Final Burn Alpha Available for Android!

We have all seen our share of emulators for the Android platform. Name the vintage console of your liking, and there is bound to be either a native emulator for it on Android or a ported one from its PC counterpart. In fact, Capcom system games also have an emulator available thanks to XDA Forum Member Cpasjuste. However, this one has a few limitations in what it can do compared to other, more capable options on PC. Because of this, the dev decided that he wanted to be able to play games as if using one of the famous PC CPS emulators on his Android device(s). And just like that, Final Burn Alpha for Android went from being a dream to a reality.

Here’s a quick run through this emulator: It is used to emulate the systems used by several arcade machines used to play Capcom games such as Marvel vs Capcom, Street Fighter (any version), and several others. FBA emulates the machines and allows any device running this program to launch images or ROMs (a concept that we are all mildly familiar with) to enjoy said games. This app will allow you (once completed) to run CPS1, 2, and 3 ROMs, as well as some of your favorite NeoGeo, Sega System 16, and System 18 games, and many more.

The dev is up to version 1.2, and as such there are some bugs present. Please help the dev out by testing the app. Just remember, please DO NOT ask for ROMs in open threads since they are copyrighted content, and as such ARE treated as warez on XDA. Feedback, as always, is highly appreciated.

Hi !

I couldn’t wait anymore to share my current progress on porting Final Burn Alpha on our android devices since it’s now in a good shape. There’s still some work to do (see todo list next). 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.

You can find more information in the original thread.

I/O Summary: Google Cardboard Virtual Reality

One year ago, Google introduced cardboard. Amazingly enough, that was all it took to fire up the Virtual Reality scene on Android, and what began as an open design concept exploded into thousands of apps and dozens of headsets from big and small vendors alike. Now, there are more than 1 million cardboard viewers/handsets - a Google-quoted number that might not even be accurate given the ease with which headsets can be rigged through off-the-shelf equipment. This year, cardboard returned...
