Today a new version of fMSX emulator, the mother of all MSX emulators, has been released. Changes in this version:

  • Switched to the latest version of the OpenWatcom C/C++ compiler.
  • The infamous Windows problem with spaces in directory names seems to be fixed by using a newer compiler.
  • Made some arrays "const" to facilitate porting to run-from-ROM platforms (cellphones, PDAs, etc.).
  • Joystick problems in fMSX-Windows are fixed.
  • Descreased the default sound volume in fMSX-Unix.
  • Increased the default wave synthesis frequency to 44.1kHz.
  • Minor fixes to the Unix sound drivers.
  • Removed MIDI volume control from Windows sound drivers
  • Added TV raster effect to fMSX-Windows.

The Windows version of fMSX costs $35,-. People who registered earlier versions of fMSX will receive the new version for free. The fMSX/Unix version comes for free.

The Mac version has been synchronised to v.2.7 also...
'In sync with the latest Unix release.
Massively reduced CPU usage; fMSX now averages 5% CPU usage on my Dual 1.42GHz G4.
Turning sound emulation off now works correctly. '
