About this app

openMSX is an open source emulator of the MSX home computer system.

By default, it comes with a minimal firmware rom, known as c-bios, which enables you to run most cartridge based MSX games.

In order to run such a game, you can copy a dump of the cartridge onto the storage memory of your Android device and then insert the so-called ROM into the virtual cartridge slot of the emulator using the on-screen menu that you can open with the standard Android menu key.

You can also install the firmware of your real MSX into openMSX. See
http://openmsx.sourceforge.net/manual/setup.html for further details. This enables you to play around with MSX Basic and all other features provided by the standard MSX firmware.

Furthermore, if you are a power user, you may want to read the user manual for an overview of the advanced features of openMSX: http://openmsx.org/manual/user.html

It's horrible, there is no UI at all, it is meant for mobile devices yet no android ui for browsing games, just some clunky unacceptable sdl based ui which is impractical for routine use.

What's new

openMSX 0.15.0—Sinterklaasphemy—is a release with many changes! This time the major enhancements are support for ColecoVision (including Super Game Module and MegaCart mapper), Musical Memory Mapper and Carnivore 2. And we have fixed a lot of long-standing OPL4 emulation issues, thanks to Valley Bell. Furthermore, we overhauled the Android port, you'll mostly notice the scale factor 2 there. And several other issues were fixed. Please read the release notes for more details
