Topic: Emulation

JR has just released a new version of the fMSX emulator for Series 60 mobile phones, running Symbian OS. New in this version of fMSX/S60:

  • C-variant introduced, support for a-variant dropped
  • Z80 emulation improvements
  • HBI-V1 emulation improvements (image size and location parameters are now supported)

The new c-variant works on Series 60 2nd edition, feature pack 3, based devices with a 352x416 resolution display. JR warns us though, this new version hasn't been tested that well, he says we should keep eye on a quick v1.09 release.

If you have any suggestions or comments on fMSX/S60, feel free to post them in this forum topic. To ease up the installation of this emulator on your mobile phone we recommend you to use Sousuke's ROMpackager.

mmmh, not sure I understand how HBI-V1 emulation works on a mobile phone... Do you use the phone camera as video input ? Tongue

RuMSX has some kind of video grabber support. Anyone tried it?

on a mobile phone, the only video input available is the camera... in a PC the digitizer should simply be connected to any available video input source, which can be a webcam/camera, but also a tv-signal pulled through the video grabber hardware.

I never tried to use the RuMSX digitizer option... yet.

how about using a video file on PC as input instead of "real" live video feed?

hi people!
i wanna ask u guys .. does the fmsx\s60 have any sound problems?? (using 1.08b)
i tried it on my 6680 and it works fine until you do something in the game that causes a high pitched noise...... then it just keeps going SSSSSHHHHH !
it seems to go away when you do something in the game..
is it just me???
(btw i tried it on a 3230 too .. same thing) (i'm gonna try it on an N70 soon)
(and i tried to make the frames less ... and i tried raw unzoomed rendering )
the phone is not slow ... and the game works fine... the only problem is SHHHHHHHHHHSSHHH !!!
BTW Thanks ALOT JR you rule Smile
