Hi !

Here is my current progress on porting Final Burn Alpha on our android devices. There's still some work to do (see todo list next). Most games seems to work, including CPS1, CPS2, CPS3, NEOGEO, PGM and all other supported FBA platforms except consoles. It run great on my Galaxy Note n7000, with a lower device it will maybe not run at fullspeed.

FBA support multiple systems, including Cave, Neo Geo, Sega System 16 (and similar), System 18, CPS-1, CPS-2, CPS-3, X-Board, Y-Board, Toaplan, Taito, Psikyo 68EC020 based hardware and misc boards. This project is released under the FBA licence, and android source code is hosted on github.

I hope you'll enjoy, thanks for the support.

There's still some work to do: improve audio quality, fix a CPS1 state saving bug, add portait controller for vertical games and a few more things.

Else most games seems to work, including CPS1, CPS2, CPS3, NEOGEO, PGM and all other supported FBA platforms except consoles. It run at fullspeed with no frameskip on my Galaxy Note n7000, with a lower device it won't run fullspeed i guess. As my other emulators, a free full version will be uploaded here very soon !

So here is a (long) video preview, if you don't mind looking at a looser playing


Edit: the video is currently being rotated by youtube, come back later to not have to rotate your head

When will it come out??? Finally!!! Thanks!!
