 Varios
Los MSX 2 son la nueva generación del MSX, con prestaciones mas avanzadas. Los modelos de gama alta incorporan digitalizadores de vídeo o equipos MIDI. Sus prestaciones gráficas superan al Atari ST y rivalizan con el Amiga desde un simple Z80 (son los únicos equipos con videotizers disponibles del momento, siendo frecuente ver a ambos equipos en estudios de vídeo). Nacen numerosas aplicaciones que sacan partido de estos temas: desde los típicos paquetes de oficina a aplicaciones para dentistas e incluso un curso de Aerobic. En otro sentido plantan cara a la nueva generación de consolas (un distribuidor francés llegó a vender una consola que era un MSX2 sin teclado).

El tema de compatibilidad de los juegos fue uno de los polémicos. Pudiendo cada equipo presentar su memoria mapeada como desee, los programas que respetan las normas de desarrollo funcionan sin problemas; en cambio los que hacen llamadas directas al hard tienen muchas posibilidades de llamar a un componente que no está Es muy usual el uso de "POKEs magicos", que en realidad lo que hacen es reconfigurar los slots de memoria. El control de sprites es muy avanzado.

 Emuladores
  • fMSX (Unix, Mac, MS-DOS, Windows, PC9800, etc.)
    fMSX is a portable MSX/MSX2/MSX2+ emulator written in C language by Marat Fayzullin. It is written in C, and its source code is freely distributable for non-commercial purposes. Numerous ports and extensions exist for different platforms, such as the MS DOS version by Marcel de Kogel and Macintosh version by John Stiles. Further development is greatly encouraged. The Windows95/WinG version is available from the author for $35US (with a free demo). fMSX can be obtained from http://www.komkon.org/fms/fMSX/" fMSX-DOS has a special distribution site: fMSX-DOS Distribution Site. Personally, I really like this emulator (as far as I use emulators!). It's optimized to deliver maximal performance on the MS-DOS platform. For this emulator, various 'Launchers' for Windows can be downloaded. For URL's see the links database of The MSX Resource Center (and my bookmarks, emulator section), but a very nice one is fMSX QuickStart, by Arjan Steenbergen. It can be downloaded here.
  • fMSX-Amiga (Amiga)
    This is an Amiga version of fMSX branched from the portable version by Hans Guijt a long time ago. It is quite different from the mainstream version and optimized to deliver maximal perfomance on Amiga platform.
  • CJS MSX2 (MSDOS)
    MSX2 emulator by CJS is able to access files in the MSDOS partitions, emulates both MSX and MSX2, supports mouse, it is fast, and has very extensive documentation. You may have known its previous versions under names "PC MSX1 emulator" and "MSX099". A real disadvantage is that the author seem to have given it up. There have been no updates since 1995 or so. CJS MSX2 can be obtained from http://ftp.castel.nl/msx/.
  • AmiMSX 2 (Amiga)
    AmiMSX is written by Juan Antonio Gomez Galvez. Its performance is quite impressive even on an A3000/25. It was crippleware, but now the keys are PD. It supports PSG or SCC and requires at least OS2.0 and 680X20. It can be obtained from: http://www.arrakis.es/~joanant/amsx.htm.
  • Virtual MSX (Windows)
    The development on this emulator has stopped; the author is developing the MSX emulator in MESS now. Virtual MSX is not really worthwhile, as current emulators are much better. For information on Virtual MSX (including uninstall, and converting Virtual MSX file formats .tap and gmaster2.ram) go to http://www.msxnet.org/vmsx/. Virtual MSX is a windows-only emulator by Sean Young and has an emulation core written in assembly language, and extensive GUI. Only MSX (not MSX2/MSX2+) is emulated though. Needs WinG.
  • MSX4PC (MS-DOS)
    This is a commercial MSX emulator produced in Netherlands. It is programmed by Adriaan van Doorn and published by MCCM. It can be obtained from http://www.mccm.aktu.nl/
  • BrMSX (MS-DOS)
    A MS-DOS MSX emulator made by Ricardo Bittencourt. It is said to be the most stable and complete emulator for MS-DOS. Especially MSX1 emulation is (almost) perfect. Is also quite fast on slower machines. Now also MSX2 emulation. More info can be found here: http://www.lsi.usp.br/~ricardo/brmsx.htm. The emulator can be obtained from that page too.
  • Java MSX Emulator
    In very early state of development. More info on: http://www.medicina.ufmg.br/~arnon/msxemu/.
  • MSKISS (MS-DOS)
    By ISS'98. Also in early state of development, but now also supports MSX2 and MSX2+. Can be obtained from: http://www.salleURL.edu/~is05562/msx_ing.html
  • RuMSX (MS-Windows)
    By Rudolf Lechleitner. The first MSX Emulator with full support for MSX2+ and MSX Turbo R, but still in development. Can be obtained from http://members.EUnet.at/lexlechz/msx.html or http://www.msxnet.org/gtinter/r-emuj.htm or http://members.eunet.at/lexlechz/.
  • PowerMSX (MS-DOS)
    PowerMSX is a MSX emulator for DOS. It emulates a MSX1 with 64Kb of RAM and emulates tapes as tape images and disk as disk images. Screen 3 is very slow and without sprites. The emulator currently is at a very early stage of development but already runs a lot of games. Even some Europian games that were not expected to work run, like Venom, Profanation, Army Moves, Hundra, etc... It features good emulated PSG sound also. Lacking noise channel. It seems development has stopped now. More info and download on: http://members.xoom.com/_XOOM/MSXe/
  • No$MSX (MS-DOS and Windows)
    This emulator has been solely programmed for the reason to play H.E.R.O. and Beamrider, please notice that No$msx can hardly compete with other emulators: not much work put into the project, and not much support planned in future. Slowly its capabilities are growing though, it now also includes MSX2 emulation. More info and download (including some nice tools!) on: http://www.work.de/nocash/msx.htm
  • NLMSX (MS-Windows)
    A new emulator developed by Frits Hilderink of the former MSX Computer Club Enschede, The Netherlands. It was originally based on fMSX, by Marat Fayzullin, but has now only its Z80 core; the rest is totally rewritten. It is one of the most complete and accurate MSX emulators for Windows. More info and download on: http://nlmsx.generation-msx.nl/.
  • MESS (Windows 9x/NT, Unix, Mac, Amiga)
    MESS emulates over a hunderd different machines, one of which is the MSX1. The MESS code is based on MAME. Currently, there is no disk emulation or MSX2 support; however it emulates many cartridge types. Also tape emulation is done through .wav files; authentic emulation (does not catch BIOS hooks). More info is on: MESS homepage and MESS MSX driver WIP.
  • openMSX (Linux and Windows)
    One of the newest MSX emulators. Development started in 2001. It is a totally new concept of emulating an MSX. The purpose is to emulate the MSX standard as accurately as possible. Therefore, it is object oriented: all devices are seperate objects that communicate with each other via the motherboard, like in a real MSX. Currently it is still in the alpha phase and only targeted for developers. It is usable though and currently already the most accurate MSX emulator available. Note that it is completely Open Source. More info is on http://openmsx.sf.net.
