Hello, All!

This week, I released updates to my VGBAnext and Colem emulators for Android. VGBAnext update fixes a crash in the State Exchange (feature that lets users trade their saved gameplay states) and adds cheats for 11 more games, including SD Gundam and Samurai Jack. ColEm has now been tested and optimized for Nvidia Shield AndroidTV box.

Both emulators reenable the action bar on devices with physical MENU buttons. Some Cyanogen users complained that their devices misreport MENU button as "present", effectively disabling all menus. This issue should be gone inmy new emulator releases, but if it still happens to you, let me know.

See detailed change lists below.

Hello, All!

This week, I updated the iNES emulator for Android and released a new major version of Speccy for Windows, Android, and Linux.

Both Android emulators have been tested and optimized on the new Nvidia SHIELD AndroidTV device. Pressing both thumbsticks during gameplay should bring up the menu on AndroidTV and other gamepad-only devices.
I also reenabled the action bar on devices with physical MENU buttons.
Apparently, some Cyanogen builds misreport the MENU button as "present", which made the menu completely inaccessible.

The new Speccy comes with the Instant Replay feature, also found in my other emulators. By pressing the REPLAY button, you instantly rewind your gameplay 10-15 seconds into the past, letting you avoid careless death in a game :) The Direct3D full screen support has also been significantly improved in the latest Speccy.

See the complete lists of changes below.

iNES 4.3.7 -- Nintendo NES, Famicom, Disk System, and VS System Emulator
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.ines
* Tested and optimized for Nvidia Shield AndroidTV device.
* On AndroidTV, press both thumbsticks down to invoke the menu.
* Reenabled action bar on devices with physical MENU key.

Speccy 3.8 -- Sinclair ZX Spectrum and its Clones Emulator
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.speccy (Android)
http://fms.komkon.org/Speccy (Windows and Linux)
* Added replay function letting you "rewind" gameplay at any time.
* Tested and optimized Speccy-Android for Nvidia Shield AndroidTV device.
* On AndroidTV, press both thumbsticks down to invoke the menu.
* Reenabled action bar in Speccy-Android on devices with physical MENU key.
* Made separate AndroidTV banners for free and deluxe versions.
* Made fullscreen mode more robust in Speccy-Windows.
* Added "Stretch Full Screen" option to Speccy-Windows.

Hello, All!

This week, I updated VGBAnext and VGB emulators for Android, also releasing free versions of these emulators for Windows and Linux.

The Android releases have been tested and optimized for the latest Nvidia SHIELD AndroidTV device. Pressing both gamepad thumbsticks will now open the menu, something many AndroidTV users had problems with. I have also added cheats for more GBA and GB games.

The Windows releases switch to Direct3D textures for rendering the screen and include the "Stretch Full Screen" option. I have also revised the full screen initialization code, so full screen should work on more types of video hardware.

See below for the complete list of changes.
