SNES9x (Super Nintendo Emulator) PS3 Port Arrives!


Sponsored Links
209w 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.

I see. I think I know the issue, but will need some testing on my Win7 partition. We will probably have to add some sort of buffer size option since it is perhaps set too low at the moment. Hopefully this is fixed in next release.

Hi!

My OS is Vista Home Premium x64. The latter where is audio is coming through with lots of crackles, etc.

RSound is pretty much the coolest app I've come across in years. I would love it in every ps3 app, or any app for that matter, one could wish for it built into a CFW or XBMC! Thanks again!

Hi. The audio core in 4.4.5 is changed somewhat so that could certainly explain the errors you're having. To help you further I need to know some things:

- Operating system
- Is the audio complete noise, or is the audio somewhat intact just with lots of crackles and stuff?

Many thanks squarepusher, this is really turning into something special.

Is there any chance that you could include some custom filters/shaders in future builds if possible, for example a combination of WarpSharp & 4x Soft HD or a way of using more than one at once?
