Topic: Emulation

Today, we celebrate the first 1.xx-version of the MSX emulator for Nokia Series 60 phones! This emulator makes it possible to run MSX software on Nokia 3650, Nokia 7650, Nokia N-Gage and Nokia 6600 phones. The emulator might also run on other mobile phones that run on Symbian OS, but this has not been verified as of yet. Changes in the new release:

  • Support for automatically rotating joystick and cursor key mappings with display rotation
  • Adjustable viewport position for raw rendering mode
  • Fully RAM based disk emulation support
  • YM2413 sound support (still has performance problems)
  • Support for system silent mode obeying sound volume (1.00b version only)
  • Bug fixes and optimizations

Most of these changes were suggested and discussed in this forum thread. We recommend using Sousuke's ROMPackager for installing the System ROMs and software you want to use with this emulator.
