ZSNES updated to 1.4.20 (DotPup v002)
(thanks Alucard_the_dex for reminding me about that Smile)

Click the icon in my-roxapps to run ZSNES. Drag the icon to the desktop if you want a shortcut. Right click the icon for help. Installs in /root/my-applications/emulator/zsnes

You may want to change screen resolution to 640x480 (Start --> Setup --> Xvesa Video Wizard) for better game play. If you use Xorg you don't need to do this, the options you set in ZSNES (CONFIG-->VIDEO) will change the resolution for you.
To configure your input device, click CONFIG-->INPUT #1 (for player 1)

Roms are needed to play games. To uninstall, right click the zsnes icon in /root/my-roxapps,
choose 'Uninstall Zsnes'.

===============================================

Download:
http://freeforums.bizhat.com/index.php?mforum=com&act=Attach&type=post&id=229

These libraries are required:
libGL.pup, libsdl.pup (DotPup by GuestToo)
If you have installed Mplayer, you already have them.
Also need libstdc++.so.6.

If you have installed ZSNES before, you may want to backup your /root/.zsnes folder (just rename it).

Oh I forgot Embarassed
ZSNES is a very good emulator for SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System): http://www.zsnes.com
This is the second zsnes dotpup I made (1.4.2), the first one (1.4.0) is HERE

To play games you need the roms. For example this is a free legal one:
http://pdroms.de/database/files/SNES/Games/Pacman.zip
You can find more on THIS PAGE.

To play the rom you downloaded, open ZSNES, from the menu choose 'GAME' --> 'LOAD'. Then, highlight the rom you want to play and click the 'LOAD' button (bottom right).

You may need to configure the keys too (from the menu choose 'CONFIG'-->'INPUT').

For better video quality try the different settings in CONFIG-->VIDEO, I have Super 2XSAI checked. There you can change the video mode too (with Xorg I can play games in fullscreen).

ZSNES installs and runs fine but without a "gamepad" it's virtually unusable. Puppy recognizes my Thrustmaster gamepad upon bootup but I can't get ZSNES to use it. When I try to config the keys for Thrustmaster it does not respond. What gamepad are you using by the way? Is there a work around for my particular device? Thanks.

Me too Sad Puppy's USB Viewer shows the gamepad but I can't get work.

Maybe it's caused by Xorg? It seems that Puppy 1.0.7 (with Xorg) runs slower on my machine than 1.0.3 (without Xorg).

I should have mentioned that I found another link from another post before courtesy of MU but another link doesn't hurt. Wink

The only times I've come across weird fonts on snes rpgs is when they're translated unofficially. Romancing SaGa comes to mind....but that was on zsnes. I haven't tried Snes9x yet.

Zsnes definitely has a GUI. Did u download it from Puppian's link? I got mine from MU's site on http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Emulators/. Maybe give that one a go. It works for me except it doesn't recognize the directional pad on my Microsoft Sidewinder gamepad. Its still playable if you don't mind using the keyboard.

Hmmm..wouldn't have a clue about that. Maybe MU will see this post and shed some light into it. For me I just type 'zsnes' on the terminal and the gui pops up straight away...
