    Wink VGB-Android 3.6.1 Released

    Hello, All!

    I have released VGB-Android 3.6.1, the new version of GameBoy Classic, GameBoy Color, and Super GameBoy emulator for Android devices:

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

    As a temporary promotion, I am lowering the VGB-Android price to $2.49 or 1.99 euros. Unfortunately, at this price VGB brings home less than what it costs me to support users, so I will not be able to keep this price forever. So, get VGB while it's cheap

    Here is the list of new features and fixes in this version:

    * The action bar can now be toggled with a vertical fling gesture.
    * Added screenshots, autosaved state, and two more slots to the Freeze/Restore.
    * Cheatopedia now remembers the last open entry and recognizes the current game.
    * Made Cheat Editor save cheats reliably.
    * Optimized screen updates sync, for better framerates.
    * Now pausing gameplay immediately when opening Android menu.
    * Cleaned up handling of Android physical keys.
    * Fixed cut-off landscape display on Nexus7 and other tablets.
    * Fixed HBlank DMA transfer (Pokemon Crystal).
    * Fixed initial LCDCONT state in (Shadowgate Classic).
    * File selector now memorizes the last selected position.
    * Fixed Pokemon Silver Cheatopedia entry.
    * Added Italian translation.

    Cool Re: VGB-Android Release Announcements

    Published VGB-Android 3.6.5 tonight:

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

    This version comes with all the improvements introduced into VGBA, iNES, and MasterGear over the last couple of weeks. It has got faster video, better file selector, and supports .IPS patches. With the new VGB, you should be able to use a wide variety of game translations that can be found here:

    http://www.romhacking.net/?page=translations&platform=8

    FULL LIST OF CHANGES:
    * Added support for .IPS files. For "mygame.gb" use "mygame.ips".
    * Switched to surfaces and optimized Java-to-native sync for faster and smoother video.
    * Now disabling cheats on startup.
    * Made overlaid buttons have solid cues and stick to nearest screen edges.
    * Fixed legacy wire-frame joystick display.
    * Fixed a few bugs in the license verification code.
    * Made file selector load directory listings faster.
    * Added labels for CHT/SAV/IPS files to the file selector.

    Wink VGB-Android Release Announcements

    With the VGB 3.6.6 release today, I am starting to introduce the automatic frame skipping feature:

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

    This feature can be enabled under the "Frames to Draw" option in the Settings. It makes VGB draw as many frames as your hardware allows, so the game play becomes very smooth on the faster hardware, while retaining speed on the slower hardware.

    Having said that, the automatic frame skipping may not be perfect yet. I hope the existing VGB-Android users will provide feedback and help me debug it to perfection.

    FULL CHANGE LIST:
    * Added automatic frame skip control (under "Frames to Draw" option).
    * Made display updates even faster by skipping unchanged areas.
    * Made directional joypad easier to control.
    * Fixed tactile feedback feature.
    * Now you can enable multiple cheats at once.

    Red face VGB-Android Release Announcements

    Hello, All!

    Finishing this week with the VGB-Android 3.6.7 release:

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

    The main addition is the ability to upload your gameplay state to a server and download states uploaded by other users. Please note that a state is your position inside a game, not the actual game.

    I have also added the resizable virtual joystick, removed the thin garbage lines that appeared on some devices in the accelerated video mode, and made a few fixes to the way VGB applies cheat codes to a patched game (i.e. when .ips file present).

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added State Exchange feature letting users exchange their gameplay states.
    * Made virtual controls resizable via "Virtual Joystick Size" option.
    * Removed garbage at screen edges in accelerated OpenGLES mode.
    * Minor fix for cheats/patch interaction.

    The GameLink emulation lets users play with each other over a local network or the Internet, as if their emulated "GameBoys" were connected with a real GameLink cable. To establish connection, use the "Connect NetPlay" option in the Android menu.

    * Added GameLink emulation letting users play with each other over the network.
    * Now showing the "NEW" label only for files that have recently changed.
