Hello, All!

This week, I updated my MasterGear and fMSX emulators for Android, and also made an bugfix release of Speccy for Android, Windows, and Linux.

The new MasterGear adds the lightgun emulation, so you can now play such games as Operation Wolf and Safari Hunt by madly sticking your finger at the screen :)

The fMSX has got some minor improvements and an accidental crash fix.

The last week's Speccy release broke the "autoload" feature that automatically starts the tape loading. So, this week, I had to update Speccy for all three platforms (Android, Windows, Linux), fixing the autoload bug and adding a few more changes in the process.

MasterGear 3.4 -- Sega MasterSystem, GameGear, and SG1000 Emulator
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.mg
* Added light gun emulation (Operation Wolf, Safari Hunt, etc).
* Added beam position register (port 7Fh).
* Added "Emulation | Light Gun" option to the Settings.
* Fixed a crash in the State Exchange browser.
* Tested and optimized for Nvidia Shield AndroidTV box.
* On AndroidTV, press both thumbsticks down to invoke the menu.
* Reenabled action bar on devices with physical MENU key.

fMSX 4.2.5 -- MSX, MSX2, and MSX2+ Home Computer Emulator
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx
* Tested and optimized for Nvidia Shield AndroidTV box.
* Reenabled action bar on devices with physical MENU key.
* Fixed a crash in the State Exchange browser.
* Improved fMSX Deluxe banner.

Speccy 3.8.1 -- Sinclair ZX Spectrum Home Computer Emulator
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.speccy
http://fms.komkon.org/Speccy/
* Fixed autoload functionality broken in Speccy 3.8.
* Fixed a crash in the State Exchange browser.
* Speccy will automatically start Speccy Deluxe, if both are installed.
* Improved the Speccy Deluxe banner.

Best regards,
Marat Fayzullin

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.

VGBAnext 1.3.6 -- Universal GameBoy Advance, GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic Emulator
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.emu

* Added cheats for Shifting Gears: Road Trip.
* Added cheats for SD Gundam Force.
* Added cheats for Salt Lake 2002.
* Added cheats for four Shrek games.
* Added cheats for Sheep.

ColEm 3.4.3 -- ColecoVision Emulator
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.colem
* 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.
* Made separate AndroidTV banners for free and deluxe versions.

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.
