About this game

fMSX is an MSX home computer emulator. It runs MSX, MSX2, and MSX2+ games and other software on your Android phone or tablet. Play MSX games with Bluetooth gamepads, Xperia gaming buttons, Moga gamepads, or iCade joysticks. Save gameplay at any time and restart once you get killed. Record MSX music to MIDI files and use them as ringtones. Play with friends over WiFi or Internet, using NetPlay. Play on a 55" GoogleTV screen, using your remote controller or USB joystick.

* Optimized for Android devices using assembler and 3D hardware acceleration, and running MSX software at the fastest possible speed.
* Full screen portrait or landscape mode emulation, with options for simulating TV scanlines and fuzzy TV display.
* Loads ROMs (*.rom), disk images (*.dsk) and tape images (*.cas).
* Supports PSG, SCC, and FM-PAC (OPLL) MSX sound chips.
* Emulates joystick using touch screen, Bluetooth controllers, physical keyboard, or accelerometer.
* Emulates MSX mouse.
* Supports GoogleTV devices running Android 4.x (Jelly Bean), such as LG G2/G3.
* Supports Moga, iCade, Nyko PlayPad, and other Bluetooth and USB gamepads.
* Supports Xperia Play gaming buttons.
* Network play feature lets you play with other fMSX users over the network.
* State Exchange feature lets you swap saved MSX states with other users.

This is a free, limited version of fMSX that may show ads and nag you to buy the full version. For the full, ad-free version, get fMSX Deluxe. Or, you can buy any one of my other emulators and the fMSX ads will stop.

fMSX package itself does not contain any MSX programs. You should place your own MSX files onto the SD card before running fMSX.

Please, do not run any software you do not own with fMSX. The author cannot and will not tell you where to find free MSX games or other software.

Please, report any encountered problems here:

The emulator works great. The problem is games for the system are just so so. Not the fault of the emulator. I played a few games and the sound effects are very tinny sounding. Not pleasing to the ear. This devolper does a really got job on these emulators. I bought the coleco vision emulator. The games on that are top notch.

Problem is, you can play games yeah that's fine but when you save states, you can't load state unless you buy the premium version. Fine with having to deal with ads since it's free version but not allowing to load save states is COMPLETE BS. Creator is a complete hack. DONT DOWNLOAD ITS 2022 EVERYONE WHO PLAYS ROMS WANTS ACCESS TO SAVE STATES.

The emulator is fine, but the only problem is that you can't map the keyboard keys to your controller. I'm using a PS5 controller, and I can only apply joystick controls to it. Metal Gear 1 and Metal Gear 2 requires keyboard controls tho. Why can't we map keyboard controls onto our controllers?

"Settings | Input | Assign Keyboard Keys" only digital controller buttons should work, analog controls do nit have keycodes.
