last release: FBA-RG350 r19 Base on  0.2.97.44
===
2010-01-22:
Split default ROM settings to two types: Vertical and Landscape. Suggest clean up all ROM configs and reset default settings when upgrade to r19.
Landscape default buttons 1:Y 2:B 3:X 4:A 5:L 6:R
Vertical default settings: 1:B 2:A auto-fire(1:Y 2:X ). rotate: -180(for RG350 right analog)

Add initial i18n language pack support. Now simplified chinese bitmap font 16x16 .. 12x12. Add language pack generate feature. Add skin in language pack. by nobk(不坏)

FBA .35 r17-1 special edition: Minor correction, two versions use separate favorites list.
FBA .35 r17 special edition: for play Bee Storm II 20-30 FPS. Base on  0.2.97.35 with right analog -180, hardware scaling full screen and all my changes from r2 to r17. Install both of them will be good combination, the ROM list cache is not the same copy and will not conflict with each other.

Highlight changes:
  FBA-RG350 app startup speed up by cache ROM list , 1 second up time with 5000 more ROMs, the fist time start up will create cache, it will take 13 seconds with 5000 more ROMs.
  Preview maker in game.
  Power button as in game menu hotkey.
  Add to favorites or delete ROMs.

2020-01-12: r17
  Simplify the process of generating preview images, the option to save as a preview image always takes effect.
  If there is no instant save in the current save sequence number, selecting the save preview function will save the paused picture before the game callout menu as a permanent preview. If you only want to take a preview, you don't need to save state now. You can just save the preview and exit the game directly.
  If the current instant archive number is valid, the last screen in state file archiving is saved to the permanent preview.
2020-01-11: r16
  No preview game will display exist save state screenshot as preview on game list(display order 9..0 reverse order).
  Add in game menu item 'Save as preview' to Save selected save state screenshot as preview to .fba/preview directory,
  that cause no preview game becomes have preview game.  by nobk(不坏)
2020-01-08: r15
  Add batch set mark flags, batch add to favorites, delete ROMs in batch (important note: delete without confirmation).
  The left and right arrow buttons in the ROM list interface have been changed to the page up/down function.
  Y+SELECT mark a ROM and move the cursor down. press again to mark multiple ROMs in sequence.
  Y+A Add all the marked ROMs to the favorite list. If the current list is a favorite list, the selected ROMs are cleared from the favorite list.
  Y+START Delete all marked ROMs. Since this is a two-step operation, it is not easy to mistakenly operate, so this operation does not provide a confirmation option, it will execute immediately, please use with care. by nobk(不坏)
2020-01-07: r13
  Detect ROMs directory changes(add or remove ROM) and auto refresh available ROMs list cache.
Keep the manual rescaning ROMs list feature as fallback plan. by nobk(不坏)
2020-01-06:r12
  Optimize program startup speed by using ROMs list cache. with 5200 ROMs in directory, program first time startup speed
  4 second faster than old release, and next time startup speed only 1 second.
  Notice: After add new game ROMs in to SD card ROMs directory, fba will not find them by default.
  You need press 'start' then 'A' to enter "Main settings" menu and run "Clear ROMs list cache and rescaning" menu item.

2020-01-05:r10  Save and Load state menu item add preview picture. by nobk(不坏)
2020-01-04:r9   Power button pop up menu. by nobk(不坏)
2020-01-03:r8   Bugfix: rotate -180 right joystick lag some time. by nobk(不坏)

It based on soarqin/fba-sdl, should be 0.2.97.44(with CPS3 ROM set but low fps), with hardware scaling full screen, and Rotate vertical game -180, right analog stick enable, lag fix.

Is there any improvement on game framerates?

Although this latest version which is based on 0.2.97.44 had improvements on CPS3 games, it actually had lower framerate on some PGM games, e.g. Bee Storm (DoDonPachi II) runs at 10++ fps on this version whereas the older FBA 0.2.97.35 I had runs it at 20++ fps.

I'm kinda stuck in the middle, I can run the Bee Storm at better framerate with 0.2.97.35 but it intermittently had no response on the right stick, or I run it on this latest version 0.2.97.44 with right stick fix but with lots of frame skips and slowdowns (barely playable) :(

Yes, working with screenshot preview. both on menu(press power button show menu, select"save satate") and in game(L1+R1+B). But take a snapshot will take longer time(2 seconds with game pause), to generate better quality .png images.

He's talking of dmitry's GCW0 port of FBA 0.2.97.35 :
https://github.com/dmitrysmagin/fba-sdl

nobk could try to use Profile Guide optimization to help speed things up but other than that there's not much he can't do without removing some cores or reverting to an older version of C68K. It's not surprising that the newer FBA is slower than the older one.

I guess the best short term fix would be to add 2nd analog stick support to the old FBA. However, i have no idea to what it should be mapped to.

How to check the release info? It only shows 0.2.97.35 Team FB Alpha. I can't remember where I download it from as I've downloaded quite a number of different builds in past 3 months. The file size is 4012KB if it helps.

The 0.2.97.35 version I had already supports the right stick with 180deg rotation as well, it's just that the stick intermittently looses response.

OK Great, I will try it... Thanks again

A great addition, I am always starting a 2 player game by mistake when exiting a game  ;D ;D ;D

Do you think it is possible to add "Animated GIF" to your next release of  FBA Arcade emulator ?  I would like to use something like GIF below. I have lots of Videos I can convert for almost all of the systems supported on the RG-350 and PocketGo 2 :)



Thanks

Confused, CPS3 runs at .44 speed, controls do not work in Sega games and have poor frame rates?

Delete function not working for me, it del the entry however not the file hence pops back upon cache rebuild

Sorry because fba all version share the same .fba config file, change ROM path only effect one version not possible. And I find my .35 opk only fix autofire, a patch to right analog still not apply to this opk, that means right analog still random lag while using autofire,. Maybe I will port .44 changes down to .35 later, let both of them using cached ROM list.

Just played through Bee Storm DoDonPachi II to the end. This special build seems to still have intermittent right stick not responding, but much less frequent than the older build.

Interestingly, I just noticed the first game DoDonPachi appeared in the PGM list for build 0.2.97.35 (I can launch and play it) whereas in build 0.2.97.44 it did not appear in the list for some reason.

Thanks. When you've done that, we'll have best of both worlds with 2 versions in the RG350, one that can play CPS3 at higher framerates and the other play other games at higher framerates.
