ZSNES team:

"Wake your children up, it´s here!

Please read: http://www.zsnes.com/index.php?page=news

The release is r4490.

If the homepage download links aren´t updated by the time you read this, go directly to our page on Source Forge."

I´m pleased to announce the 73rd release of ZSNES - ZSNES v1.51.

This release is mostly a bunch of bug fixes for things new and altered in v1.51.

On the emulation side of things, we now finally have 224 lines displayed correctly, and some minor timing fixes. Major emulation core changes won´t be until a future release.

I would like to thank all those who reported bugs and sent in patches for v1.50, we´ve fixed roughly 3 dozen problems that cropped up with v1.50, including issues with loading older save states and various save state saving/loading problems, so this release should now be quite stable.

For SDL users who had sound issues before, we´ve made some fixes to that, as well as added support for libao sound output. Run configure with --enable-libao to get the new sound options compiled in. See zsnes --help for a list of drivers you can use. Feel free to play with each one and see which works best for you, there should be something to make everyone happy. Note however that certain older Linux versions have a bug in their threading which would cause all libao drivers to not output sound. If you´re having such an issue, install a new Kernel.

Also requested many times in the past was separate input for each game. I´m pleased to announce that with our new PSR language, adding this greatly desired feature was a cinch, so enjoy!

Lastly, people who have enjoyed the movie features with v1.50 should be happy to see that we´ve expanded them even more. For those of you dumping to raw or AVI, you´re now able to specify a logo file to use in the config file. You´re now also able to dump past the end of a ZMV.

And saving the best for last, there is now a custom multipass lossy dump option with decent default settings so you can dump really tiny good quality AVIs of your runs (and tweak dumping settings to your heart´s content in zmovie.cfg).


To those packaging releases for your distro, please see the notes for v1.50. Also make sure you review the configure options to provide the best build for your users. And please please include the documentation, located in docs/readme.txt and docs/readme.htm.

Also im About-Fenster wird wirklich immer geschlampt.

Man wird immernoch angewiesen die License.txt zu lesen, nur ist die in dieser Version nichtmehr enthalten.

Also ich finde es sehr ärgerlich auf eine Datei verwiesen zu werden die nicht exisitiert.
Nicht dass ich großes Interesse an den Lizenzbestimmungen habe, aber da geht es um das Prinzip.

Irgendwie läuft die Version nicht gut bei mir. Es ruckelt in unbestimmten Abständen... und... irgendwie klappt das nicht so gut.

Ich bleibe bei 1.50. Die läuft viel besser... vllt bin ich auch zu unfähig...

Beachte mal die zsnesw.cfg Datei (zu öffnen mit dem Editor) folgende Punkte:

- ; Force Refresh Rate (0 = NO, 1 = Yes)
; Enable this if you are experiencing visual tearing
; WARNING: Setting a refresh rate that your monitor cannot handle will have
; consequences! The DX Refresh Rate Override in dxdiag must be set to default
; in order for this to work! The refresh rate is only valid if it is supported
; by your system! This option is only useful in fullscreen modes.
ForceRefreshRate=1 <--- wenn "0" dann auf "1"
SetRefreshRate=60

Und Triple Buffering aktivieren, dafür vsync deaktivieren!

Folgendes funktioniert eigentlich ohne Probleme bei mir:

Stationärer Computer mit Röhre
    640x480 DS F
    Interpolation
    KitchenSync = 1 120 Hz für NTSC
    KitchenSyncPAL = 1 100 Hz für PAL
    Triple Buffering = 1 setzt automatisch VSync außer Kraft
    VSync = 1 für den Fall, dass ich in den Windowed Mode wechsle
    Auto Frame Rate = 0
    Frame Rate = 0


Laptop mit LCD
    1024x768 DS F native Auflösung
    Interpolation
    KitchenSync = 0
    KitchenSyncPAL = 0
    Triple Buffering = 1 setzt automatisch VSync außer Kraft
    VSync = 1 für den Fall, dass ich in den Windowed Mode wechsle
    Auto Frame Rate = 0
    Frame Rate = 0

Y'Know, I just noticed this. WTH are you talking about? Of course it's in the release. If you can't find it, you either need glasses, or learn how to navigate a zip file.

Mmmh...
