Hello, All!

I've just published fMSX 5.5.1 for Android, a new release of my MSX home computer emulator:

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 adds Cheatopedia with pre-made cheats for about 900 MSX games. Since Cheatopedia entries are automatically generated from a collection of .MCF files, they may contain errors and omissions. If you are experiencing problems with Cheatopedia, or would like to make a correction, please, email me. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added Cheatopedia support.
* Added cheats for 900+ MSX games.
* Initial MSX Cheatopedia release, expect some glitches, report problems.
* Added light and dark skins to the Cheat Editor.
* No longer skinning Settings background, since Android does not support it.

Enjoy!

PS: fMSX Deluxe is currently on sale for $1.99:

Hello, All!

fMSX 5.5.2 for Android, a new release of my MSX emulator, is now 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 several changes to the PSG sound chip emulation and fixes drum track in the MIDI recording. Also, all input devices will now be assigned to the first player by default. This should fix problems some AndroidTV users were having. If you would like to assign a gamepad to the second player, use the "Settings | Input | Select Second Player" option. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Moved PSG sound computation to Sync8910().
* Added "Settings | Input | Select Second Player" option.
* Now able to select input device for the second player.
* Fixed problems with non-working input devices on AndroidTV.
* Fixed problems with non-working analog joysticks.
* Fixed crash when sharing information about the app.
* Minor fixes to MIDI recording.

Enjoy!

Hello, All!

fMSX emulator for Android has been updated to version 5.5.3 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 release enables volume controls and other hardware keys to be assigned to gamepad buttons. The entire key assignment UI has been refactored and several bugs fixed there. I also corrected a Cheat Hunter issue, where action bar would not disappear after adding a watch. See below for the complete list of changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Media keys can now be assigned to perform gamepad functions.
* Refactored "Settings | Input | Assign Joystick Keys" code.
* Fixed bug where button, used to close mapping dialog, was added to mappings.
* Added support for diagonal keypad buttons, present since Android-24.

* Fixed problem starting a game with fMSX when fMSX Deluxe is installed.
* Fixed action bar stuck after using "Cheats | Cheat Hunter | Add Watch" dialog.
* Fixed desktop shortcuts not working on some filenames.
* Fixed starting some files from the Gallery.

Enjoy!

* Enable hiding dot-files to ignore system files created by MacOS.

Good to hear that fms!
Actually, I have a peculiar other request. I still frequently use fMSX in a version for PPC. Now it is impossible for me to pay and activate this version for years.
Do you see there still another possibility? On the PPC G5 the emulator is very stable and I like to use it.

Really loved the way it easily supports joypads (it has been a nightmare trying to set-up a bluetooth 8bitdo zero with Retroarch or OpenMSX, one do not easily assign keyboard keys to joypad, the other I can get the directions or buttons to work, never both) and the easy configuration, but unfortunately the PSG sound seems to need some work... SCC games sound goods, but PSG only games like Demonia or Eggerland Mistery play their music with noises/static/interference. Hope that can get fixed, have gladly bought the Deluxe version without ever trying the free one since I've been using fMSX back to the old days where we had NLMSX, BRMSX, fMSX as the emulators for MSX.

Sorry, but you will have to contact Richard Bannister who maintains the MacOS version of fMSX. See http://www.bannister.org/

Please answer a few questions:

1) What fMSX version are you using?
2) What are your sound settings?
3) Could you point precisely where you hear distortions in these games?
4) If you can, make a recording.

PSG emulation has been working with very few issues forever and ever now, so I am surprised there are still noticeable issues.
