Newsletter #9

by MSX Resource Center on 18-12-2002, 00:50

Hello hello, and welcome to the ninth MSX Resource Center newsletter. So here we are once again with a load of MSX news, just before we enter the new year. As usual, we have quite a lot of news for you, so lets get started!

First of all, we'd like to draw your attention to a little competition we have going on at the moment. The MRC Snowfall Challenge.

NLMSX 0.48

by MSX Resource Center on 21-04-2005, 00:00

NLMSX was one of the first emulators to offer turboR and Moonsound emulation and its straight-forward GUI have made it the first choice in MSX emulation to many. Essentially, NLMSX offers all features a normal gamer needs, but little more. A simple menu allows the user to select ROM or DSK images to run.

NO$MSX 1.5

by MSX Resource Center on 21-04-2005, 00:00

The first version of NO$MSX was released in 1999. Right from the start it aimed at being a decent MSX emulator for developers, which shows as the first thing you see after starting the emulator is the built-in debugger. This debugger always runs in the background. With NO$MSX it's possible to watch and change the memory, registers, flags and I/O map of the emulated MSX computer. Real-time.

openMSX 0.5.1

by MSX Resource Center on 21-04-2005, 00:00

openMSX is an opensource MSX emulator that aims to emulate every aspect of the MSX computer to perfection. This means that not only the usual MSX computers and hardware are supported, but rare hardware like the Panasonic MSX-Audio, MegaRAM, RS232 and even Sunrise's IDE interface can be emulated. Furthermore, the emulator is capable of emulating a wide range of MSX machines specifically.

paraMSX 0.46b

by MSX Resource Center on 21-04-2005, 00:00

When looking at the paraMSX website you'd think version 0.42 was the latest version released. Regular visitors of the MRC already know the paraMSX website contains an open dir where more recent versions of this Korean MSX emulator can be found, the most recent of which is paraMSX 0.46b. This is the version we are putting to the test right here.

Audience Questions Q: In which way is MSX player different then existing emulators? A: We talked to many people, it is not really different.

Q: If you start putting it up, the MSX server, you need a massive website, how to do that? A: Don’t know. Q: Nobody is working on it? A: No. Q: But you need a rather complex site to enable all developers to be a seller A: We do not know yet, if it is going to be a server everywhere or a little site. But the server will be massive.

RedMSX 1.4

by MSX Resource Center on 21-04-2005, 00:00

RedMSX is a Brazilian MSX emulator based on blueMSX 1.0.5. The emulator comes with a simple, easy to use GUI that offers all the features a novice MSX gamer could wish for. One of the most interesting things we noticed while testing the emulator is that it uses a lot less CPU load than all the other emulators in this test.

RuMSX 0.30

by MSX Resource Center on 21-04-2005, 00:00

RuMSX was the first MSX emulator capable of emulating the Panasonic MSX turboR computer. For this, and its straightforward user interface, it gathered many fans around the world. RuMSX comes with a nice Installshield installer which makes it very easy to get the emulator up and running. Its GUI is, indeed, very intuitive.

Testing methods

by MSX Resource Center on 21-04-2005, 00:00

To see how good an MSX emulator actually is we calculate its MRC EmuRank, using various methods of testing. We don't only test the accuracy of the emulation, but we also have a look at features, usability and music quality. The testing methods used to calculate the MRC EmuRank are described below.
