https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.ines

For this release, I've rebuilt the app with the stricter compiler warnings and fixed issues reported by the compiler. Several ROM mappers, including MMC5 and multicart mappers, have been fixed.

ALL CHANGES:
* Recompiled sources with "-Wall" and fixed warnings.
* Fixed applying trainer code embedded in .NES files.
* Fixed mapper #5 (MMC5 used in Castlevania 3, etc).

This release fixes a crash in the Joystick Layout Editor and enables physical buttons on the Archos Gamepad.

Finally, I added Cheatopedia cheats for five more games, including Batman and AD&D titles. See below for all the changes.

Re: iNES Release News

Hello, All!

The VGBAnext 6.0 console emulator app is now online:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.emu

Since Google Play has banned my iNES emulator for an invented reason, and I have not been able to find a human being there who would listen and see the situation for what it is, the iNES functionality has now been folded into VGBAnext. Thus, in addition to GameBoy Advance, GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic, and Super GameBoy, the new VGBAnext will also emulate NES, Famicom, DiskSystem, and VS System consoles. That is a total of 8 different consoles in the same app.

Enjoy!
