Re: VGB Release News

Hello, All!


The free VGB 5.6.6 fixes blue screen tint on Chromebooks and some other devices and prevents double clicks from starting two instances of the same game. Since Google banned VGB from Google Play, I am releasing it on my own web site as a free APK file:

The complete VGB functionality is also available in VGBAnext, my universal GBA, GBC, and NES emulator. See below for all the changes in the new VGB release.

ALL CHANGES:
* Fixed double clicks starting two game instances on some devices.
* Fixed screen going blue on some Androids, such as Chromebooks.
* Added standard AndroidTV search functionality.
* Fixed settings not being applied after changing them in Preferences.
* Enabled navigation with DPAD_CENTER, DELETE, and ESCAPE keys.

Re: VGB Release News

Hello, All!

The free VGB 5.7 for Windows and Linux, my GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic, and Super GameBoy emulator, is now available for download:

http://fms.komkon.org/VGB/ -- homepage
http://fms.komkon.org/VGB/VGB57-Windows-bin.zip --Windows binary
http://fms.komkon.org/VGB/VGB57-Ubuntu-x86-bin.tgz -- Linux binary

The new version fixes several bugs with moving and resizing the application window and saves the choice of physical gamepad in VGB-Windows. The sound chip time is now measured in microseconds rather than milliseconds, for better precision. Finally, VGB-Windows comes with a menu option for clearing all current settings, in case they get messed up.

ALL CHANGES:
* Sound chip time is now measured in microseconds.
* Fixed high-frequency sound limit (GBC Frogger).
* Added "File | Clear Settings and Quit" option to VGB-Windows.
* Fixed small windows behavior in VGB-Windows.
* Fixed window position behavior in VGB-Windows.
* Saving physical joystick/gamepad selection in VGB-Windows.

Have fun!

Re: VGB Release News

Hello, All!

The free VGB 5.8 for Windows and Linux, my GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic, and Super GameBoy emulator, is now available for download:

http://fms.komkon.org/VGB/ -- homepage
http://fms.komkon.org/VGB/VGB58-Windows-bin.zip --Windows binary
http://fms.komkon.org/VGB/VGB58-Ubuntu-x86-bin.tgz -- Linux binary

The new version includes majorly refactored scaling and special effects framework and a simple CPU-based linear interpolation image scaling algorithm. The CPU-based interpolation is used when it is impossible to use GPU to scale screen images. The Windows version has also got file drag'n'drop support and explicit "Video | Interpolate Video | Linear Scaling" option. The Linux version now supports "-linear" command line argument.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added file drag'n'drop support to VGB-Windows.
* Added CPU-based simple linear scaling algorithm.
* Refactored scaling and special effects framework.
* Optimized scaling for large screens and windows.
* Enabled "Video | Stretch Full Screen" option with effects enabled.
* Enabled "Video | Force 4:3 Screen" option with effects enabled.
* Added "Video | Interpolate Video | Linear Scaling" option to VGB-Windows.
* Added -linear command line option to VGB-Linux.

Have fun!
