When you load a .dfi from the MMC64 what does the this line actually mean ?

"Clusterbuffer disabled, not enough RAM"

What RAM is it after ?

I'm not sure but I think it needs Retro Replay RAM to make it work.

Cluster Handlers:
Dload has 3 different ways to get the start address of a cluster: continuous, buffered and plain. 'Continuous' is the fastest one, but it only works with non-scattered files. 'Buffered' uses the Retro Replay ram as a cluster buffer. It's speed is almost the same as 'continuous', but it can only handle images up to a certain size. 'Plain' is the slowest routine, but has no limitations. The dfi plugin selects the fastest available mode. In debug mode you have the choice. To enter debug mode, hold 'Right Shift' while pressing return to start the plugin. Hold the shift key until the first message appears.

Hello. I would like to take this opportunity to enquire about documentation. I am specifically looking for the DFI specification. I tried googling, but only got pr0n. Can anyone point me to a DFI file format description?
