Ofcourse it's emulation! The rom images are even on the CD!

PSX has a 33MHz R3000 CPU, that's more than enough to emulate an MSX1.

Indeed.. The ROM images can be found on the CD. Just put the disc into your PC and search for a bit. They are changed a bit though, probably so they don't need any BIOS stuff anymore...

You guys don't know enough about static recompilation, but do like to pretend all-knowing semi-deities. How pathetic...

pfff, PSX is fast enough to emulate MSX1, plus Konami could speed up the emulator by removing parts that aren't used by the games on the CD.

And I think Guyver800 has proven to know enough about emulation on msx, even using dynamic recompilation!

dhau: GEM the Gameboy Emulator for MSX (by Guyver) does nothing else than dynamically recompile the 'GB80' code to Z80 code. So I'd say Guyver knows a hundred times more about dynamic recompilation than you do.

Static recompilation is a nice term to throw around with, but for several reasons is very hard to achieve, if not impossible. Imagine for example a jump table which you jump into with an index. On MSX, that index is multiplied by 3 and added to the base address to calculate the start address. On a 32-bit system this would be different. How can the recompiler possible know that it has to take a different value there? Right, it is impossible.

Or, how does it know which bytes are code and what is data? And what about self-modifying code (though I doubt Konami used that)?

The fact that there are roms in the game CD doesn't means that they are emulated. Take the example of Chrono Trigger for PSX: the CD has the rom from the SNES version, althought it's only used for taking the graphics and data from it. It's possible that the same occurs in the Konami Antiques Collection.
