btw, just if anyone is interested. I just tried and it compiles and works in Mac out of the box as well. Just install the "impulseaudio" package using macports, add the include and library folders of impulseaudio and of X11 (opt/local/include and opt/X11 in my case) to the makefile, type "make", and there you go!

Great to see a new version of fMSX available. Smile

I was wondering, how Netplay is supposed to work with fMSX? I went to the fmsx page, but I saw no documentation about it. Anyone knows how it works?

It seems that fms (or anyone that cares) doesn't read this thread. That's too bad, I really enjoyed fMSX in the past, it brings so many good memories.
