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.
GP2X-MSX is a port on GP2X of the version 220.127.116.11 of fMSX-SDL from Vincent van Dam that i had previously ported to PSP.
What's new in this version ?
- Speed improvements
- Add gzipped disk file support, reduce disk file size from 700k to 50k !
(you may gzip original dsk file using www.7-zip.org)
- A thumbnail image is now displayed in the file requester
while selecting any file with the same name of a previously
saved game (rom, disk, keyboard, settings).
It might be very helpful to recognize that game later if you
have thousand different games on your disk and rom folders !
- In the emulator menu you can go directly to keyboard and settings
menu using the L-Trigger key.
- The virtual keyboard is now usable in the file requester menu to
choose the first letter of the game you search !
How to use it ? Everything is in the README.txt file.
Here is a full working binary version :

I love your PSP and GP2X MSX emulators.. Have you considered porting one to the Wii?!!!!
Hi Zx-81. Great emu's for GP2X, but it's been a long time since your last updates, will you be doing any more updates to your GP2X emu's for speed increases up to 60fps?
i plan to release a new version soon (when i will have finished the psp version)
