Hello, All!

I have released MasterGear 4.9, a new version of my Sega MasterSystem, GameGear, SG-1000, and SC-3000 emulator for Windows and Linux:

https://fms.komkon.org/MG/MG49-Windows-bin.zip -- free Windows binary
https://fms.komkon.org/MG/MG49-Ubuntu-x86-bin.tgz -- free Linux binary

The new MasterGear makes most command line options work on Windows, adds optional frame rate display, and fixes Windows sound initialization, among other things. The Android version of MasterGear is currently on $2.99 sale at Google Play:

Hello, All!

I've released MasterGear 4.9 for Android, a new version of my Sega MasterSystem, GameGear, and SG-1000 emulator:

MasterGear - MasterSystem & GameGear Emulator - Apps on Google Play

This release is based on the MasterGear 4.9 for Windows and Linux, published earlier this week. It fixes saving in-game save files (.SAV) and a few other things. 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:

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

Also, MasterGear is on $2.99 sale at Google Play this week. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
  • Based on the latest MasterGear 4.9 sources.
  • Fixed saving battery-back memory files (.SAV).
  • Now only saving screenshot when saving state.
  • Fixed saving states with a hardware key.

Have fun!

Several possible crashes and a security issue when unpacking .ZIP files have also been fixed. Finally, there is now support for newer AndroidTV devices.

Hello, All!

I've released MasterGear 4.9.3 for Android, a new version of my Sega MasterSystem, GameGear, and SG-1000 emulator:


The new release applies the final fix to keyboard key assignments and no longer displays the complete folder path in the File Selector title. Just the folder name is shown instead.

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 and clicking on it in the File Selector:


ALL CHANGES:
  • Another fix to gamepad assignments to keyboard keys.
  • Now showing folder name in the title instead of complete path.
  • Now disabling keyboard options if there is no keyboard.

Enjoy!
