I am, I was just making sure the MESS autobuilder was appeased before moving the changes on to MAME. Don't want to break the build, after all.

This seems to happen with other drivers as well (I tried genesis, gameboy and saturn). This is on Fedora 12 x86_64.

Did you do a clean build?

I did, and it helped. Are there any guidelines when a clean build is needed? Or is it just "try it if it breaks"?

Always do a clean build or get a pre-compiled binary from bobz or somewhere else.

As a rule of thumb, if anything under src/emu or the makefile changes do a clean build. That doesn't cover all cases, but it's a reasonable heuristic.

Be aware that the pre-compiled binaries on my site are not always clean built. They might be broken too.

RM Nimbus Driver
(update to RM nimbus driver, it will now boot from floppy and the keyboard now works, though the video is still buggy.)

Found a disk image called WELC.FLP on Internet which content MS-DOS 3.10
I made following:
Formated a real floppy disk (720KB) on normal PC (Win98 because WinXP not support this format) and not on real RM Nimbus PC.
Used the tool " 2FLOPPY " to read WELC.FLP image and write on the formatted Floppy Disk.
Used WinImage to read the Floppy Disk (A:) and saved as WELC.IMA

Unfortunately, my created Floppy Disk image is not booting.
My questions are now, made I some mistakes, is the reason i need to format the 720KB Disk on RM Nimbus PC or is the reason the RM Nimbus driver ?

Except Raiden, any other game (CD or Floppy Disk) can be loaded ?

Nope, pretty much limited to real-mode DOS applications. Most FM Towns software requires protected mode. I can't even run simple protected mode test programs that I've written using Towns-GCC (GCC 2.45 cross-compiler, generates protected mode .EXP executables)
Maybe there are other real-mode games out there, but I'm sure most require protected mode.


Found another game called " Prince of Persia (.chd)" which I can load. The sound is not bad but can not play the game because of some graphic problems.



Raiden looks good. smile
