Hello, All!

The new fMSX-Android 4.2.3 release will let you have two players, if you have two gamepads connected. Make sure you connect gamepads before you start fMSX though:

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)

I have also fixed the virtual gamepad skins and switched the whole app to Material Design icons.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added second player, if you have two gamepads connected.
* To play together, connect both gamepads before starting fMSX.
* Added Material Design icons everywhere.
* Retouched virtual gamepad images.

Enjoy!

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

There are currently no ads in the free fMSX version, although I may introduce some in the future. The free version will not let you use Save/Restore and Exchange features though.

Hello, All!

I have just published fMSX-Android 4.2.4, as well as free fMSX 4.2 for Windows and Linux. The portable source code is also available, in case you want to port fMSX to other platforms:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx - free fMSX for Android
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx.d... - full fMSX for Android
http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/ - free fMSX for Windows and Linux, as well as source code

The Android version adds a new button combination to invoke the menu from the gamepad. To open the menu, while emulator is running, press both thumbsticks at once. The new Windows version uses Direct3D textures to render its screen and must support full-screen mode on many more types of video hardware. Both Linux and Windows versions now support the Cheat Hunter tool for finding cheats in games. See below for all changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added Cheat Hunter tool, press F8 and select "Search Cheats".
* Removed waveform interpolation for more realistic sound.
* Changed PSG noise to be more realistic.
* Fixed Android Joystick Layout Editor to properly show labels and gravity.
* Press both thumb sticks at once to open menu inside emulation on Android.
* Added separate icons and banners for fMSX and fMSX-Deluxe on Android.
* fMSX will automatically start fMSX-Deluxe, if it is installed.
* Switched fMSX-Windows to Direct3D textures-based rendering.
* Added "Video | Stretch Full Screen" option to fMSX-Windows.
* Added "Hardware | Debugger" option to fMSX-Windows.
* Added "Help | MSX.ORG Site" option to fMSX-Windows.
* Added "Help | MSX.ORG Forums" option to fMSX-Windows.
* Added -lcd and -nolcd command line options.

Have fun!

Hello, All!

The next fMSX-Android 4.2.6 release is available on Google Play:

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 lets you add your own virtual joystick skin in the /sdcard/fMSX/Controls.png file. After you added this image file, select your skin via "Input | Layout Editor | Shape | Custom Skin" option. The template for creating joystick skins is available from the home page:

http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/#Skin

I have also once again disabled the action bar on devices with physical MENU buttons, as many people complained about their familiar menu options missing. This time though, you can get the action bar back by checking the "General | Enable Action Bar" option. See below for the complete list of changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added joystick skins, place your own skin into /sdcard/fMSX/Controls.png.
* Added "Input | Layout Editor | Shape | Custom Skin" option for choosing your skin.
* Sample joystick skin image available at http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/#Skin.
* Made action bar optional on devices with MENU button (off by default).
* Added "General | Enable Action Bar" option for devices with MENU button.
* Added exception for LG Optimus Zone 2 (does not show submenus).

Enjoy!

Hello, All!

I've published fMSX-Android 4.2.7 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

Today's release replaces the background image with a nice one, adds new icon for fMSX-Deluxe, to distinguish it from the free version, and makes sure emulation states are saved to /sdcard/fMSX, if your Android prevents fMSX from saving them to external SD card.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added new background image, nicer and with no gaps.
* Added new icon for fMSX-Deluxe, to differentiate from fMSX.
* Now automatically creating /sdcard/fMSX if missing.
* When fMSX cannot write SD card, it will save to /sdcard/fMSX.

Enjoy!

This release adds the instant replay feature for both Windows and Linux. Press F8 to activate replay, instantly rewinding your gameplay several seconds into the past. The built-in menu has been moved to the F10 key. If you wish to invoke the built-in debugger, press CTRL+F10. All the other keys stay the same.

* Switched to the new state saving code.
* Built-in menu now available when pressing F10.
* Built-in debugger now available when pressing CTRL+F10.

Marat! I just saw your post by chance, as I don't usually check the emulation forum. I'm glad to see that you keep updating fMSX! The emulation scene owes you so much. :-)

Hello, All!

This morning, I have published fMSX-Android 4.3:

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 adds keyboard logging to the Instant Replay function, making it complete. I have also fixed a memory corruption in the instant replay recorder and made it properly save initial state. The network play now works the same on Android and Windows.

I have also released the source code for fMSX 4.3 that lets you build it for desktop Unix/Linux and port fMSX to other platforms:

http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX43.zip

ALL CHANGES:
* Instant replay now records all keyboard activity.
* Fixed a memory corruption bug in the instant replay recorder.
* Fixed instant replay not recording the first state.

Enjoy!

Hello, All!

The newly released fMSX-Android 4.3.1 includes two new scalers (EPX and EAGLE) and two raster effects (CMY and RGB pixel rasters):

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

Because of the rising number of settings in the "Video" tab, I reorganized the options in that tab a little bit. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added "Video | Color Mask Effect" selector.
* Added "CMY pixels" and "RGB pixels" special effects.
* Added "Video | Interpolation Effect" selector.
* Added "EPX interpolation" and "EAGLE interpolation" effects.
* Renamed "Soften Video" to "2xSal interpolation".
* Merged "Scale Video" and "Stretch Video" into one selector.

Have fun!
