Hello, All!

I have managed to publish the latest version of iNES for Android, 5.7.14, to Google Play:


It is essentially the same app as the one available from iNES website. You may want to install it if you prefer automated updates, although pushing each successive update to Google Play has become a hugely difficult task. Every single time, I have to prove to Google meat drones that the app does not include any Nintendo assets, has no NES images anywhere, and does not even mention NES in the app description or the title.

Anyways, enjoy while it lasts.

PS: fMSX Deluxe, the complete version of my MSX emulator, is currently on $2.99 sale:

Hello, All!

I've just released the free iNES 5.7.15, a new version of my NES and Famicom emulator for Android:

FreeINESs - Free 8bit Console Emulator - Apps on Google Play -- on Google Play
http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/iNES-Android.apk -- on website

I am releasing this version as both standalone APK and Google Play download, since I am not sure if Google will allow me to continue keeping it in Google Play. This release fixes State Exchange, Network Play, and Box Art Downloader features. I have also fixed a rare crash on AndroidTV and made some changes to the File Selector user interface. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
  • Fixed stray crash on AndroidTV when obtaining the list of storage devices.
  • When parent folder not available, showing storage devices instead.
  • Fixed State Exchange feature.
  • Fixed Network Play feature.
  • Fixed box art downloader.

PS: If you like iNES, please consider buying VGBAnext, my universal GameBoy Advance, GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic, NES, and Famicom emulator. It is on $2.99 sale this week:

See below for all the changes.

  • Based on the latest iNES 5.8 sources.

Hello, All!


The free iNES 5.9 for Windows and Linux, my NES, Famicom, DiskSystem, and VS-System emulator, is now available for download:

http://fms.komkon.org/iNES/iNES59-Windows-bin.zip --Windows binary
http://fms.komkon.org/iNES/iNES59-Ubuntu-x86-bin.tgz -- Linux binary

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

ALL CHANGES:
  • Refactored scaling and special effects framework.
  • Optimized scaling for large screens and windows.
  • Added simple CPU-based linear scaling algorithm.
  • Added file drag'n'drop support to iNES-Windows.

There is also a separate "Video | Interpolation Effect | Linear Interpolation" option now. See below for all the changes.

Hello, All!


I've published iNES 5.9.1 for Android, a new version of my NES, Famicom, DiskSystem, and VS-System emulator:

Nameless - Free 8bit Console Emulator - Apps on Google Play -- at Google Play
https://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/iNES-Android.apk -- outside Google Play
Revive Old Software on Your Android Phone or Tablet! -- homepage


Starting this November, Google no longer allows Android apps to access files on Android10+ devices, outside app's sandbox. All storage access is now supposed to be done via something called "Storage Access Framework".

I had to make major changes to iNES in order to comply with the new regulations. If you have a newer Android10+, you will see the list of storage volumes in the File Selector. Once you click on a volume, the app may ask you for permission to access it. Otherwise, things should work the same as before. If you find any new problems with the app though, please, report them to the support group or email me directly. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
  • Refactored app to comply with Google's latest ban on file I/O.
  • On Android 10+, all file access is now done via content providers.
  • Content is copied to a temporary folder for use, changes moved back on exit.
  • You may have to give app separate permission to read each storage location.

Have fun!

This release fixes a bunch of issues that popped up after refactoring the app for "Storage Access Framework" support. The app is once again runs on Android 4.2+ devices and properly handles spaces and parentheses in file names. I have also added support for homebrewn UNROM-512 (mapper #30) and Cheapocabra (mapper #111) boards.
