Configuring BlueMSX Launcher with MSX M-Box Screenshots and Games

Image
Hi ..

As you may know, there was an MSX games launcher called MSX M-Box that contained 1300+ games along with their screenshots so that you can see the game before running it. Sadly, this launcher works only on WinXP and below, it won't launch games on Win7, Win8 or Win10.
To solve this issue, I found BlueMSX Launcher on the web which is an excellent launcher, but didn't found a full collection like the MSX M-Box one, so I extracted the games and their screenshots from MSX M-Box, and in the video below I explain how I did this, and the other parts of the video explains how to configure BlueMSX Launcher for your use.
Download links:

BlueMSX Launcher with MSX M-BOX 4.5 Screenshots and Extras : To install it by yourself (steps explained in IMPORTANT.TXT and in the video).


MSX Launcher Portable : ready to play version, you must put it in C:, so that the home folder will be C:\MSX Launcher (explained in IMPORTANT.TXT and in the video).

Thank you and God Bless ...

Convert Raspberry Pi into MSX Computer (Minibian + OpenMSX)

Image
Greetings,

I downloaded the Linux Minibian image for the RPi, downloaded the correct packages and OpenMSX emulator with ALL MSX1 games and ALL Arabic educational software and then converted all this into an Image for 1GB SD-Card or more. 

Download the image file from the link below then burn it into an SD Card using Win32Disk Imager or Etcher or any similar software.

Click to Download Minibian + OpenMSX Image

When Minibian asks for login, you use:

User: root
Password: raspberry

Then, when the prompt line appears, write (openmsx), the OpenMSX emulator will run.

This and more info is shown in this video:
