    Talking MasterGear-Android Release News

    Hello, All!

    I have published MasterGear-Android 2.8.5, a new version of my Sega MasterSystem and GameGear emulator:

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

    Starting with this version, I am enabling automatic frame skip control and hardware video acceleration by default. These two features should provide everyone with the fast, smooth gameplay video. Also fixed a bunch of rather important issues (that previously broke auto frame skip) and added full support for iPega gamepads.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added support for directional pad on iPega gamepads.
    * Switched to hardware accelerated video by default, for fast video.
    * Switched to automatic frame skipping by default, for smooth video.
    * Existing users should manually enable the "Hardware Video Acceleration" option and set "Draw Frames" to "Automatic".
    * Fixed initial parameter passing to the native code.
    * Fixed automatic frame skip computation based on frame rate.
    * Added explicit "Quit" menu option, for people who cannot find BACK key.
    * No longer hiding action bar when MENU pressed, to retain access to items.
    * Ordered initial dialogs by importance (About, Change Log, Progress).
    * Added Twitter link to the change log, use it to keep track of updates.
    * Fixed a nasty crash in the Record/Replay icon display.

    Hello, All!

    This Christmas Eve, I am bringing you MasterGear-Android 2.8.13, the new version of my Sega 8bit consoles emulator:

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

    MasterGear will run software written for Sega MasterSystem, GameGear, SG-1000, SC-3000 home computer, and its SF-7000 extension. This new release lets you change the hardware model and locale (US/Japan/Europe) from the automatically determined settings. I have also taken steps to properly sync PAL hardware at 50fps, rather than 60fps used by NTSC. Those who complained about certain games running too fast, this change should fix your problem.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added "Hardware Model" screen to the Settings.
    * You can choose SMS, GG, SG-1000, SC-3000, or SF-7000 hardware.
    * Merged PAL/NTSC selection with hardware model selection.
    * Now limiting frame rate to 50fps when emulating PAL hardware.

    Happy Holidays!
