let's reply first to sdsnatcher73:
I'm already using sofarun in the way you describe, so it seems I'm just using carnivore2 as an IDE card reader, nothing else!
this is like Manuel was saying.
For Manuel:
the issue with frequency is on an MSX1 machine, so now it makes sense
I have tried the following games on sofarun:
- desolator
If I run loadrom ( on my MSX2 machine) it loads perfectly, but not with sofarun: it runs with only the spaceship, but no enemies at all, very weird
Let me look at the other games and will report back

Thank guys

javiermi: no, the Carnivore 2 has a fully configurable MegaRAM function, as sdsnatcher73 explained. SofaRun says it uses "Carnivore 2 RAM", when it's using that. This function enables you to run almost any ROM file perfectly from that RAM. And after a reset, it's gone. Ideal, in my opinion Smile

Which MSX1 machine do you have?

Desolator is actually a tape game. These games are best run with a cracked-for-disk version.
Still, if it works on your MSX2, it can probably also work on your MSX1 with the C2 and SofaRun. Which loadrom are you referring to? The one made by trunks? As far as I know, this game is only 32kB, so it should be able to run anywhere.

Manuel
I tried desolator on sofarun on the multicontroller and works perfectly, so I checked the configuration and it says:
device: "memory mapper", but on carnivore2 is "carnivore2- RAM"
So I changed it to the same on the settings, and now works perfectly
so it seems, this is one of these games where you cannot run in RAM

I don't know the version of "loadrom" , somebody pass it to me with a bunch of files

Always make sure it's trying Carnivore 2 RAM first for ROM files Smile
