Re: MasterGear-Android Release News

Hello, All!

I have released MasterGear 4.6.11 for Android this morning, a new version of my Sega MasterSystem and GameGear emulator:

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

This release is based on the latest MasterGear 4.6 for Windows and Linux, published earlier this week. It includes a new, separate option for linear image scaling. Finally, MasterGear is on $2.99 sale at Google Play this week.

As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning MasterGear from the store. You can easily reenable cheats though by downloading this file to your Downloads folder:

http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/MasterGear-Cheats.zip

See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Based on the latest MasterGear 4.6 sources.
* Added separate option for linear image interpolation.

Enjoy!

Re: MasterGear-Android Release News

Hello, All!

I have published MasterGear 4.7, a new version of my Sega MasterSystem, GameGear, SG-1000, and SC-3000 emulator for Windows and Linux:

http://fms.komkon.org/MG/ -- homepage
http://fms.komkon.org/MG/MG47-Windows-bin.zip -- free Windows binary
http://fms.komkon.org/MG/MG47-Ubuntu-x86-bin.tgz -- free Linux binary

The new MasterGear adds a simple, CPU-based linear interpolation scaling algorithm, for cases where using hardware-based scaling is unfeasible. The Windows version also adds support for drag'n'drop: you can now drag supported files onto application window in order to load them. The Android version of MasterGear is currently on $2.99 sale at Google Play:

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

If you like MasterGear on the desktop, please, consider buying the Android version to support further MasterGear development. See below for all the changes made in this week's release.

ALL CHANGES:

* Added CPU-based simple linear scaling algorithm.

* Added file drag'n'drop support to MG-Windows.

* Added "-linear" command line option to MG-Linux.

Have fun!

Re: MasterGear-Android Release News

Hello, All!

I've just published MasterGear 4.7.1 for Android, a new version of my Sega MasterSystem, GameGear, and SG-1000 emulator:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.mg -- at 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 MasterGear 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!

Hello, All!

I've released MasterGear 4.7.2 for Android, a new version of my Sega MasterSystem, GameGear, and SG-1000 emulator:

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

For this release, I have fixed a bunch of bugs introduced by the refactoring. The app should once again run on Android 4.2+ devices and handle file names with parentheses and spaces. Several possible crash sources have also been fixed.

As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning MasterGear from the store. You can easily reenable cheats though by downloading this file to your Downloads folder:

http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/MasterGear-Cheats.zip

See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Fixed several crash sources that popped up after refactoring.
* Fixed compatibility with Android 4.2/4.3.
* Fixed handling of spaces and parentheses in "content://" URIs.
* Fixed list of volumes in "Change Folder" dialog.
* Fixed "Change Folder" functionality.
* Fixed leaked dialog window on app exit.
* Added rounded corners to legacy icons.

In somewhat related news, VGBAnext, my universal GBA, GBC, and NES emulator, is on $2.99 sale at Google Play for the next couple of days:
