I added a few more odds-and-ends, and removed the cheats stuff (I need to rethink how to write the interface for them, since there are a lot of entries in the cheats file, and the cheat descriptions are too long to fit on a normal option list.. probably need something with a dialog box).  Anyway, Brock started a thread about that, so I won't go into it too much here.  I haven't built the Xpria Play branch yet, but it should only take a few minutes now that the project is arranged more nicely.  If there is anything I forgot to add to this update that I said I was going to, please let me know and I'll take care of it.

also: will you make something like a touch controls position changer? would be nice for people that can't use buttons and are forced to touchscreen (i hate that z button's position, i'm using volume key for it anyway)

Changing button positions straight from a menu option (something like FPse) would be a nice feature, but there is currently a method to change the position of your controls.

You can customise a particular gamepad by editing the pad.ini file inside the appropriately named gamepad folder in the (sdcard\)Android\data\paulscode.android.mupen64plus\skins\gamepads directory.
This thread details the process of customising: http://www.paulscode.com/forum/index.php?topic=95.0

Or if you're lucky there might be a custom gamepad that you want to use somewhere in this thread: http://www.paulscode.com/forum/index.php?topic=221.0

(A bit late, I know, but hopefully it helps)

If anyone in the credits wants your full name rather than your nickname, let me know, and I'll update them.  Also, there are a LOT of people who have contributed to this project, so if I left your name out of the credits and you think you should be in there, please let me know and I'll add you.

I posted the update.  Might take a few minutes for it to show up in the Android Market.  There have been a lot of changes, so if anyone has problems, let me know and I'll fix them right away.  In particular, I'd like to make sure the Xpria Play branch is working (launcher icon, button mappings, and Restore Default Settings mainly)

Nice work on the latest update Paul, I haven't noticed anything unusual yet (main branch).

I was wondering if you were eventually going to add default gamepads that are more compatible with the Galaxy Nexus's screen in the initial/default app set-up.  I think some Galaxy Nexus owners might be a little deterred from using the emulator because the default buttons are so tiny on the device.  I enlarged the default gamepads and posted them here if you wanted to include them.

..Unless there is a setting for the Galaxy Nexus and I'm just missing it lol :s

we should actually start a thread dedicated to gameplay design for individual devices. First post can hold a list of devices which users can select (click on) their device and view and download gameplay styles for their particular device.

hmmm, could be helpful. Give me 24 hours and I'll give an example ( I'll post my example in this thread an let everyone vote before I start anything official)

Thanks, MattyGlen.  Tripod, I have gotten complaints the other way too (that there are too many layouts shipped with the app, and it should be customized through settings/ checkboxes instead).  I might still inclide one more layout, though since a lot of new devices have really high resllutions for their size (making the controlls very tiny)

Sounds great.  Would this also include optimal settings for certain plugins for particular devices too or just gamepad layouts?  Everyone could find what settings seem the most efficient on their particular device and contribute to the thread.

I have gotten complaints the other way too (that there are too many layouts shipped with the app, and it should be customized through settings/ checkboxes instead).  I might still inclide one more layout, though since a lot of new devices have really high resllutions for their size (making the controlls very tiny)
I thought that may have been the case as I also agree with the complaints.  I assumed it would take a bit of time to implement and that optimisations and such would be a higher priority than this function for the app.  I was merely suggesting a temporary fix for phones with higher resolutions, but it would be great to be able to select the screen resolution or device name in settings which would automatically select the correct gamepads and possibly hide/delete the rest.

wow! I should read back my posts before contributing...... ( I blame my Xperia Play stock Rom) please insert "gamepad" instead of "gameplay" in my previous post.
Starting development now, it's 11:50pm now, I'll work till 12:30-1:00 then I'll finish off tomorrow morning. how's that for minute to minute updating..... hmmmm, no one cares Matt. Hahahaa

This would more focus on gamepad layouts, optimized for in-particular devises. Optimal settings would be more pointed to the compatibility thread avenue sinse i have a very few games on N64 that i own

Which ROM? It's possible that ROM is not yet compatible, or emulator closes itself as it doesn't have enough memory.
