MSX Viewer 5
Version 5.1.4 - March 2020
The project MSX Viewer 5 aims at developing a powerful tool to convert PC images to MSX, making possible to use good quality images on MSX.
MSX Viewer 5 is compatible with all screen modes from MSX 1, MSX 2, MSX 2+, chip V9990 and SymbOS. It comes with intelligent algorithms designed to detect MSX colors on image and find the best palette for MSX 2 and V9990.
