Most of MSX C programmeur use SDCC as compiler (http://sdcc.sourceforge.net).

Fusion-C is a library that will give you advanced functions to handle many aspect of the MSX (https://github.com/ericb59/Fusion-C-v1.2).

I also developed a performance oriented C game library (https://github.com/aoineko-fr/CMSX).
I can help, but I don't have any documentation yet. ^^

For documentation about the hardware, you can found information on this site's wiki (https://www.msx.org/wiki/Category:Programming) or on the great MSX Assembly Page site (http://map.grauw.nl).

Welcome to the MSX world. \o/

For SDCC compiler, there's also this one: https://www.usebox.net/jjm/ubox-msx-lib/ -- and I'm sure there are others!

Is not as big or complete as FUSION-C, but that could be a good thing? It depends on what you need.

Those are the libraries I used with Night Knight and Uchusen Gamma and it comes with an example game.

You can also take a look at the retrodeluxe engine:


the documentation is still lacking, but there are lots of examples in the tests folder.
