Hello, All!

fMSX 5.7.3 for Android, a new version of my MSX and MSX2 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 fixes automatic ROM type recognition using built-in CARTS.SHA database and corrects mapper types for a bunch of ROMs. I have also majorly improved Box Art Downloader, adding support for URL redirection and HTTPS protocol. As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning fMSX from the store. You can easily reenable cheats though by downloading this file to your Downloads folder:

ALL CHANGES:
* Based on latest fMSX 5.7 for Windows and Linux sources.
* Fixed SHA1 computation when guessing MegaROM mapper type.
* ASCII16 mapper now preferred over ASCII8 when guess MegaROM type.
* Changed R-Type mapper type to ASCII16.
* Changed DragonQuest 1 mapper type to GENERIC8.
* Changed Animal mapper type to GENERIC8.
* Changed Ashguine mapper type to GENERIC8.
* Changed Royal Blood mapper type to ASCII8.
* Made multiple fixes to Box Art Downloader.
* Fixed Box Art Downloader to use alternative storage location.

Hello, All!

The free fMSX 5.8 Windows and Linux binaries, as well as portable source code, are now available for download:

http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/ -- homepage
http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX58-Windows-bin.zip --Windows binary
http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX58-Ubuntu-x86-bin.tgz -- Linux binary
http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX58.zip -- portable source code

This version fixes SHA1 checksum computation used to recognize ROM mapper types. I have also updated CARTS.SHA database with correct mapper types for a few ROMs. The scaling and special effects infrastructure has been majorly refactored. The new scaling code is optimized for larger screens and better supports multiple monitors. It adds explicit linear scaling option on Windows. Finally, tape images will now open as read-only if they cannot be opened for writing.

ALL CHANGES:
* Will try opening tapes as read-only, if read-and-append fails.
* System ROM files location now defaults to where executable is.
* Fixed SHA1 computation when guessing MegaROM mapper type.
* ASCII16 mapper now preferred over ASCII8 when guess MegaROM type.
* Changed R-Type mapper type to ASCII16.
* Changed DragonQuest 1 mapper type to GENERIC8.
* Changed Animal mapper type to GENERIC8.
* Changed T&E Soft Ashguine mapper type to GENERIC8.
* Changed Royal Blood mapper type to ASCII8.
* Refactored scaling and special effects framework.
* Optimized scaling for large screens and windows.
* Fixed fMSX-Windows behavior with multiple displays.
* Added tape option to "File | Open" dialog in fMSX-Windows.
* Added "Video | Interpolate Video | Linear Scaling" option to fMSX-Windows.
* Enabled "Video | Stretch Full Screen" option with effects enabled.
* Enabled "Video | Force 4:3 Screen" option with effects enabled.

Have fun!
