Hello guys, I have just created a new tool to create backup ROMs of MSX cartridges.
With this tool you can create ROM files of your MSX Cartridges with different sizes, from 16 Kb up to 2048 Kb.
And with the most common mapper types, like Konami, ASCII 8 Kb, ASCII 16 Kb.

Its necessary to have a slot expander or another device to disable the cartridge ROM and allow booting into DOS.

You need to select the Slot and Subslot of the cartrdige game and that is it.

Please, test the tool and let me know about the results.

I know that MFR has a way to disable booting the cartridge ROM, but does anyone know if there is a way to achieve the same using a Carnivore2 and booting into nextor to use this?

With a slot expander that disables the cartridge rom you can boot into DOS and use Power Chupin to copy any cartridge that uses the Konamis' or ASCII mappers.

On my Carnivore2 I use NYYRIKI's SKIP2.ROM. However, it not only prevents a game cartridge in slot 2 from booting, but also disables Nextor. So I have to boot from floppy into MSX-DOS 1. But that's enough for this specific job.

Tested successfully in Zemmix Neo. Autodetect mapper function should be fine Wink

Cool. What game did you rip AxelStone with your Zemmix Neo?
