Mophun emulator is an official emulator. It was created by Synergenix Interactive, the creators of Mophun, for the Mophun SDK (latest version 2.5). It was designed for development and demos.

Tuxality mod[edit]

An unofficial mod, created by Tuxality, boots encrypted games without the need to decrypt them first by decrypting them on the fly.


Windows 2.5.4 (Alpha 2)
Windows 2.5.4 (also includes special version for Hitman)
Windows 2.0.2
Windows 1.4.3


2.5.4 Alpha 2 (Tuxality mod)

Released in March 17, 2021 - Drag and drop support is added, minor issues are fixed (e.g. "Compressed MPN file is not supported yet!" is corrected to "Compressed MPN files are not supported yet!") and debug messages due to failure (decryption or source files) are implemented. Planned for the next version, A3 (alpha 3), are decompression, Symbian/Pocket PC key fallback and to run as early as Windows 98, just like the unmodified version

2.5.4 Alpha 1 (Tuxality mod)

Released in March 16, 2021 - Decryption only works if opening from the Open menu. However, compressed games are detected, but cannot run. Instead, an error saying "Compressed MPN file is not supported yet!" appears. Additionally, there may be some cases of crashing and the date, time, profile stuff is not properly set or selected

Game expired[edit]

Some games give the message "Game Expired" at startup, which means that the game has expired. To play, you will have to change the date to the required one. You can find out with the Date Mophun program! Or open the *.mpn file with a text editor like editor or wordpad (on windows) and search for "00" until you find something like this " 20030417". That's the date you have to set your phone when you start the game, after the first succesfull start you can set your date to the old state.

Use a HEX-editor like UltraEdit All you have to do, is search for the date (like 2004 or 2003 or so) in the ASCII part of the screen and change it to any year in the future.., like 2999. Save it, reload it in the phone, and voil? the game won't expire in your lifetime.


Due to the nature of the emulator, encrypted or compressed games do not boot; commercial games are encrypted, and games not designed for Mophun-specific phones (e.g. Symbian, Windows Mobile) are also compressed. In some cases, resources are compressed separately to the program.

Specific games[edit]

The background is incorrectly drawn as a grey flat texture in Hitman, and The Da Vinci Code 3D (except 1.0.1, other versions require vMusicInit) doesn't work, which can be fixed using a special version of the emulator, which has referred to within the community as the Hitman emulator. Neither version boots Exile due to not supporting vMusicInit in 2.5.4, and vSin in the special version.



MophunDecrypt created by JaGoTu, allows for Mophun programs to be decrypted and, from MophunDecrypt 2, decompressed.


A GUI, MophunDecryptGUI, created by childishbeat and written in Python, has been created to give the program a user interface. The latest version is 1.02, which predates MophunDecrypt 2 and has not been updated to support decompression.
