Re: PC98 core

Hello Mr Puu, I have found where the problem comes from. It's the version of the main Mister that's causing the problem with your Core. With the latest version it doesn't work. If I go back to a previous version, it's okay @tontonkaloun, Well done, thanks for sharing your findings! Could you just p...

Re: PC98 core

Is the menu displayed when you press F12? If the menu is displayed, the core itself should be running. Since Zet is equivalent to 8086 / V30 / 80186, the BIOS of the model at that time is required. As for the era, if it is not the BIOS of the era of PC-9801VM and PC-98DO, the instructions related t...

Re: Acorn Archimedes core

:D I am doing some progress here!

I have replaced the command

configure idefsdircache 32k with

configure systemsize 32k

and bingo!! It booted this time! But I am stuck with a new error message when OS 4.2 starts which is 'Please insert disc CROS4'.

I am getting there though :mrgreen:

Hi Alkadian, After having done the reset, have you checked that your HDF was still mounted ? Between the HDF mount and the Reset Ctrl+Alt+AltGr action, try to save the configuration (so, before the reset) to be sure. Unless you're sure that your HDF was still mounted. When you entered the manually ...

Please refer to the notes below which I put together some time ago: 1. Open the mister.ini file in the main SD folder. 2. Look for the line ;bootcore=lastcore. 3. Uncomment it and replace ‘lastcore’ with the .mra file corresponding to the rom you want to start with. For istance if you want to start ...
