The latest and greatest version of fMSX is here. This release improves sound rendering precision, updating sound every 8 scanlines, rather than every frame. The Windows version adds support for DirectInput joysticks and fixes a crash when changing the audio rate. We're on version 5.0 now.

fMSX is a program that emulates MSX, MSX2, and MSX2+ computers. It runs on many different platforms including Windows, Android, Symbian, MacOS, Unix, MSDOS, AmigaOS, and more. The creator, Marat Fayzullin, known on MRC as user fms, started coding this emulator back in 1993, which makes it one of the oldest MSX emulators we know of. fMSX has seen quite a lot of updates since then and has been ported to many systems.

Marat has just published fMSX 5.0 binaries for both Windows and Linux. Also the source code has been published.

ALL CHANGES:
* Switched to microseconds in the AY8910 PSG emulation.
* Now updating, rendering, and playing sound every 8 scanlines.
* The PLAY "S8M90O6G" MML test works now.
* Added support for DirectInput joysticks to fMSX-Windows.
* Fixed crash when changing audio sampling rate in fMSX-Windows.
