Topic: Emulation

A new version of blueMSX is released. Shimanuki Koshi sent in a list of bug reports and feature requests, translated from japanese forums. This release also includes SLotmans scale 2x feature and zip support based on his work even though it looks quite different. Here are the new features and bug fixes:

  • Stereo (and mono) sound.
  • Advanced mixer to control volume and pan of individual audio chips in real time.
  • Zipped rom and dsk support, including drag and drop. Supports multiple roms/dsks in the same zip file.
  • Support for 512 pixel wide SCREEN6, SCREEN7, and TEXT80 screens.
  • Support for 256 color SCREEN8.
  • Scale 2x monitor renderer.
  • Drag and drop to the blueMSX program icon. Emulator starts with the dragged file.
  • Fixed bug in PSG that prevented some samples to be played.
  • Fixed bug in the bios patch that made some disks hang the PC.

I don't like emulators, because they don't give me the true MSX experience. I must admit, though, this blueMSX with its special video options does come close! Finally an emulator that understands what's it all about. MSX has to be experienced on a low resolution TV or monitor. And that's exactly what this emulator tries to give. I like it!

must say; I've been able to run some softs which I never got to on nlMSX (used to be my fave emu) This one is very appealing...

And does it run on openMSX? If not, please let us know! Smile (So we can fix the bug...)

Hi, I got a question,bluemsx is the first emulator I use and it works fine but I can't run multi-disks on the emulator. I can run the first disk but how abouth the 2nd one and third one. (b.t.w. all disks are in one .dsk file). How can I choose the other disks?
