Yes, that did the trick! I used the .dsk image you pointed me to, and I was able to update to version 1.0.3V, and it works just fine.
Thanks very much! I am very glad to be up and running on the latest update, and I look forward to any future updates that you may have. As always, please let me know if you have any experiments that you would like me to run. So far, with all of your effort, MShell is running fine on the CoCo3FPGA, latest version, and with the new Analog Interface board. I’m using the mouse! Yay!

If this doesn't fix it, then something is not not right in the CocoFPGA version of NitrOS9 as this all works perfectly in Vcc running NitrOS9 v3.3.0 and did work fine on my real Coco before I took it down.

This would cause what you are seeing as well as it sounds like everything is working, just menus not showing correctly, therefore not selecting correctly. This all ties back to the ms1.men file which holds all the menus, their loacations and relations.
