    Cool! That was quick! Looking forward to playing Snes9x Next later today!

    Do you think it'll be this afternoon, evening...? Just wondering.

    Here is the upgrade package - you just unzip this in your RetroArch directory and when you start up RetroArch from Homebrew Channel, it will automatically upgrade the SNES9x Next core.

    ToadKing will be releasing a RetroArch 0.9.72 revision on the frontpage - the only change will be the new, fixed SNES9x Next core. All other stuff will have to wait for the next point release.

    SNES9x Next v1.52.2

    Nice, thanks for the release! :D I assume that, due to the numerous changes, save states are not backwards compatible, right? It's not a big deal, just curious.

    No, it should be compatible with the ones you created earlier on SNES9x Next. I don't make it a habit to break savestate compatibility or anything - it was just something that was not really thought out well back when I started SNES9x Next - plus savestates wouldn't be backwards compatible anyway because SNES9x 1.53 'obsoleted' a whole bunch of variables in the 'old' savestate format.

    Excellent, keep up the good work! I guess save states would have issues if a lot of code was changed.

    They were more like bug issues more than anything else.

    Is WiiBrew.org officially dead or is there something holding this back from being released there? Would be nice for new users to have it on the wiki layout there.

    Well, I was mostly referring to the Snes9x Next port as a whole; it's nice to see continuous interest in the emulation scene. Plus having an Snes emulator without frameskip is awesome.

    You might be able to contact an admin there...maybe.

    Seems to be the only Wii site that hasn't picked up on it at this point at least.

    Maybe I am doing something wrong and I was wondering if you could help me out. I extracted the RetroArch 0.9.72 revision into my Retroarch directory on my sd card and it did not seem to update the SNES9x Next to v1.52.2, it still says its v1.52.1.
    What could I be doing wrong? Thanks

    As soon as you launch the CORE.DOL file it should rename it from 'CORE.dol' to 'snes9x-next.dol'. From that point on - the old version should have been overwritten and you're now on the new one.

    You can also do this manually if you want by just renaming CORE.dol to the filename 'snes9x_next.dol' and deleting your old version.

    It's a wiki, not a news site. In most cases developers are responsible for creating pages for their apps.

    First off, I want to thank the devs for this great work of theirs. It's so nice being able to play multiplayer arcade games on my tv instead of my computer monitor.

    Second, I've been playing around and noticed that certain CPS2 games seem to be missing a button. For example, in D&D Tower of Doom, I can't select items regardless of my controller setup. I was wondering if that's happened to anyone else?

    Yes, I noticed it, too. In fact, player 2 to player 4 can select items normally except player 1. This is a tiny bug, I guess.

    It's good to know the issue isn't just on my end. Also, after some more fiddling I saw that some CPS1 games have this missing button as well. Specifically, there's no way to choose option 4 in Quiz and Dragons.

    They can wait along time for that to happen then for me to go to the effort of creating my own wiki pages for my own project on a totally separate site from my own. In any other scene, these things get created by the community - Elotrolado creates wiki articles all the time for every emulator release, including RetroArch 360/PS3/Xbox 1/Wii - never have I had to 'create' this stuff for myself.

    Anyways, if that is the only way it's going to happen, I don't think I'll lose any sleep over being excluded - 1.5% of Android scene sites publicizing RetroArch Android will get the project more exposure than a thousand Wii sites ever could, and that's where a large part of the focus is at for the next release.
