Hello all, that's my question. Is there anyway to simulate ROM + DSK un 1Chip / Zemmix? For example to play Solid snake and be able to save game in dsk.

Thanks.

You can try with SofaRun: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LY-cHZSeV58. Just don't launch Metal Gear 2 with Game Master, it has the save feature integrated.

Also MGLOCM is a good way to load ROMs on OCM or you can use MGLOAD (it came with the original OCM on the CD) and EP can be used for DSK emulation but maybe only works with megaSD kernel (it’s been a while) and not with Nextor.

@Louthrax You are right, I use SR very often and I didn't know this feature! Thanks so much!

@sdsnatcher73 that was my first try, I tried to load a blank disk with EP, then load ROM with MGLOCM. The game works fine but after save game, it hangs up.

Not sure if a disk with EP and a ROM with MGLOAD can be loaded at the same time with the OCM tools? The simplest for saving games is to save directly to the SD Card anyway.

Let me know if that works well (Metal Gear 2 can be a bit problematic because it's using extra RAM slots or something like that).

I tried this (using Game Master 2) with The Maze of Galious, as enhanced by FRS. After typing the file name, the game hangs up. Is this fantastic feature not compatible with this version of MoG? Hmm, the same happens with the unpatched game.

I'd really like to save to CF card in Maze of Galious Smile Is that possible?

Hi Manuel,

Try in Z80 mode. MoG is not very playable in R800 mode anyway Smile

Something has changed in the latest Nextor release that makes in-game disk accesses unstable (seems linked to the same cause that prevents Aleste 2 from working without patch). If you revert to a previous Nextor release, it should work in R800 modes too. There's something related to the HYBRID_MODE macro in Nextor related to that (some logic that switches Z80 / R800 modes in order to access out-of-Nextor drivers in a "safe" Z80 mode), to be investigated...

Note that there's also an option in SofaRun to have dialogues in English (even the if game is launched from a Japanese MSX).

Let me know if that helps.
