VGB Release News and Support

Recommended Posts

Hello, All!
 
The free VGB 5.7 for Windows and Linux, my GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic, and Super GameBoy emulator, is now available for download:
 
 
The new version fixes several bugs with moving and resizing the application window and saves the choice of physical gamepad in VGB-Windows. The sound chip time is now measured in microseconds rather than milliseconds, for better precision. Finally, VGB-Windows comes with a menu option for clearing all current settings, in case they get messed up.
 
ALL CHANGES:
* Sound chip time is now measured in microseconds.
* Fixed high-frequency sound limit (GBC Frogger).
* Added "File | Clear Settings and Quit" option to VGB-Windows.
* Fixed small windows behavior in VGB-Windows.
* Fixed window position behavior in VGB-Windows.
* Saving physical joystick/gamepad selection in VGB-Windows.
 
Have fun!

Hello, All!

 

I have just released VGB 5.7 for Android, a new version of my GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic, and Super GameBoy emulator, as a free APK which can be downloaded from my own website:

 

http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/VGB-Android.apk

 

This release shares most its sources with VGB 5.7 for Windows and Linux, published earlier this week. It improves Box Art Downloader, fixes Network Play and State Exchange features, adds the list of available storage locations for the "Change Folder" dialog and the File Selector screen. The sound chip emulation now operates with microsecond precision. See below for all the changes.

 

ALL CHANGES:
* Based on the latest VGB 5.7 sources.
* Sound emulation now runs with microsecond precision.
* When parent folder not available, showing storage devices instead.
* Made multiple fixes to Box Art Downloader.
* Fixed Box Art Downloader to use alternative storage location.
* Fixed Box Art Downloader to follow redirects.
* Added HTTPS support to Box Art Downloader.
* Added list of available storage devices to "Change Folder" dialog.
* Added available storage devices to the top row in AndroidTV UI.
* When parent folder not available, showing storage devices instead.
* Fixed State Exchange feature.
* Fixed Network Play feature.

 

Enjoy!

Hello, All!

 

The free VGB 5.8 for Windows and Linux, my GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic, and Super GameBoy emulator, is now available for download:

 

Virtual GameBoy: Portable GameBoy Emulator -- homepage

http://fms.komkon.org/VGB/VGB58-Windows-bin.zip --Windows binary

http://fms.komkon.org/VGB/VGB58-Ubuntu-x86-bin.tgz -- Linux binary

 

The new version includes majorly refactored scaling and special effects framework and a simple CPU-based linear interpolation image  scaling algorithm. The CPU-based interpolation is used when it is impossible to use GPU to scale screen images. The Windows version has also got file drag'n'drop support and explicit "Video | Interpolate Video | Linear Scaling" option. The Linux version now supports "-linear" command line argument.

 

ALL CHANGES:

  • Added file drag'n'drop support to VGB-Windows.
  • Added CPU-based simple linear scaling algorithm.
  • Refactored scaling and special effects framework.
  • Optimized scaling for large screens and windows.
  • Enabled "Video | Stretch Full Screen" option with effects enabled.
  • Enabled "Video | Force 4:3 Screen" option with effects enabled.
  • Added "Video | Interpolate Video | Linear Scaling" option to VGB-Windows.
  • Added -linear command line option to VGB-Linux.

Have fun!

Hello, All!

This release is based on VGB 5.8 for Windows and Linux, published earlier this week. It comes with majorly refactored scaling and special effects framework. I have added a simple CPU-based linear interpolation scaling algorithm, used when GPU-based linear interpolation is unfeasible. There is now a new "Video | Interpolation Effect | Linear Interpolation" option in the Settings. See below for all the changes.

 

ALL CHANGES:
* Based on the latest VGB 5.8 sources.
* Refactored scaling and special effects framework.
* Added CPU-based simple linear interpolation algorithm.
* Added separate option for linear image interpolation.

 

Enjoy!
