blueMSX 2.5


New member
Version 2.5 of blueMSX will be released globally 8.7 at 14:00 GMT ! The big launch event has been arranged today at the MSX Info Update 2006 party in Helsinki. Daniel Vik presents new features to all party visitors on video.

After almost 10 months since the previous release, the new version of blueMSX is a big update, full of very advanced features :

- The implementation of a new controllers and keyboard editor gives still more comfort to the gamers and will allow to support easily other computers or consoles in future versions.

- Requested since a long time by the MSX developers, the hard disk emulation is now a reality and besides the well-known Sunrise IDE hard disk controllers, blueMSX has also implemented the Beer IDE and GIDE supports.

- In the musical domain, blueMSX is the first emulator that is capable to support the Yamaha CX5M, CX5M-128 and CX7M-128 computers by emulation of the YM2151 sound chip and the YK-01, YK-10 and YK-20 music keyboards. The MIDI part of the Yamaha SFG cartridges is not yet available.
