OpenMSX 0.10.1 for Raspberry Pi!
Updated 27/Sep/14: New 10.0.1 binary!!
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
Now you have a PiKISS script to do it automatically: Check here
First download the source code. It can be obtained from Sourceforge website here. The date of this version is May 1, 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:
./configure make sudo make install
[ Binaries ]
I created a .deb package that you can install and download from the next url:
dpkg -i openmsx_0.10-1_armhf.deb
Remember you have to install dependencies: sudo apt-get install libglew1.7 libtheora0 libao4
Run a rom file with: openmsx file.rom
To uninstall: sudo dpkg -r openmsx
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.
Notice: if you want to emulate real MSX systems and not only the free C-BIOS machines, put the system ROMs in one of the following directories: /opt/openMSX/share/systemroms or ~/.openMSX/share/systemroms
If you want openMSX to find MSX software referred to from replays or savestates you get from your friends, copy that MSX software to /opt/openMSX/share/software or ~/.openMSX/share/software
[ 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
