Bring on your list of troublesome games then. Are they on the compatibility list?

Here is the thing the list of games I am talking about are indie games and not the old release commercial games. However, once I find my sd that contains the mm and sofa that lost I will form a list and bring it on here. I just don’t know where I lost the dang sd card

You start by inserting the new SD card into your Storage Cartridge and boot your MSX. If it boots into NEXTOR (from a ROM disk) go to MSX Basic by typing BASIC followed by enter.

In MSX Basic type CALL FDISK. Follow tthe instructions on screen, you’ll have to delete all existing partitions and create 1 new one. In the end write the new partition table and when it is finished turn off the MSX and take the SD card to your PC.

On your PC copy the Nextor main files (NEXTOR.SYS and COMMAND2.COM) to the root and create a UTILS folder into which you install all the DOS2/Nextor tools. You can also add other small programs there (e.g. VGMPLAY.COM).

For MM an SofaRun it is better to create separate folders (these can be a sub directory under UTILS). So let’s create UTILS\MM and UTILS\SR, put all the SR and MM files in the corresponding folders. For SofaRun you can edit the INI files to change the location it holds its settings and cache (I prefer to have those in the UTILS\SR instead of the root).

It’s good to create also an empty TEMP folder in the root of the SD and if you want you can put the DOS2/Nextor help files into a folder called HELP.

Last but not least you create an AUTOEXEC.BAT in the root of the SD that contains:

SET PATH=A:\;A:\UTILS;A:\UTILS\MM;A:\UTILS\SR
SET HELP=A:\HELP
SET TEMP=A:\TEMP

If your MSX booted from ROM disk into Nextor earlier you may also want to create an empty NEXTOR.DAT file so your MSX will boot from SD (although this only works on some older Nextor releases). We’ll figure stuff out once you get that far Wink

I got a 1.84 GB FAT16 SD..formatted. In windows it shows as Fat only...which is 16. When I went to MSX and tried it..I got stuck at this screen:

There is nothing I can do to get out of this screen and I was unable to delete or format or install partition in MSX. Any help?

Might be a card thatbis not recognized by the MFR. Do you have a (working) floppy drive inside your MSX? Maybe with an update of the MFR it works…

These games failed to run with me. I own an MSX 2 (not MSX 2+), Sanyo Wavy J23:

A) Dios

Issue: It starts correctly, it loads fine the introduction (I am unable to skip the introduction or cutscene) and when it asks for B-Disk. I press 2 key, I press ctrl 2, I press f2, I press everything that have two on it with any combination of keys ctrl-2, alt-2, etc you name. Then I press space bar or esc or any key in my keyboard nothing happens. It doesn't load...nothing works...it just stuck asking for B-Disk and that is that.

So I am unsure what to do with it.

B) uruLogic[File-Hunter.com][SCC]

Issue: Is corrupt. Images all scrambled, I am unable to switch the dots and it is all jibberish and not refreshing correctly, issues with game play all together

C) Gradius III Legends - Imanok (2001)

Issue: It doesn't scroll the map at all...it takes for every draw the tiles, walls, screen and the ship goes up and down, monsters comes at you, screen is black and slowly I see from left to draw drawn the map as I am shooting and killing but the objects don't move or scroll from right to left like any shootup game. When the map is drawn...over the old map..slowly again from left to righ it draws new scene of the map....and I die if I hit an object I cannot see that is black until the map is drawn.

D) An RPG game I forgot it's name I will get it later....it plays the introduction...doesn't give me ability to skip it at all...graphics are superb...story of a sick boy who is treated by a princess and a king and then monsters invade the peaceful town, the princess goes out to fight the monsters as the king is sick but never returns. I deal with my wound and go out to rescue the princess but the game freezes title. It freezes randomly and crashes randomly. I am unsure what tod o with this one.

I will get the name of that awesome game later...I want to play an RPG and finish it..so guys help me with this thanks.
