fMSX is a famous emulator of the MSX, MSX2, and MSX2+ 8bit home computers.
It runs MSX/MSX2/MSX2+ software on many different platforms including Windows and Unix.
See http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/ for further informations.
It has been first written by Marat Fayzullin, and later Vincent van Dam ported it on SDL.
Here is a port on GP2X-Wiz of the version i've previously ported to PSP.
Many new features have been added compared to GP2X-F100 version.
Here is a copy of the changelog :
- Cheat support !
- New background images
- Text editor to write your own comments on games
- Text editor to modify the global cheat.txt file
- Display first comment line while browsing game files
- Memory monitoring engine to find your own cheat code !
- Zip rom files are now decompressed in memory (much faster !)
- Improve file requester with virtual keyboard to choose
sequentially rom files beginning with a given letter
- Add documentation for settings in help menu
- Add gzipped disk file support, reduce disk file size from 700k to 50k !
(you may gzip original dsk file using www.7-zip.org)
How to use it ? Everything is in the README.txt file.

zx81 nice release. Please check the url in the homepage. I can make a special .txt version for your emu if you want. Let me know.
ZX mail me on my e-mail address in the post, I got a few question on the format and multiple game support.
Thanx for this release, zx81. I was waiting for this emulator. Brings back so many good memories. Excellent work!
However sound is not working for me. I tried different volume and sound settings but to no avail. I have a gp2xwiz with firmware 1.1.0. Any ideas about what is wrong?
it doesn't work on all games ? for me it works fine, but sometimes i have to increase sound level in settings menu (not sound volume in the main menu, but sound level/boost in settings)
I find the games run too fast even in PAL 50 Hz mode.
This happens also in the PSP port.
