  1. Hello, All! I've released ColEm 5.6.1 for Android, an update to my ColecoVision and Coleco Adam emulator: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.colem -- free version https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.colem.deluxe -- full version https://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/ -- homepage This release adds spinner controllers emulation, used in such games as Destructor. These spinners can be "spun" by touching the screen. Each of the two spinners can be simulated with either horizontal or vertical screen coordinate, with the screen center being neutral position. As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning ColEm from the store. You can easily reenable cheats though by downloading this file to your Downloads folder: https://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/ColEm-Cheats.zip ALL CHANGES: * Added "Settings | Hardware | Spinner #X" config options. * Enabled spinners emulation by touching the screen. * Fixed vertical coordinate processing by spinners. ColEm Deluxe, the complete version of ColEm, is on $2.99 sale at Google Play this week: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.colem.deluxe Enjoy!

It fixes the problem with in-game save files (.SAV) not being properly preserved on newer Android devices. Additionally, VGBAnext is on $2.99 sale at Google Play this week, 30% off its regular price. As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning VGBAnext from the store.

  5. Hello, All! I've just published ColEm 5.6 for Android, a new version of my ColecoVision and Coleco Adam emulator: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.colem -- free version https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.colem.deluxe -- full version https://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/ -- homepage This release is based on the ColEm 5.6 sources, released earlier this month. It will automatically switch between ColecoVision and Adam modes depending on the ROM being loaded. I have also improved File Selector scrolling performance on newer Android devices, by not checking for all auxiliary files.

  8. Hello, All! I have published VGBAnext 6.4.4, a new version of my universal GameBoy Advance, GameBoy Color, NES, and Famicom emulator for Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.emu This release is based on the latest VGBA, iNES, and VGB source code. In order to make File Selector scrolling more responsive, I no longer check for auxiliary files (such as save files, palettes, or cheats) when browsing content URIs. This makes File Selector much faster on Android 10+ devices, where the app cannot access file system directly. As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning VGBAnext from the store. You can easily reenable cheats though by downloading this file to your Downloads folder: http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/VGBAnext-Cheats.zip ALL CHANGES: * Disabled querying content providers for auxiliary files to improve performance. * Scrolling in File Selector has become much more responsive. * Using latest VGBA 6.3 source code. * Using latest iNES 6.0 source code. * Using latest VGB 5.9 source code.

  13. Must be a local configuration problem, since I would see more reports like this over the years. The app does not do anything special with the sound: it uses Win32 waveOut API.
