    Cool VGB-Android Release Announcements

    Hello, All!

    Today, I have published VGB-Android 4.1, a new version of my GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic, and Super GameBoy emulator:

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

    This new version adds MMM01 ROM mapper emulation, used in such multigame cartridges as Taito Variety Pack and Momotaro Collection 2. I have also switched to the newest Android NDK version and added seven more games to the Cheatopedia.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added MMM01 mapper emulation.
    * Taito Variety Pack and Momotaro Collection 2 work now.
    * Switched to the newest NDK and compiler toolchain.
    * Added cheats for four Rugrats games to the Cheatopedia.
    * Added Seaquest DSV cheats to the Cheatopedia.
    * Added Samurai Showdown cheats to the Cheatopedia.
    * Added Rolan's Curse 2 cheats to the Cheatopedia.

    Enjoy!

    Hello, All!

    After receiving reports of VGB-Android 4.1 not being able to restore saved states, I have found a bug, accidentally introduced when adding MMM01 mapper support, that affected state restore process. I have just released the bugfixed VGB-Android 4.1.1:

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

    If you are a VGB user, please, upgrade as soon as the new version becomes available from the Google Play Store. If you are still unable to restore from a previously saved state, reset emulation by selecting "Reset" from the menu. Sorry for the trouble: these things happen now and then.

    Cool VGB-Android Release Announcements

    Hello, All!

    The new VGB-Android 4.2, released today, adds support for TAMA5 cartridges and often requested slow-motion mode. I have also fixed the display artifacts and the multitouch input. If you have previously complained that you can't press more than one button at once, upgrade and try again

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

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added TAMA5 mapper support (Tamagotchi 3).
    * Added slow-motion mode, combined with fast-forward mode.
    * Fixed left/top edge artifacts with accelerated video enabled.
    * Fixed multitouch input in cases where it didn't work.
    * Added Pokemon Trading Card Game 2 cheats to the Cheatopedia.
    * Now disabling irrelevant virtual keyboard settings.
    * Fixed rare crashes in gesture detection.

    Have fun!

    Cool VGB-Android Release Announcements

    Hello, All!

    Starting this week with the VGB-Android 4.2.1 release:

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

    The new VGB-Android fixes line-match interrupts (so that Street Fighter 2 and a few other games run with no glitches), makes scanline effects work properly when running Super GameBoy games, and adds support for external SD cards on Kitkat. There is also a bunch of other fixes, covered below. Finally, I removed the MENU button off the screen, to avoid accidentally entering the Advanced Settings menu. These settings can still be accessed via "Advanced | Settings" Android menu.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Fixed line-match interrupts to occur on LYC writes (Street Fighter 2).
    * Fixed scanline effects in Super GameBoy mode.
    * Made a work-around for external SD card use on KitKat!
    * If can't write to external SD card, saving states to /storage/sdcard0/VGB.
    * If VGB folder doesn't exist, saving states to /storage/sdcard1/Android/data/com.fms.vgb/files.
    * Removed the MENU button from the screen (use "Advanced | Settings" instead).
    * Fixed sections navigation in the File Selector.
    * Fixed a crash in Cheatopedia, when displaying the list.
    * Fixed rare crashes in gesture detection.
    * Fixed recognition of multiple file extensions.

    Enjoy!

    Hello, All!

    I have just pushed VGB-Android 4.2.3, a new version of my GameBoy emulator, to the Google Play:

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

    In this release, I have introduced the Palette Editor that makes it easier to modify game colors. Select "Edit Palette" from the menu to see how it works and send me your suggestions on how to improve it. I also made several rather important fixes, including NetPlay connection fix and the virtual directional pad fix. Finally, I rectified the situation where restoring the gameplay state reset the GameBoy model: some users complained about VGB forcing them into Super GameBoy mode every time they returned to the game.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added Palette Editor, letting you adjust colors at runtime.
    * Fixed GameBoy model reset when restoring state.
    * Fixed network play, previously broken for some users.
    * Fixed directional pad activated by touching outside.
    * Added "Edit Palette" option to emulator and File Selector menus.
    * Added .PAL file display to File Selector and Gallery.
    * Added tilt joystick sensitivity setting.
    * Improved melodic audio quality.

    Have fun!

    Hello, All!

    With VGB-Android 4.2.5, published today, I have added a decorative background and started improving the DropBox integration:

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

    Both features were requested by the users. I have made a subtle portrait mode background that looks like a real GameBoy Color. Hope you like it. If you don't, make your own and send it in: I will consider including it with the app. DropBox will no longer nag you with authentication requests every time you run VGB, and both Gallery and DropBox should now work on Kitkat SD cards.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * DropBox no longer requires login every time you open it.
    * Added decorative background in the portrait mode.
    * Added Gallery support for SD card folders on Android Kitkat.
    * Added DropBox upload from SD card folders on Android Kitkat.
    * Hopefully fixed "O" button on Sony Xperia gamepads.
    * Upgraded DropBox SDK to the latest version.

