jsMSX 0.9.2 on [canvas]:
Just wait, it may be slow in your browser...
Actual speed should be around 60 interrupts/sec.
If you think you'd like to participate, are just curious or want to say hello, please have a look at the project.
If the methods getImageData() and putImageData() are available, for instance in Firefox 2.0, an automatic mode for displaying graphics faster is used. Therefore, currently FF 2.0 is the recommended platform to run jsMSX on.
This online demo is only fully supported on FF 1.5 (unaccelerated gfx fallback mode) and FF 2.0 (accelerated gfx mode), even though the core jsMSX files should work on any browser with the tag [canvas] (see Express Demo below). This support limitation of the online demo is due to differences in I/O mechanisms between web browsers for fetching ROM files only, and it is not intrinsic to jsMSX browser support itself, which is only dependent on the availability of the [canvas] tag. In a future version of this demo, I/O support for Opera and Safari will be added. It currently supports fetching ROM files on FF using the prefixes 'http://' and 'file://'. If you know of any other web browsers on which the jsMSX demo works, or you would like to add I/O support for your favorite web browser, please drop a line to the project forum.
The Online Demo:
Just press [start] in the demo above and the default demo bios and cartridge roms will be already loaded in the correct MSX virtual slots. The express demo should work on any web browser with [canvas] tag (such as Firefox 1.5/2.0+, Opera 9.0, Safari and IE 6.0/7.0+excanvas).
or, to load arbitrary roms:
Please load the ROM images before starting the emulator: (To load the BASIC, load only the BIOS ROM before hitting [start])
