-UPDATE 9-28-17 (Will be integrating secondary Arcade Set, with 7zip compression. This is only to cover games that would most benefit it, such as Metal Slugs, and other Neo-Geo Titles! This pic will also show you my progress with a Sega CD Test, with better compression. Expect the compiled core to be updated within my Mega HMOD Thread, tomorrow
Sega CD has more working games, now, as a result of this better compression! You can read my latest Mega HMOD Thread post to have more details about my HMOD Progress. As far as V2.5 release, it will be...........tentatively, Friday October 6th!!!! I need this one last week to be satisfied with the end result! Thanks for your patience!!! Good luck in acquiring an SNES Classic tomorrow, if you hadn't already gotten one through Best Buy, etc!
-UPDATE 9-28-17 (Those of you who already have experience with modding on the NES Classic, will notice 2 special things about the photo.
- I have several of the "same" game added via hakchi2. Normally, when adding the same game, it is overwritten by the same game! I never really cared about having the same game twice. But, now, there are reasons to, such as being able to run it on multiple cores without changing command line, hard coded game genie codes (in the case where you want to have children have an easier time at a game, since it may be like training wheels to them, emulation wise!), translations, hacks, and so on. In this case, Double Dragon is one of the best examples of a rom set that very rarely changes! It works in MAME 2003, MAME 2010, FBA, and FBA 2012! One of my next videos will showcase this little trick on adding the same game as many times as one would like to!
- I am always trying to better compression techniques. You can see the varying degrees of compression with Metal Slug 4/5, and a test Sega CD game! I have been very partial to MAME 2003 as my primary core. But, enough people have branched out into FBA, to warrant me working more with additions of games for it. FBA has the nice little perk of handling 7zip compression. As far as Sega CD, you can plainly see the nice incremental gains! Yes, we will be running Sega CD & Neo-Geo on the SNES Classic in no time! I have compiled the ability to run this better compression for Sega CD onto the NES Classic, for now Snatcher is one game that gets privileged to run in full, untouched, glorious form, on the NES Classic...with this Update! I will release the Core soon Additionally, another thing I have put together is the ability to use Cheats with Neo-Geo Games! That will be in a, soon to be released video, as well! I will impart my experience and wisdom to all of you and make the necessary files available to run the Games. And, I will constantly update said files, to better the NES/SNES Classics, as much as possible. But, as far as "getting" the games. That will be on you
As of right now, I have compression working for every single system it can handle. Only 4 do not support compression, yet! Sega Saturn, 3DO, ImageViewer, and OST Player. I can potentially get compression going with Sega Saturn and 3DO. But, they run slowwwww! Do not expect great things with either of those! But, every other system, wonders can be done with, as you will see in the very near future! Feel free to check out some of my videos, to see some of the work I have done with the NES Classic. These will all apply to the SNES Classic, soon!
I will also continue to backwards support the NES Classic, period! So, relax, as far as that is concerned
I will be working with both systems!
GOOD LUCK to all of you trying to acquire an SNES Classic!!! I hope you ALL get one! I do not want to find out about any of you being disappointed, and being at a loss...as far as obtaining a system!
