Code:
Snes9x 1.56.1
- Automatic input rate now only works for close multiples   (BearOso)
  of 60Hz.
- Win32: Cheats are now shown in the correct order in the   (BearOso)
  list view.
- GTK+: Check for version greater than 3.22 when using GTK+ (BearOso)
  3.
- GTK+: Don't resize code and description field in GTK+ 2. (BearOso)


Another year, another Snes9x release. The main new features this time are GLSLP shader support for the GTK and Win32 ports (compatible to the retroarch format) and a new human readable cheat file format that supports longer descriptions and will be compatible with higan. Mightymo's cheat database is included in the release.
BearOso also did a lot of work to fix reported game issues, mostly with IRQ-related problems. For a full list check the changelog below.
Thanks to kps501 Snes9x now supports the curious M.A.C.S. rifle peripheral.

- Win32: Added ability to use GLSLP shaders with OpenGL,    (OV2)
  including a dialog to tweak custom parameters.
- GTK+: Added dynamic rate control support for audio to     (BearOso)

Post subject:  Re: Snes9x 1.56

Sweet a newer update :D

Just two questions though...

1. Can there be an option to choose between the new (SNES Buttons colors based) icon and the old (Super FamiCom buttons color based) icon? I know the emulator's name is snes9x but I really prefer the more colorful old icon than the new one.

2. Has the setting to prevent the emulator from creating ".oops" save files been implemented on this release already? Or do you still need to manually add "DontSaveOopsSnapshot = TRUE" onto the configuration file?

Post subject:  Re: Snes9x 1.56

will it ever be possible to add the ability to manually set the auto frame rate?

Author:  OV2 [ Tue Jul 17, 2018 1:39 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Snes9x 1.56

@CahosRahneVeloza: 1. the old icon was a controller on top of "9X" as text. I don't think we'll provide multiple icons. - 2. there is no ui setting, only the option in the config file.



@gamerX459: what exactly do you mean? You want to enter a framerate instead of using the +/- controls to speed up/slow down?

Post subject:  Re: Snes9x 1.56

Just noticed this. Awesome stuff, thanks.

Question though - Was this: viewtopic.php?p=32960#p32960 ever implemented in Snes9x (and a bugfix later posted by the user)?
Being able to open the .cht files in a text editor, and also able to add multiple codes at once, etc.

Right now I'm using the custom build that was supplied there, but I was wondering if that code was ever going to be implemented on future builds of snes9x as well.

Post subject:  Re: Snes9x 1.56

Not in the same way, but 1.56 has a new text based format that is compatible with higan:
Code:
- Improved cheats support. This stores cheats in a human-   (BearOso, OV2)
  readable and editable format as gamename.cht. Cheats are
  converted from the old format on load. They can be added
  in many different formats, but they will convert to the
  simple address=condition?byte format.
  Also, now included is mightymo's cheat database, and the
  ability to match a game and automatically load cheats
  from it.

I saw that there's a Github update mentioning 1.57. Does that mean there's a new release coming sometime soon?

Just curious. :)
