Hello, All!

Since Google has banned two of my emulators, iNES and VGB, from their
Google Play, I am now releasing them for free. You can download the
latest APKs from my website:

http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/iNES-Android.apk
http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/VGB-Android.apk

Download them, use them, spread them, make sure as many people as
possible get them. Every copy you install loses Google $1.50 in missed
revenue, but I guess they couldn't care less. See below for the list of
changes in these free iNES and VGB releases.

There’s been a bit of a buzz around the release, a couple days ago, of “Spine”, a tool that claims to be a PS4 emulator for Linux.

Turns out it’s the real deal, according to a few trusted members of the PS4 scene who have tried it.
