Hello, All!

I've just published fMSX 5.5.1 for Android, a new release of my MSX home computer emulator:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx -- free version
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx.deluxe -- full version
http://garageresearch.aptoide.com/ -- on Aptoide
http://android.oms.apps.opera.com/en_us/catalog.php?vendor_id=199556 -- in Opera Store

This release adds Cheatopedia with pre-made cheats for about 900 MSX games. Since Cheatopedia entries are automatically generated from a collection of .MCF files, they may contain errors and omissions. If you are experiencing problems with Cheatopedia, or would like to make a correction, please, email me. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added Cheatopedia support.
* Added cheats for 900+ MSX games.
* Initial MSX Cheatopedia release, expect some glitches, report problems.
* Added light and dark skins to the Cheat Editor.
* No longer skinning Settings background, since Android does not support it.

Enjoy!

PS: fMSX Deluxe is currently on sale for $1.99:

Hello, All!

I have published fMSX 5.5.5 for Android, a new version of my MSX, MSX2, and MSX2+ home computer emulator:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx -- free version
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx.deluxe -- full version

This version includes native support for 64bit ARM CPUs and fixes accelerated audio on newer Androids. Unfortunately, I had to disable Cheatopedia, Cheat Editor, and Cheat Hunter features, since Google Play no longer allows them and bans any apps that come with game cheating features. You can reenable these features yourself, by downloading this file and unzipping it to the "/sdcard/fMSX" folder:

http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/fMSX-Cheats.zip

See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added native support for 64bit ARMv8 CPUs.
* Fixed accelerated sound on newer Androids.
* Had to remove the cheats, since Google Play no longer allows them and bans apps containing cheats.
* You can reenable cheats yourself, see help page for details.
* Switched to Gradle build.

Hello, All!

I have published fMSX 5.5.6 for Android, a new version of my MSX, MSX2, and MSX2+ home computer emulator:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx -- free version
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx.deluxe -- full version

This version fixes saved states compatibility between 32bit and 64bit versions, as well as a few other problems. In order to enable Cheatopedia and other cheat features, you need to download this file:

http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/fMSX-Cheats.zip

into your Downloads folder, and the app will do the rest. Also, the action bar can now be revealed with a quick horizontal fling along the top or bottom screen edge. This new gesture does not interfere with the vertical fling newer Androids use for their navigation UI. Finally, fMSX-Deluxe is currently on sale for $1.99. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Now searching for ROOT.chts in /sdcard/fMSX and all its subfolders.
* Automatically unzipping fMSX-Cheats.zip, if found in Downloads.
* Now able to show action bar with horizontal flings at screen top/bottom.

The app is now built with Android Pie SDK. I have enabled tilt joystick functionality and fixed MSX model settings interfering with gameplay state loading. Additionally, pressing the BACK button now reveals the action bar. As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning fMSX from the store. You can easily reenable cheats by downloading this file to your Downloads folder:

http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/fMSX-Cheats.zip

See below for all the changes in this release.

ALL CHANGES:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx.deluxe -- full version

This release comes with the new icons, including adaptive icons as required by Android Oreo+. I have also fixed switching MSX model on reset and recording MIDI soundtrack when the current folder is read-only. In this case, fMSX will create MIDI files in the /sdcard/fMSX folder. As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning fMSX from the store. You can easily reenable cheats though by downloading this file to your Downloads folder:

http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/fMSX-Cheats.zip

See below for all the changes in this release.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added new icons, including adaptive icons.
