Hello!

I'm testing my Carnivore 2 in my MSX computers and have found a problem in Panasonic MSX 2+ that I dont have on my Sony F-900.

The Panasonic machines dont like my Carnivore? My Joysticks? or somethin else... the problems are:
- Carnivore 2 mais menu - only controller 2 works no controller 1 signal
- Boot.cas menu onlu controller 1 works
- Sofarun 8 both controllers work
- Boot up 1942 [Zemina] - controller 2 only and only my Mega Drive 2 MSX adaptor works up / down and fire during game no left and right and no second botton.
- Sword of IANNA - works OK with original XE1-Pro and MD2MSX in Port 1

On my Sony F-900 all games work properly with any Joystick and MD2MSX on Port 1.

Is there some configuration need to be done?

Are these results consistent?, I mean, can you repeat each one and get the same behaviour?, even wiggling the plugged joystick connector?

Do you use Sofarun? If so, I'd like to check if the same happens here.

Yes they are consistent and always happen with that game, probably more that I'm not aware, I tested in both MSX, and I'm going to test on more MSX, but onm Sony F-900 works all good.

Yes Panasonic A1-WX and A1-WSX with SofaRun v.8.0 on Carnivore 2 with firmware 2.40.

1942 MSX2 version, the ACII verson has corruped grafics and locks and the Zemina version does what I described up there.

Edit 3:
On Sony HB-F900, Sony HB-F1XD and Philips 8235 works perfectly with controller 1 on all cenarios, both the XE-1 Pro or the MD2MSX.

Sorry, I should've read better.
I'll see what 1942.rom does on carnivore 2 with sofarun 8 with a Panasonic Powerpad on a few of my computers. If I run into oddities, I'll check what happens if I use a different setup.

Did you set the CPU mode to turbo? Maybe even the default in SofaRun (I don’t have any 2+ turbo machine to test on) but with turbo R in R800 you can also run into issues...

I've tried an explicitly tagged as Zemina version of 1942 on a Carnivore 2, using a Panasonic Powerpad in a Panasonic FS-A1FX, WX and WSX in port 1. I ran it from Sofarun 8 with default settings. The turbo mode was not activated.
Works as a charm.
You might want to check your joystickports/joysticks.

Just one sidenote. I only have IDE active on my Carnivore 2. No FM and no bootmenu. But I hardly doubt that will affect the outcome.

I have everything on default, but Carnivore 2 as it's original boot menu with roms flashed it boot there and them I select to go to DOS using the config Memory + FM + ...

How do I boot to DOS with out going to that Carnivore 2 boot menu?

Joystick are perfectly fine, they work every were incluing on the Panasonic when I play Sowd of IANNA.

If you think the troubles lie there, you could throw all off with c2man.com (iirc that's the name of the tool) and just put the ide rom back on it. I did that and never felt the urge to get the rest back. For me there is no value in them.

Press A i the boot menu to select the entry you want for auto-start (in my case: it's the Def: entry). In the latest firmware you can also set up the auto-start timer (e.g. to 0, to directly auto-start). If you still want the boot menu, hold F4 while booting.

Yeah I am sure it is not the joysticks, you mentioned they work fine in SofaRun so ther does not seem to be an issue with the ports either (but I am not certain we can rule it out completely). When you start these games, which device does SofaROM use? Is it Carnivore2-RAM? Or Memory Mapper? Did you flash one of the SOFAROM?.ROM (where ? Is 1, 2 or 4) into the Carnivore2 using c2man? I recommend you do that if you haven’t so far.

Also you could try flashing the games with c2man and start them from the boot menu to see if the behavior is different.
