Last week, a new version of JEmu2/MSX was released. Changes in this version:

  • Added preliminary MSX-2 support. (sprite colours not correct yet, some missing VDP opcodes)
  • Added enhanced drivers for Knightmare and Nemesis 2, which make background scrolling smoother
  • Released the source code (see the 'about' page)

We just added a link to the MSX.bas website to our links section. MSX.bas is a Portuguese website which focusses on the development of programs in MSX-BASIC. So, if you're a BASIC developer who can read a little Portuguese, be sure to check this site out.

Do you have (or know of) an MSX website not yet listed in our links section?
