    Hello, All!

    I have released iNES-Android 3.7.26, a new version of my Nintendo Entertainment System and Famicom emulator:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...d=com.fms.ines

    In this version, I have added support for Nintendo multicart hardware (mappers #37 and #47) and fixed a rather important bug in the MMC3 emulation (mapper #4). Also added the search feature and a better toolbar to the File Selector, among other things.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Fixed mapper #4 (MMC3) register changes.
    * Added mapper #37 (Super Mario Bros. + Tetris + Nintendo World Cup multicart).
    * Added mapper #47 (Super Spike V'Ball + Nintendo World Cup multicart).
    * Added "Search Files" function to search for files when lost in File Selector.
    * Pressing SEARCH key in File Selector now invokes file search.
    * Added a new, better looking toolbar that now includes AlmostTI.
    * Fixed File Selector toolbar at the bottom of the screen.
    * Fixed problem with NAT IP being reported to NetPlay instead of local IP.

    In this version, I have added configurable fast-forwarding speed. You will find this option close to "Persistent Fast-Forwarding" in the Settings. The new multi-line cheat entry feature in the Cheat Editor lets you paste multiple cheat codes at once, without having to type each of them individually. Finally, I have finished adding the automatic frame-skip option. You will find it under "Draw Frames" in the Settings.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added configurable fast-forward speed (x2, x4, x8, or maximal).

    Hello, All!

    The fresh iNES-Android 3.8.4, my NES and Famicom emulator, has just been pushed to the Google Play:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...d=com.fms.ines

    This new release should greatly improve the audio quality. I am continuing to make the audio better though, so expect more audio improvements in the upcoming versions. I have also fixed a nasty typo that sometimes made emulator crash after running a few games and added a bunch of new menu options to the File Selector and the Cheatopedia. Finally, quitting the emulator is now achieved by pressing the BACK key twice, to avoid accidental exits. You can restore the original behavior by disabling "Press BACK Twice to Quit" in the Settings.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Fixed square wave audio frequency sweep (Dragon Warrior 4 and other games).
    * Partially fixed support for register $4017 (APU frame rate and IRQ).
    * Fixed a crash in the Record/Replay icon display.
    * Now exiting emulation when user presses BACK twice (not once as before).
    * Disable "Press BACK Twice to Quit" setting to restore original behavior.
    * Added "Quit" menu option for people who cannot find their BACK key.
    * Added "Completely Delete File" to the File Selector context menu.
    * Added "Report Non-Working File" to the File Selector context menu.
    * Added "Report Non-Working Cheat" to the Cheatopedia context menu.
    * Added multiline cheat entry to the Cheat Editor.
    * Fixed localized strings in Cheat Editor.
    * Fixed several bugs in the Record/Replay functionality.
    * Fixed license verification crash when no network available.

    Enjoy!

    There is a lot of improvements in this release. It introduces shadows and the "light" UI theme in the File Selector (open menu to switch), fixes support for iPega gamepads, enables automatic frame skipping and hardware video acceleration by default.

    See below for the complete list of changes and fixes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Switched to hardware accelerated video by default, for fast video.
    * Switched to automatic frame skipping by default, for smooth video.
    * Added optional light UI theme to the File Selector.

    Cool iNES-Android Release News

    Hello, All!

    I have published iNES-Android 3.8.7, a new version of my Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) and Famicom emulator, to the Google Play:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...d=com.fms.ines

    Starting with this release, I am switching audio to the native OpenSLES API, to reduce latency and improve overall performance. The remaining Android 2.2 (Frodo) users, who do not have OpenSLES, will keep using the original Java-based audio. If you are having trouble with OpenSLES on a newer device, disable it by unchecking the "Native Audio" setting.

    I have also tried fixing the bitmap allocation problem (the most common remaining cause of crashes) and added a new virtual joystick skin, for minimalists. See the complete list of changes below:

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Now defaulting to OpenSLES native audio, for minimal latency.
    * Now recycling bitmaps to avoid Bitmap.nativeCreate() crashes.
    * Added new "contour" joystick shape (see "Virtual Joystick Shape" setting).
    * Added "Audio Rate" setting, for controlling sampling rate.
    * Added "Native Audio" setting, for disabling OpenSLES, if needed.
    * Fixed stutter during NetPlay connection process.
    * Fixed audio initialization always setting 100ms latency.
    * Fixed audio pause/resume when activity pauses or resumes.
    * Refactored audio control between Java and native code.

    Have fun!
