BTW Marat, re possible ADAM improvements, Geoff Oltmans has made numerous enhancements to Marcel's ADAMem v1.0 and the latest SDL release with source code is v1.81. I have v2.0beta, but still testing it after a long hiatus due to coaching baseball.

Oh, I have started with AdamEm's AdamNet code as well, using it as example for my own code. Something is still off though, since I cannot get it to work fully. Looks like AdamNet was actually a hardware + software solution, but the emulation only simulates AdamNet's software responses. Difficult to get them right.

Thanks for the response.

I am not about to argue over YOUR software as well as your troubles emulating ADAMNET without rom dumps from the devices such as the disk drives.

I am sure you will eventually figure it out.  Good luck.

Is there a way to quit a game using a keyboard on an android TV?
It expects for pressing the sticks in a pad to quit the game, but without you are stuck in the game...

Just pressing the BACK button twice should do the job. This is the standard way to exit Speccy on any "normal" Android device.

Correction: standard way to exit any of my apps, including ColEm. Have been working on a Speccy release and got carried away a bit.

Can someone explain how to set the full screen resolution?

 

It defaults to the highest my graphics card can do which is kind of blind assumption that that is what they want.

My system can handle 4k but I keep it at 1080p for a reason.

I can't find it in the menu anywhere to select full screen resolution size.

Alt-Enter

Also, under the video pull down menu there's an item Full screen mode or Stretch to full screen

Yea, I got that.
But it doesn't allow you select what resolution your full screen mode is.
It just automatically uses the highest mode your system can produce which was 4k but I don't want 4k it slows down my machine and in Windows 10 it displaces the icons and a host of crap when it returns from 4k.

 

I even looked in the save ini and there is nothing that references it.

Could it be that is just one more thing to be installed on Tuesday as they say.

 

Believe me when I say I love Marats work but beyond COLEM there isn't much else other than MESS/MAME for ADAM and his COLEM ADAM doesn't currently work.  As a matter of fact, being whiny, COLEM is annoying at times but it does play SGM games.

If I remember correctly, it is *supposed* to choose the smallest screen mode sufficient to show the Coleco screen (with special effects). It is posisble that what you get is the only screen mode DirectX reports available though. Will check what is going on.

Hello, All!

ColEm 4.6.4 for Android, a new release of my ColecoVision emulator, is now available from Google Play:

https://play.google....d=com.fms.colem-- free version
https://play.google....ms.colem.deluxe-- full version

Starting with this release, you can assign volume controls and other special keys to gamepad buttons. I also added support for diagonal directional keys Android defines since Nougat. A bunch of other button assignment issues have been fixed. Finally, I have fixed the bug where the action bar would get "stuck" after adding a Cheat Hunter watch. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Media keys can now be assigned to perform gamepad functions.
* Refactored "Settings | Input | Assign Joystick Keys" code.
* Fixed bug where button, used to close mapping dialog, was added to mappings.
* Added support for diagonal keypad buttons, present since Android-24.
* Fixed "Settings | Input | Assign Keyboard Keys" functionality.
* Fixed problem starting a game with ColEm when ColEm Deluxe is installed.
* Fixed action bar stuck after using "Cheats | Cheat Hunter | Add Watch" dialog.
* Fixed desktop shortcuts not working on some filenames.
* Fixed starting some files from the Gallery.

Two of my apps, iNES and AlmostTI, are currently on sale at Google Play for $2.99:

https://play.google....id=com.fms.ines-- iNES
https://play.google....?id=com.fms.ati-- AlmostTI

Enjoy!

ColEm has always been a favorite. Too bad you don't have a 2600 emulator for Android as seems the only one still available has been abandoned.

Nobody has ported Stella so far? Strange.

No, the one available is a port of Stella but it's a few versions behind and hasn't been updated in some time.
