fMSX for PlayStation 4

What does this do?

fMSX is an emulator made by Marat Fayzullin. It is not open source and don't let commercial use of it but it is easy to port to many devices. So respect his license condition.

You can get all information about it at:

https://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/

What do you need to compile it?

  1. You will need ps4sdk fork branch firmware505 and liborbis from my own repository

Follow steps in readme

git clone https://github.com/orbisdev/liborbis

  1. Compile fmsx
git clone https://github.com/psxdev/fmsx
cd fmsx
make

copy bin/fmsx to use it like homebrew.elf in ps4sh

  1. You will need ps4sh because all is loaded from host

If you have a directory where ps4sh binary is create

mkdir system
mkdir GAMES

Put your msx system rom and CARTS.SHA and fmsxtexture.png on system

-rw-r--r--@ 1 bigboss  staff   33152 21 oct 20:17 CARTS.SHA
-rw-r--r--@ 1 bigboss  staff   16384 24 oct 23:16 DISK.ROM

-rw-r--r--@ 1 bigboss  staff  218746 23 dic 20:08 fmsxtexture.png

Put your .ROM .DSK .CAS games on GAMES

  1. Before execute homebrew.elf you need ps4sh running on directory where system and GAMES folders are created. Load orbislink pkg and you will see logs in your ps4sh tool

After you see orbislink splash screen execute connect command on ps4sh

bigmini:bin bigboss$ ./ps4sh
ps4sh version 1.0

  1. ready to have a lot of fun :P

You can choose MSX MSX2 and MSX2+ and PAL or NTSC.

Red power button let you reset the system and go to basic prompt. You can choose 2 cart slot, 2 floppy and 1 cassete files. When you are in ugly browser after press x in the file who has the * it will load the file, later you will see reset the system and load is done

  1. I wait that this can help to developers really interested in homebrew if you want piracy this is not for you. Respect the licenses from fMSX part please.
