Just another question for ya guys..

Those IRQ/APU changes. Is there anything in particular they improve? Game compatibility, etc?

Thanks

What APU changes are you referring to?

The IRQ changes fix or improve a few games, for example Sink or Swim, F1 Grand Prix, Battle Blaze.

nGlide or the Glide API is outdated. Use a Glide Wrapper or update your video card.

Hi guys it's me again.

I definitely confirmed that the IRQ timing changes do affect speed on the xbox. No biggy I have a special build for "Trusty box" users. So that makes three builds.. 1.51, 1.53, and 1.53 with the IRQ timing changes.

That brings me to another question. A beta tester confirmed an issue in Kirby Dreamland 3 on certain levels the music gets kinda slow and choppy. Gameplay speed to me seemed the same, but I could be wrong. In particular I'm thinking of the 3rd stage where there are clouds in the sky (rocks and witches).

Anywho x-ports version of snes9xbox was originally based on core version 1.42 and on his the game appears to run fine. So I'm just curious if any changes between 1.42 and 1.51 would affect that particular games speed so much. Just asking cause I wanna make sure I did not overlook or foobar something during the porting process.

Thanks. :)

Yup. The sound core has been entirely replaced since then. The new one is a lot more processor-intensive.

Sound core update is from 1.52 and on up.

I was referring to any changes made between 1.42 and 1.51 that may affect the speed of this particular game. Just in case I accidently foobared something I should not have.

You may turn off SA-1 timers; I don't know how they actually work (my code should be wrong) and I'm not sure which games actually use them.

Any suggestions? I'm looking thru the code but I'm not sure how to disable these SA1 timers you are referring to. :shock:

You may remove SA1.Cycles and its related functions like S9xSA1UpdateTimer() from 1.53 sa1.cpp.

oh.. those changes.. those were made after 1.52

I was looking in particular for any changes that may have occured between 1.42 and 1.51 that may affect the speed of this particular game. Just in case I accidently foobared something I should not have.

Thanks

Hi Zones,

I guess you can help me on this one; a while ago you gave me a command (on this forum) that I could run on Terminal on OS X to have Snes9x run with perfect 4x3 on fullscreen, but I lost it and I can't find my old thread, I guess it was deleted.

Do you remember what it was?

Thanks!

1.53: Click the text 'Aspect Ratio' (not the slider) and you get 4x3 screen.

Hey folks, I know it's been seven months since 1.53 was released so it is safe to say that most ROM compatibility issues have been reported to you guys & workarounds & fixes have been presented. However I seem to have encountered one, although it might be very well be just on my end.

The games are "Tetris Attack" (both U & E versions) & "Panel de Pon" (the original Japanese release for Tetris Attack). The issue is a minor screen flicker during the mid game cut scenes where Yoshi (or Lip) is traveling to & from each stage you beat & you encounter your next opponent. As I said, very minor as you can just skip the cut scenes altogether :)

Here is my Display settings, if the issue can be remedied by changing stuff a bit:

Noticed so far that the Windows port creates several file associations by default without asking the user. Any way to prevent this happening?

It doesn't directly create file associations, it registers itself as an "OpenWith" application for all its supported filetypes (which is necessary for the jumplist entries). It will never overwrite any association you might have set up yourself.


Yes, but it does also replace the icon and the file description. This behaviour is EXTREMELY irritating (and also inaccurate) if you are using multiple emulators and a generic extension (e.g. *.bin). Is there not more elegant way to deal with this, or at the very least a way to opt out of this new behaviour?

It registers the extensions listed in valid.ext, you can edit that file with notepad. I removed all generic extensions from that list, but I might have missed one or you might have that file from an old version.

Thanks for the quick response...

My 'Valid.Ext' is definatley the default 1.53 packaged one.

What is the purpose of this file? Is this also what Snes9X considers 'supported' file formats when opening?

Sorry for all the questions, just want to understand the behaviour before I start editing. Are the Y/N flags to indicate compressed or not?
