Hello, All!

I've updated three of my emulators for Android this week: VGBAnext,
MasterGear, and VGB. All three have got an option to select the second
player gamepad (although it mostly makes sense for MasterGear). Since
the second player is now optional, AndroidTV users will find all their
input devices working. I have also fixed analog sticks support and a
crash when sharing information about the app. Finally, VGBAnext is
currently on $2.99 sale at Google Play. See below for all the changes.

VGBAnext 5.9.7 -- GameBoy Advance, GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic Emulator
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.emu
* VGBAnext is currently on $2.99 sale at Google Play.
* Fixed problems with non-working input devices on AndroidTV.
* Fixed problems with non-working analog joysticks.
* Added "Settings | Input | Select Second Player" option.
* Now able to select input device for the second player.
* Fixed crash when sharing information about the app.
* Added light and dark skins to the Cheat Editor.
* No longer skinning Settings background, since Android does not support it.

MasterGear 4.2.5 -- Sega MasterSystem, GameGear, and SG-1000 Emulator
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.mg
* Added "Settings | Input | Select Second Player" option.
* Now able to select input device for the second player.
* Fixed problems with non-working input devices on AndroidTV.
* Fixed problems with non-working analog joysticks.
* Added light and dark skins to the Cheat Editor.
* No longer skinning Settings background, since Android does not support it.

VGB 5.5.2 -- GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic, and Super GameBoy Emulator
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.vgb
* Fixed problems with non-working input devices on AndroidTV.
* Fixed problems with non-working analog joysticks.
* Added "Settings | Input | Select Second Player" option.
* Now able to select input device for the second player.
* Fixed crash when sharing information about the app.
* Added light and dark skins to the Cheat Editor.
* No longer skinning Settings background, since Android does not support it.

PAL Roms work fine, NTSC roms are a little slower because of the different clock rate of the NTSC NES. Have fun

SciresM published Atmosphere 0.7.0 to the project's official GitHub a few hours ago.

Atmosphere is a custom firmware for the Nintendo Switch. This means it re-implements some of the Nintendo Switch's Operating system modules, with a twist.

In some cases, it just means future flexibility: a given module might just mimic existing OS functionality, but because Atmosphere is completely open source, it gives developers an opportunity to completely rewrite an existing feature on the console if they feel like it.

In other cases, it copies a module's functionality, but adds a few patches or options, such as extending the process manager to give homebrew binaries more permissions than they would normally get. Other times, it’s pure new functionality, such as a custom filesystem module that will make it easy for programmers to mod video game assets.


You need a hackable console in order to install and run Atmosphere (in general, if you own a “first generation” Nintendo Switch console, it is hackable). You’ll need to enter RCM mode on the console before being able to launch Atmosphere.

There’s a great guide here by noirscape on everything related to hacking your switch, and it includes details for Atmosphere.

Atmosphere – Nintendo Switch Custom Firmware's first official release is here

A way to emulate the Wiimote (+ extensions) with a GameCube controller.

The way this works is by replacing the BT module interface in IOSes with a custom one that behaves as a BT module with a Wiimote connected.

The following video was a first test in which the stick emulates the Wiimote IR camera to move the cursor in the System Menu.

This video shows the hack working in Super Mario Galaxy.

Subscribers to Nintendo's paid Switch Online service got an unexpected surprise today. Alongside the expected released of three new downloadable emulated Nintendo Entertainment System titles—NES Open Tournament Golf, Solomon’s Key, and Super Dodge Ball—Nintendo also offered a version of the original Legend of Zelda that lets players start with a bevy of powerful items.

The new version—marked with a "Special" tag in the UI and dubbed "Living the life of luxury!" in the description—doesn't seem to modify the core game ROM in any way (despite reports referring to it as a "hack"). Instead, the game simply uses a save file that gives Link immediate access to the White Sword, Magical Shield, Blue Ring, and Power Bracelet, along with a red potion, additional heart containers, some secondary items (Food, Letter), and a full complement of 255 rupees, eight bombs, and nine keys.
