I also have a 9300 so that's not a problem -- time is my only enemy Wink I'll try to get the version for S60 3rd edition done quickly, no fancy menus just something that works, everything but the menus is already done and working ok.

I've released the first version of fMSX/S60 for S60 3rd edition devices. The menu isn't as nice as it perhaps was but it should get the job done. I actually uploaded the stuff already last week but my computer broke and I couldn't log in to MRC to let you know about the new release. Now it's fixed though so I can continue working againWink

I'll try to attack the S80 next and see if I could make a version of the emulator for Nokia 9300(i) and 9500 phones. I'll keep you posted on that.

WOW, I'm speechless!!

I tried the new fMSX for S60 3rd edition on my new Nokia N73 and I have simply no words to describe it! Full speed with frameskip 0 and sound enabled on all the games I tried, sound is simply perfect, everything runs so smooth, fast and awesome! Is this an emulator or a real MSX?! Smile Best emulator porting ever, amazing job and kudos to the programmer.

P.S. Just a little, minor problem: the emulator seems to crash when I choose "create new file" in the menu (when i try to save the options or when I click on it in the load disk menu).

Humm... well I need to check with a N73 what's going on. On my E70 it is working. The thing is that for the new file input dialog I'm using a S60 system dialog because it was a lot easier that way, my app does not have to talk with front end processors and such shit to translate numbers to characters etc. It might be that it's the dialog that refuses to open and crashes the app along with it. Perhaps I have to think of a custom dialog for that as well -- you should never try to do things the easy way I guess Wink

BTW, an update on the S80 project: I already got the emulator somewhat running on my 9300, I just need to get the remaining things fixed like sound emulation which is currently not working yet...

Good work jr! Your new 1.11d works almost as good on my N73 as the previous version did on my 6600.
But I found some (small) problems:
the scrolling is more choppy than before. You can see the difference with Space Manbow, or Aleste for example. Space Manbow scrolls like Gradius, with 4 or 8 pixels at a time. It doesn't mather if you use the MSX 2 or MSX 2+ setting.
And if you use disk images (maybe it has something to do with single or double sided) the emulator crashes sometimes with this error code: Toep.afgesl (Dutch for: application closed) Z80 USER-EXEC 3.
Do you know what it wrong?
For the rest: Super emulator!

Well I guess I would have to compare the current version to the latest "b" release on my 6630 to see if there is a difference in the scrolling. I'll check if there's something broken in the VDP emulation in the "d" release. Other than that, N73 like other new phones have higher resolution displays than older phone models which means more data for the emulator to process which in turn makes things slower Sad For example on E70 the emulator has to deal with 8 times the display data compared to 6630 (double the resolution and double color depth).

The error code you mentioned basically means a page fault caused by the emulator's main thread so unfortunately it doesn't help much in tracing the source of the problem. If you could isolate the exact sequence of operations that you do that always or frequently cause the emulator to crash it would be helpful. I can try to test more with disk images as well to see what could be the problem, perhaps I catch it.

On a side note, I just uploaded a patched version "1.12d" to my webpage. It hopefully addresses the problem DDJ reported. I simply replaced the OS text input dialogs with custom code. Again, this seems to work on my E70 (as it did previously too, but...). The downside of this is that I did not (at least yet) implement any fancy input mechanisms so my text input dialog only supports basic multitap, no predictive text input or symbol popups. This shouldn't be too big of an issue with the filenames because it is probably enough to be able to enter numbers and letters for the filenames but for keyboard macros it's not so great because you cannot enter any symbols like colon, quote etc. I'll see if I can add a symbol submenu in the future but for now at least the filename input should be usable.

Hey Hydrant... we're sorry, but for that you should really have a look somewhere else. This website is about the MSX computer system, and this thread solely and only about emulating the MSX computer system on a Symbian phone.
