Having had a quick look, it's not entirely clear to me where the rights are likely currently to reside — but I think that's somewhat off-topic for the fMSX announcement thread so I'll pick that up elsewhere if necessary. Thanks to Grauw and mars2000you for resolving the immediate query: my understanding is that probably distribution with fMSX and some other emulators is a (very, very low) calculated risk.

Hello, All!

fMSX 5.2 for Android is now online in the Google Play and Aptoide:

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

For this release, I have switched to the latest Android SDK and fixed gamepad operation on AndroidTV devices. Apparently, latest AndroidTV builds started introducing something called "virtual-search" input device, that is not a real gamepad but gets detected as such. I am now skipping that device when detecting gamepads. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Released free fMSX 5.2 for Windows and Linux.
* Switched to the latest android-27 SDK.
* Now using Android build tools version 27.0.2.
* Fixed gamepad on Nvidia ShieldTV and other AndroidTV devices.
* Any input devices named as "virtual-*" are now ignored.
* Any virtual (android-16) and disabled (android-27) devices are ignored.

Have fun!

Hello, All!

I have just published fMSX 5.2.1 for Android:

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

This release fixes home screen icon placement on newer Androids. You should now be able to hold your finger on a game in the File Selector and choose "Add to Home Screen" to make a home screen shortcut to this game. I have also fixed the DropBox crash that happened when your app folder had subfolders. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Fixed desktop icon placement.
* Fixed crash when passing "file://" URI via desktop icon.
* Fixed DropBox crash when app folder has subfolders.

Have fun!

For this release, I have added the remaining time display during replay and fixed a few replay bugs. The Settings activity now uses the same textured backgrounds as the rest of the app, depending on the dark/light UI setting. Finally, instead of the device-specific theme, I am now using Material Design theme for the Settings. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added remaining time display during replay.
* Fixed replay rollover mechanism.
* Added shadow underneath the time display.
* Settings activity now uses black/white UI setting.
* Switched Settings to Material Design on Lollipop+.
* Fixed native crash when saving state.
* Fixed several other possible sources of native crashes.

Have fun!

Hello, All!

Today, I am releasing fMSX 5.3 for Windows and Linux, a new version of my MSX, MSX2, and MSX2+ home computer emulator. I am also releasing the portable source code for those who would like to compile fMSX on other platforms:

http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX -- home page
http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX53-Windows-bin.zip -- Windows binary
http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX53-Ubuntu-x86-bin.tgz -- Ubuntu Linux binary
http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX53.zip -- portable source code

This release adds remaining replay time display and fixes several bugs in the replay mechanism. I have also recompiled fMSX with "-Wall" option and fixed most of the warnings. Finally, I removed deprecated state saving code and disabled audio interpolation feature by default. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added remaining time display during replay.
* Stopping replay when emulation reset or state loaded.
* Fixed replay rollover mechanism.
* Added shadow underneath the time display.
* Compiled fMSX-Unix with -Wall and eliminated warnings.
* Replaced -DNO_WAVE_INTERPOLATION with -DWAVE_INTERPOLATION, off by default.
* Removed old LoadSTA() and SaveSTA() code.
* Finally deprecated -DNEW_STATES.

Enjoy!

I mentioned this on the news post, but just in case anyone is interested, the Linux sources compile and work in Mac out of the box as well!

The only thing I did was install the "impulseaudio" package using macports, add the include and library folders of impulseaudio and of X11 (opt/local/include and opt/X11 in my case) to the makefile, type "make", and there you go! I had it up and running Smile
