Version 1.0.21:

Fixes in slovak translation


Version 1.0.20:

Hello, hope you are all rested after Christmas:) We rested too, but not full time. We worked on new update which will make happy a lot of people. First I want to thank all people who worked on this version. I don’t know where should I begin. I want send my thanks to Laura for core implementation of xbox 360 joystick and similar devices. Making GUI was then easier part. Then Jiovial and all people who supported french translation on Magic dosbox has many texts and I know that translation was really hard task. Of course Alex, Richard, Benny and many others for testing and good ideas.

– Voodoo control – support for external joystick, look here
– Design mode – first half of update for design mode. Was redesigned floating toolbar and were added new functions for better layout designing. Functions are described here.
– french translation
– one new widget background
– fixed home key
– updated website

Unfortunately not all claimed functions or bug fixes are done yet, but we are working on it.


Version 1.0.19 :

Version 1.0.17 :

Hello friends, let me introduce new Magic Dosbox version. This update brings a lot of new features which affected almost every corner of this application. Big thanks to Alex for german translation. This was very hard task. One more thanks.

Version 1.0.16 :

This version introduce export/import game profile. It is first attempt to make mechanism for sharing game profiles between players. Importing from device with  other aspect ratio is not optimal, but we must start somehow.

– Export profile(both version)
– Import profile(donated version)
– Duplicate profile(donated version)
– rewritten double tap on key widget(both versions)
– master of puppets is more customizable(donated version)
– various bug fixes and improvements

Long press on game profile brings profile settings. Until now you could notice “delete” button on right bottom side of window. This button is obsolete now, instead it calls new options. Here you can export, delete and duplicate your profile.

Key widget can serve single tap – standard keyboard behavior and double tap which is useful when you don’t need quick reactions. Double tap worked, but this version improved reaction time and in addition you can set timer for custom use.

Master of puppets widget is more customizable. You can set opacity and custom middle crosshair.

There were some additional bugfixes and improvements. One of them fixed opacity crash on android 2.3.

Thank you Alex for testing and good ideas.
