    Hello, All!

    The free Speccy 5.5 for Windows and Linux is now available for download:

    http://fms.komkon.org/Speccy/ -- homepage
    http://fms.komkon.org/Speccy/Speccy55-Windows-bin.zip --Windows binary
    http://fms.komkon.org/Speccy/Speccy5...tu-x86-bin.tgz -- Linux binary

    This version adds proper emulation for Sam Coupe MODE3 display, support for more disk formats, fixes SAA1099 PSG sound and Sam Coupe light pen port. I have also added a simple CPU-based linear interpolation scaler, for cases where GPU-based interpolation is unfeasible. Finally, there is a bunch of other fixes and improvements. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added proper Sam Coupe screen mode #3 display.
    * Added handling of cases where .SAD disk image has .DSK extension.
    * Added internal menu options for saving .SAD disk images.
    * Added support for more raw disk image formats.
    * Added simple CPU-based linear scaling algorithm.
    * Added "-linear" command line option.
    * Now disabling all trapdoor-based devices in Sam Coupe mode.
    * Fixed reset when replacing disk image with LoadFile().
    * Fixed auto-loading disk images in Spectrum +3 mode.
    * Fixed palette updates when rewinding in Sam Coupe mode.
    * Fixed light pen port, assuming no light pen for now.
    * Fixed SAA1099 PSG sound.
    * Added Speccy-Windows options for saving .SAD disk images.

    Have fun!

    Hello, All!

    I have published Speccy 5.5 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
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....speccy.deluxe -- full version

    This version is based on the latest Speccy 5.5 for Windows and Linux, released earlier this week. It adds proper support for Sam Coupe's 512x192 MODE3 screen, more disk formats, and internal menu options to work with these formats. There are also multiple emulation fixes for Spectrum +3 and Sam Coupe modes.

    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 week's release.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Based on latest Speccy 5.5 for Windows and Linux sources.
    * Added proper Sam Coupe screen mode #3 display.
    * Added support for more raw disk image formats.
    * Added handling of cases where .SAD disk image has .DSK extension.
    * Added internal menu options for saving .SAD disk images.
    * Added simple CPU-based linear scaling algorithm.
    * Fixed reset when replacing disk image with LoadFile().
    * Now disabling all trapdoor-based devices in Sam Coupe mode.
    * Fixed auto-loading disk images in Spectrum +3 mode.

    Hello, All!

    I have released Speccy 5.6, a new version of my Sinclair ZX Spectrum and Sam Coupe emulator for 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 is based on the latest Speccy 5.6 for Windows and Linux, published last week. It fixes issues with loading some .TRD and .Z80 files.

    Since Google no longer allows apps to access file system on Android10+ devices, the new Speccy will now access files via "content providers" on these devices. You may have to give the app permission to access your storage. Please, report any found problems to the support group or email me directly about them:

    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:
    * Based on latest Speccy 5.6 for Windows and Linux sources.
    * Fixed some .Z80 files not loading due to missing Interface I ROM.
    * Fixed problem loading truncated .TRD files.
    * 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.
    * 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.

    Merry Christmas!

    This release adds support for loading and saving Spectaculator snapshot files (.SZX). I have also enabled most command line options on Windows and added framerate display options to both Windows and Linux versions.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added initial support for Spectaculator snapshot files (.SZX).
    * Added internal menu option to save .SZX snapshots.
    * Added "File | Save .SZX Snapshot" menu option to Speccy-Windows.
    * Added "Video | Show Framerate" menu option to Speccy-Windows.
    * Most command line options should now work in Speccy-Windows.
    * Increased synchronization timer precision in Speccy-Windows.
    * Speccy-Windows will start in x2 size by default.
