Topic: Emulation

The openMSX is an MSX home computer system emulator for modern computers. Its goal is to emulate all aspects of the MSX with 100% accuracy, or perfection in emulation. The openMSX team just announced their latest major release which gets openMSX to version 17.0. Catapult got updated as well.

openMSX 17.0, dubbed "Quibus Birthday Release", is a major release with mostly bug fixes and smaller improvements. Most notable may be the usability improvements of the OSD menu. The list of improvements is extensive. Together with openMSX an updated version of the openMSX user-friendly gui "Catapult" was released. Just a few bug fixes this time, no new features.

The openMSX web-site has been updated to reflect this new version. Lots of documentation is present there, make sure you read this if you haven't used openMSX before, but also to learn more about the new and changed features.

wohoo! Great stuff.

Looking forward to test this one:


- V99x8:
- fixed timing of VDP settings getting applied. This fixes the screensplit in
Psycho World, Hydefos, Space Manbow and the Woei demo, and probably more.
Many thanks to Grauw for figuring out the real problem.

as this is an area that has proven to be difficult to program "correctly" for Smile

Espero que se haya corregido el bugque ocurre tantas veces pero no sé localizarlo cuando en el debuguer quieres abrir:
"Add Debugable viewer"...y el debugger se cierra!!
