    Hello, All!

    MasterGear 3.6.11, a new version of my Sega MasterSystem and GameGear emulator for Android published today, rolls out changes previously introduced in my other emulators:

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

    I have fixed several special effects filters on devices with low-precision 3D hardware and removed tiny text cues from gamepad skins that have their own cues.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Fixed CMY/RGB filter shaders on low-end GPUs (Mali-400).
    * Fixed scanline simulation shaders on low-end GPUs (Mali-400).

    Hello, All!

    MasterGear 3.7 for Android is now online:

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

    For this release, I have added support for "content://" URIs, so MasterGear should now work with more third-party apps, such as email clients and file managers. Among other things, compatibility with the latest Astro File Manager has been restored. I have also refactored quite a lot of code, including the virtual buttons implementation and the utilities for obtaining extended info from ROM files. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Fixed support for opening SMS/GG files from Astro File Manager.
    * Added support for opening "content://" URIs.
    * Refactored file type definitions in the manifest.
    * Refactored EMULib library code.
    * Moved virtual buttons implementation into OvrButton class.
    * Moved file-specific utilities into FileInfo class.

    Have fun!

    Hello, All!

    I have published MasterGear 4.0 for Android, the next major release of my Sega MasterSystem, GameGear, and SG-1000 emulator:

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

    This release adds support for the SMS2 console (aka Mark IV Jr) and its extended screen modes. GameGear compatibility improved as well, since some GameGear games use the same extended screen modes. I have also enabled EEPROM emulation in two more GameGear titles and fixed sprites in Madou Monogatari 2. Finally, by public request, MasterGear will no longer ask for the READ_PHONE_STATE permission, previously used to obtain the IMEI. I have now switched from IMEI to AndroidID, in case you need help and I have to identify your device in the logs. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added "Emulation | Model | MasterSystem 2" options.
    * MasterSystem 2 is now the default hardware model.
    * Implemented proper 224/240-line screen modes.
    * Fixed Linus Spacehead (GG) flicker and offset screen.
    * Fixed StarTrek Next Generation (GG) offset screen.
    * Fixed Micro Machines (SMS/GG) scrolling problems.
    * Fixed Madou Monogatari 2 (GG) by setting VDP[6]=0xFF on reset.
    * Fixed missing "TM" letters in many title screens.
    * Fixed World Series Baseball '95 (GG) hangup due to missing EEPROM.
    * Fixed World Series Baseball (GG) hangup due to missing EEPROM.
    * No longer asking for READ_PHONE_STATE permission.
    * Application will use AndroidID rather than IMEI to identify users.
    * When emailing for support, attach your AndroidID (dial "*#*#8255#*#*").

    Enjoy!

    Hello, All!

    MasterGear 4.0.1 for Android, a new version of my Sega MasterSystem, GameGear, and SG-1000 emulator, is currently online and ready to download:

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

    This release fixes a bunch of rare crashes reported by the new and improved Google Play Console. I have also improved support for certain gamepads that report trigger buttons as a directional axis. When emulator detects such a fake "axis" it automatically ignores it. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Eliminated false directional events from analog gamepads (XBox360).
    * Fixed multiple crashes reported by the new Google Play Console.
    * Fixed crashes when showing or dismissing progress dialog in the File Selector.
    * Fixed crash when blitting image to screen while exiting.
    * Fixed crash when starting a game from the Gallery on Android Nougat.
    * Fixed crash when exiting Palette Editor on Android Nougat.
    * Hopefully fixed rare crash in the File Selector onCreate().
    * Hopefully fixed rare crash in Palette Editor RGB dialog.

    Enjoy!

    Hello, All!

    I have published MasterGear 4.0.2 for Android today, a new version of my Sega MasterSystem, GameGear, and SG-1000 emulator:

    * Hopefully fixed a crash in the native startup code.

    Hello, All!

    The new MasterGear 4.0.3 for Android is now online:

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

    This release fixes a bug where the File Selector would get stuck on unreadable folders, not letting the user switch away from them. This version will not let you go into unreadable folders. If you need to quickly jump between folders (such as internal and external storage), use the new "Change Folder" option in the File Selector. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added "Change Folder" option to the File Selector for jumping between folders.
    * Fixed File Selector getting stuck at unreadable folders.
    * Made folder listing error a bit less threatening, since it has become the new normal in Android 7+.
    * Fixed native crash when processing initial commands sent by Java side.
    * Fixed crash when loading an invalid skin bitmap file.
    * Fixed minor bug with YM2413 drum channels when loading state.

    Enjoy!

    Hello, All!

    MasterGear 4.1 for Android is now online:

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

    This release majorly improves automatic hardware and language detection and adds correct video timings for both NTSC and PAL modes. I have also did some work on the Joystick Layout Editor, fixing a bunch of bugs and making display rectangle freely resizable in both dimensions. Do keep in mind though that since the console screen has a certain ratio, it may not necessarily fill the rectangle you choose. The screen will always "stick" to the top of the rectangle. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Console model and other hardware options will now be saved.
    * Greatly improved automatic hardware and language detection.
    * Fixed video timings for both NTSC and PAL modes.
    * Fixed scanline length to 228 CPU clocks.
    * Fixed NTSC/PAL screen length to 262/313 scanlines.
    * Fixed music speed in Sonic Chaos (GG).
    * Greatly improved the Layout Editor, fixing many bugs.
    * Layout Editor now lets you resize screen in both dimensions.
    * Screen rectangle will stay centered while resizing.
    * Buttons gravity will be restored when resetting layout.
    * Made states/screenshots deletion more reliable.
    * Fixed hangup on exit where Java code waits for non-existent native thread.
    * Removed outdated features from the EMULib code.

    Enjoy!
