I've updated to 2.5.1.1a, although it's only starting with a 20% rollout.

If anyone gets it could they please report that it's working? If it looks good I'm going to increase the rollout to everyone.

Hi Exophase,
I played on the previous DraStic version, just before the update, on my Nvidia Shield TV, and it was working perfectly.
But the app did update automatically to the new version 2.5.1.1a and now the app crash when i want to go to the options menu and the 4 shoulders buttons on my Nvidia Shield Controller (the buttons similar to L1, R1, L2, R2 on Playstation) doesn't work anymore. So no options menu, and no buttons for fast forward, stylus click, L and R buttons of the DS...
I tried to uninstall and install the app again from the Play Store of the shield but there are the same problems.
So what should i do? Can I download the previous version apk on internet and sideload it without any license problems?
Or have I to wait for another update? (Hopefully there will be an update in the upcoming days)

Thanks in advance for your answer dear Exophase, and thank you for your hard work on this emulator.

Does this version include the official Spanish translation?
It does, forgot to list it.

EDIT: Never mind, it was accidentally excluded. It'll be in an update shortly.
Oh, well, better late than never. :D

I noticed something minor, the changelog inside the app is not updated

Will 64bit improve performance? I own a 64bit phone which runs everything I threw at it full speed even with filters + hd rendering so I won't be affected but my brothers phone is weaker and lags with the hd rendering option.

It's impossible to really say right now but I wouldn't expect much difference in performance.

Ok I see.

I forgot to ask something else, will this emulator become free when it goes open source?
If it does please remove the license check and all the rest DRM, what I love in computer emulators is how you just install/unpack them and play offline but in Androids case some emulators like yours require that one internet check every time I do a fresh install and in my case both of my internal storage and SD card are always full (thanks to the big sized GameCube and PSP games and now 3DS! for the Android Citra) so I have to constantly uninstall apps I don't use and i might always have a internet connection to pass this one time license check but who knows what might happen in the future, I don't want to be locked from using the app I bought and I don't plan on rooting my phone to bypass the license check with illegal ways nor use the cracked apks with broken settings and God knows what else.

If it stays a paid app I would still love to see the license removed, it's not like it's hard to bypass it so its only a pain in the butt for paying customers.
(Incase anyone thinks I'm a pirate who wants to fool Exophase or something, I can provide proof of my purchase 😄)
