Hello. I have succeeded in running some BS-X/Satellaview games using Snes9x 1.54.1 on Arch Linux, as per instructions in unix/docs/readme_unix.html. Thank you for maintaining Snes9x. It is a great piece of software.

I generally use Snes9x's GTK front-end (snes9x-gtk), as the plain executable (snes9x) spawns screen-sized windows with -fullscreen, instead of actually running fullscreen. In addition, the video image is not stretched to full size.

Today, however, I noticed the plain executable is capable of running a few BS-X/Satellaview games that the GTK version is not. When snes9x-gtk attempts to run these games, it produces a black screen and no sound. No errors appear on the command line. I thought perhaps an option enabled in snes9x.xml might have been the culprit (as only snes9x-gtk reads this), but deleting that file and running snes9x-gtk results in the same black screen.

Any insight would be appreciated.

Two such titles are BS Zelda no Densetsu Remix (J) and BS Fire Emblem Akaneia Senki 1 - Palace Kanraku (J). Please private message me, if you require further explanation.

Have you seen if the games will run on a "1.55" binary compiled from the master source branch?

Thanks for the tip. I had high hopes, as I didn't realize there was a newer version. Is it official? Snes9x's web master should consider mentioning something on the front page or at least the news section.

Sadly, the game still did not run. The only difference was the following error message (which appeared three times):

Code:
Unable to find msu file /home/user/.snes9x/patch/BS Fire Emblem Akaneia Senki 1 - Palace Kanraku (J).msu1.


The game still runs fine with regular ("unix") Snes9x. I'll compare config/make files and see if I can't pinpoint a cause.

Yes, that is the official master source branch for Snes9x.

I was able to get Fire Emblem to run on GTK+. All I needed was to have the BS-X.bios file in the same directory as the ROM image. I don't have a version of BS Zelda like you specify.
