The APMSX card is made by Ian Kim for APPLE IIe & IIGS that allows to run MSX1 software. A joypad is sold in option.

It has some limitations on Apple IIGS to acces to the memory card but causes no problem to run the majotity of games. Not working on Apple II/II+.

APMSX requires the SD DiskII plus interface to works.
