issue seems to be only with Spyro Season of Ice, here's what's happening, i start the game fresh empty save save folder, i get to the first save point, saves successfully, i exit the emulated game and a sav file is created but once i start the game again it acts as if there was no save file, only new game is available, to fix this I have to go into emulation settings and select reset EPROM to 6 bit and after a restart the save file works and game can be saved normally afterwards, resetting the EPROM to 14 bit does nothing.
I have fixed this bug. The fix will arrive with the next VGBAnext release.

Hello, All!

VGBAnext 6.3.3, a new version of my universal GBA, GBC, and NES emulator for Android, is now available from Google Play:

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

For this release, I sanitized the source code of all real and potential crash sources that showed up over the last few months. While the crashes only appear in about 0.4% of runs, please, email me if the app crashes on you for any reason. I have also fixed the size of virtual buttons. They should now have the same size on all devices and screen densities. Finally, there is a fix for in-game saves in the Spyro game. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
* If you are missing game cheats, please, go here:
http://fms.komkon.org/EmuAndroid/#VGBA
* Fixed saves in Spyro: Season of Ice.
* Fixed virtual buttons getting too large or too small.
* Improved the new AndroidTV interface.
* Fixed rare division by zero when creating icon tiles.
* Fixed missing method crash in the new AndroidTV UI.
* Fixed null pointer crash when starting new AndroidTV UI.
* Fixed null pointer crash when visiting Google Play.
* Fixed possible native crash when recording gameplay.
* Changed Apache HTTP library linkage.

PS: fMSX-Deluxe, my MSX home computer emulator, is currently on $2.99 sale:

Enjoy!

Hello, All!

VGBAnext 6.3.4, a new version of my universal GBA, GBC, and NES emulator for Android, is now available from Google Play:

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

In this release, I have made sure that the virtual gamepad looks the same in all screen resolutions. If you had to tweak virtual controls' size before, you may have to readjust them via "Settings | Input | Edit Joystick Layout". The new release also switches to the latest Google APIs and thus requires at least Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) or newer to run. If you are still stuck on Gingerbread (are you, really?), now would be a really good time to upgrade. As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning VGBAnext from the store. You can easily reenable cheats by downloading this file to your "Downloads" folder:

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

See below for the complete list of changes in this release.

ALL CHANGES:
* Virtual buttons now have same size on all devices.
* App now requires Android 4.1+ (Jelly Bean) to run.
* Switched to "androidx.leanback.*" APIs.
* Switched to Firebase for reporting.
* Switched to Gradle 5.6.

Hello, All!

VGBAnext 6.3.5, a new version of my universal GBA, GBC, and NES emulator for Android, is now available from Google Play:

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

In this release, I added standard search functionality on AndroidTV and fixed a bunch of input-related bugs. One of these fixed bugs caused the screen to literally go blue on some devices (like Chromebooks). As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning VGBAnext from the store. You can easily reenable cheats by downloading this file to your "Downloads" folder:

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

See below for the complete list of changes in this release.

ALL CHANGES:
* Fixed screen going blue on some Androids, such as Chromebooks.
* Fixed settings not being applied after changing them in Preferences.
* Added standard AndroidTV search functionality.
* Modified "Changes" dialog to keep Google approval drones happy.
* Enabled navigation with [DPAD_CENTER], [DELETE], and [ESCAPE] keys.
* Now ignoring repeated keypresses.

Hello, All!

VGBAnext 6.3.6, a new version of my universal GBA, GBC, GB, NES, and Famicom emulator for Android, is now available from Google Play:

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

This release comes with a single important fix. Previously, you could start two instances of the same game by double clicking it in the File Selector. The second instance ran in the background, invisibly, and exited at the same time with the first instance. Most of the time, anyway. This weird issue has now been fixed. As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning VGBAnext from the store. You can easily reenable cheats by downloading this file to your "Downloads" folder:

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

Finally, VGBAnext is currently on $2.99 sale at Google Play. Going to stay this way for another few days. If you wanted to get a truly universal Nintendo retro-console emulator, this is your chance. Yes, it can also do Super GameBoy, Famicom DiskSystem, and VS-System arcade.

Have fun!

Hello, All!

VGBAnext 6.3.9, a new version of my universal GBA, GBC, and NES emulator for Android, is now available on $2.99 sale from Google Play:


Since a lot of people complained that they cannot access their SD cards and USB storage, I added options for each available storage device to the "Change Folder" dialog. All you need to do now is open "Change Folder" dialog, select your storage device, and click on "Ok". If you are using AndroidTV, the list of your storage devices can be found in the top row of icons. As you remember, I had to disable cheat features to avoid Google staff banning VGBAnext from the store. You can easily reenable cheats by downloading this file to your "Downloads" folder:


See below for the complete list of changes in this release.

ALL CHANGES:
  • VGBAnext is on $2.99 sale at Google Play this week.
  • Added list of available storage devices to "Change Folder" dialog.
  • Added available storage devices to the top row in AndroidTV UI.
  • Changed message indicating that Android denied a directory listing.

Have fun!

Hello, All!

I have released VGBA 6.1 for Windows and Linux today, a new version of my GameBoy Advance emulator:

Virtual GameBoy Advance: Portable GameBoy Advance Emulator -- homepage

http://fms.komkon.org/VGBA/VGBA61-Ubuntu-x86-bin.tgz -- free Linux version

The new release comes with a major rewrite of the scaling and special effects infrastructure. The Windows version has got better support for multiple displays and optimized rendering for larger screens. There is now a separate option for linear image scaling, using hardware if possible. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
  • Refactored scaling and special effects framework in VGBA-Windows.
  • Optimized scaling for large screens and windows.
  • Added option to force hardware linear scaling.
  • Enabled "Video | Stretch Full Screen" option with effects enabled.

Hello, All!

I have published VGBA 6.2 for Windows and Linux today, a new version of my GameBoy Advance emulator:

Virtual GameBoy Advance: Portable GameBoy Advance Emulator -- homepage
http://fms.komkon.org/VGBA/VGBA62-Windows-bin.zip -- free Windows version
http://fms.komkon.org/VGBA/VGBA62-Ubuntu-x86-bin.tgz -- free Linux version

The new release adds drag'n'drop support to the Windows version, so you can drop .GBA files onto VGBA window to load them. There is now a new CPU-based linear interpolation algorithm for cases, where GPU-based linear interpolation cannot be used. The Linux version adds the "-linear" command line argument to enable linear interpolation, as opposed to one of more complex scaling algorithms. Finally, the Android version of VGBA, called VGBAnext, is on $2.99 sale at Google Play this week:


In addition to GameBoy Advance, VGBAnext will emulate GameBoy Color, GameBoy Classic, NES, Famicom, and a few other Nintendo consoles. See below for all the changes.

ALL CHANGES:
  • Added CPU-based simple linear scaling algorithm.
  • Added file drag'n'drop support to VGBA-Windows.
  • Added "-linear" command line option to VGBA-Linux.

Enjoy!

The current week's VGBA-Android 3.9.9 delivery further mechanizes Cheatopedia by making it consequently distinguish what game you are playing and retain the last page you have been on. It likewise makes things a touch more agreeable for tablet proprietors, who presently can flip the activity bar with a vertical excursion signal. I am as yet bewildered at the reasons Google had for supplanting the MENU button (physical or virtual) with the screen-eating activity bar, however at any rate you can flick it away now in VGBA.
