Hello, All!

A new version of my MSX emulator, fMSX-Android 4.1, is now available online:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx (free version)
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx.d... (full version)

This release makes PSG noise emulation more realistic, adds cheat codes, the Cheat Hunter for finding these codes, the Cheat Editor for editing them, and the Palette Editor for changing MSX colors to your liking. I also fixed the BACKSPACE key that did not work for some people and corrected a few other things.

ALL CHANGES:
* Changed PSG noise to be more realistic.
* Added support for ROM cheats in 00AAAAAA-DD and 00AAAAAA-DDDD formats.
* Added support for RAM cheats in AAAA-DD and AAAA-DDDD formats.
* Added custom palettes (*.pal files with 16 #RRGGBB values).
* Added Cheat Hunter that lets you search for cheats.
* Added Cheat Editor for entering your own cheat codes.
* Added Palette Editor for modifying game colors.
* Android [DEL] now acts as MSX [BACKSPACE] key.
* Android [FORWARD_DEL] now acts as MSX [DEL] key.
* Aligned backdrop to the bottom on stretched screens.

Enjoy!

Hello, All!

I have published fMSX-Android 4.1.1, introducing the changes that appeared in my other emulators over the last month:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx (free version)

The new version makes File Selector Search smarter when finding storage folders, introduces "immersive mode" and translucent UI for Kitkat+ users, and adds French translations. If you like listening to the music while playing, the new fMSX lets you choose whether you want to use media keys to control the music player or the emulator.

ALL CHANGES:
* Fixed the File Selector Search to properly find storage.
* Built package with the latest Android SDK.
* Added immersive mode support for KitKat and newer.
* Made system UI translucent when immersive mode is on.
* You must start or finish your fling at the top to toggle title bar.
* Autohiding title bar when "Hide Title Bar" enabled.
* Added French translations, thanks to Sylvain St Amand.
* Added "Use PLAY/RECORD Media Keys" option.
* When enabled, RECORD saves, PLAY restores gameplay.
* Added "Use FFWD/REWIND Media Keys" option.

Enjoy!

Hello, All!

A new version of fMSX-Android, my MSX home computer emulator, is now available for download:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx.d... -- full version
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx -- free version

The fMSX-Android 4.1.2 fixes a bunch of bugs accumulated by the end of 2014, such as random OpenGLES lockups and jitter when using auto frame skip with the OpenGLES enabled. I have also added support for Samsung's split-screen and pop-up window modes, options to search files by name and always show box art (rather than screenshots) in the File Selector. If you have a super high resolution screen, the MSX display and screenshots will look larger now. Finally, hiding the title bar is now on by default. When you need the title bar, show it with a fling from the top or the bottom of the screen.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added multi-window and mini-window support on Samsung devices.
* Added "Show Box Art First" option to the File Selector.
* Added searching by name to the File Selector.
* Added assembler routines for scaling screen to 1280x960+ pixels.
* Fixed OpenGLES lockups on Mali GPUs.
* Fixed auto frame skip when OpenGLES enabled.
* Fixed flickering border on x86 devices.
* Fixed reenabling UI with a fling on Kitkat+ phones.
* Fixed premature hiding of the title bar.
* You can now fling from the top or the bottom to toggle UI.
* Hiding the title bar is now the default behavior.
* Made screenshots and box art bigger on large screens.
* Reenabled automatic frame skip by default.
* Reenabled accelerated video and audio by default.
* Removed deprecated code, settings, and resources.
* Built package with the latest Android SDK.

Have fun!

Hello, All!

I have updated fMSX-Android, my MSX home computer emulator, to version 4.2 today:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx (free version)
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx.d... (full version)

This version has been thoroughly optimized for AndroidTV and other gamepad-only devices. Both File Selector and the emulator itself can now be used without touch screen. I have also redesigned the key mapping dialog to make it fully usable for gamepad users. Finally, I have added the material-style floating action button to the File Selector. Pressing this button will rerun the last played game. If you do not like extra flotsam on your screen, simply uncheck the "General | Show Action Button" option. See below for the complete change list, including all new button assignments.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added floating action button that starts the last played game.
* Added "Show Action Button" option to the Settings.
* Removed waveform interpolation for more realistic sound.

* Added hints to the emulator and key mapping dialog.
* Fixed crashes on devices with no web browser (e.g. ADT-1).
* Changed AndroidTV banner image.
* Redesigned key mapping dialog.
* Press same key twice to remove it from assignments.
* Press same key three times to confirm key mappings.
* DPAD_CENTER key no longer confirms key mappings.
* Enabled gamepad-only emulation interface.
* Press BACK on gamepad to exit emulation.
* Press MODE or BUTTON_A+BACK to open menu.
* Press BUTTON_L1 for MSX SHIFT key.
* Press BUTTON_R1 for MSX GRAPH key.
* Press BUTTON_X for MSX CONTROL key.
* Press BUTTON_Y to toggle virtual keyboard.
* Xperia CIRCLE button now acts as BUTTON_B.
* Enabled gamepad-only mode in File Selector.
* FIRE-R, FIRE-Y, and SELECT buttons open File Selector main menu.
* FIRE-X button opens File Selector navigation menu.

Fms.
The difference with "fMSX Free" and "fMSX Deluxe" is only the show ads and nag screens, or there are other limitations?
