Porting Kit update 5.0.13 released!

An important release of Porting Kit with an important fix when adding the port to the PK local library. In previous version the ports regularly weren’t added causing justified confusing where the port was. This has now been addressed and working properly again. The update has been done last week, but check to be sure if you have version 5.0.13.

Changes 5.0.13 (31/03/2022):

  • Removing error report if failed to prepare context menu
  • Opening the description of a server app shouldn’t break the local library
  • WSI editor window should be closable again
  • Minor adjust when recovering app name
  • New apps should be added to the local library properly
  • Registry entries shouldn’t have quotes in the name field, but if they do, PK will handle them properly
  • Now it should be possible to launch multiple WSI editors at once
  • The folder where the installers are looked for now can be changed in the userData.json file

When your PK somehow doesn’t update after a while, then re-download Porting Kit from the porting Kit website up here…


BlueMSX (MSX Emulator) for Mac

Yep, it is time to also add Applications to Porting Kit. BlueMSX is the first one of a long row :) Blue MSX is simply the best and most complete emulator for MSX and it took a while to get it finally working properly and the show stopper is now addressed by a workaround having the BlueMSX Application full screen when starting a game/program. It is also mentioned in bold in the application description and video (yep, made a new video after some silence in creating videos). So we are still deciding if for apps there will be a separate tab, but for now we put it between the normal games.

App Description:
The blueMSX MSX emulator is approaching its third anniversary and in this short time it has established itself as the most advanced and feature rich MSX emulator. It supports most common machines and a wide variety of extension hardware. A feature rich debugger is also included in the emulator. During the last two years, the MSX emulation has been extended and support for other systems have been added. blueMSX is now also an SVI emulator, and supports the ColecoVision and Sega SG-1000, SC-3000, SF-7000 consoles.
