchers, I wonder how many will end in bids?
Breakout - 8 watchers - no bids!

I have never had execROM work with any other device other than a MegaRAM, although from MSX-DOS it is possible to run a 8k, 16k, or 32k ROM image.

I know of no other device that, apart from the ESE-SCC cartridge that will allow you to run Mega ROM images. I have one of those too - but it is faulty! I use the SCC part inconjuntion with my MegaRAM. The MegaRAM will not allow the SCC cartridge to function correctly if they are in the same slot/sub slot.

I have a 512k MegaRAM, very useful for playing MG2, I havent managed to get R-Type to work yet.

Have you used the R-TYPE ROM that was modified to work with MegaRAM?

I have only succeeded to run R-TYPE using my MegaFlashSCC cartridge. But it is really a nice game, whatever anyone might say. And it demonstrates what can be done even in MSX using a C compiler. The only thing that I do not like that much about R-TYPE is that the FM sound is worse than the PSG sound. I prefer the PSG BSO, it is more "solid".

Hi Robsy - one day I shall visit you in Barcelona! R-type loads ok with the patch file, but crashes at the end of the first stage.

Ok, I see. Now that you mention it, I think that I didn't pass the first stage. Damn hard!

With the MegaFlashSCC cartridge you can play msxroms?

Good question, Padial does some products, although I am not 100% sure of these. I got one of his slot expanders, which worked very well - apart from the face that I could not use the cartridges in there housing. I have a DDX slot expander courtesy of Ginseng, it works very well. It is more of a case of look for a second hand one.

You can buy the MegaFlashROM from Manuel Pazos just like I did ;)