    Have fun!

    Hello, All!

    The next VGB-Android 4.2.6 release is now online:

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

    With this release, I am introducing the automatic Box Art Downloader, improved Palette Editor and better DropBox integration. Also, people who do not like the backdrop image, can now supply their own or disable it altogether. Please note that you can either search for individual game box art (by selecting "Download Box Art" from the context menu), or enable fully automatic download (by enabling the same option in the File Selector main menu).

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added fast-change buttons to the Palette Editor interface.
    * Added box art downloader that searches and downloads game box images.
    * Gameplay saved back to DropBox after you are done playing.
    * Made decorative backdrop optional (see "General | Show Portrait Backdrop").
    * You can now supply your own backdrop in /sdcard/VGB/Backdrop.png.
    * Added "Download Box Art" option to the File Selector menus.
    * Gallery now shows box art, as well as screenshots.

    Have fun!

    Cool VGB-Android Release Announcements

    Hello, All!

    In VGB-Android 4.2.7, released today, I started improving the save/restore functionality, the way users asked me to:

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

    The new release lets you assign custom keys for the Freeze, Restore, and Replay functions. So, if you have got a gamepad with many extra keys, you now have something to do with them in VGB. Also, some users complained that it is really easy to overwrite a saved state by mistake. To fix that, the new VGB comes with the "Confirm Freezing State" option. When enabled, it requires you to click the "Freeze" button twice to save state.

    Finally, ZIP files should now work for people with Kitkat devices, while Xperia Play owners will appreciate the ability to assign functions to their "O" button.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added custom key assignments for freezing, restoring, and replaying gameplay.
    * Added "General | Confirm Freezing State" option for people who tend hitting "Freeze" by mistake.
    * Fixed support for .ZIP files stored on Kitkat SD cards.
    * Now allowing to remap the "O" button on Xperia Play gamepad.
    * The "REWIND" hardware key now replays recent gameplay.
    * The "RECORD" hardware key now freezes gameplay state.
    * The "PLAY" hardware key now restores gameplay state.
    * No longer showing box art for .ZIP files, as we cannot identify them.
    * Moved "Screen Orientation" option to the "Video" tab.
    * Reordered items in the "Video" tab.

    Enjoy!

    Cool VGB-Android Release Announcements

    Hello, All!

    The next VGB-Android 4.2.8 release is up on the Google Play:

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

    I have added what should be the one-click support for Wiimote controllers. Simply check the "Input | Wiimote Support" option and Wiimote should work. If it does not, email me. Also, the BACK button found on many gamepads should be fully functional and assignable now.

    Starting with this release, I am no longer disabling VGB when you have LuckyPatcher installed. Many people complained about this limitation, so I removed it. Please, do not use this as an excuse to pirate VGB - help me developing it by getting yourself a legal copy

    Finally, I have had a chance to test VGB on a real x86-based Android device, Dell Venue 8. After I have found and fixed a slight problem with scanline effects, it runs perfectly, smoother than on most ARM devices.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added "Input | Wiimote Support" option for easy and painless Wiimote support.
    * LuckyPatcher use now accepted, by public demand, but you will see a warning.
    * Gamepad BACK button fully usable and assignable.
    * Fixed scanline effects on x86-based Android devices.
    * Tested VGB on a real x86-based Android device (Dell Venue 8).
    * Fixed crashes when downloading DropBox files.
    * Fixed crash when setting backdrop location.
    * No longer showing box art for .ZIP files, as we cannot identify them.
    * Moved "Keep Screen On" to the "Video" tab.
    * Fixed some Russian translations.

    Have fun!

    Wink VGB-Android Release Announcements

    Hello, All!

    Starting week with a fresh VGB-Android 4.3 release:

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

    In this release, I am replacing the old and clunky Layout Editor with the new Joystick Editor, letting you independently resize buttons. The new editor also shows screen edges each button sticks to and the button labels (something that has been sorely lacking from the old Layout Editor). All virtual joystick size, shape, and opacity settings have been moved from the Settings dialog to the Joystick Editor.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Now showing current key assignments in "Assign Keys".
    * Replaced "Edit Layout" option with "Edit Virtual Joystick".
    * Buttons can be individually resized in Joystick Editor.
    * Added scale, shape, and transparency options to Joystick Editor.
    * Added gravity indication with dotted lines to Joystick Editor.
    * Added button labels to Joystick Editor.
    * Removed separate joystick size, shape, and opacity settings.
    * Reordered items in the "Input" tab.

    Have fun!
