Does this require a specific TOS version? All I get is the green desktop screen, and none of the games will start. The TOS (named rom) is in the DCastaway folder with the dcastaway.dge file. My games are .st format. What am I doing wrong?

I think I used TOS 1.04 UK.
You have to select the disk, pressing A, and then "Run" if it is the first game you choose, if you change the disk use "Reset" after selecting the disk.
Some may fail but most I have tried work. Those in .stx format do not work.

https://boards.dingoonity.org/gcw-releases/dcastaway-an-atari-st-emulator/ Here they explain how to make it work for the GCW0 version, which is what it is based on. In case it can help you

Thanks for responding. My TOS was TOS 1.04 US, so I tried what you used (TOS 1.04 UK) and still no good. I was trying on a Powkiddy V90 and I tried on a PocketGo and got the same results. I've used DCastaway on the Dingoo 320 so I know how the buttons should work. No matter what game I try, I always get the green desktop screen with the 2 floppy disk Icons + the Trash bin. From there I can't do anything.

I have uploaded an incorrect version, while I do not update github, you have to choose with the file with B and not with A, in the rest of the menus it is with A.
In a while I update the release.
Thanks for trying
