Great to have resumed development, anyway thank you for everything you have done so far.

After test I think that the beta version works well ;) just a pity that backups do not work for disk system games, and some disk system sounds do not sound very good, is it serviceable ?

otherwise, if you agree, I enclose the source files with the updated palettes in case you want them integrated in the official version (I made txt files that will tell you what I deleted and added), for you to see ;)

Thank you so much Tantric for the new fresh update! Will test it today :) I hope you can do the same with VBAGX

The new FCEUGX runs really great, thanks, tho I have some issues and suggestions

The first being in Settings the "Go Back" button is highlighted by default whereas in other menus and SNESGX Settings the first sub-folder is highlighted which should be the way with FCEUGX for consistency with menus

Second the Zapper is a bit too sensitive to control with the GameCube controller and would be good if the crosshair moved slower across the screen

Another thing is a suggestion for "Vertical" to be the default cropping as this is how a CRT television crops the display, like in Super Mario Bros the bottom tiles on the first level would be halved tho you would still see the width of the display

I noticed 1 more thing while testing and comparing with VBAGX and SNESGX

FCEUGX has no Cover and Artwork directories in "Saving & Loading" Settings, and in "Menu" Settings there is no Preview Image option for Screenshots, Covers, Artworks, tho it is present in both VBAGX and SNESGX

Were those features ever introduced in FCEUGX or VBAGX? I think they were only added on Snes9xGX

Its in the latest SNESGX and VBAGX, I think with the tweaks to FCEUGX I mention in my past 2 posts FCEUGX would be perfect and equivalent with the other GX emulators

Tested several games Tantric, they are working perfectly! Many thanks! One question about the familiar 'edited versions of certain Konami games' problem, like english translations for japanese konami games, games like Ganbare Goemon Gaiden 2: Tenka no Zaihou that are translated in english don't work on a lot of emulators, including FCEUGX (here is the project page: http://www.romhacking.net/translations/3748/), i've tested the game with the PC version of FCEUX and it is working, is it easy to add compatability for the Wii version with these kind of games?

I hate to say it but i have a problem with version 3.4.0, when i play a game for a long time and exiting FCE Ultra GX afterwards, i got a black screen and can only go back to the loader (in this case the last version of USB Loader GX) by a hard reset, got the settings in the menu set to 'exit to loader'. I don't have this problem with newest SNES GX and VBA GX, does somebody else have this problem too or is just me?

Thanks for including my command line arguments patch in new builds!

One of these days I should post a tutorial on using Homebrew Channel as an ersatz game launcher like I do.
