Hello, All!

I have released new versions of Speccy and AlmostTI emulators for Android, as well as new VGBA for Android, Windows, and Linux.

The new Speccy fixes World Of Spectrum screenshots and adds periodic state saving. AlmostTI release wraps up about six months of minor changes previously introduced in my other apps. VGBAnext comes with the GB/GBC HALT instruction fix, making more games work at default settings. I have also jumped VGBAnext version from 1.4 to 5.2, to reflect VGBA version it is based on. See below for all the changes.

Hello, All!

I updated three of my emulators this week: VGB, fMSX, and ColEm for Android. In VGB, I fixed the handling of DI+HALT CPU bug emulation to accommodate cases where DI instruction occurs immediately before HALT. In fMSX and ColEm, I changed the way video processor accesses VRAM, removing extra steps not found on a real TMS9918 VDP diagram.
All three emulators now come with an option to automatically save your gameplay state every few minutes. See below for more details.

VGB 4.8.3 -- GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic, and Super GameBoy Emulator
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.vgb
* Disabled DI+HALT bug when DI occurs right before HALT.
* Enabled DI+HALT emulation by default (reinstall app to activate).

* Robocop runs with DI+HALT emulation enabled now.
* The Smurfs runs with default settings now.
* Thunderbirds runs with default settings now.
* Added ability to periodically save gameplay.
* Added "General | Save Emulation State" selector.
* Removed "General | Save State on Exit" option.

fMSX 4.4.2 -- MSX, MSX2, and MSX2+ Home Computer Emulator
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx
* Changed VRAM access logic according to TMS9918 datasheet.
* Added ability to periodically save gameplay.
* Added "General | Save Emulation State" selector.
* Removed "General | Save State on Exit" option.

ColEm 3.5.3 -- ColecoVision Emulator

Hello, All!

Three emulator upgrades made this Christmas week include VGB, MasterGear, and fMSX emulators. All three have got a bunch of user-reported bugs fixed, come with the new DropBox SDK, and use OAuth2 to authorize with DropBox.

I have also brought gradient back to title bars. The flat Material Design version was just to ugly to gaze on. Sorry, Google, keep it to yourself.

VGB 4.8.2 -- GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic, and Super GameBoy Emulator
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.vgb
* Fixed Cheat Editor not finding .cht files in private SD card folders.
* Fixed BACK key on devices where it did not exit emulation.
* Fixed the first/second gamepad detection.
* Fixed a crash in the File Selector when showing grid.
* Returned gradient to the action bar (sorry, Material Design).
* Amplified pixel color raster effects.
* Switched to v2 authentication in DropBox.
* Upgraded to DropBox SDK 1.6.3.
* Improved the What's New dialog.

MasterGear 3.4.6 -- Sega MasterSystem, GameGear, and SG-1000 Emulator
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.mg
[SAME CHANGES AS VGB]

fMSX 4.4.1 -- MSX, MSX2, and MSX2+ Home Computer Emulator

Merry Christmas!

Hello, All!

This week, I've released new versions of VGBAnext, iNES, and ColEm
emulators for Android. All three fix the BACK key not exiting emulation on some devices, eliminate a stray File Selector crash, and switch to the newer DropBox authentication.

I would also like to ask for your help. If you are using my apps and like them, please, tell your friends about my emulators: this is the only way to spread the word about them, since Google Play makes them virtually invisible among other apps.

Since we live in market economy, I can only keep maintaining these apps if people are buying them: the more people use them, the more effort I can put into developing and supporting BOTH paid AND free emulators (such as ColEm, fMSX, or VGBA-Windows).

See below for the complete list of changes.

VGBAnext 1.4.4 -- GameBoy Advance, GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic Emulator
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.emu

* Fixed a crash in the File Selector when showing grid.
* Amplified pixel color raster effects.
* Switched to v2 authentication in DropBox.

* Improved the What's New dialog.
* Improved the backdrop image.

iNES 4.4.2 -- Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and Famicom Emulator
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.ines
* Fixed BACK key on devices where it did not exit emulation.
* Fixed the first/second gamepad detection.
* Fixed a crash in the File Selector when showing grid.
* Amplified pixel color raster effects.
* Switched to v2 authentication in DropBox.
* Upgraded to DropBox SDK 1.6.3.
* Improved the What's New dialog.

ColEm 3.5.2 -- ColecoVision Emulator
