Recommended Posts

Quick tutorial on setting MSX using Retroarch :)

 

Quick tutorial on getting Microsoft MSX to run through Retroarch and Hyperspin.
 
BIOS files needed:
(msx.rom, msx2.rom, msx2ext.rom, msx2p.rom, msx2pext.rom)
 
Hyperspin settings:
exe=com.retroarch/com.retroarch.browser.retroactivity.RetroActivityFuture
 parameters=cores/fmsx_libretro_android.so
romextension=rom,mx1,mx2

Hi,

Great video. I have done everything you have mentioned, everything showing as present on bios screen in retroarch, rom extension set to rom, settings/exe all correct.

It plays ok when i point it to a file in retroarch, but when i use hyperspin still has a black screen only.

Do the roms need to be on internal drive ? as I have mine on external drive. All other retroarch systems work fine with roms on it but this one is very odd.

All sorted now, retroarch didn't save the bios path but now all working perfectly. works for MSX and MSX2 systems

 

Thanks again

Why doesn't it work the normal way?

Shouldn't this be reported to the rocketlauncher guys instead?

I tried both fmsx and blue msx in retroarch directly now, both refuse to run any games. Weird. i have the bios files in place and both those needed directories from the blue msx install.

Has anyone got this working? Wanna tell us how you did?

Yes! I got blueMSX working!

How? I started retroarch from the command line like this:

retroarch --menu --verbose > log.txt 2>&1

and found the following lines in the log:

RetroArch [WARN] :: SYSTEM DIR is empty, assume CONTENT DIR D:\HyperSpin\Emulators\RetroArch\1942 (Japan).rom
RetroArch [iNFO] :: Environ SYSTEM_DIRECTORY: "D:\HyperSpin\Emulators\RetroArch\".
RetroArch [ERROR] :: Failed to load content.

Dooh, my system dir was not set. When i did set it BluMSX works. \o/

This is for Android mate, we don't use Rocket Launcher :)
