Re: iNES Release News

Hello, All!

Since Google has banned my iNES emulator from Google Play, I have made the free iNES version available here:

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

Download it, play it on your devices, spread it wide, let the other people know they can get it here. To get full access to all iNES functions, latest updates, and support, please, consider downloading VGBAnext:

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

It is available from Google Play and includes the complete iNES functionality, as well as VGBA and VGB.

Enjoy!

Re: iNES Release News

Hello, All!

I have just released a completely free APK for iNES 5.7.1, my NES, Famicom, DiskSystem, and VS-System emulator:

http://fms.komkon.org/iNES/iNES-Android-5701.apk

This release is important, since it introduces the new AndroidTV interface I have been working on for the last few months. Box art and some other features are not yet supported, but they are coming soon. If you see any problems with the new interface, please, email me. I have also fixed gamepad button assignments and added native support for 64bit Intel CPUs. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added completely new, modern AndroidTV interface.
* Completely refactored File Selector code.
* Fixed gamepad button assignments.
* Added native 64bit Intel support.

Enjoy!

Re: iNES Release News

Hello, All!

I've released the new iNES 5.7.3 today, my free NES, Famicom, DiskSystem, and VS-System emulator:

http://fms.komkon.org/iNES/iNES-Android-5703.apk

The virtual gamepad now looks the same in all screen resolutions. If you changed the size of your virtual gamepad, you may need to adjust it once more in this release. I have also fixed a bunch of real and potential crashes and switched to the modern AndroidX and Firebase APIs. This means that at least Android 4.1+ (Jelly Bean) is required to run the new version. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Virtual buttons now have same size on all devices.
* App now requires Android 4.1+ (Jelly Bean) to run.
* Improved the new AndroidTV interface.
* Fixed rare division by zero when creating icon tiles.
* Fixed missing method crash in the new AndroidTV UI.
* Fixed null pointer crash when starting new AndroidTV UI.
* Fixed null pointer crash when visiting Google Play.
* Changed Apache HTTP library linkage.
* Switched to "androidx.leanback.*" APIs.
* Switched to Firebase for reporting.
* Switched to Gradle 5.6.

Enjoy!

Re: iNES Release News

Hello, All!

I have just published iNES 5.7.8 for Android, a free version of my NES, Famicom, DiskSystem, and VS-System emulator:

http://fms.komkon.org/iNES/iNES-Android-5708.apk

No Google Play release today, since their wonderful team is once again unhappy with some aspect of the app, undisclosed to me. The latest release fixes a bunch of issues, listed below.

ALL CHANGES:
* Fixed double clicks starting two game instances on some devices.
* Fixed screen going blue on some Androids, such as Chromebooks.
* Fixed settings not being applied after changing them in Preferences.

Re: iNES Release News

Hello, All!

I have finally managed to push the free iNES 5.7.10 for Android into Google Play store today:

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

This time, Google inquisition crack team has forced me to do the following:

* Change the icon so that it does not show NES console, because they think it is a veiled copyright violation.
* Change the app title so that it does not contain the word "NES", for the same reason.
* Remove toolbar at the bottom of the screen, since they think it is "deceptive advertising".

I have no idea what is going on at that company and inside its management heads, but it is not good. Not only they treat developers like trash, shoveling them out at random with no real possibility of appeal or feedback, but there is serious loss of common sense at play. Anyways, this release contains the same changes introduced in the non-GooglePlay release a week ago, plus a few others.

ALL CHANGES:
* Fixed double clicks starting two game instances on some devices.
* Fixed screen going blue on some Androids, such as Chromebooks.
* Fixed settings not being applied after changing them in Preferences.
* Google Play "review team" no longer accepts app icons shaped as console.
* Google Play "review team" no longer accepts console name as part of app name.
* Google Play "review team" considers toolbar "deceptive advertising".

Re: iNES Release News

Hello, All!

I've released the free iNES 5.7.14, a new version of my NES and Famicom emulator for Android:

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

I am releasing this version as a standalone APK, since I am unable to get it published via Google Play any more. This release adds the list of available storage devices (SD cards, USB drives, etc) to the "Change Folder" dialog to make it easier to switch. Same devices can be found in the top row of AndroidTV UI icons. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added list of available storage devices to "Change Folder" dialog.
* Added available storage devices to the top row in AndroidTV UI.
* Changed message indicating that Android denied a directory listing.

Re: iNES Release News

Hello, All!

I have managed to publish the latest version of iNES for Android, 5.7.14, to Google Play:

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

It is essentially the same app as the one available from iNES website. You may want to install it if you prefer automated updates, although pushing each successive update to Google Play has become a hugely difficult task. Every single time, I have to prove to Google meat drones that the app does not include any Nintendo assets, has no NES images anywhere, and does not even mention NES in the app description or the title.

Anyways, enjoy while it lasts.

Re: iNES-Android Release News

The new version includes majorly refactored scaling and special effects framework and a simple CPU-based linear interpolation scaler. The CPU-based interpolation is used when it is impossible to use GPU to scale screen images.

Re: iNES-Android Release News

Hello, All!

I've published iNES 5.9.1 for Android, a new version of my NES, Famicom, DiskSystem, and VS-System emulator:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.ines.free -- at Google Play

https://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/iNES-Android.apk -- outside Google Play
https://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/ -- homepage

Starting this November, Google no longer allows Android apps to access files on Android10+ devices, outside app's sandbox. All storage access is now supposed to be done via something called "Storage Access Framework".

I had to make major changes to iNES in order to comply with the new regulations. If you have a newer Android10+, you will see the list of storage volumes in the File Selector. Once you click on a volume, the app may ask you for permission to access it. Otherwise, things should work the same as before. If you find any new problems with the app though, please, report them to the support group or email me directly. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Refactored app to comply with Google's latest ban on file I/O.
* On Android 10+, all file access is now done via content providers.
* Content is copied to a temporary folder for use, changes moved back on exit.
* You may have to give app separate permission to read each storage location.

Have fun!
