    Hello, All!

    The free fMSX 5.8 Windows and Linux binaries, as well as portable source code, are now available for download:

    http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/ -- homepage
    http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX58-Windows-bin.zip --Windows binary
    http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX58-Ubuntu-x86-bin.tgz -- Linux binary
    http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX58.zip -- portable source code

    This version fixes SHA1 checksum computation used to recognize ROM mapper types. I have also updated CARTS.SHA database with correct mapper types for a few ROMs. The scaling and special effects infrastructure has been majorly refactored. The new scaling code is optimized for larger screens and better supports multiple monitors. It adds explicit linear scaling option on Windows. Finally, tape images will now open as read-only if they cannot be opened for writing.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Will try opening tapes as read-only, if read-and-append fails.
    * System ROM files location now defaults to where executable is.
    * Fixed SHA1 computation when guessing MegaROM mapper type.
    * ASCII16 mapper now preferred over ASCII8 when guess MegaROM type.
    * Changed R-Type mapper type to ASCII16.
    * Changed DragonQuest 1 mapper type to GENERIC8.
    * Changed Animal mapper type to GENERIC8.
    * Changed T&E Soft Ashguine mapper type to GENERIC8.
    * Changed Royal Blood mapper type to ASCII8.
    * Refactored scaling and special effects framework.
    * Optimized scaling for large screens and windows.
    * Fixed fMSX-Windows behavior with multiple displays.
    * Added tape option to "File | Open" dialog in fMSX-Windows.
    * Added "Video | Interpolate Video | Linear Scaling" option to fMSX-Windows.
    * Enabled "Video | Stretch Full Screen" option with effects enabled.
    * Enabled "Video | Force 4:3 Screen" option with effects enabled.

    Have fun!

    PS: If you like fMSX, please, consider buying the complete version of fMSX for Android. It is on $2.99 sale this week:

    The free Speccy 5.3 for Windows and Linux is now available for download:

    http://fms.komkon.org/Speccy/ -- homepage
    http://fms.komkon.org/Speccy/Speccy53-Windows-bin.zip -- Windows binary
    http://fms.komkon.org/Speccy/Speccy5...tu-x86-bin.tgz -- Linux binary

    This version fixes window resizing and positioning on Windows and improves special effects and scaling infrastructure, especially on large screens. On Windows, there is now a separate "linear interpolation" scaling option and a menu action to clear all settings. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Refactored scaling and special effects framework.
    * Optimized scaling for large screens and windows.
    * Fixed Speccy-Windows behavior with multiple displays.
    * Added "Video | Interpolate Video | Linear Scaling" option to Speccy-Windows.
    * Enabled "Video | Stretch Full Screen" option with effects enabled.
    * Enabled "Video | Force 4:3 Screen" option with effects enabled.
    * Added "File | Clear Settings and Quit" option to Speccy-Windows.
    * Fixed small windows behavior in Speccy-Windows.
    * Fixed window position behavior in Speccy-Windows.

    Have fun!

    Hello, All!

    fMSX 5.8 for Android, a new version of my MSX and MSX2 emulator, is now online:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...d=com.fms.fmsx -- free version
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ms.fmsx.deluxe -- full version (on sale this week)

    fMSX Deluxe, the complete version of fMSX, is on $2.99 sale this week at Google Play. The new release is based on the latest fMSX 5.8 sources published earlier. It should now open tape images from read-only storage. Also, there is a new explicit linear interpolation scaling option. As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning fMSX from the store. You can easily reenable cheats though by downloading this file to your Downloads folder:

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

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Based on latest fMSX 5.8 for Windows and Linux sources.
    * Will try opening tapes as read-only, if read-and-append fails.
    * Refactored scaling and special effects framework.
    * Added separate option for linear image interpolation.

    Enjoy!

    Hello, All!

    I've just published fMSX 5.9 for Android, a new version of my MSX, MSX2, and MSX2+ emulator:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...d=com.fms.fmsx -- free version
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ms.fmsx.deluxe -- full version
    https://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/ -- homepage

    Starting this November, Google no longer allows Android apps to access files on Android10+ devices, outside app's sandbox. All storage access is now supposed to be done via something called "Storage Access Framework".

    I had to make major changes to fMSX in order to comply with the new regulations. If you have a newer Android10+, you will see the list of storage volumes in the File Selector. Once you click on a volume, the app may ask you for permission to access it. Otherwise, things should work the same as before. If you find any new problems with the app though, please, report them to the support group or email me directly. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Refactored app to comply with Google's latest ban on file I/O.
    * On Android 10+, all file access is now done via content providers.
    * Content is copied to a temporary folder for use, changes moved back on exit.
    * You may have to give app separate permission to read each storage location.

    Enjoy!

    http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/ -- homepage
    http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX59-Windows-bin.zip --Windows binary

    http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX59.zip -- portable source code

    This adds a simple CPU-based linear interpolation algorithm, used when GPU-based interpolation cannot be used for some reason. The Windows version adds drag'n'drop and fixes ability to open disk and tape images by clicking on them in File Explorer. The Linux version adds a new "-linear" command line option. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added simple CPU-based linear scaling algorithm.
    * Added "-linear" command line option.
    * Added drag'n'drop files functionality to fMSX-Windows.
    * Fixed fMSX-Windows loading disk and tape files on click.

    Have fun!

    Hello, All!

    I've released fMSX 5.9.1 for Android, a new version of my MSX, MSX2, and MSX2+ emulator:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...d=com.fms.fmsx -- free version
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ms.fmsx.deluxe -- full version
    https://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/ -- homepage

    This release is based on fMSX 5.9 for Windows and Linux, released last week. I have fixed several crash sources that popped up after refactoring the app. I have also fixed handling of file names with spaces and parentheses. Finally, the "Change Folder" dialog should work normally once again.

    As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning fMSX from the store. You can easily reenable cheats though by downloading this file to your Downloads folder:

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

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Based on fMSX 5.9 for Windows and Linux.
    * Fixed several crash sources that popped up after refactoring.
    * Fixed handling of spaces and parentheses in "content://" URIs.
    * Fixed list of volumes in "Change Folder" dialog.
    * Fixed "Change Folder" functionality.

    Enjoy!

    Hello, All!

    I've published fMSX 5.9.2 for Android, a new version of my MSX, MSX2, and MSX2+ emulator:

    This release restores compatibility with older Android 4.2/4.3 devices, fixes opening MSX files from other apps (such as file managers) and adds the ability to create home screen shortcuts on newer devices. A few possible crash sources have also been fixed.

    As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning fMSX from the store. You can easily reenable cheats though by downloading this file to your Downloads folder:
