Hello, All!

iNES 5.4.1 for Android, fixing Android Pie compatibility, is now online:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.ines

For this version, I had to switch back to Android-27 SDK, since the newest Android SDK does not work with some of Google's own code. I have also fixed screenshot sharing on newer Androids. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Switched back to Android-27 SDK since Android-28 appears broken.
* Fixed compatibility with Android Pie.
* Fixed crash when trying to share a screenshot on newer Androids.
* Upgraded Google Analytics library to the latest compatible version.

It is worth noting that ColEm Deluxe, the complete version of my ColecoVision emulator for Android, is currently on sale for $1.99:

Enjoy!

Hello, All!

I have published iNES 5.4.2 for Android, a new version of my Nintendo NES and Famicom emulator, on Google Play:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.ines

This release fixes a crash in the Joystick Layout Editor and enables physical buttons on the Archos Gamepad. I have also made Settings screens always use the system theme, since Android does not allow to theme them properly. Finally, I added Cheatopedia cheats for five more games, including Batman and AD&D titles. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Fixed crash in Joystick Layout Editor when buttons become too small.
* No longer skinning Settings background, since Android does not support it.
* Now skipping fake virtual "joystick" supplied by Archos Gamepad.
* Added Cheatopedia cheats for 5 more games.
* Added cheats for two Advanced Dungeons & Dragons games.
* Added cheats for three Batman games.

Enjoy!

PS: fMSX Deluxe, the complete version of my MSX home computer emulator, is still on sale for $1.99, but not for very long:

Hello, All!

I have published iNES 5.4.4 this morning, a new release of my NES and Famicom emulator:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.ines

This release allows to assign media keys (such as volume controls) and other special keys to joystick buttons. I have completely refactored key assignment code, fixing several bugs and adding support for diagonal keypad buttons introduced in Android Nougat. Also, a minor Cheat Hunter bug, where the action bar would not disappear after adding a watch, has been fixed. 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 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.

In other news, there is a minor bugfix release of VGB 5.5.4 today:

Enjoy!

Hello, All!

The VGBAnext 6.0 console emulator app is now online:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.emu

Since Google Play has banned my iNES emulator for an invented reason, and I have not been able to find a human being there who would listen and see the situation for what it is, the iNES functionality has now been folded into VGBAnext. Thus, in addition to GameBoy Advance, GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic, and Super GameBoy, the new VGBAnext will also emulate NES, Famicom, DiskSystem, and VS System consoles. That is a total of 8 different consoles in the same app.

Enjoy!

PS: The fMSX Deluxe app is currently on $1.99 sale:

The new release adds native support for 64bit Androids and several fixes for NES and GBC emulation. The action bar can now be invoked by moving your finger left or right along the top or bottom screen edge.

It is available from Google Play and includes the complete iNES functionality, as well as VGBA and VGB.

Hello, All!

Hello, All!

I have finally managed to push the free iNES 5.7.10 for Android into Google Play store today:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.ines.free

This time, Google inquisition crack team has forced me to do the following:

* Change the icon so that it does not show NES console, because they think it is a veiled copyright violation.
* Change the app title so that it does not contain the word "NES", for the same reason.
* Remove toolbar at the bottom of the screen, since they think it is "deceptive advertising".

I have no idea what is going on at that company and inside its management heads, but it is not good. Not only they treat developers like trash, shoveling them out at random with no real possibility of appeal or feedback, but there is serious loss of common sense at play. Anyways, this release contains the same changes introduced in the non-GooglePlay release a week ago, plus a few others.

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.
* Google Play "review team" no longer accepts app icons shaped as console.
* Google Play "review team" no longer accepts console name as part of app name.
* Google Play "review team" considers toolbar "deceptive advertising".
