|I guess the problem is that MAME doesn't have any kind of banking to select a different cart, therefore when the hardware asks for another cart, it will always see the same one in every slot.|

Found some related info in FBA Neo-Geo source:
* bit 6 of memory location 0x300081
* = 0 -> 1/2 slot MVS
* = 1 + bit 5 of 0x320001 = 0 -> 4 slot MVS
* = 1 -> 6 slot MVS
* On MVS hardware with multiple slots, address 0x380021 is used to select the
* active slot.

|Is this still the case after multislot support has been added?|
