Topic: Emulation

WebMSX, or simply WMSX, is an MSX emulator created by Paulo Augusto Peccin (ppeccin here on MRC) that simply runs on the web. It is easy, it is quick and works like a charm. Run your fave MSX game anywhere without installing any piece of software. You can launch the emulator and load ROMs, DSK and CAS images with a single link. And with the new release there's even more to enjoy.

WebMSX 5.3 is live with a nice pack of new features:

  • Additional 5.37MHz (1.5x) CPU Turbo speed
  • Light version with C-BIOS Machines
  • CRT Scanlines simulation
  • MegaRAM Extension (256KB - 2MB)
  • Left-side Touch Control buttons
  • Full Windowed mode (Shift + Alt + Enter)
  • Screen Aspect (Pixel Aspect Ratio) changed to 1.14
  • Improved Settings with increase/decrease values
  • Hotkeys + Shift modifier: decrease values
  • New External Config File. Easier setup of custom Machines and Extensions
  • New Environment concept. Isolated savestates, configs, preferences
  • Mouse pointer auto-lock in Fullscreen modes
  • Bugfixes: SD Snatcher Melancholia and overscan games now work

If you want to see the thing in action, check out the File Hunter his page. It is stuffed with MSX goods, fully powered by WMSX!

I really like the new external config file option. With this, you can create specific machines (more or less. Not as exact as with OpenMSX).
In the Arabic MSX Section of my site, I've configure WebMSX to emulate a Sakhr AX-370. On that page you can now also select a Yamaha YIS-805/128R2 using the WebMSX "Select Machine" feature.
