Topic: Emulation

Daniel Vik really is on a roll, at the moment. Not long after blueMSXX 1.4.0 was released, he and his team enjoy us with a new 1.4.1 version. As you can see, this is not just a minor bugfix. A lot of things have been improved. Here's a list:

  • Addition of horizontal and vertical stretch on all monitor modes
  • Implementation of a DirectDraw Hardware acceleration driver
  • Better sound mixer
  • Improved Moonsound emulation
  • Support of the MSX-AUDIO cartridges (including the switch of the Panasonic cartridge)
  • Improved SCC support
  • New default machine configs: MSX2 French and German
  • Support for smaller sound buffer sizes in performance
  • Support for di1, di2, mx1 and mx2 file types
  • Registration of file types in settings
  • Romdb.dat database added
  • Support for Kanji roms in cartridge slots
  • Support for Korean 90-in-1 rom
  • Support for PAC and Megaram in special submenu
  • Drag and drop of .sta files
  • Mouse and Joystick config saved in save state
  • Fixed mouse issues
  • Mouse as joystick when left button pressed at start
  • Changed "Joystick in Port 1" to "Port 1"
  • Possibility to disable Windows menu keys
  • Screensplit to screen 0 corrected
  • Updated Disk Patch to synchronize pending VDP commands
  • Updated sprite addressing
  • Fixed bug in set position for zipped cas files
  • Support for NT4 and Win95 added

Last but not least, the official blueMSX website has moved and now has its own dedicated URL.

Since the release of blueMSX 1.4.1, the team has discovered a very minor bug and decided to release a new build 6322. If you were fast with downloading blueMSX 1.4.1, you might have an old build. We suggest to download the emulator once again.

Great progress once again. A lot has happened since the very first release, which was only released a short while ago... keep up the good job!
