Hello, All!

I have just published MasterGear 4.6, emulating Sega MasterSystem, GameGear, SG-1000, and SC-3000 on Android:

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

This release introduces the completely new, modern interface for AndroidTV users. The new UI is based on the Leanback library, as suggested by Google. If you experience any problems with it, or miss any features, please, do not hesitate to email me.

In other news, I've fixed gamepad button assignment problems and made box art show up immediately as it gets downloaded. Also, there is now native support for 64bit Intel CPUs. As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning MasterGear from the store. You can easily reenable cheats though by downloading this file to your Downloads folder:

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

See below for all the changes in this release.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added completely new, modern AndroidTV interface.
* Please, email me if you encounter any issues with the new AndroidTV UI.
* Fixed gamepad button assignments.
* Completely refactored File Selector code.
* Made box art show immediately after download.
* Now properly wiping current screenshot when box art downloaded.
* Added 5ms and 10ms tactile feedback options.
* Added native 64bit Intel support.

Enjoy!

PS: Speccy Deluxe is on $2.99 sale this week:

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

This release fixes virtual buttons size on some devices and improves the new AndroidTV UI. I also fixed a bunch of crashes experienced by a few AndroidTV users.

Finally, MasterGear is currently on $2.99 sale at the Google Play Store. It is going to stay this way until the end of the week. See below for all the changes.

Hello, All!

MasterGear 4.6.2 for Android, a new version of my Sega MasterSystem and GameGear emulator, is now available:

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

This release makes virtual buttons appear the same way on all devices, in all screen resolutions. If you had to tweak your buttons, use "Settings | Input | Edit Joystick Layout" option to tweak them back as necessary. I have also switched to the latest AndroidX and Firebase APIs from Google, so the app now requires Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) or newer. Whoever is still using Android Gingerbread, people, you really have to upgrade already. As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning MasterGear from the store. You can easily reenable cheats though by downloading this file to your Downloads folder:

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

See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Virtual buttons now have same size on all devices.
* App now requires Android 4.1+ (Jelly Bean) to run.
* Changed Apache HTTP library linkage.
* 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 at Google Play:

Have fun!
