SNES9x PS3 4.4.3 - Super Nintendo Emulator for PS3 is Updated


Sponsored Links
189w ago - Today squarepusher2 has updated the Super Nintendo Emulator PS3 port to SNES9x PS3 4.4.3 for Firmware 1.92+, 3.15, 3.41 and GeoHot PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware 3.55.

Download: SNES9x PS3 4.4.3

To quote on the SNES9x PS3 changes: Build 4.4.3 (11-01-2010)

  • Autodetection of Super Scope/Mouse/Multitap had a bug in it - after you loaded a Super Scope/mouse game and then tried to load a multitap-compatible game, the game would attempt to hook up the Mouse/Scope instead due to an error in a switch/case statement. Fixed this.


  • Autodetection now works as expected. Please upgrade to 4.4.3 as soon as possible to avoid inconvenient problems.

Finally, below is SNES9x PS3 4.4.2 (FW 1.92+/FW 3.15/FW 3.41/Geohot CFW 3.55) with the changelog that we missed reporting on previously.

SNES9x PS3 4.4.2 Changelog:

* Super Scope and SNES Mouse support. The Super Scope and the Mouse are currently
mapped to the left analog stick - the controls are -
- Circle Button - Scope Toggle Turbo
- Cross Button - Scope Cursor Button
- Triangle Button - Mouse R Button - Scope Aim Off Screen
- Square Button - Mouse L Button -Scope Fire
- Start Button - Scope Pause Button
* Automatic Super Scope/Mouse support detection (works for most games)
* Automatic multitap detection (for most games)
* Automatic PAL50/PAL60 switching (for 576p PAL resolution only)
* Only shows toggleable resolutions now in the Settings menu that your TV supports.
* Fixed Syvalion/R.P.M. Racing/Power Drive (games use 512x448 - flickered
like mad before)
* Added .GD3 ROM extension.
* Added configurable controls - nearly any button/button combo can be
configured. All of the configurable settings are saved of course.
* Some of the new things you can 'bind' buttons to:
- Record movie
- Stop movie
- Playback movie
- Fast forward
- Increase fast-forward speed
- Decrease fast-forward speed
- Reset
- Soft Reset
- Some more shaders (Lanzcos12/Lanzcos16/SuperScale2x - you've probably seen them already in Genesis Plus/FBA et al - that's because they all use the same shaders from Cellframework.)
- Sane parental control defaults (you can use this when parental control is enabled at highest level).
- You can set the SRAM path directory now.

Update #2: squarepusher2 has released several more updates to SNES9x PS3, the Super Nintendo Emulator for PlayStation 3, which are all available for download now HERE.

Update: A new SNES9x r2 binary is now available with changes noted HERE followed by a SNES9x v1.0.3 port by Alex793 which includes some more fixes for those interested.

I got my Teensy++ Thursday and decided to port SNES9x (Super Nintendo Emulator) over to the PS3 as a little exercise to play with the Cell SDK.

It's pretty rough but it seems to work OK. It will load (uncompressed) ROMs off of /dev_usb000.

If anyone is interested, the code is linked above via GitHub with a binary attached below.

It's a new port to PS3 LV2 OS based on the vanilla SNES9x source.

To build:

- Install Cell SDK >= 1.92. You know how to find it. Configure according to the install instructions (make sure to set CELL_SDK).
- Make pkg
- Load the pkg and your ROMs onto a usb drive.
- Install on PS3 using your jailbreak device of choice.

Things that suck:

- Lots of SNES9x features are not supported yet. No save states, for example. Most of these are really simple to implement.
- Sound code is rubbish. It more or less works, but you'll probably hear the occasional skip.
- Performance isn't great.
- UI. Or rather, there isn't one.
- So much more.
