Hello, All!

I have finally added a realistically looking virtual keyboard to fMSX-Android 3.7, published to Google Play today:

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)

In this new version, I have also reorganized the menu system and optimized the File Selector for faster and smoother operation. Also, the nag-free fMSX Deluxe now costs only $1.99 (1.99 euros in EU) on Google Play. I doubt that more people will buy it, even at this rather miniscule price, but let us test this theory for a while.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added realistically looking virtual MSX keyboard.
* Collapsed all advanced menu items into single Advanced submenu.
* Made NetPlay a single checkable menu item.
* Now only showing File Selector progress dialog for large folders.
* Optimized File Selector labels and screenshots for smoother scrolling.
* Optimized communications from native code to Java code.
* Fixed NetPlay crash when own IP address cannot be detected.

Have fun!

Hello, All!

It is fMSX users' lucky day today. fMSX-Android 3.7.4, the new version of my MSX home computer emulator, has been pushed to the 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)

Starting with this version, all new fMSX installations will default to automatic frame skipping mechanism, for smoothest video on both old and new Android devices. Existing fMSX users can enable this feature manually, by setting "Draw Frames" option to "automatic". If you are experiencing lag or jitter with the auto frame skip enabled, turn it off and let me know.

I have also fixed support for directional pads found in iPega gamepads, reordered initial dialogs by importance, and made a few other rather important fixes. The below for the complete list.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added support for directional pad on iPega gamepads.
* Switched to automatic frame skipping by default, for smooth video.
* Existing users should manually set "Draw Frames" option to "Automatic".
* Fixed initial parameter passing to the native code.
* Fixed automatic frame skip computation based on frame rate.
* Fixed "Draw Frames" option that was stuck at "65%".
* No longer hiding action bar when MENU pressed, to retain access to items.
* Ordered initial dialogs by importance (About, Change Log, Progress).
* Added Twitter link to the change log, use it to keep track of updates.

Have fun!

Hello, All!

I have updated fMSX-Android, my MSX, MSX2, and MSX2+ home computer emulator, to version 3.7.5 on the Google Play:

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)

This release introduces a couple of very important fixes to the Z80 CPU emulation. The R register should now count cycles properly, and the corner case of LDIR/LDDR overwriting themselves is being handled. From now on, fMSX will a keep separate emulation state snapshot for every disk image you load, same as with cartridges. I have also fixed support for generic USB joysticks with numbered buttons. See the full list of changes below.

ALL CHANGES:
* Now autosaving emulation state for disk images.
* Added Freeze/Restore functionality for disk images.
* Added accurate R register emulation.
* Added accurate LDIR/LDDR emulation.
* Generic joystick buttons can now be assigned and used.
* Added default mappings for generic joystick buttons #1..#10.

Have fun!

Hello, All!

Today, I am rolling out fMSX-Android 3.7.6, a new version of my MSX/MSX2 Home Computer emulator:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx.deluxe (full version)
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx (free version)

Starting with this release, fMSX officially supports GoogleTV devices updated to Android 4.x, such as LG G2/G3 TVs. If you have one of these TVs, you should now be able to play your favorite MSX games on a big screen, using keyboard on your Magic Remote. Plug in a USB joystick for better experience.

I have also switched to the OpenSLES native sound API, to reduce latency and make the whole thing faster. Android 2.2 (Frodo) users will continue using the Java sound API, as they do not have OpenSLES.

There have been many other fixes to the fMSX code since the last update. See the following list for complete details:

ALL CHANGES:
* fMSX now runs on Google TVs updated to Android 4.x (LG G2/G3).
* Now defaulting to OpenSLES native audio, for minimal latency.
* Now recycling bitmaps to prevent Bitmap.nativeCreate() crashes.
* Added optional grid view to the File Selector.
* Added folder icons to the File Selector.
* Added new "contour" joystick shape (see "Virtual Joystick Shape" setting).
* Added "Audio Rate" setting, for controlling sampling rate.
* Added "Native Audio" setting, for disabling OpenSLES, if needed.
* No longer requiring touchscreen support from the Android device.
* Made grid view default on Google TVs.
* Fixed stutter during NetPlay connection process.
* Fixed audio initialization always setting 100ms latency.
* Fixed audio pause/resume when activity pauses or resumes.
* Refactored audio control between Java and native code.

Enjoy!
