    * Added SAA1099 amplitude envelopes.
    * Added SAA1099 noise frequency settings.

I have also removed video artifacts at the screen edges and fixed the auto-load function when running software from the World of Spectrum. Finally, there is now fancy background in the portrait mode. I hope you like it

    Cool Speccy Release News

    Hello, All!

    Speccy-Android 3.0.4, my Sinclair ZX Spectrum emulator, is now available at Google Play:

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

    Among other things, this release adds slow-motion mode, fixes multitouch input wherever it failed to work, and removes scanline effects interference with Debugger and Advanced Settings. Furthermore, for those Kitkat users who got their external SD cards disabled, I have added a workaround that lets you store your Spectrum files on these SD cards. All saves will then go to /sdcard/Speccy, or Speccy's private directory on the SD card. See below for the complete list of changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Added slow-motion mode, combined with fast-forward mode.
    * Fixed multitouch input in cases where it didn't work.
    * Fixed scanline effects in Debugger, etc.
    * Made a work-around for external SD card use on KitKat!
    * If can't write to external SD card, saving states to /storage/sdcard0/Speccy.
    * If Speccy folder doesn't exist, saving states to /storage/sdcard1/Android/data/com.fms.speccy/files.
    * Fixed screen decorations covering ZX Spectrum screen with OpenGLES disabled.
    * Fixed sections navigation in the File Selector.
    * Fixed recognition of multiple file extensions.

    Hello, All!

    Speccy-Android, my Sinclair ZX Spectrum emulator, has been updated to version 3.2:

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

    In this release, I have replaced the old Layout Editor with the new and shining Joystick Editor that lets you individually resize buttons, change screen location and size. Note that there are separate screen frames for landscape and portrait modes.

    The new Speccy also shows current button assignments in the "Assign Keys" dialog and adds the new "Ignore Fake KeyUp Events" option for people whose Bluetooth keyboards cannot properly send KeyUp events. If your keyboard refuses to work, try this option and see what happens.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Replaced "Edit Layout" option with "Edit Virtual Joystick".
    * Added "Input | Ignore Fake KeyUp Events" option to make misbehaving keyboards work.
    * Now showing current key assignments in "Assign Keys".
    * Buttons can be individually resized in the Joystick Editor.
    * Display can be resized and positioned in the Joystick Editor.
    * Added scale, shape, and transparency options to the Joystick Editor.
    * Added gravity indication with dotted lines to the Joystick Editor.
    * Added backdrop image to the Joystick Editor.
    * Added button labels to the Joystick Editor.
    * Removed separate joystick size, shape, and opacity settings.
    * Removed some outdated code that is no longer relevant.
    * Reordered items in the "Input" tab.

    Enjoy!
