    Hello, All!

    MasterGear 4.4 for Android is now available from Google Play:

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

    This release fixes possible crash when running SG-1000 or SC-3000 software, by truncating all VRAM addresses to 16kB VRAM size. Apple computer users will find the new option to hide dot-files created when transferring content from MacOS. Another new option makes the app save all files to /sdcard/MG folder. This includes gameplay states, screenshots, palettes, etc. See below for all the options.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Synchronized version number with Windows/Linux releases.
    * Now truncating all VRAM table addresses to 16kB boundary.
    * Fixed accidental crashes when running SC-3000 programs.
    * Added "Settings | General | Hide Dot Files" option.
    * Enable hiding dot-files to ignore system files created by MacOS.
    * Added "Settings | General | Prefer App Folder" option.
    * Enable app folder preference to save new files to the application folder.
    * Fixed "Completely Delete File" menu option.

    PS: In somewhat related news, following emulators are on sale this week:

    ColEm Deluxe for $1.99: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...s.colem.deluxe
    AlmostTI for $2.99: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...id=com.fms.ati

    This release fixes a random crash when running SG-1000 and SC-3000 software. All VDP table addresses are now truncated to 16kB VRAM address space when running in SG-1000 mode. I have also rearranged Windows menus a little bit. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Now truncating all VRAM table addresses to 16kB boundary.
    * Fixed accidental crashes when running SC-3000 programs.

    Hello, All!

    I have published MasterGear 4.5 for Android, a new version of my Sega MasterSystem, GameGear, SG-1000, and SC-3000 emulator:

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

    This version includes native support for 64bit ARM CPUs. Unfortunately, I had to disable Cheatopedia, Cheat Editor, and Cheat Hunter features, since Google Play no longer allows them and bans any apps that come with game cheating features. You can reenable these features yourself, by downloading this file and unzipping it to the "/sdcard/MasterGear" folder:

    http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/MG-Cheats-031219.zip

    See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added native build for 64bit ARMv8 CPUs.
    * Had to remove the cheats, since Google Play no longer allows them and bans apps containing cheats.
    * Please, go and see the help page for information on how to reenable cheats.
    * Switched to Gradle build.

    Hello, All!

    I've published MasterGear 4.5.2 for Android, a new release of my Sega MasterSystem, GameGear, and SG-1000 emulator:

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

    The new release adds native support for 64bit ARM CPUs and fixes several bugs. Starting with this release, you can place Cheatopedia files into any subfolder of /sdcard/MasterGear. That should hopefully help people unable to move unzipped files around. Finally, swiping your finger sideways along the top or bottom screen edge will reveal the action bar. This new gesture is added to avoid clashing with the vertical swipe that reveals navigation bars in new Androids. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Now able to show action bar with horizontal flings at screen top/bottom.
    * Now searching for ROOT.chts in /sdcard/MasterGear and all its subfolders.
    * Enabled native build for 64bit ARMv8 CPUs.
    * Fixed saved state compatibility between 32bit and 64bit architectures.
    * Fixed native OpenSLES sound on newer Androids.
    * Fixed a possible crash in Java code.
    * Fixed toolbar application links.

    Enjoy!

    Hello, All!

    I have published MasterGear 4.5.3, a new version of my universal Sega MasterSystem, GameGear, and SG-1000 emulator:

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

    MasterGear is currently on sale for $2.99 and will stay this way for another few days. This release fixes tilt joystick operation and switches to Android Pie SDK. Also, pressing the BACK button once will now reveal the action bar.

    To remind everyone, I had to remove cheats from the app since Google Play started banning any apps which even mention cheats. Starting with this MasterGear release, all you need to get cheats back is download this file into your "Downloads" folder:

    http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/MasterGear-Cheats.zip

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Automatically unzipping MasterGear-Cheats.zip, if found in Downloads.
    * Now showing action bar when the BACK button is pressed once.
    * Fixed saving files to /sdcard/MasterGear when current folder not writable.
    * Fixed tilt joystick operation.
    * Fixed screen rotation after disabling the tilt joystick.
    * Switched to Android Pie SDK (Android-28).
    * Fixed State Exchange and box art downloads on newer Androids.
    * Fixed crashes due to missing libraries on Android Pie.
    * Oldest supported OS is now Android-9 (Gingerbread).

    Enjoy!

    Hello, All!

    I have just published MasterGear 4.6, emulating Sega MasterSystem, GameGear, SG-1000, and SC-3000 on Android:

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

    This release introduces the completely new, modern interface for AndroidTV users. The new UI is based on the Leanback library, as suggested by Google. If you experience any problems with it, or miss any features, please, do not hesitate to email me.

    In other news, I've fixed gamepad button assignment problems and made box art show up immediately as it gets downloaded. Also, there is now native support for 64bit Intel CPUs. As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning MasterGear from the store. You can easily reenable cheats though by downloading this file to your Downloads folder:

    http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/MasterGear-Cheats.zip

    See below for all the changes in this release.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added completely new, modern AndroidTV interface.
    * Please, email me if you encounter any issues with the new AndroidTV UI.
    * Fixed gamepad button assignments.
    * Completely refactored File Selector code.
    * Made box art show immediately after download.
    * Now properly wiping current screenshot when box art downloaded.
    * Added 5ms and 10ms tactile feedback options.
    * Added native 64bit Intel support.

    Enjoy!

    Hello, All!

    MasterGear 4.6.2 for Android, a new version of my Sega MasterSystem and GameGear emulator, is now available:

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

    This release makes virtual buttons appear the same way on all devices, in all screen resolutions. If you had to tweak your buttons, use "Settings | Input | Edit Joystick Layout" option to tweak them back as necessary. I have also switched to the latest AndroidX and Firebase APIs from Google, so the app now requires Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) or newer. Whoever is still using Android Gingerbread, people, you really have to upgrade already. As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning MasterGear from the store. You can easily reenable cheats though by downloading this file to your Downloads folder:

    http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/MasterGear-Cheats.zip

    See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Virtual buttons now have same size on all devices.
    * App now requires Android 4.1+ (Jelly Bean) to run.
    * Changed Apache HTTP library linkage.
    * Switched to "androidx.leanback.*" APIs.
    * Switched to Firebase for reporting.
    * Switched to Gradle 5.6.

    PS: AlmostTI, my TI graphing calc emulator, is currently on $2.99 sale at Google Play:

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

    Have fun!
