    Hello, All!

    I have published Speccy 5.1.14, a new version of my Sinclair ZX Spectrum and Sam Coupe emulator on Android:

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

    This new release improves file system navigation in both File Selector and the AndroidTV file browser. As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning Speccy from the store. You can easily reenable cheats though by downloading this file to your Downloads folder:

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

    See below for all the changes in this release.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Fixed AndroidTV file browser getting stuck on unavailable folders.
    * Fixed File Selector getting stuck on unavailable folders.
    * Fixed File Selector toolbar to launch paid app versions if available.
    * AndroidTV browser will point to "Folders" row after changing folder.
    * Added a message dialog when directing users to Google Play.


    PS: In related news, VGBAnext, my universal GBA, GBC, GB, NES, and Famicom emulator, is on $2.99 sale at Google Play this week:

    Enjoy!

    Hello, All!

    I have published Speccy 5.2, a new version of my Sinclair ZX Spectrum and Sam Coupe emulator on Android:

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

    This release adds menu options to change floppy disks at runtime. Look for them in the "Disks" menu when running the emulation. As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning Speccy from the store. You can easily reenable cheats though by downloading this file to your Downloads folder:

    The main change in the Speccy 1.8.2 is the switch to using GLES-accelerated video by default. As the video has become faster, I also increased the number of frames drawn by default, so Speccy should feel much smoother now.

    For those who prefer non-accelerated video, it has also been optimized by switching to Android SurfaceViews and improving the synchronization between Java and native parts of the app.

    Finally, I have added support for the ZX128k ASCII printer, as opposed to the already supported graphics-only ZX Printer. You should now be able to do execute an "LLIST" command in the ZX128k BASIC https://cpstest.org click speed test

    FULL LIST OF CHANGES:
    * Added ZX128k printer support.
    * Enabled video acceleration and increased number of drawn frames by default.
    * Enabled SurfaceViews and optimized native thread sync for faster, smoother video.
    * Now showing button labels and keyboard with video acceleration enabled.
    * No longer deleting buttons layout on each upgrade.
    * Added fast navigation with sections to the file selector.
    * Improved the file selector UI look and feel.
    * Enlarged screenshots in the file selector and Freeze/Restore.
    Thank you so much for the new buddy!

    Hello, All!

    I have published Speccy 5.2.1, a new version of my Sinclair ZX Spectrum and Sam Coupe emulator on Android:

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

    This release fixes World Of Spectrum integration, so your WoS browser should work once again. Let me know if you are still seeing problems.

    For people with SD cards, USB drives, and other storage devices, I added a list of available storage devices to the File Selector "Change Folder" dialog. This way, you only need to click on the desired storage device there, rather than typing its path. Similar storage options can be found in the top row of the AndroidTV user interface.

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

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

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Fixed World Of Spectrum integration, browser works again.
    * Added list of available storage devices to "Change Folder" dialog.
    * Added available storage devices to the top row in AndroidTV UI.
    * Changed message indicating that Android denied a directory listing.

    Enjoy!

    I have published Speccy 5.2.2, a new version of my Sinclair ZX Spectrum and Sam Coupe emulator on Android:

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

    Since World Of Spectrum website keeps changing, the new Speccy release will take you directly to the website if it fails to parse HTML contents. I am planning to fix the WoS Browser feature once the new World Of Spectrum design stabilizes. I have also fixed a stray crash affecting people with AndroidTV devices.

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

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

    ALL CHANGES:
    * World Of Spectrum website format changed again, breaking WoS Browser. Sorry for this, working to bring the browser back.
    * As of now, WoS Browser will go directly to the website if it is unable to parse its contents.
    * Fixed a crash when getting list of storage locations on some AndroidTVs.

    Enjoy!

    Hello, All!

    I have published Speccy 5.4 for Android today, a new version of my universal Sinclair ZX Spectrum and Sam Coupe emulator:

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