I might have already asked this question before (apologies if I did), but how exactly do I get the stand-alone King's Valley Plus dsk file working in openMSX? Thanks.

Try by using the following loader. (without POKE)

10 KEYOFF:COLOR15,4,4:SCREEN1,2:LOCATE10,11:PRINT"Loading..."
20 BLOAD"king.usr",R

How do I configure that particular leader, and reset it to default? I'm assuming poke means cheat code.

For MSX1, I use National CF-3300.

Poke here probably means the poke to identify the RAM, available in many variations like Philips (POKE -1,170) and Sony (POKE -1,255 IIRC) or as the Universal POKE: poke-1,(15-peek(-1)\16)*17 which works on most MSX’s as long as they have 64kB RAM in a single slot. My guess is gdx says it is not needed here.

It seems they were planning on releasing it on the same day as the normal version of King's Valley, based on the flyer. Of course, it wasn't, and was instead included on a Konami Game Collection in 1988.

Isn't this game auto booting?

Yes, many copies available on the net have the poke-1,170. It must be replaced by poke-1,(15-peek(-1)\16)*17 in general but this poke is useless for this game. So it is better to replace the loader with the one I give if you have the version with the POKE. Loading will be cleaner and faster.
