Subject description: http://www.zsnes.com/
 

Another forum member wanted this emulator so I compiled it and made up an icon for it,

First if you don't have SDLl installed, install the package below
Second install the ZSNES pet package
Enjoy::

Excellent. Do you have any other .pets of emulators? I would love some good Linux emulators of the old Ataris, Commodores, Coleco, NES, etc...

Thanks,
Dan

Steem is a Atari ST emulator. There is a Linux version available at the site. I have not tried it on puppy but it works great on kubuntu.

Hi,

first of all thanks for this perfect working PET !


Now I am searching for a Gameboy emulator, but nowhere I can find a compiled version Crying or Very sad

I found the one i attached to this post, but it is source.

I never before compiled software under Linux but I will give it a try.

If I'm successful, i will post it here, but i wont count on it Embarassed

Perhaps there is someone out there who is capable of this hard task for me, but likely piece of cake for him/her ?

PostPosted: Tue 11 Nov 2008, 16:52    Post subject: so...  

I think no chance for a newbie to linux like me.

no problem with setting up the compiling enviroment:
http://puppylinux.com/development/compileapps.htm

in bash gcc returns no fault.

if i unpack the tar.gz file there is a readme and in the readme I am told to look into the install file for further instructions.

Ok, but there is no install file..

so im stuck

after reading about an hour here and there i tried:

Code:

./configure
./configure --prefix=/usr


-> no such file or directory

Am I wrong or shouldnt there be a file called ./configure or something like that (DANGER NEWBIE ALERT)

but there isn't

takes to much time for me for installing such a mini program...


Tomorrow i will take a look for a deb file for it, perhaps there is a chance to get that installed Crying or Very sad

you need to read about "devx" devx is the compiler you need to install first before you compile. It also has to match your version of puppy.
once thats installed then you can use
#./configure --prefix=/usr --build=i386-linux
#make
#new2dir make install
Search the forum and read up on compiling, then download the sfs

as i wrote the compiling enviroment is working. I red many posts, but if you don't really know what you are doing...

I can't find a real good complete example/manual for compiling under puppy...sorry!

But here comes the clue. You don't need to compile the package. I'm not sure if i should Embarassed or Evil or Very Mad

I red the Readme and as i understood it, i had to compile it. Call me an idiot if you have to, I don't know better...

The solution is, in a console start it like this:

Code:
./VisualBoyAdvance nameofrom.gba


./ <- never had to use that

But I'm sure if some other newbie will find this post, it would be helpful.

Hi, thank you for zsnes!

I can't get it to work, as when I run it, it abruptly (fancy word user) closes. Sad

Code:
ZSNES v1.51, (c) 1997-2007, ZSNES Team
Be sure to check http://www.zsnes.com/ for the latest version.

This is a work in progress build. It contains code which
May or may not be complete

If this is supposed to be an official release, you forgot to
run configure with --enable-release, go rebuild.

Starting Mouse detection.
ManyMouse: 0 mice detected.

Audio Opened.
Driver: Simple DirectMedia Layer output
Channels: 2
Rate: 32000

ZSNES could not find any joysticks.
Illegal instruction


Here's the console thingie, in case you may want to help.

Thanks

PD: Not really a big deal to not be able to play znes, don't worry! Thank you for compiling it!

Are you using puppy 4.0 +
did you install SDL from the link above
if so, Once you fixmenus
and restart jwm

or reboot the pc, you'll have a icon in games to click on to start it.
I just tried it and it works fine Smile on series 4.0 +

Yeah, I can see it, but it closes.

I s'pose it's because I have PuppyMED instead of a regular 4.0.

Cheers

Thanks for the ZSNES. Had no problem getting it set up, however it's working a bit buggy. The graphics and sound are very jumpy, constantly slowing down and speeding up. Has anyone else had problems with this?

I have a laptop with a 1.8G single core processor and 1G of of RAM. On my old desktop I only had 128Mb of RAM and a 0.6G processor running Win98. And ZSNES ran much smoother on my old computer than on my new one. Also, I copied a ROM that I was half way done playing with from my old computer to a CD-RW and loaded it onto my new one running Puppy, but my save is missing. I think maybe because win98 used FAT32 and Puppy uses ext2(if I remember correctly) that it didn't load right. Could this also be why it runs poorly? I haven't tried running a ROM downloaded off the internet yet, just one that was on my old computer.

Thanks for the pet ttuuxxx.

BTW the zsnes team released a bugfix release for linux (1.5.1b)

Edit: It works great, even sound. Hopefully they will get the new qt based release finished soon.

Just installed and it works great on my computer.
The only thing is the netplay internet button is disabled Sad. Any way to fix that? I use this emulator mainly for the netplay between two computers.

If not, maybe an earlier version of ZSNES would have the netplay enabled. I looked at an old thread about 1.4.2 but it is a dotpup and the links do not work anymore.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=1209666544&t=5193

Does anybody have a good version with working netplay?

Thanks!
