Microsoft MSX - Black Screen

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Using RetroArch 17/3/16 build on Nvidia Shield TV to launch (i updated all cores) , settings ok, all goes ok until it tries to launch the game, then just a black screen !

Any ideas ?

 

Thanks in advance

or perhaps you are trying to run an msx2 or + game in a msx1 vm. go into the core settings and change your machine type to an MSX turbo R then restart.

Which core are you using? MSX on MAME needs software lists for many games.

Hi,

Downloaded msx emulator as mentioned by Reznnate and all works fine and plays games perfectly  in that emulator itself, but when i try to play game in Hyperspin it just boot to the main menu setup of MSX Emulator.

im using these settings:

 

MSX.emu - Colecovision, MSX, etc.
 exe=com.explusalpha.MsxEmu/com.imagine.BaseActivity
 parameters=

 

Any thoughts ?

 

Thanks

There were issues with Retroarch when it was released with the default white screen, and some emulator's didn't work with it, so I changed mine and kept it like that just to be on the safe side :)

I don't have a fmsx wheel though, it's not a system I'm familiar with, so don't know of any other issues sorry :/

I've got a nice setup using MAME with the software lists. MSX was my first computer, and I still love many of the games.

phulshof - What are MAME software lists ? do you have an example ?

Also are you talking about MAME RetroArch CORE for MAME ?

 

Thanks

MAME uses software lists for removable media in consoles, home computers, etc. PD has full romsets for these that you can download.

If your rompath is set correctly, you can then play these games using e.g.

mame.exe snes smkart

mame.exe nes smb3

I don't use RetroArch; I simply use MAME for most emulation.
