blueMSX (default)

BlueMSX requires two folders, ‘Databases’ and ‘Machines’, that are available from the zip for the full version of blueMSX for windows. Go to the blueMSX Download Page. Ignore the radio select and “Download” button, and click on the link labled, where YYY is the current version number. Unzip the file and move the ‘Databases’ and ‘Machines’ folders to the /roms/bios folder on your ROMs card.

GearColeco & SmsPlus

GearColeco and SmsPlus both require the same BIOS file, but with a different name. If you get the BIOS for one, you can simply duplicate it and rename the duplicate to satisfy the requirement for the other.
