    Talking VGB-Android Release Announcements

    I have just published VGB 3.9.6, the new release of my GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic, and Super GameBoy emulator:

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

    Starting with this version, VGB will continuously record the last 16 seconds of your gameplay. Press the Replay action button or select "Replay" from the menu to instantly go 16 seconds back in time. You can take control of the game at any moment during replay by touching the controls.

    I have also added eight new games to the Cheatopedia: Zelda Oracle of Ages, Wario Land 2/3, Worms, Warriors of Might and Magic, and three X-Men games.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Gameplay recording now always enabled. Select "Replay" at any time!
    * Made replay play all records to the current recording position.
    * Made recording pause when replay is on.
    * Fixed many corner cases in record/replay.
    * Added Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages to the Cheatopedia.
    * Added Wario Land 2 and Wario Land 3 to the Cheatopedia.
    * Added Warriors of Might and Magic to the Cheatopedia.
    * Added three XMen games to the Cheatopedia.

    Smile VGB-Android Release Announcements

    Hello, All!

    I am starting this week with VGB-Android 3.9.7, a new release of my GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic, and Super GameBoy emulator:

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

    Beginning with this version, VGB runs on GoogleTV devices upgraded to Android 4.x (Jelly Bean), such as LG G2/G3 TVs. Yes, it runs on a 55" screen, making for a really big GameBoy. You can control VGB with your remote controller, or plug a USB gamepad into the TV.

    I have also switched VGB to the OpenSLES native sound API, to minimize the sound latency and improve overall performance. On Android devices, where OpenSLES is not available (Android 2.2), VGB will use the legacy Java API.

    People who do not like too much clutter on their screens, will like the new "contour" virtual joystick skin. To enable it, use the "Virtual Joystick Shape" in the Settings.

    Finally, I have taken steps to avoid crashes that sometimes happened after you ran a few games and exited back into the File Selector. The crashes were due to Android running out of bitmap memory. They should not happen now, or at least happen much less frequently. There have been several other important bug fixes as well. See below for the complete list.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * VGB now runs on Google TVs updated to Android 4.x (LG G2/G3).
    * Now defaulting to OpenSLES native audio, for minimal latency.
    * Now recycling bitmaps to prevent 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.
    * No longer requiring touchscreen support from the Android device.
    * Fixed inconsistencies in replay mechanism.
    * 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!

    Cool VGB-Android Release Announcements

    Hello, All!

    Starting this week with a VGB-Android 3.9.11 release. VGB-Android is my GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic, and Super GameBoy emulator:

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

    The new release adds a bunch of hardware emulation options, previously only available from the rather unfriendly Advanced Settings menu. Among other things, you can now tell VGB to use "washed out" colors, just like the original GameBoy Color did with its reflective color LCD. I have also changed the action bar style to match the toolbar and added a proper icon to the parent directory entries in the File Selector.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added "Hardware Options" screen to the Settings.
    * Added new-styled action bar, consistent with toolbar.
    * Added Pocket Printer emulation option to the Settings.
    * Added "Delay Line Interrupts" option to the Settings.
    * Added "Check Cartridge CRC" option to the Settings.
    * Added "Use Washed-Out Colors" option to the Settings.
    * Added proper icon for the parent directory ("..") entry.
    * Added missing string translations.
    * Added DropBox application icons.

    Have fun!

    VGB-Android emulates GameBoy Classic, GameBoy Color, and Super GameBoy on Android phones and tablets. The new version adds customizable color palettes and the ability to choose what GameBoy model you would like to use, including semi-real but cool "Super GameBoy Color".

    I have also added the x86 Android support. If you have an Intel-based Android device, or use desktop Android emulator like AndroVM or Genymotion, VGB-Android should now run for you.

    ALL CHANGES:

    * Users can choose between GB, GBP, GBC, and SGB hardware modes.
    * Added support for Android devices based on Intel x86 CPUs.

    Cool VGB-Android Release Announcements

    Hello, All!

    This week starts with the VGB-Android 3.9.15 release, a new version of my GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic, and Super GameBoy emulator:

    https://market.android.com/details?id=com.fms.vgb

    I have been fixing hardware emulation bugs over the last couple of weeks. As result, Aerostar, Alfred Chicken, Alien Olympics, Robocop 2, Shadowgate, and many other games work now. I have also added the DI+HALT bug emulation, where CPU will execute the instruction following HALT twice, if interrupts are disabled. Had to make this emulation optional though, as some games (such as Robocop) do not work with it. Finally, the Settings dialog is now tabbed, with the separate tab for hardware emulation options, and some other options (such as fast-fowarding and display orientation) have changed their places. See below for the complete change list.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added optional DI+HALT CPU bug emulation.
    * Now enabling LCD controller on startup (fixed Aerostar, Alfred Chicken, and many others).
    * Now disabling interrupts on startup (fixed Robocop 2, Shadowgate, and many others).
    * Now clearing scratch RAM after reset.
    * Settings are now tabbed, for easier navigation.
    * Added Emulation section to the Settings.
    * Moved some options from Input and Video sections to General.
    * Reordered Settings by importance.
    * Added Antz and Antz Racing to the Cheatopedia.
    * Added Armada FX Racers to the Cheatopedia.
    * Added Animaniacs to the Cheatopedia.
    * Added Asterix to the Cheatopedia.

    Have fun!

    Cool VGB-Android Release Announcements

    Hello, All!

    This week's VGB-Android 3.9.16 release is on Google Play now:

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

    VGB emulates GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic, and Super GameBoy video game consoles. The new release makes sure you cannot press two opposing arrow keys at once (some games absolutely hate that) and adds the "Hide Title Bar" option for those users who cannot stand the action bar. Note that once you hide the title bar, you can get it back by sliding your finger down the screen.

    People with Moga gamepads should be able to remap Moga buttons via "Assign Keys" option, something many of you requested. Also, gamepads can now be used to navigate the tabbed Settings dialog. See the complete list of changes below.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Now locking out opposite arrow keys.
    * Added "Hide Title Bar" option to hide status/action bar on startup.
    * Added ability to assign Moga buttons via "Assign Keys".
    * Fixed battery drain when VGB is running in background.
    * Added arrow keys navigation to the tabbed Settings.
    * Added Moga controller navigation to the tabbed Settings.
    * Added Desert Strike to the Cheatopedia.
    * Added Earthworm Jim to the Cheatopedia.
    * Added Earthworm Jim 2 to the Cheatopedia.

    Enjoy!

    Cool VGB-Android Release Announcements

    Hello, All!

    VGB-Android, my GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic, and Super GameBoy emulator, has been upgraded to version 4.0 today:

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

    The major version number change is due to MBC7 and tilt sensor emulation, and the drastic changes to interrupt handling. Kirby's Tilt'n'Tumble game will now work with your phone's accelerometer. Additionally, many games that failed due to interrupt handling, such as Final Fantasy Legend, should work now.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added MBC7 mapper emulation (Kirby's Tilt'n'Tumble works).
    * Reversed IRQ priorities, with VBlank IRQ getting top priority.
    * Checking IRQs when ISWITCH/IFLAGS modified (Final Fantasy Legend runs).
    * Added 93cXX serial EEPROM emulation.
    * Added tilt sensor emulation.
    * Optimized C code performance.

    Have fun!
