How to deal with this error message "Illegal ROM Data file name"?

Latest Updated:09/15/2006


I am getting the error message "Illegal ROM Data file name". How should I deal with it?


There are two possible reasons for this message.
1.There is a space in the path of the hexadecimal data file Spaces cannot be used in directory names or file names. (Example: "My Documents", "Program Files", etc.)
2. The mask file was made with only OSD font data which was set for the hexadecimal file.
When setting only OSD font data, make the hexadecimal data file so that FFh is set at more than 1 byte in the ROM area, then set it as a program file. Refer to Appendix A in the MM User's Manual for details on file formats.
