Thank You, I know about MSX.emu but I'm asking about fMSX. I'm not an emulator user, I prefer real hardware and I doesn't play games out of home. Just testing if this kind of things work ok with my smartphone. The only useful thing for me is that you can show some msx stuff without have to carry on with your real MSX. Yes, I know they are more useful than that, but not for me in particular.

No problem, Warchild, with your limited using of emulators. I understand why fMSX is probably more appropriate in your case.

I guess some fMSX-Android users can help you. I don't have an Android, so it's a little difficult for me to help you further.

@warchild I think that's the way fmsx has been set up. It tries to leave large areas for the touch controls, but it's not easy to handle. It's a problem with touchscreens simulating a gamepad in general, but perhaps some improvements would be in order.

Is there any difference between payment and free versions? (apart of the adds)
Right now, it is just the ads.

I've used just a few roms to test, it seems to run games quite well but are unplayable for me because touch area for keys and fire buttons invade the game screen.
It is unavoidable on the small phone screens: there is not enough space for both the MSX screen and controls. Having a phone with the physical keyboard helps Smile

There is a better MSX emulator for Android : MSX.emu, based on blueMSX. Contrary to fMSX-Android, it's not free ($7.99). ... I don't have an Android, so it's a little difficult for me to help you further.
Mmmm.... ok. Smile

Thanks a lot, I supose the main problem with touchscreen pad is the size of the screen, maybe with a tablet with bigger screen this problem doesn't exist, so maybe I'll try with a controller if I found a non-expensive one.

About debugger, I've found that emulator opens it when msx crashes. If I open, close and open again a rom too fast it hangs and the debugger appears. I think can be good to have the option to open debugger from the menu.

I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S plus, if that helps.

That is, indeed, true. I am also considering showing controller under the screen when in portrait orientation. This will, of course, make the screen smaller, but at least it will stay separate from the controller and the virtual keyboard.

About debugger, I've found that emulator opens it when msx crashes. If I open, close and open again a rom too fast it hangs and the debugger appears. I think can be good to have the option to open debugger from the menu.
Yeah, I do not currently have an option to open debugger from the menu: the debugger has always been more of an extra than a necessity. Will add a menu option in the future though.

Whoever complained about fMSX crashing Samsung Galaxy S2 phones, please, update to the version 3.5.11 from the Android Market and test if this version works for you.
