All my old apps for Nokia platforms can now be found from Opera AppStore

The Ovi store closed down more than a month ago. I migrated to the opera appstore, and updated the link to poin to the Opera store instead of Ovi.

Anyway, Here’s the new Badges for my apps

AntSnes for Symbian:

MeBoy Lite for S40:

gpSP 0.7.2+ Repacked with new game_config

the gpSP is a gameboy advance emulator originally written by Exophase. And now it’s ported to the Symbian OS!

I head from the users that the game_config.txt from the past works better than the one packaged with 0.7.2. Some say that the Pokemon Fire Red works with this game_config, while it doesn’t work with the one packages in 0.7.2. For me it seems to be working with both game_configs, so I decided to make a new package for you. Does this one work better, do we have better game compatibility, or do you prefer the one packaged with the older 0.7.2? You can reply in the comments section.

This version supports only Symbian^3 phones with Symbian Belle refresh installed (N8, E7 etc.). The old Symbian Anna users should still use the older gpSP 0.7.  The S60 5th edition users should use the gpsp 0.6.5 for S60 5th edition

What’s new:

  • Repacked with new game_config.txt

 

Controls:

  • You can choose between 8-directional and 4-directional DPads.
  • You can add hidden A+B button areas, to press both of them at once.
gpsp: the red dots indicates the hidden A+B areas

know issues:

  • Mounted shares(Dropbox etc.) breaks the filemanger, so do not use mounted shares.
  • It’s a gpsp port, so see the gpsp compatibility list before complaining about non-working ROMs
  • the emulator crashes if you try to load a ROM without setting the BIOS
  • there are some limitations in the ZIP file support, so maybe you have to upzipt the ROMs
  • The ZIP files seem to be eating quite a lot of RAM, so If ROM doesn’t work, try extracting it.

ZIP limitations

  • WinZip
  • Roms ziped in the WinZip Maximum (PPMd) format WILL NOT work.
  • Roms ziped in the WinZip Maximum (bzip2) format WILL NOT work
  • Roms ziped in the WinZip Maximum (Enhanced Deflate) format WILL NOT run
  • Roms ziped in the WinZip Normal format WILL run
  • Roms ziped in the WinZip Fast format WILL run.
  • Roms ziped in the WinZip Super Fast format WILL run.
  • Roms ziped in the WinZip None format WILL run.

AntSnes 1.0: Now Available in Nokia store

AtnSnes is Snes9x emulator for Symbian. It is actually based on DrPocketSNES version 6.4.4, which in turn is based on snes9x 1.39

The Symbian days are over for me, and I finally uploaded the app into the Nokia store :) The Nokia QA guys didn’t like the mario icon, so I had to remove it, and use crappier icon instead. This version should work with all Symbian Anna & Bellle phones.

What’s new

  • new crappy icon, since the mario icon didn’t pass nokia QA :)
  • now available in nokia store

Known issues:

  • Mounted shares(Dropbox etc.) breaks the filemanger, so do not use mounted shares.
  • Does not work on Nokia 500, since it doesn’t have GPU.

gpSP 0.7.2 for Symbian Belle Refresh and FP2

the gpSP is a gameboy advance emulator originally written by Exophase. And now it’s ported to the Symbian OS!

It seems that Nokia has changed something with Symbian memory management in new Symbian Belle refresh update, and it seems that the old gpsp 0.7.1 doesn’t work anymore after Belle refresh update. This version contains minor adjustments to the memory management to make it will work with Symbian belle refresh again.

This version supports only Symbian^3 phones with Symbian Belle refresh installed (N8, E7 etc.). The old Symbian Anna users should still use the older gpSP 0.7.  The S60 5th edition users should use the gpsp 0.6.5 for S60 5th edition

What’s new:

  • Support for Symbian Belle Refresh

 

Controls:

  • You can choose between 8-directional and 4-directional DPads.
  • You can add hidden A+B button areas, to press both of them at once.
gpsp: the red dots indicates the hidden A+B areas
