I'm interested on buying the GP2X game console for playing MSX games through the fmsx emulator.
Have you ever done this? Is it a good experience?

Best regards,

Maybe it's better to buy a Dingoo? Supported by both fMSX and openMSX and it could be cheaper...

Dingoo is more modern, so more powerful, I guess. I have a Dingoo myself and openMSX runs really great on it.

Wouter (of openMSX team) has a GP2X. We've never really compared them, but he did say that the GP2X is slower.

I have a GP2X Wiz and my experience with Wiz fMsx is bad:

*Do not load all the discs images
*The sound is good but the volume is very low
*If you put the emulation at 60 frames per second, the emulation is fast and the music run fast, why?
*Bad screen scale
*Screen 7 do not look good (not a smart scale to show the better definition)
*MSX2+ emulation lacs of the screen6 logo at boot and Horizontal hardware scroll.
*If you choose the high sound volume the emulator has constant clicks.

On PSP is the same buggy emulation, I am waiting to PSP Vita, this console has enought power to run BlueMSX, a much better emulator.

Try Dingoo and OpenMsx emulator.
