In terms of MSX, the list of software can only be described as ginormous! From unique creations to ports from other platforms, the MSX catalog of software is… well… very very vast.
Yet in the ’80s, programs for MSX flourished like weeds coming from everywhere. An incredible testament to an era when problem-solvers solved problems with programs, and when game designers entertained themselves by designing games to entertain others.
Even nowadays, decades after the MSX standard deprecation, new homebrew games and applications continue to be released by unstoppable relentless users whose love by MSX presents no signals of fatigue.
In this session of our portal you will find:
Yeah, Games! Why not? The one thing that we all love, and the one thing that – for the vast majority of MSX enthusiasts – was and still is the driving force that connects them to the MSX Standard!
MSX is fun, indeed! But also effective and surprisingly efficient in terms of what it can do. From traditional office software like spreadsheet and word editors, all the way to CAD systems and more, the MSX is a swiss-knife in terms of application.
While applications are complex products that target a more elaborate solution, “tools” are those simple small programs that almost always are either life-saving or a must-have on the day-by-bay. The MSX has countless of those.
The MSX never died, and never will. It transcended, from a piece of hardware to a piece of software that emulated the hardware, and then to a piece of hardware that simulated both, to finally became hardware once again. All possible thanks to emulators and everything they taught us about the MSX’s most deep secrets (besides the fact they are super fun!)
Time after time we are working on expanding the MSXALL Portal with more MSX contents. Soon, the Software session will also offer the following:
Sometimes, programmers need to invent something for no good reason other than trying out advanced techniques. Those experiments most of the time are forgotten or simply deleted, as most serve no purpose. However, sometimes the creations are so cool that developers decide to show them off, and then a demo gets crated.
A computer is only as strong and versatile as its operational systems, something the MSX has more than any other 8-bit equipment. Not only the ones specifically created for the platform but also official (and unofficial) ports of some of the most advanced and professional operation systems of the time.
