The MSX 2 Roms (also known as the MSX2, MSXII or MSM5232) is a standardized home computer architecture.
MSX2 Roms was a widely used standard for the 'Osborne Effect' and one of the most popular 8-bit home computers in Europe and South America. The standard defines:
MSX Video game consoles were more popular than Nintendo and Sega in Japan during the 1980s. One reason was that computers like MSX (and SG-1000) were marketed as video game console primary target audiences instead of personal computers. Console games only became mainstream in Japan at late 1980's with Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)'s overwhelming success both commercially and critically. At that time PC market was much smaller than today and Japanese developers focused on arcade machines or video game consoles, not personal computers which have been long popular in USA & UK markets.
Here are a list of games that you must try if you have an MSX2 emulator or hardware:
Before you can play the rom game file on your emulator software or hardware, you need to convert/ compress it into an ZIP or CSO format. Or if you have extracted it already (WITHOUT converting it into a CSO or ZIP format) then the emulator should load the original rom game file without any problem.
Emulator software can behave differently when comes to compatibility with certain games. The more compatible ones include MagicEngine , BlueMSX , FCEUXD SP & XP, TAC-2 Multi Emu . Some other emulators may work well but not all of them are able to play every single MSX 2 Roms Game ever made! If you find which one works best for you please let us know so we update this article accordingly. There are only few emulators that can run 3D roms games, if your favourite emulator can't do that then why not try RIN ? It's a rom game file compression and decompression tool which is able to convert your MSX rom games into .CSO or .ZIP files.
