GUI4MSX-Mboxroms&openMSX is a program written in RealBasic to use the game-roms from MSX-Mbox. Below you will find install instructions.

You can find GUI4MSX-Mboxroms&openMSX at:
The zip file contains no romfiles.

What a MSX user would have to do is:
1. Download and extract the MSX-MBox torrent.
2. Rename all romfilenames to lowercase. You can use krename for that or the following shell script provided by joyrex (didn’t test it to be honest).


for i in $*
j=`echo $i|tr A-Z a-z`

if [ $i != $j ]
mv $i $j


2. Install the openmsx emulator for his or her distribution
3. Download and extract my programm in the MSX-Mbox-4.5/games directorie.
4. Make an icon on his of her desktop pointing to GUI4MSX-Mboxroms_openMSX and maybe make GUI4MSX-Mboxroms_openMSX executable.
5. Start GUI4MSX-Mboxroms_openMSX

Didn’t test all the games yet. So some will not work properly because i have put the wrong MSX version in the roms.lst file.

If you find any errors i would like to hear it.

Realbasic needs the following:
x86-based Linux distributions with GTK+ 2.8 (or higher)
glibc-2.3 (or higher)
CUPS (Common UNIX Printing System) (Not for my programm)
