There exist several emulators, allowing to run X68000 games on a PC. I suggest
using these two:
XM6 (367 KB) xm6_170.lzh
WinX68kHighSpeed (193 KB)
BIOS (483 KB) x68000_bios.zip
In order to start either emulator, put bios files (cgrom.dat
and iplrom.dat) into emulator folder.
The Sharp X68000 games were originally distributed on
floppy disks (large games often required several disks).
Floppy disk images usually have extensions .xdf or .dim. In
order to load a game into X68000 emulator, click "FDD0"
("Floppy Drive #0") menu item and browse for floppy disk
image. If game comes on two diskettes, load the second
floppy image into FDD1. Then click "reset" menu item.
In order to play games that come in the form of hard
drive images ( .hdf extension, 39.5 MB) you will need: for
XM6 go to "tools">"options">"SASI". Set quantity of drives
to "1". You will see a path to your image of HDD. Click "1"
(under "No." header) and browse for image you want to use.
For WinX68kHighSpeed click "Option" > "Config" >
"Miscellaneous"; In the "filename" field click "open" button
and browse for image you want to use. Then click "reset"
Many Sailor Moon X68000 games cannot be played from
keyboard directly. For XM6 you will need either virtual
joystick or an actual one. You can install a virtual
joystick using program PPJoy.

WinX68kHighSpeed has built in joystick emulation. Click
"option" > "JoyKey Mode".
Important: before playing any games you'll have to set
amount of memory used to maximum values. For
WinX68kHighSpeed click "Option" > "The amount of MainMemory
setting in SRAM". Set the value to 10. For XM6 click "Tools"
> "Options" > "System"; in "memory" field select from drop
down menu "12 MB (Maximum)". Close emulator and start it
