Nevermind, I'll try to reproduce that here with openMSX.

- You have an HB-F9P MSX with 128KB.
- You have an ESE-SCC cartridge in solt 1, and a Sunrise CF ATA-IDE in cartridge slot 2 (with MSX DOS 2.20).
- You try to launch a small ROM with "Force Flash" set to "No"
- You get an "Out of segments"' error (not an "Out of Memory" error).
- No other extensions ?

Just validate these points or not. Also, let me know which ROM you are trying to launch, and if it's in a .ZIP file or not, and if you load something in AUTOEXEC.BAT before launching SofaRun.

Heya!

I'm testing v2.5. Probably it's not a bug cause txt says that for some features you need 256kb of RAM, but really, to load a 16kb ROM isn't enought a 128kb RAM machine like my VG8235? It says "Out of segments" I can sure change SR.INI to use ODO but then it won't open MegaROMS.
Any plan to add an option on the launch menu like... "Open with..." and then select primary launcher or secundary?
I'll keep testing, as I'm on holidays and for me "SofaRun" is "BedRun" Smile Nice to play lying on bed.

Thx for the work!

Btw.. as I read now the past post....

I'm using:
MSX2 VG8235 (128kb RAM machine)
LPE MMC SD reader, with a DOS2 SD card
On Autoexec, just PATH=A:\; and then call to SR
Tried 16kb ROM like EI.ROM or 32kb ROM like GALAGA.ROM

Yeah, I know... 16KB roms should work with 128KB if you do not flash them ("Force Flash" set to No), at least it works here with Nextor (there's just one 16KB segment free).
Any external program launched by SofaRun now requires 4 segments (SofaRun loads the external program in new segments). It makes the "launch time" much faster and code way simpler compared to the previous version (filling keyboard buffer, re-launching SofaRun with parameters...).

Yes, this could be specified in SR.INI by adding a label to each launcher (and have several launchers for each extension). Labels could be "Edit", "Start", "Open with ODO"... whatever you want. I might consider it in a next version.

Hi Alshamaa,

Check the SR.INI file, it has default directories that you'll need to change if you don't have a disk (or sdcard) in drive A:

####################################################################
[SYSTEM]
####################################################################

# Path where your save files (PAC-SRAM (.SRM), ROM or Game Master
# files, user disks (.USR)) will be placed (current directory if
# not defined).
SAVEPATH=A:\SAVES

# Path where ZIP-extracted files (.UNZ) and patched ROMs (.PRM) will
# be placed (current directory if not defined).
TMPPATH=A:\TMP

# Path where game settings (.GST) files will be placed (current
# directory if not defined).
SETTINGSPATH=A:\SETTINGS

Also be sure to use the latest 2.5 version. Let me know if that works.

Hi Sebbeug,
Yes, it should work on all MSX-DOS 2 MSX machines. Which game are you trying to launch?
