@PaddyC13 : I'm sorry, again, I pasted the wrong link. I'm afraid I'm getting old. "v2" was the previous test version, of course we're at "v3" now: https://cpc-emu.org/Release/2021-03-14/cpcemu_checkpoints_v3-win32-x86-2.2.zip

Hi @Emu

Extracted the new EXE and copied it to "C:\Program Files (x86)\CPCEMU-2.1\cpcemu.exe".

When I select CPC6128, I get a dialog box stating "Screen" followed by a blank window.  After a few seconds the blank window closes and then nothing.

Just to clarify, my PC in a ThinkPad E460 laptop with an Intel Core i7 6600U processor (Intel HD Graphics 520).  In addition, the laptop has dedicated graphics in the form of an AMD Radeon R7 M360 with 2GB RAM.

Kind regards

@PaddyC13 : Please try it from CMD again, including the redirection, and tell me the error message in log.txt:

Code: [Select]
cpcemu.exe > log.txt 2>&1
However, I expect: "Couldn't find matching render driver", which wouldn't help my any further.

Have you installed the latest graphics drivers? Are you perhaps trying this on Linux with Wine or something similar?

@Livingstone : It appears to be a naming problem of the APK, but I don't understand why this does not occur in version 2.1, and why this does not happen to everybody. Version 2.1 does work on the same device?!?



Sorry, I have not been able to answer before.
Indeed, all the tests have been done on the same device.
Now I have version 2.1 installed, but it has the problem that I can't get out of the apk installation directory, to search for more DSK's. :-[

@Livingstone : Thank you. I think I found a possible reason for the installation problem of v2.2 - I might have checked only one of the two signature options when creating the APK. On the other hand, a deinstallation should help to avoid this problem, which was not the case for your device. So, let's see if it works again if I use both signatures in the next release.

I'm already working on it, because I was told that the keyboard support for French (and, obviously, any other language, even German) is broken. I clearly remember me typing all keys in every selectable keyboard language to record the key codes at the correct places one day in the past - and typing on the German keyboard in CPCemu sometimes. I must have overwritten the .dat file with these key bindings later. I wonder why I cannot find the correct version among all the old versions. I'll continue to look for it and will have to redo this work if I cannot find it.

To make you and @CPCBEGIN happy I included the privilege to browse directories. Unfortunately, this works only in my Android 5 emulator, not in later emulated Android versions. I have not tested in on our real Android 5 device, yet.

Hi @Emu

Thank you for your reply.  I ran the test from the command line again and this is what the log file contains:

  (c) Marco Vieth & Rainer Loritz
             2002-2021
      -- all rights reserved --

Both Intel integrated and AMD discrete graphics are fully updated (as is the OS).

Versions are:

OS - Windows 10 Home 20H2 19042.870
Intel HD 520 Driver - 27.20.100.9316, 18/02/2021
AMD Radeon R7 M360 Driver - 27.20.15003.1004, 10/03/2021

Hope this helps.

Kind regards

Then we will wait for that new version with the new signatures.

Congrats @Emu to the new version of cpcemu. Actually cpcemu was the first CPC emulator that I ever used, years ago already on DOS. I even built the parallel port cable to transfer the ROMs and other data from my CPC to the PC  :) What I still like very much with this emulator - and what I think is a quite distinctive feature compared to the "competition" - is the feature to use |TAPE to read files directly from a directory on the hard disk (rather than having to have them in .DSK files). Unfortunately, on Linux this feature is not working as reliable anymore as previously on DOS. Because suddenly this is case sensitive although ideally it shouldn't be. Normally on the CPC it shouldn't make a difference if I say run"disc" or run "DISC", but at the moment this makes a difference. It would be great if this could be fixed.  ;)

Is there any progress for the Android version?
