Hi guys,
Could you just re-download the SofaRun package and retry ?

It's a little different but the problem with the JoySNES still occurs.

Hi GDX,
I also noticed the problem here, but only when the SNES pad is not connected on the JoySNES interface (seems like the JoySNES is returning random bits when it has no pad connected). Can you confirm ?

SNES pad must always be connected on the JoySNES interface when the JoySNES is connected on the MSX otherwise it may not work properly. So we have always to connect the Joypad to the JoySNES before connecting the JoySNES to the MSX, but the issue with SofaRun doesn't come from that. This bug occurs from v.6.1 only. No issue with all previous versions.

Works fine here with my JoySNES. Might send you a version for test. Other question: are you using a regular SNES pad or a clone ?

Sofarun seems to disable my SCC?... When I listen to an MGS-file using MUPLAY or MGSEL (with MGSDRV) from within Sofarun, I hear no SCC sounds. When I start these players from the DOS prompt, the SCC in my megaflashrom is detected and played. Furthermore, since these players have some TSR resident behaviour, I can start other applications such as a text editor or a GFX viewer while listening to a song. So I can also start Sofarun. As soon as I do that, the SCC sounds from the MGS file played get disabled. But the song plays on. Now only with PSG and OPLL.

In the Sofarun settings there is this 'external SCC' option, but I have the SCC in the megaflashrom. Other option is manual selection in which slot the SCC is located, but the manual tells me this option is only to be used when having external SCC.

Any help would be appreciated Smile

Let's use a common developper excuse "it's not a bug, it's a feature" Smile SofaRun is disabling SCC at start to shut down SCC sounds after a soft-reset (you can soft-reset a game in SofaRun with a combination of joyMega keys, the problem is the MSX BIOS code does not mute the SCC, and I had no more room left in the resident reset code...).

I'll add an option to disable that behavior in the next release !

Not sure, I'll check that. You did not reply to my question about the type of joypad you're using (original or clone). I've seen SNES clone pads not working at all with JoySNES (when they work very well with a real SNES), but no erratic behavior like described.

Ah, I see. But does that also explain why the SCC is disabled when I start MUPLAY.COM or MGSEL.COM from within Sofarun? Then there is no 'disable SCC at start up' because Sofarun is already running. When I, within Sofarun, start another application that supports SCC, for example Trilotracker, the SCC does work.
