    Hello, All!

    A new Speccy 5.0.4 release for Android is now available, with Speccy Deluxe still on sale for $1.99 for the next couple of days:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...com.fms.speccy -- free version
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....speccy.deluxe -- full version

    In this release, I've addressed a few user requests. Speccy can now be forced to save all its files (state saves, screenshots, etc) to the application folder in internal storage. Previously, this only happened if the original folder with the Spectrum software was not writable. Also, you can tell Speccy to hide dot-files created when transferring MacOS content to an Android device. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * 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: VGBAnext is currently on $2.99 sale at Google Play:

    Enjoy!

    Hello, All!

    I have just updated Speccy, my free Sinclair ZX Spectrum emulator for Windows and Linux, to version 5.0:

    http://fms.komkon.org/Speccy/ -- homepage
    http://fms.komkon.org/Speccy/Speccy50-Windows-bin.zip -- free Windows version
    http://fms.komkon.org/Speccy/Speccy5...tu-x86-bin.tgz -- free Linux version

    In this release, I have moved PSG sound computation to the Sync8910() function. As result, the sound now starts playing immediately after loading a .Z80 file. I have also fixed airplane sounds in Auf Wiedersehen Monty, beeper conversion to melodic audio, MIDI recording and playback. See below for all the changes:

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Moved PSG sound computation to Sync8910().
    * When loading .Z80 files, PSG sound starts playing right away.
    * Fixed airplane sounds in Auf Wiedersehen Monty.
    * Fixed beeper conversion to melodic audio.
    * Fixed MIDI playback in Speccy-Windows.
    * Minor fixes to MIDI recording.

    Finally, the latest deluxe version of Speccy for Android is currently on sale for $1.99 at the Google Play:

    Have fun!

    Do keep in mind that you will need the firmware ROM file from a real TI calculator that you own.
