yes, .rom, .cas, .dsk files can be run on a real machine, some with extra hardware, some without. Just search in this forum for how.

If you have access to an android phone it's easy. Use either Tapdancer or MSX2CAS. You could also try building the Arduitape for CAS files for a cheap option or buy a SDCard cartridge which should allow you to load DSK files.

Hello Buleste. Thanks for prividing such a detailed answer. I am an Android user so will check out those apps.

Games like Sir Fred and Livingstone seem so expensive to purchase.

I would suggest a nowind interface cartridge so you load your dsk files from laptop in your msx.

So, it basically depends which files you want to run. Tell us!
