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, using your remote or a 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.

This is the full version of fMSX. It is free of ads and nagging.

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.

MSX in my pocket, much more portable than the original hardware I have with monitor, bulky game cartridges and cassettes. Author is very responsive too, bugs can get fixed within days of reporting. I wish it could save all advanced settings in the save state file (I do some MSX development and sometimes need to change the memory mapper for software I am working on), but otherwise it's quite nice

This is a well-featured emulator that is maintained by an excellent dev - when I encountered an issue with using a Bluetooth controller, they investigated and fixed the problem within a short time. Highly recommended and well worth the low price for the deluxe version features.

I like it 😊 but... I wish 1st : if we can capture video of our game and save and sharing video files. And i wish 2nd feature : to be able to save the resources of the ROM game in folders (sprites, BG graphics, Audio FX/Music,....) it would be helpfull to the game's developers. :) And also can remember each rom and save thumbs of the game and generate fast play shortcut. Please add that features.

The video recording is really better off being done by an external app: whatever I add is going to be worse. There is already a way to create desktop shortcut for playing each game. Do you suggest adding these for separate saves of the same game?
