    Hi @Cluster

    Thank you for your hard work.
    Im looking to keep my mini snes as close to original operation as possible.

    I dont really want to play with adding retroarch/other emulators

    A few questions:

    Will the added games still work with rewind and save states?

    Which setting do i use to keep all the games scrolling like original - do i disable folders altogether or just set 100 games per page (i intend do add about 50 60 gamed or so)

    How many games can be added without errors in this manner?

    Will all their save state slots work if i add 50 games and dont use separate folders structure. Or only one save each due to space

    Is there an official list of games that dont work and am i best to wait for an updated version with game patches/fixes?
    I really want Super Street Fighter II like the japanese mini super famicom.. apparently it has problems on us mini snes. Or will the only resolve be retroarch emulation to be added? (No future rom patch plan)

    Thanking you

    To each their own I guess, but I still don't understand that preference.

    for top down games like raiden trad it works out pretty nice

    maybe not, but I have my ways. I couldnt possibly put --retroarch anywhere else

    Question.. just went with the web installer vs the normal unzip file.. why is it installing to C:\Users\{USERNAME}\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Alexey 'Cluster' Avdyukhin

    Just out of curiosity, why do you believe that it looks better?
    I can understand forcing 16:9 on older 4:3 3D games, because it increases the field of view, but with a 4:3 2D game, it just stretches the image out to fill the screen resulting in distorting the graphics.
    I just don't see any real benefit to doing this.

    If we use the 1boost-fx 2 does it affect all fx games, is there a way to only affect star fox and star fox 2?

    Now that Hakchi2 is officially released according to the github v2.20 or something I'm tempted to try it but I want to ask since I can re dump the original Kernel file and what not and even factory restore. Would my warranty still be voided? Even tho I wiped out any trace of the system being tampered with?

    I think I found my problem, since retroarch was in a folder it wouldn't install correctly, so snes9x was but not retroarch itself.

    It was exactly it. I could play all my faulty games though they aren't the exact same aspect ratio and I can't get into retroarch options now. (Dunno why, I guess reinstalling retroarch would reset its configs)

    Anyone know what aspect ratio to use so it's more consistant?

    I get that part but it doesn't look like a permanent modification if you can get the original Kernel back and then even factory restore the system as if fresh out the box? Or that's isn't exactly the case? It's not the original Kernel but a replacement that is just similar but still obvious if someone like Nintendo looked into it?

    SNES Classic - Dual Canoe & RetroArch Usage:)



    Even though you can command line it in latest Hakchi2, this is just one of my own personal methods of doing it:) Enjoy the video!

    I will show other methods of doing this tomorrow, such as the command line way:)

    Within the last hour a member of the snesmini reddit figured out how to get the SDD1 working so Street Fighter Alpha 2 is in play. It appears now to be assumed that whatever the WiiU/New3DS VC for SNES can run, so can this little box too. By that I think that means about 3-4 US SNES games won't work on it but everything else will.

    I saw in a previous post that someone was able to get Goof Troop to run on native emu, but whenever I load the USA version i get a blackscreen and C7, anything special that needs to be done for this one?

    Not sure if I did something wrong but just to clarify.

    I used the web installer and dumped the original kernel. No dump folder was made in the haxchi directory. I downloaded the zip version and did the same thing and that time I was able to dump the original kernel. Does the web installer dump the kernel somewhere besides documents/hakchi2?

    You can cheekily save quite a bit of space (like 30mb) if you add most of the 21 games back onto the snes classic and find some artwork on google and compress it.
    (Don't seem to work for LOZ:ALTP or Secret of Mana though so keep those enabled)

    Still at 180-odd games or so but now I'm only using 124mb.
