openMSX 0.11.0 released

openMSX 0.11.0—NotOneButDoubleOne—brings you the following important new features: VDP access timing now also for MSX1 modes (corruption with too fast VRAM access will be visible now), implementation of most defailed differences between all used VDP chips and emulation of MegaFlashROM SCC+ SD. On top of that, there are some important (long standing) bug fixes, like the proper implementation of envelopes for MSX-AUDIO, fixing for example "Copy is Crime" by Impact. And last but not least, a lot of work was done under the bonnet, giving you even better performance and preparations for the future. Together with openMSX an updated version of Catapult, our user-friendly GUI, was released. We only made some minor improvements to it this time. Please read the release notes for details.

openMSX 0.10.1 released

openMSX 0.10.1—StillNotOneToo—mostly fixes mostly bugs we introduced with 0.10.0 or were already present for a bit longer... sorry for those, but most should be fixed now :) There are also some small but nice additions, like much extended MIDI support on Mac (thanks Grauw!), support for harddisk images in the OSD menu and more fine grained control in which slots carts and extensions will end up. Together with openMSX an updated version of Catapult, our user-friendly GUI, was released. Again, we actually made some improvements to it this time, mostly more code cleanups to enable quite some bug fixes (mainly in the settings tab), but also some features, like ability to change cartridges at run time and support for hard disks.

openMSX Catapult 0.6.0-R2 released

Today we released an update of openMSX Catapult 0.6.0. It is a bug-fix release for Windows users.

Shortly after release, we found out that a small number of users had problems with some registry keys. This is due to the wxWidgets library we use. Although we don't fully understand what went wrong, we recompiled the library without the components that caused the misbehaviour. We also removed unicode support from it, which limited Catapult to work only on Windows NT, 2000 and XP.... read more

openMSX Catapult 0.5.2-R2 released

This second release of openMSX Catapult 0.5.2 is only a bug fix
release. We found that on platforms that use wxGTK, the extensions
didn't work anymore. This is due to some bug in wxGTK, but we
implemented a work around for it in this release, which should make
Catapult usable again. Also, we made some errors in the new CPU build
files, which are corrected in this release.
Note: none of these changes affect Win32 users, so we will not release
a new Win32 binary. An updated Debian package will be available
shortly.... read more
