Web MSX

New in Version 4.0:

  • Support for mobile iOS and Android devices.
  • Finally enjoy MSX games on your iPhone/iPad!
  • Customizable Touch Controls, Virtual Keyboard, with Haptic feedback.
  • Install as a WebApp on iOS/Android/Desktop, then run offline!

  • Higher resolution GUI for high-density displays, Retina displays.
  • Menu navigation by keys. Easy GUI switches for most used options.

It requires a modern device to run smoothly. Android itself and Chrome on Android still have some audio issues. So for now, depending on the device, audio may have a noticeable delay. The Audio Buffer can be adjusted on the Quick Options dialog. On other platforms, there are no known issues.
