MSX on the mobile ?!


Yes!

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:

  • version 1.07a, intended for Nokia 3600/3620/3650/3660/7650/N-Gage™/N-Gage™ QD, Sendo X and Siemens SX-1, or
  • version 1.07b, intended for Nokia 3230/6260/6600/6620/6630/6670/7610 and Panasonic X700.
    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.

    Cya 😉
