Does this emulator support Landscape modes? If not is that an option that is coming? It sounds very cool, but landscape is what I game in.

Whoa this emulator is good.

You asked for bugs. Well i found at least one, at some gameboy games. When you play Zelda: Oracle of Ages or the similar zelda, the music plays way to fast and sounds cracky. Similar in the overworld of Mario Land 2. I've only tested one gamegear game: Sonic and Tales. It plays perfect :P

BTW, why would you want landscape mode? The screens are rectangular and fit in the regular screen mode...

In landscape, I much prefer the "control" pad and screen (at my left). My hands are to big for using the controller when not in landscape. I don't mind the stretching of landscape. In fact the NES/Genesis/SNES emulators out now all look great in this mode.

So far all the games I have tried run great except for some sound stuttering.

Recently I tried a gameboy color game that had constant stuttering sound during gameplay.

Keep up the good work and let us know when it is available for purchase please :P

I'm glad most games are working correctly. Please specify in a note to me ([email protected]) which specific games have stuttering sound or other problems.

Allowing rotation of the display is not going to be a problem to code, but it will impact performance. Writing to the display in the "wrong" direction causes more cache hits and impacts performance.

a few more considerations:

- file association would be nice, so that you could link your favorite ROM on the start menu.
- LED light during gameplay should be persistent.
- support for multigames ROM (e.g. 50 in 1)
- Able to go out of the emulator and back again (for checking sms or calls without quiting the loaded game)

rcperez,
Thanks for the suggestions. There is already a good way to exit a game and jump back in (autoload). Right now if the focus is taken away by a call, the game should pause. If it is not doing that, please let me know.

Not sure you are aware, but there is no need to unzip the games, SmartGear can open zip files directly. When I create the installer, I will add the ability to do file associations, but for me, this doesn't really make sense because I keep all of the games in zip files and associating them would not necessarily be what you want.

I did not put the "LED light" persistent during gameplay because of the poor battery life I am seeing on my MPx200. I have just added this as a checkbox option in the settings page. I will release a new build with it shortly.

All games should work. If something does not work correctly please send me the necessary info to track it down and debug it (e.g. bug encountered, platform, game name).

L.B.

err-- I was wondering if anyone else got this bug: I always set the keypad tones to "silent" but when I run SmartGear, the keypad tone changes back to "tone." I'm using an SPVE100, Bitbank...

Hi,

I've tried running this from my SD card on my E200 and it just locks up the phone completely ?? Any specifics as to where it should be ran, etc. ?? Using the latest version above,

Thanks

Jason.

I've just uploaded a new build (0.03) with the following changes:

1) Fixed the keypad tone on/off problem (I hope)
2) Added option to keep the phone from sleeping / light off
3) Improved both GG and GBC performance
4) Fixed some GG games which people reported were not working.

As always you can download it here:

www.bitbanksoftware.com/downloads/smartgear.zip

Please send any feedback / feature requests to [email protected]

P.S. I always run it from my SD card, so that is not the problem.

coolbox,
Please send me a note ([email protected]) with details about the phone you are using, the platform (GG/GB/GBC) and the game. I'll see if I can correct the problem.

I have an MPX200 with the 02 generic rom and have been running this emu and games ALL off the SD card.

Must be a phone compatibility issue?

I have integrated the NES code, but it needs a major performance boost and the scaled graphics code. I never really optimized this code, so I am sure there is plenty of room for improvement. The EXE size is now 227K (not bad for 3 emulators in one). I will keep you posted as to my progress...
