    Hello, All!

    fMSX-Android 4.7.5 is now online and ready for you to download:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx -- free version
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.fms.fmsx.deluxe -- full version
    http://garageresearch.aptoide.com/ -- on Aptoide
    http://android.oms.apps.opera.com/en_us/catalog.php?vendor_id=199556 -- in Opera Store

    This release adds the "Automatic" audio sampling rate setting that lets the emulator pick the optimal sampling rate and buffer size reported by Andorid OS. This should provide you with the minimal possible latency from the Android itself. I have also heavily optimized GLES shaders used for scaling and special effects. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Optimized OpenGLES shaders used in scaling algorithms and filters.
    * Added "Audio | Sampling Rate | Automatic" option for best available sound.
    * Always using optimal rate and buffer size when "Automatic" selected.
    * Added "Audio | Sampling Rate" options for 24kHz and 48kHz sound.

    Enjoy!

    Hello, All!

    I have just updated my fMSX emulator to version 4.8 and released free Windows and Linux binaries, as well as the source code:

    http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/ -- homepage
    http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX48-Windows-bin.zip -- Windows version
    http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX48-Ubuntu-x86-bin.tgz -- Linux version
    http://fms.komkon.org/fMSX/fMSX48.zip -- source code

    Please note that the source code is open, but not GPLed. You can use it in a non-profit, non-commercial project as long as you make a proper reference to me as the original author. For commercial use, please contact me to discuss the licensing details.

    The latest version fixes loading of BASIC-only cartridges (Danger X4, Crazy Bullet, etc) and adds a hack to ignore bad writes to ASCII16 MegaROM mapper (Vaxol). I have also added an option to force 4:3 "television screen" ratio and another option to disable linear image interpolation on Windows. Also made a few Windows specific fixes. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Fixed loading of BASIC-only cartridges (Danger X4, Crazy Bullet, etc).
    * Added a hack to ignore bad writes to ASCII16 MegaROM mapper (Vaxol).
    * Added "Interpolate Video | Nearest Neighbor" option to fMSX-Windows.
    * fMSX-Windows will not overwrite last loaded file name with other names.
    * Added "Force 4:3 Screen" option to fMSX-Windows.
    * Added -4x3 command line option to fMSX-Unix.
    * Fixed file associations on Windows 8+.
    * Slightly rearranged Windows menus.

    Enjoy!

    This release adds HQ4X scaling algorithm and an option to force 4:3 "television" screen ratio. It also lets you disable GLES linear interpolation, removing the usual "fuzz" from the picture. Other changes include fixes to MIDI recording and the transparent title bar in the Layout Editor. See below for all the changes.

    ALL CHANGES:
    * Released free fMSX 4.8 for Windows and Linux.
    * Added "Video | Scale Video | Stretch to 4:3 Ratio" option.
    * Added "Video | Interpolation Effect | HQ4X" option.
    * Added "Video | Interpolation Effect | Disable" option.
    * Turned off GLES linear interpolation, unless "Default" interpolation selected.
    * Made title bar transparent in Layout Editor, when "Hide Title Bar" enabled.
    * Added effective waveform volume computation to the MIDI soundtrack recorder.
    * Corrected MIDI drums volume in AY8910 PSG emulation.
    * Further optimized GLES scaling algorithms.

    Have fun!
