Saturn based emulators for android - Olivier De Smet - 07-14-2012

Hello,

Now all my Saturn based calculator emulators use a native (C) core emulation. You can have a Saturn cpu up to 25MHz now.

This is for HP17BII, HP27S, HP42S, HP28S and HP71B emulators.

The HP28S got a new landscape tablet mode (you need a display at least 1024x600): printer, alpha keyboard and calc keybord in one display.

My mac is first gen intel MacBookpro: Core Duo cpu so I can't install last OS X needed for development, then I don't have an Ipad, and I don't want to pay some fees to be able to develop on iOS ....

If enough people buy my apps, perhaps I could buy all the needed hardware to develop on iPad ...

Add the price of needed stuff: I need at least 2500 € :^)

(and if I got this money, I have more 'useful' things to do with this amount of money, after all it's a hobby)

Sorry Namir, but it won't happen soon ...

Olvier,

How about you go on the FR2 TV show "Tout le monde veux prendre sa place" .. win a few thousand Euros ... and the problem is solved! BTW I will cheer you up since I see it here on TV5 at home in the US.

Hi Namir,

I stop watching TV since 2 years and actually I think it was a wise decision to have more free time for all sort of nice things to do (as programming emulators, reading books, listen music, ...)

I do all that AND watch TV in my 36 hour-days!!!

2500 euros? iOS development doesn't have to cost that much. Get a Mac mini, they're $600 new and of course you can get them for a lot less on eBay; use the monitor, keyboard, and mouse you already have (keyboard, mouse, video switch: $15). Plus, of course, the $100/year iOS developer tax. I made that investment, and the revenue from selling Free42 in the App Store (before I dropped the price to zero) and from donations (still ongoing) has repaid that investment many times over.

There are better reasons for avoiding iOS development. I personally find the iOS APIs to be very painful and frustrating to work with; Android is *much* nicer in that regard. :-)

Linux (GTK) ..?


Re: Saturn based emulators for android - Olivier De Smet - 07-20-2012

New free android emulator, search for go48s on googleplay.

Sorry it's android only :-)

If you got some trouble to start it, use 'menu/action/soft reset'

It's a nice emulator but the bottom half of the soft menus is cut off on my Droid Bionic. Also, I did a hard reset and now it's stuck at the recover memory screen. I got the go15c and that's great, no problems!


Re: Saturn based emulators for android - John Abbott (S. Africa) - 07-27-2012

Really nice emulator. I can put my real 48SX to sleep now :-) The increased speed is great
Works really well on my Samsung Galaxy SII.
Thanks Olivier.


Re: Saturn based emulators for android - Olivier De Smet - 07-27-2012

What is the resolution of the screen of your device ?

To get it back, use 'android/preferences/applications/go48s/remove data' then restart it.


Re: Saturn based emulators for android - Sam Backus - 07-27-2012

Droid Bionic is 540X960 pixels. Running ICS Android 4.0.4 Clearing the data allowed me to use the calculator again, but the soft menus are still mostly covered.


Re: Saturn based emulators for android - Ingo Paschke - 07-29-2012

Same on Galaxy Nexus / 4.1.1:

Other than that, this looks promising...


Re: Saturn based emulators for android - Hans-Erik Lehndal - 07-29-2012

I agree, it works great on my Galaxy S2 too. Tnx!


Re: Saturn based emulators for android - Sam Backus - 07-30-2012

Actually, your screenshot shows that you can read the soft menus. My screen actually only shows the top row of pixels, so I can't read them.


Re: Saturn based emulators for android - Olivier De Smet - 07-30-2012

This kind of bug is due to the multiple screen sizes of android devices, I will try to correct this bug soon.
