    Hello, All!

    I have released fMSX 4.9.3 for Android today, 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
    http://garageresearch.aptoide.com/ -- on Aptoide
    http://android.oms.apps.opera.com/en...ndor_id=199556 -- in Opera Store

    This release fixes a bunch of intermittent crashes reported by the newly vigilant Google Play Developer Console. I have also improved compatibility with some misbehaving gamepads that map directional axis to trigger buttons. Finally, addressing user requests, fMSX no longer requires READ_PHONE_STATE permission. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Eliminated false directional events from analog gamepads (XBox360).
    * No longer asking for READ_PHONE_STATE permission in fMSX-Deluxe.
    * Application will use AndroidID rather than IMEI to identify users.
    * When emailing for support, attach your AndroidID (dial "*#*#8255#*#*").
    * 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.

    Have fun!

    Hello, All!

    I have just published fMSX 5.0 binaries for Windows and Linux, as well as fMSX 5.0 source code for you to look at:

    http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX -- fMSX homepage
    http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX50-Windows-bin.zip -- free Windows version
    http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX50-Ubuntu-x86-bin.tgz -- free Linux version

    This release improves sound rendering precision, updating sound every 8 scanlines, rather than every frame. The Windows version adds support for DirectInput joysticks and fixes a crash when changing the audio rate. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Switched to microseconds in the AY8910 PSG emulation.
    * Now updating, rendering, and playing sound every 8 scanlines.
    * The PLAY "S8M90O6G" MML test works now.
    * Added support for DirectInput joysticks to fMSX-Windows.
    * Fixed crash when changing audio sampling rate in fMSX-Windows.

    Enjoy!

    Hello, All!

    I updated fMSX for Android to version 5.0 today:

    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
    http://garageresearch.aptoide.com/ -- on Aptoide
    http://android.oms.apps.opera.com/en...ndor_id=199556 -- in Opera Store

    This version adds the same features introduced in fMSX 5.0 for Windows and Linux, released earlier this week. The sound updates now happen every eight scanlines, so that the PSG envelope effects become much more accurate. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Released free fMSX 5.0 for Windows and Linux.
    * Switched to microseconds in the AY8910 PSG emulation.
    * Now updating, rendering, and playing sound every 8 scanlines.
    * The PLAY "S8M90O6G" MML test works now.

    Enjoy!

    Hello, All!

    The new fMSX 5.0.1 for Android 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
    http://garageresearch.aptoide.com/ -- on Aptoide
    http://android.oms.apps.opera.com/en...ndor_id=199556 -- in Opera Store

    Since Android 7+, Google started preventing apps from listing files in system folders, including the root folder. The new fMSX will refuse to go into denied folders, rather than present you with the empty file list. If you need to quickly jump to a different folder, use the new "Change Folder" option in the File Selector. I have also fixed a bunch of crashes reported in the Google Play console. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added "Change Folder" option to the File Selector.
    * Fixed File Selector getting stuck at unreadable folders.
    * Fixed several crashes reported in Google Play console.
    * Fixed native crash when processing initial commands sent by Java side.
    * Fixed crash when loading an invalid skin bitmap file.
    * Hopefully fixed a crash in the native startup code.
    * Hopefully fixed two native crashes when drawing screen.
    * Fixed the order of calls in onPause() / onStop() / onDestroy().

    Have fun!

    Hello, All!

    The fMSX 5.1 for Android, a new release of my MSX emulator, is now available:

    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
    http://garageresearch.aptoide.com/ -- on Aptoide
    http://android.oms.apps.opera.com/en...ndor_id=199556 -- in Opera Store

    This release finally makes emulation settings (such as MSX model) persistent. Whatever you configure in the "Settings | Emulation" will now stay on for the following app launches. Please, be aware that this also makes things easier to mess up, so be careful with these settings.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Made MSX machine model and other emulation options persistent.
    * Reenabled ability to navigate through unreadable folders, unless it is root folder.
    * Made folder listing error a bit less threatening, since it has become the new normal in Android 7+.
    * Fixed hangup on exit where Java code waits for non-existent native thread.
    * Removed outdated features from the EMULib code.

    Enjoy!

    Hello, All!

    I have just released fMSX 5.1, a new version of my MSX, MSX2, and MSX2+ home computer emulator for Windows and Linux. There is also the source code release for those compiling fMSX for other platforms:

    http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX -- home page
    http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX51-Windows-bin.zip -- Windows binary
    http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX51-Ubuntu-x86-bin.tgz -- Ubuntu Linux binary
    http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX51.zip -- portable source code

    This release mainly improves platform-specific features. The fMSX-Windows adds support for multiple monitors, fixes disappearing window and flicker that occurred on Win10. The fMSX-Linux switches from the old OSS audio API to PulseAudio, so the sound should now work for you without having to use OSS audio emulation. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added multiple monitor support to fMSX-Windows.
    * Fixed disappearing window in fMSX-Windows.
    * Fixed best full-screen mode detection in fMSX-Windows.
    * Fixed window flicker that appeared after recent Win10 updates.
    * Moved disk and cartridge options to "Hardware" menu in fMSX-Windows.
    * Switched fMSX-Linux to using PulseAudio sound.
    * Updated old PulseAudio driver for 64bit Linux.

    Enjoy!

    Hello, All!

    fMSX 5.1.1 for Android is now online and ready for you to try:

    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
    http://garageresearch.aptoide.com/ -- on Aptoide
    http://android.oms.apps.opera.com/en...ndor_id=199556 -- in Opera Store

    This version improves Joystick Layout Editor, fixing a bunch of bugs and making both screen and keyboard rectangles freely resizable in both dimensions. Do keep in mind that even though you can make screen rectangle as tall as you want, the MSX screen still has fixed ratio, so it will occupy the top part of your rectangle. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Released free fMSX 5.1 for Windows and Linux.
    * Greatly improved the Layout Editor, fixing many bugs.
    * Layout Editor now lets you resize screen and keyboard in both dimensions.
    * Screen and keyboard rectangles will stay centered while resizing.
    * Buttons gravity will be restored when resetting layout.
    * Made states/screenshots deletion more reliable.

    Have fun!

    Hello, All!

    I am rolling out fMSX-Android 5.1.2 this morning. You can find it on Google Play or in other app stores:

    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
    http://garageresearch.aptoide.com/ -- on Aptoide
    http://android.oms.apps.opera.com/en...ndor_id=199556 -- in Opera Store

    This release fixes DropBox support, broken since DropBox changed their API. Other parts of the DropBox integration code were improved as well. Finally, I have fixed situation where a save file would "stick" in the backup folder (/sdcard/fMSX) and override newer saves. This issue should be gone now. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Fixed issue with backup save file being chosen over the normal one.
    * Switched to DropBox APIv2. DropBox support works again.
    * Use "Settings | General | Reset All Settings" to remove old DropBox token.
    * Fixed upload dates on the DropBox files.
    * Made DropBox worker queue more reliable.
    * Renamed DropBox authorization activity.
    * Fixed a few other bugs in the DropBox code.

    Enjoy!
