Re: Where is Linux OpenGL support?

The plain unix port is very bare, and opengl has not been included since 1.52. From the changelog: - Unix : Reconstructed and simplified all the contents. Some features have been removed to be simple, and many options have changed. GTK+ port is recommended for most of Linux users. (zones)

Re: [v1.53] Hotkeys not working on the assigned button(s) + J(3) instead of J(1)... How to fix?

Issue #1: make sure that

Code: Select all

[Controls\Win\Hotkeys]
Handler:Joystick          = ON
is set in the snes9x.conf file

Issue #2: That is simply the internal number your gamepad was assigned by windows, this is not something you can fix.


You might still want to upgrade to 1.60.

Re: any way to recover savestated sram data

You could check if there is a ROMNAME.oops snapshot in your saves folder, and try loading this one.

Re: Swap controller mappings

There is already an existing function to swap input between port 1 and 2 (by default mapped to number key 6 in the windows version):

Code: Select all

S9xApplyCommand(S9xGetCommandT("SwapJoypads"),1,0);
You could simply call this in your timer.

Re: More save state slots?

In the latest git build this has been expanded to 100 slots (10 banks of 10 slots each), which you can access from the menu or from the new save/load with preview dialogs:

Re: Checksum calculation

As long as the ROM has a size that is a multiple of 512KB, then this mirror algorithm is used (and it works the same below 1MB as above). If it is not a multiple of 512KB, then it simply calculates the sum over the whole orignial ROM size, without any mirroring. From the Checksum_Calculate function:...

Re: Checksum calculation

For non power of two sizes the idea is to take the largest power of two block, then look at the remaining size in power of two parts, and mirror until you have another block of the largest size. Then the end result is also a power of two. If you have multiple smaller parts you always mirror the smal...

Re: "Reduce Input Lag"

A rough description: it forces snes9x to wait until the current image has actually been drawn to the screen, so that the time it polls your controller presses is closer to what you actually see on screen than without it.

Re: Checksum calculation

There is no difference in the calculation for a 20MBit and a 27MBit ROM.

What caused you problems in checksum_mirror_sum? Maybe you can describe how you think it is calculated for a 20Mbit ROM?

Re: The AVI Recording Feature is Awful

The avi recording feature uses the old video for window interface to record and access codecs. If you install one that is available via that interface you can get an acceptable bitrate. For example you could install XVid, which still contains a vfw interface, or try x264vfw. You'll need the appropri...

Re: How To Rewind In Snes9x

You have to enable the rewind buffer in "Emulation->Settings->Rewind buffer size" (0 means disabled). Then you can rewind with the rewind hotkey ("r" by default).
