SNES9x (Super Nintendo Emulator) PS3 Port Arrives!


Sponsored Links
219w ago - 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.

Download: SNES9x (Super Nintendo Emulator) PS3 Port / SNES9x PS3 Port Source Code

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.

Try to delete the old application from within the XMB first, the install the PKG file for the new one. That should solve your problem.

been trying to update snes9x. i have 4.4.5. on 3.55 kmeaw. i assume i just need to run the newer package from the package installer but that did not work when i tried to go to 4.4.7. still shows up as 4.4.5 and the new shaders did not install.

Err... That won't happen, although the closest you would get is probably SSNES, it supports the same .cg shaders that S9x-PS3 does. Latest test builds of S9x-Win32 also supports it.
