blueMSX provides a powerful machine editor that
allows to edit the memory layout and configure I/O
to create configurations that matches existing or
custom made machines.
The machine editor requires some knowledge about
the hardware but the interface is made as simple
as possible to make it easier to understand the
inner part of the emulated machine.
Minimal version and full version of the emulator
come with several default machine configurations
that probably are sufficient for most emulator
users, but for the more technical users this tool
allows for a detailed specification of the
emulation. The default machines may then serve as
a start when designing custom machines.
If you have installed the minimal version of the
emulator, only the C-BIOS
machines are fully working.
The full version of the emulator includes the
system roms for the generic machines,
in the subdirectory Machines / Shared Roms.
Both versions of the emulator come also with specific machines
configurations (Panasonic, National, Sanyo, ...).
