Hello, All!

VGBAnext 5.6.5 is now online:

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

The new version adds the remaining time display when replaying a game. It is shown in seconds to the right of the replay indicator. I have also added dark and light textured backgrounds to the Settings activity, depending on the UI color setting. Finally, the app now uses Material Design theme rather than the default device theme for the Settings.

For the next several days, VGBAnext is on sale for $2.99. If you liked the app, but not the price, now is the time to make the move. See below for all the changes in the latest version.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added remaining time display during replay.
* Fixed replay rollover mechanism.
* Added shadow underneath the time display.
* Settings activity now uses black/white UI setting.
* Switched Settings to Material Design on Lollipop+.

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:

Hello, All!

I have published VGBAnext 6.0.1 for Android, a new version of my universal GameBoy Advance, GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic, Super GameBoy, NES, Famicom, DiskSystem, and VS System emulator:

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

This version includes native support for 64bit ARM CPUs. 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/VGBAnext" folder:

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

See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* Added native build for 64bit ARMv8 CPUs.
* Had to remove the cheats, since Google Play no longer allows them and bans apps containing cheats.
* Please, go and see the help page for information on how to reenable cheats.
* Switched to Gradle build.

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.

To remind everyone, I had to remove cheats from the app since Google Play started banning any apps which even mention cheats. To reenable cheats, follow directions here:

* Blanking NES sprites when the left screen edge is blanked.
* Fixed GBC real-time clock day counter (Pokemon games).
