    Thank you both for the fast responses!

    When I referred to this translation as a "hack" I meant it more as simply a modification of an original ROM file; as if my memory is right, I've read several times how emulator developers usually don't like that much to modify their software to support hacks that may need special changes for them to work; and I thought this would be a similar case (even if translations are, normally, far more important than other types of modifications).

    I'll give Burnt Lasagna's modified emu a shot as soon as I have some free time, thank you. I guess it will need the extra files (xml, bml) too, right?

    EDIT: Hey, seems to work perfectly!

    I was kind of sceptical about the Real Time Clock working on a Wii emulator but alas, it seems to work fine, I entered the game at different times and once I load my game and look at the menu, the time is the one on the system!

    Thank you so much again, Burnt Lasagna. I only have one question more: If I had to change the Wii's hour and date, would that affect my ability to continue using that save file?

    Yeah. Snes9x GX seems to use the date and time you set in the game but uses the Wii's internal clock to make up the difference after each shut off. Changing the Wii's time later will mess up the time in the game, in my testing.
    Though you can make a backup of your .srm save, re-set the real time clock (with new Wii clock settings), then restore the save to fix this issue.

    I waited to check this with the change of hour here where I live.

    It seems that changing the hour of your Wii does not cause problems if the hour you change into is a later one that the hour in your save file (or maybe on the emulators RCT?), and seemed fine.

    The game had 28-10-17 10:33 PM, and I changed the Wii at 29-10-17 01:06 AM, to 00:06 AM, and booting the game showed the hour correctly ingame without doing anything.

    So that's pretty cool!

    Do you think it could be possible to add an overclock feature to snes9x gx? a lot of snes games would benefit from a bit of overclock...

    There already is an FX Overlock feature, to help with FX games.

    Sure, but there are a lot of non superfx games that have massive slowdown... I'm wondering if it's possible to verclock the main snes cpu to improve those games

    Massive slowdowns? For example? I haven't had any kind of minor speed issues with any other games except the SuperFX ones, and even with those, i've finished Star Fox 2 at least 15 times.

    @niuus I think Valken refers to slowdowns on games that happened on real snes hardware, not due to snes9x-gx issues or Wii limitations. Those exist and could be addressed on some cases by a CPU overclocking feature if it would be added to snes9x-gx

    Exactly. A lot of snes games (almost all the shmups, for instance) have slowdowns on the real hardware (as well as on snes9xgx).
    Maybe a small overclock of the main cpu could avoid these slowdowns, improving the original gameplay.
    Just i don't know how to implement this feature in snes9x gx binary.

    Oh, cool, that makes more sense. It would certainly be pretty nice. I think GenesisPlus GX recently implemented that feature.

    So ive been trying to get my "fake" wiiu pro controller to work with this release without luck, my wiiu pro controller works for every game in wiiu mode and also sinks perfecty with vWii.
    Does anyone know a solution for this, or is there anywhere a release wich do support third party wiiu controllers, would love to have that working :)

    Thanks for listening
