ScummVM v1.9.0 has been released:

" ScummVM is a program which allows you to run certain classic graphical point-and-click adventure games, provided you already have their data files. The clever part about this: ScummVM just replaces the executables shipped with the games, allowing you to play them on systems for which they were never designed!

ScummVM supports many adventure games, including LucasArts SCUMM games (such as Monkey Island 1-3, Day of the Tentacle, Sam & Max, ...), many of Sierra's AGI and SCI games (such as King's Quest 1-6, Space Quest 1-5, ...), Discworld 1 and 2, Simon the Sorcerer 1 and 2, Beneath A Steel Sky, Lure of the Temptress, Broken Sword 1 and 2, Flight of the Amazon Queen, Gobliiins 1-3, The Legend of Kyrandia 1-3, many of Humongous Entertainment's children's SCUMM games (including Freddi Fish and Putt Putt games) and many more.

Hello, All!

I have updated my iNES and fMSX emulators for Android this week. While fMSX has just got some bugfixes, with the iNES release I am starting to switch my apps to the Android Nougat SDK. The newer SDK will let me introduce Nougat-specific features, such as multiwindow support, in the upcoming releases. Currently, this feature is only available on Samsung devices. See below for all details.

iNES 4.6.3 -- Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and Famicom Emulator
* Switched to Android Nougat platform (android-25).
* Switched to Java Development Kit 1.8, newest ANT and ProGuard.
* On Marshmallow+, app asks for permissions on startup.
* Fixed scalable images used for tiles in the File Selector.

fMSX 4.7.3 -- MSX, MSX2, MSX2+ Home Computer Emulator
* More fixes to BASIC-only cart loader (Karamaru, etc).
* Fixed code that selects app to run when opening a cart, tape, or disk.
* Fixed inconsistently initialized preferences.
* Fixed "Quit" option in the File Selector menu.
* Made "What's New" dialog fill the screen.

My free apps are also available outside Google Play Store:
http://garageresearch.store.aptoide.com/ -- in Aptoide Store
http://android.oms.apps.opera.com/en_us/catalog.php?vendor_id=199556 -- in Opera Store

- Download
- Homepage
- Source code at Github

"Snes9x is a portable, freeware Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) emulator. It basically allows you to play most games designed for the SNES and Super Famicom Nintendo game systems on your PC or Workstation; which includes some real gems that were only ever released in Japan.

Snes9x is the result of well over three years worth of part-time hacking, coding, recoding, debugging, divorce, etc. (just kidding about the divorce bit). Snes9x is coded in C++, with three assembler CPU emulation cores on the i386 Linux and Windows ports."

Hello, All!

This week, I have published new versions of my iNES, MasterGear, and ColEm emulators for Android. All three add CRT vignetting simulation, let you assign special functions (save, restore, replay, etc) to gamepad buttons, and fix a bunch of issues in the File Selector. I have also axed Chartboost ads from the free version of ColEm, since they were ugly and Chartboost never paid for showing them. See below for details.

iNES 4.6.2 -- Nintendo NES and Famicom Emulator
* Added CRT vignetting simulation effect.
* Enable "Video | Hardware Acceleration" to see new effect.
* Check "Video | Apply CRT Vignette" to enable vignetting.
* Special functions (freeze, restore, etc.) can be assigned to gamepad.
* See L1, L2, R1, R2, THUMBL, THUMBR under "Input | Assign Special Keys".
* Fixed code that selects app to run when opening a cart, tape, or disk.
* Fixed inconsistently initialized preferences.
* Fixed "Quit" option in the File Selector menu.
* Made "What's New" dialog fill the screen.

ColEm 3.8.2 -- ColecoVision Emulator
* Removed Chartboost ads from the free version (they suck and never pay anyway).
* Removed READ_PHONE_STATE permission request from the free version.

MasterGear 3.6.3 -- Sega MasterSystem, GameGear, SG-1000 Emulator
