Hello,

I was wondering if anyone knows of a working MSX emulator for AmigaOS 4? There are a few old gems I'd really love to play like Salamander, Knightmare and Blow-Up. Thanks in advance.

fMSX did unfortunately not work. Crashed during startup (system freeze). Tried several times.

FinalBurn worked, but need to spend some time learning how to set it up. Hopefully I can manage to get one of the old games to run.

@AmigaOldskooler

I notice the fMSX author offers the source code. If they are contactable it may be worth (somebody who is interested and able) getting hold of that and building it for OS4.

Also, as an aside, you could try disabling JIT.

OK, so it's not entirely written in C. It might be "easily" possible to fix the bug which stops it running on OS4 though.

(I am not volunteering)
