I’ve been running MSX on my Nokia 6600 ( It works on other mobiles ) for a few months now, and a lot of people asked me how I did it, so I’m writing it here just in case you don’t how. Trust me you will enjoy it 🙂 it is so much more fun than new mobile games.
If you don’t know what is MSX let me try to remind you 🙂 Don’t you remember that old Keyboard where you connect a recorder to it and inserts Tapes to play games, and some times Catridges. In the Arab world there is a company called Sakhr which made an Arabic version of it, so we used to call it Sakhr. I think now you remember it 🙂
The way it works is by installing an emulator designed by Juha Riihimäki.
You just need a couple of softwares to be ready.
These are the packages:
Download PC tool set for creating install packages from system ROM and cartridge ROM images.
The next thing you need to do is to find the ROM files throgh the Internet (Hint: Google 🙂 ) and use the PC Tool to creat the install package that you will send it to your mobile, and you’re ready to enjoy the old games 🙂
That’s not all, you can also run MSX on all Operating Systems such as MAC, Windows, etc ….
Look at this page for all the MSX emulators: http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/
And on top of all, it is Open Source 🙂
Hope you liked it.
And if you have any questions I’m ready help.
