BlueMSXBox BlueMSX Emulator port for XBox 

User Guide:

Features :

 - Emulates MSX/MSX2/MSX2+

 - Excellent compatibility - ported from BlueMSX

Default ROM dir is D:\MSXROMS

When you change disks while playing, the configuration of the game is updated as well.
For example, if I start a game with DISK1 and then during the game I change the disk
in drive 1 from DISK1 to DISK2, then the configuration of the game will now state
that the disk in drive 1 is DISK2.  When you start the game again from the main menu,
it will try to boot off of DISK2.  This is intentional.  Save states for multiple disk
games requires that the disks present in the drives when the state was saved are there
when the state is reloaded.  

If you are playing a game where you have to change the disks during gameplay, then 
I strongly suggest these tips:

 - Turn on auto-loading of save states

 - After you have changed a disk, wait until the game has finished loading whatever
   it needs and then save the state.  Always remember to save the state after 
   each disk swap.  If you do this, then when you exit the game and restart it in the
   future, the disks will be set correctly in the configuration screen, the state will
   automatically load, and you'll be all set.

There is a bug that affects games like Dig Dug and Mappy which makes the video screen
jump around all willy-nilly.  This is a problem with the core and apparently has already
been fixed, but won't be available until the next version of BlueMSX is available.

Everything can be changed from the configuration menu.  

To change things like default save directory, default game directory, etc, go to
Main Menu -> Configuration -> Change Default Directories


Select menu options with the DPAD or with R/LTrigger.  The speed of 
R/LTrigger movements can be controlled by :

Configuration -> Menu Scroll Speed

There are some places where you can enter or change values.  This 
can usually be done in a variety of ways include DPAD Left/Right, 
R/L Trigger, and L/R Thumb.  Try all of them if the values are changing
too slowly.

"A" selects the highlighted choice.  "B" cancels/returns.
"Y" from a file-select list will go up one directory.
