No

See the forum thread https://sourceforge.net/projects/javagb/forums/forum/789924/topic/3432585. Scrolling through the menu items works fine, but selecting an item does not seem to be possible, rendering the whole emulator useless for the SE W890i and the SE C702.

    I added a screenshot below, which illustrates which key is used on the SE emulator I use for development. On the emulator this key or the central navigation key can be used to select a menu item. Can a menu item be selected on a W890i or C702 using this key?

    That's weird since the new menu is basically only a listbox control. And that again has been used in previous versions, e.g. version 1.4.x had such a listbox in place to select the game to play. Did this work in version 1.4.x on your phone?

    The menu worked in v1.3.x and1.4.x on my SE W890i

    Yes, but did also the game selection work i.e. could in version 1.4.x use the menu item "Play" and then select and start a game? The latter part is the important one, since the selection of a game is also a listbox control, like the menu is in version 1.5.x.

    I don't know what do you mean exactly.
    But it doesn't matter if I press the navigation key (middle) or press "5" to come into the gameselection (v1.4).

    [The following is in German but basically only repeats the previous posting]
    So, mal in Deutsch:
    In der Version 1.4.x ist die Spielauswahl, nachdem man den Menüpunkt "Spielen" gewählt hat, auch ein Listbox-Control. Ich frage mich daher, ob es bei denjenigen, die mit dem Menü der Version 1.5.x Probleme haben, möglich war in der Version 1.4.x ein Spielzu auszuwählen und zu starten. Zur Spielauswahl zu gelangen war zweifelsfrei möglich. Interessant ist halt der Punkt danach, nämlich ob die Spielauswahl selber möglich war, denn diese ist auch - wie das neue Menü - als Listbox-Control gestaltet. Und ich frage mich, ob das C702 und das W890i generell mit dem Listbox-Control ein Problem haben.

    In v1.4 I can choose a game without problems

    OK, thanks for the information. I'll go and see whether I can find any difference between the listbox code in the new menu and in the game selection.

    One more question:
    In version 1.5, is it possible for you to navigate into the Bluetooth submenu (the one where you have Send file and Receive file as menu items)? Or can you only move over the Bluetooth menu item and upon selection nothing happens?

  • I can move over the menu item but i can't enter the submenu.

    Along with that problem I can't left the program the normal way (press the red key and then choose shutdown program).
    I must open the dialog active application (right under the green key http://i.expansys.com/i/b/b166497.jpg\) and then I can finish jmeboy.

    The attached zip contains a JMEBoy version where I did some modifications to the menu, in the hope that these changes make the menu work on the C702 and the W890i. Can you confirm that the menu now works?
