Hi, I'm new to the MSX emulation and to this forum, but from what I've seen in the BlueMSX emulator, it's a very good emulator. However, I recently downloaded an english translated Snatcher, but it comes in 4 disk files. The README.txt of the Snatcher060.zip I got states that I only need to load the snatcher0.disk but when I use it on BlueMSX, it tells me to either 0. Play Game, or 1. Install. When I try to play the game, it says that I need to boot disk 1, but I can't. If I try install, it says something about DOS2. This is the first game I tried on BlueMSX, and I need help ASAP. Thanks in advance to anyone who helps me out.

Heres the link to where I got the game in case your wondering:

When it asks you to boot Disk 1, you have to switch Disks by going to File -> Disk Drive A -> Insert < Disk 1 >

If BlueMSX restarts after inseting Disk 1, do this:
File -> Disk Drive A -> uncheck "Reset After Insert"

Couple things to remember while playing this game...

1.) Make sure you have something like 256kb ram, the game won't run w/o it.
2.) Add SCC+ module for best music: File -> Cartiridge Slot 1 -> Special -> SCC+ Cartridge
3.) Don't use Save States or Quick saves. They won't work when you try to load them. So you must save using the game's method.
4.) The game is extremely slow in loading, so be very patient. Plus, theres is nothing you can do to increase load times either.

I forgot one last thing that throws everyone off when play this game. In Snatcher, when you're in a gunfight the menu says "S" for the Gun. "S" stands for the "Shift" key, and to aim/shoot use the Numkey Pad according to the 3x3 grid.

The Install option is to install it onto a harddisk... In general harddisk stuff requires DOS2, which is the reason for the Install option to require DOS2 as well.

I was recently playing a spanish version of sd snatcher.
However at the beginning of the game you go to the pier,
and you visit the left building.
After finding the timebomb, you are supposed to jump out of the window of this building.
This doesnt work, and the game kinda doesnt continue.

Anyone seen this bug before, or is my disk bad ???

Better get the IPS Patch files for the improved English version from the MSX IPS Patch Archive instead.
