Source: MSX Mailinglist

The New Image has just released version 0.9990 of their Gameboy emulator. This emulator is aimed at the MSX turboR, although it works on MSX2 as well, and uses dynamic recompilation in order to run Gameboy games with acceptable speed. As the version number indicates, a Graphics9000 from Sunrise is now a requirement. Other changes are a more accurate CPU core.

Great stuff, it's a very interesting and impressive project.

Note that at least on my openMSX test, Tetris didn't work anymore on MSX2, but it did work on turboR. No problems with GEM 0.8, though. Ah well, it's supposed to be used on turboR anyway.

Humm... I see that GEMZ has been discontinued. I didn't have a Z380, but actually it was **the only** software which really supported it.

Turbo-r+Graphics 9000 to emulate a Gameboy? Very sad.

Morg, I hope you're joking and if not: you obviously have no idea what you're talking about....

Iirc it took a 486 DX/33 to emulate an MSX2 at 100%. But ok, talking real emulation now, GEM has dynamic recompilation, which is a bit different. So we can't compare that with conventional emulationl

Emulation is often costly. Must only to take in account that one is trying to to via sw what a hw is prebuilt to do.
Try to emulate a arm android device on a first class pc and you notice how much cpu consuming is.
