OpenMSX 0.10 for Raspberry Pi!


In this post you can get the latest version of the OpenMSX emulator I've compiled for you and if you are a PRO, how to compile it by yourself...

This post is dedicated to Eduardo, a user who contacted with me by email to ask how to emulate a MSX with the Raspberry Pi.

[ Compiling... ]


In four hours and solving a few dependences, you will get the compiled binaries of this great emulator

First download the source code. It can be obtained from the author's website here. The date of this version is January 5, 2014.

Once uncompressed in a directory, you must resolve dependences. With Raspbian for example use the next command:

sudo apt-get install libsdl1.2-dev libsdl-ttf2.0-dev libglew-dev libao-dev libogg-dev libtheora-dev libxml2-dev libvorbis-dev tcl-dev

Then you only need to run the following to compile and install:

sudo make install

[ Binaries ]

I created a .deb package that you can install and download from the next url:

Download: > openmsx0.10.0-1armhf.deb

dpkg -i openmsx_0.10.0-1_armhf.deb

Remember you have to install dependencies: sudo apt-get install libglew1.7 libtheora0 libao4

Run a rom file with: openmsx file.rom

It use as bios the C-Bios which is royalty-free, but you can use a bios dumped from an original MSX as I teach you in this post.

[ Optimize ]

The emulator is not scaled, so If you want play with full screen, change the next lines on the /boot/config.txt file:

framebuffer_width = 800
framebuffer_height = 600

To speed up a little, edit the next file: sudo nano /opt/openMSX/share/settings.xml. Add to section the next lines hosted on
