Hello, All!

I have just released fMSX 5.1, a new version of my MSX, MSX2, and MSX2+ home computer emulator for Windows and Linux. There is also the source code release for those compiling fMSX for other platforms:

http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX -- home page
http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX51-Windows-bin.zip -- Windows binary
http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX51-Ubuntu-x86-bin.tgz -- Ubuntu Linux binary
http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX51.zip -- portable source code

This release mainly improves platform-specific features. The fMSX-Windows adds support for multiple monitors, fixes disappearing window and flicker that occurred on Win10. The fMSX-Linux switches from the old OSS audio API to PulseAudio, so the sound should now work for you without having to use OSS audio emulation. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added multiple monitor support to fMSX-Windows.
* Fixed disappearing window in fMSX-Windows.
* Fixed best full-screen mode detection in fMSX-Windows.
* Fixed window flicker that appeared after recent Win10 updates.
* Moved disk and cartridge options to "Hardware" menu in fMSX-Windows.
* Switched fMSX-Linux to using PulseAudio sound.
* Updated old PulseAudio driver for 64bit Linux.

Enjoy!

Hello, All!

fMSX 5.1.1 for Android is now online and ready for you to try:

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 improves Joystick Layout Editor, fixing a bunch of bugs and making both screen and keyboard rectangles freely resizable in both dimensions. Do keep in mind that even though you can make screen rectangle as tall as you want, the MSX screen still has fixed ratio, so it will occupy the top part of your rectangle. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Released free fMSX 5.1 for Windows and Linux.
* Greatly improved the Layout Editor, fixing many bugs.
* Layout Editor now lets you resize screen and keyboard in both dimensions.
* Screen and keyboard rectangles will stay centered while resizing.
* Buttons gravity will be restored when resetting layout.

Have fun!

Hi fms
I am a Yemeni MSX lover and I live inn Yemen. Yemen is suffering semi-international aggression of US-UK-KSA-UAE and a bunch of other countries and there is a total sea & air blockade. The Central Bank of Yemen has been moved by the aggressors from Yemen capital Sana'a to Aden which led to the suffering of all Yemeni offecial employees because the aggressors refused to pay them their monthly salaries from September 2016 till this moment. People here are being killed 24/7 by air-strikes & military sea ships or daying due to hunger and diseases.
So I don't have money to pay for the full version of your emulator. May I be rude and ask for it free of charge?! I will keep it for myself only (in my Android phone).
I have a PC and I have openMSX and BlueMSX installed on it but because the aggressors targeted all the power plants we lost electricity since 2015. My computer is now dead as a rock. My only window of pleasure become my Android phone. I use it to serf the web, to connect with the outer world through facebook and tweeter. And I use it to listen to music, pkay games and more importantly enjoy my MSX world through openMSX and your free version which has some limitation that takes away the full joy.
I will understand if you refuse 'cos it's still your full right.
I just asked out of hope that I might get the chance to enjoy your emulator at its full capabilities.
I also promise that I will pay you once the aggression is over and things go back to normal.
Thanks goes to you, to openMSX & blueMSX developers for keeping MSX alive hoply forever.
Stay healthy.

Hello, All!

I am rolling out fMSX-Android 5.1.2 this morning. You can find it on Google Play or in other app stores:

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
http://garageresearch.aptoide.com/ -- on Aptoide
http://android.oms.apps.opera.com/en_us/catalog.php?vendor_i... -- in Opera Store

This release fixes DropBox support, broken since DropBox changed their API. Other parts of the DropBox integration code were improved as well. Finally, I have fixed situation where a save file would "stick" in the backup folder (/sdcard/fMSX) and override newer saves. This issue should be gone now. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Fixed issue with backup save file being chosen over the normal one.
* Switched to DropBox APIv2. DropBox support works again.
* Use "Settings | General | Reset All Settings" to remove old DropBox token.
* Fixed upload dates on the DropBox files.
* Made DropBox worker queue more reliable.
* Renamed DropBox authorization activity.
* Fixed a few other bugs in the DropBox code.

Enjoy!
