fMSX- It’s been almost two years since fMSX PSP last saw an update, so today seems as good a day as any to release an updated version.
New in this release:
* PSPLIB updated to latest version
* Images are now saved under PSP/PHOTOS/fMSX PSP
* Virtual keyboard updated, option for “toggle display” mode
* Screenshot previews in file browser
This release also significantly improves the save state format by adding versioning, and automatically switching the emulated machine to the system specs appropriate for the save state (no more cryptic state loading errors). To clarify, say you save a game in MSX1 mode, then switch to MSX2. In earlier versions of the emulator, unless you switched back to MSX1 prior to loading state, state would refuse to load. If you changed other features, such as memory sizes and video mode (NTSC/PAL), you would have to remember the specific setup for the game, or the game would not load. In 3.5.40, save state format includes all the necessary system data, and will automatically switch to the appropriate setup. This is the normal behavior in most other computer emulators, such as Fuse and VICE.
That said, please note that only new states will benefit from this – while fMSX PSP is backwards compatible, previously saved states will only load if you restore system setup prior to loading, as before. Of course, if you never switch from the usual setup (MSX2, 128kB, NTSC), this whole discussion is probably moot

4. See your PSP run unsigned code. :)
It'll autoexit after some time
Graphical Vote Table (Bugfix) Graphical Vote Table (Bugfix)
It wasn't so long ago that we featured HaxXBlaster's Graphical Vote Table (that non-devs could turn into a Magic 8-Ball) here at QJ. Lua developers have warmly received his work and has given their support and opinion through its release thread over at the forums. Which by the way has been very busy since the application's release

We were planning on making a Justin Timberlake reference for this article, but we realized it was a lot tougher than it seemed, so let's keep it straight. NJ's released yet another version of his emulator programs, as well as a bugfix to the source codes
PSPLINK 0.9h PSPLINK 0.9h
TyRaNiD, one of my favorite developers, has just updated PSPLINK. In case you've been out for a while, PSPLINK is a great tool for PSP developers. It allows you to do a lot of stuff without going back to the PSP's XMB, or technically, VSH. And that in itself is a great boon for developers
