blueMSX 2.6


New member
Version 2.6 of blueMSX has been released !

blueMSX is the first freeware emulator to support the Game Reader, a device that allows an user to play real MSX cartridges on a PC. blueMSX is using Vincent van Dam's API to access the Game Reader device. The support requires the Game Reader hardware and official drivers that can be purchased from Sunrise or MSX-ASSOCIATION.

Note that the support is very different from MSXPLAYer and some cartridges will not run as well as with the MSXPLAYer.

Another surprising new feature is support for ObsoNET, the only Ethernet solution for MSX, developed by Daniel Berdugo. Read carefully the manual as this support requires to install first WinPCap, the Windows Packet Capture Library.

After many requests from gamers, the emulator comes finally with input event logging, replay and AVI rendering. Conceived as enhanced save states, this great feature gives to the user a more complete MSX experience ! :)

blueMSX 2.6 has also support for the Sega SC-3000 and SF-7000 computers, that were very close to the MSX1 system without being compatible.
