The FM Towns is the big brother computer to the FM Towns Marty console. While most games are on CD you will find some on floppy. The Towns Marty Rom is literally nothing but a FM Towns computer stripped down with less ram and less compatibility. There are some original games and a lot of ports (some enhanced) found on other Japanese computers like the NEC PC-9801 and Sharp X68000, like other Jcomputers expect some Eroge/Hentai. ROMS: The roms and Bios can be found all over the internet but adding Neo Kobe to your search might help give a 91GB treat on archive. Emulators: UNZ: The Main emulator for the FM Towns is UNZ, it is even supplied in the per-configured Neo Kobe Emulator Pack. It was the most compatibility but it also requires you to mount the disc image to a virtual drive with a program that supports ASPI drivers like Daemon Tools. It's a process to get working and will not work in Launchbox through a commandline. I assume a bat file would work? I would add it as a secondary backup to your folder for the games that do not work with mess. Mess will Emulate the FM Towns with the correct Bios, for compatibility I used the FM Towns II UX rom pack (like used in the Neo Kobe Emulator Pack). Add your FM Towns UX rom pack (Bios) zip to the rom folder in Mess with the name "fmtownsux.zip". Default Command-Line Parameters CD: fmtownsux -cdrm Disk: fmtownsux -flop1 A warming message stating "This Machine Doesn't work" comes up but games load and work anyways. Not perfect by any means but the only way to get the FM Towns to work with launchbox that I could figure out. If you have anything else to add especially regarding settings or Command-Line Parameters please comment. There are also games that require a system disc along with a CD-Rom, if someone has a salutation for loading both upon opening I would love to know how.
