  1. Hello, All! I have just published iNES 5.7.8 for Android, a free version of my NES, Famicom, DiskSystem, and VS-System emulator: http://fms.komkon.org/iNES/iNES-Android-5708.apk No Google Play release today, since their wonderful team is once again unhappy with some aspect of the app, undisclosed to me. The latest release fixes a bunch of issues, listed below. ALL CHANGES: * Fixed double clicks starting two game instances on some devices. * Fixed screen going blue on some Androids, such as Chromebooks. * Fixed settings not being applied after changing them in Preferences. PS: AlmostTI, my TI graphing calc emulator, is currently on $2.99 sale: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.ati
  2. Hello, All! VGBAnext 6.3.5, a new version of my universal GBA, GBC, and NES emulator for Android, is now available from Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.emu In this release, I added standard search functionality on AndroidTV and fixed a bunch of input-related bugs. One of these fixed bugs caused the screen to literally go blue on some devices (like Chromebooks). As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning VGBAnext from the store. You can easily reenable cheats by downloading this file to your "Downloads" folder: http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/VGBAnext-Cheats.zip See below for the complete list of changes in this release. ALL CHANGES: * Fixed screen going blue on some Androids, such as Chromebooks. * Fixed settings not being applied after changing them in Preferences. * Added standard AndroidTV search functionality. * Modified "Changes" dialog to keep Google approval drones happy. * Enabled navigation with [DPAD_CENTER], [DELETE], and [ESCAPE] keys. * Now ignoring repeated keypresses.

  7. Hello, All! VGBAnext 6.3.4, a new version of my universal GBA, GBC, and NES emulator for Android, is now available from Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.emu In this release, I have made sure that the virtual gamepad looks the same in all screen resolutions. If you had to tweak virtual controls' size before, you may have to readjust them via "Settings | Input | Edit Joystick Layout". The new release also switches to the latest Google APIs and thus requires at least Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) or newer to run. If you are still stuck on Gingerbread (are you, really?), now would be a really good time to upgrade. As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning VGBAnext from the store. You can easily reenable cheats by downloading this file to your "Downloads" folder: http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/VGBAnext-Cheats.zip See below for the complete list of changes in this release. ALL CHANGES: * Virtual buttons now have same size on all devices. * App now requires Android 4.1+ (Jelly Bean) to run. * Switched to "androidx.leanback.*" APIs. * Switched to Firebase for reporting. * Switched to Gradle 5.6. PS: AlmostTI, my TI graphing calc emulator, is currently on $2.99 sale: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.ati Enjoy!
