Emulators: MuchimeX

MuchimeX: Multi Chinese Machine Emulator for Xbox

User Guide:


MuchimeX tries to emulate a lot of machines that use a SPG2xx processor (manufactured by Sunplus) with the u'nSP instruction set. This includes several consoles like JungleTac's Sport Vii, a lot of Jakks Pacific TV Plug 'n Play videogames, and lots of other electronic devices.  

Furthermore, there are other consoles like the Vtech V.smile that use this same processor. Currently this emulator doesn't support their games, but in the future it will probably do it.

The emulation is almost perfect and full-speed, except in the sound. The sound is not emulated, because the original PC emulator has not emulated the sound neither.


It is really difficult to find roms/bios dumps for this kind of devices, but at the moment I have managed to test it with success, wiith all these systems/bios/roms:

* Sport Vii / Chintendo Vii: All the internal games work, mainly controlled with the HandyBar/Viimote (read the "Controls" and the "Viimote" sections for more information to play these games).

* Sport Vii / Chintendo VII cartridges: I have tested the VC_1 and VC_2 (named "7 in 1" and "10 in 1"), with success. The VC_3 cartridge probably works too, but I have not been able to find a dump of it. Please, let me know if you managed to test it.

* Jakks Pacific plug 'n play games: I have tested if with the games Batman and Wall-e, with success. Other games like the Winnie the Pooh one, must work too. And a lot of other Jakks Pacific games should work with a few adds/changes in the emulator. If you find more dumps and they don't work, let me know and I will try to patch the emulator to support them.

* As a final surprise, there are a few V.smile games that already load (like the Cinderella and the Ariel ones) but they are still not playable because the controls are still not emulated. But you can load them and see the title screen, as a proof that we are really close to achieve a partial emulation of the Vtech V.smile console. On the other hand, games that use other devices like the VMotion or the V.smile CD, will not work yet, because these devices are not emulated in this emulator yet.

* Besides, there are a lot of 16-bit chinese cheap consoles with hundreds of internal games that use this same Sunplus processor, so if we manage to find a dump of their bios/roms, they will probable work in this emulator too (maybe a little patch will be needed, some kind of "2 minutes fix").


If you search for ROMS, you will probably find only 2: Chintendo VC_1 and VC_2 (or "10 in 1" and "7 in 1"), because those are "roms" (cartridges). The rest of the games are internal of these consoles, so you must search for the keyword "BIOS", not "roms". For example, the "Batman" and "Wall-e" games are the BIOS of these Plug 'n Play consoles. Also, the keyword "dump" can be usefull to find these kind of roms/bios.


The button mapping is extremely easy:

D-pad: D-pad
A-button: A-button
B-button: B-button
X-button: C-button
Start button: Menu button

The BACK button displays the Viimote configuration options, and START+BACK will exit from the game/emulator.




Thanks to all the persons that, during the years, have built an awesome scene for the Xbox: developers, graphic artists, contributors, Xtras creators, admins, moderators... and gamers too! 

Thanks to all the people that have helped me in the development of this or any other of my projects: Neobomb, Hyper_Eye, Madmab, Freakdave, weinerschnitzel, XtecuterX73, darknoir, bigby, elconejotres, the Surreal64 CE team, darknior, dominater01, elconejotres, NOTTHESAME and xcalibur. 

Thanks to the creators of the original PC emulator: Stephane Marchesin and Segher Boessenkool.

The sources of the emulator are in the same package, so if anyone wants to see them and try to improve them, it will be very wellcome. You can contact me if you want to do it.

Thank you for reading this! 🙂
