    Snezziboy DS Progress Update

    SNES emulation on the DS

    Progress on snezziboy DS is continuely being made although snezziboy developers bubble2k and gladius have been extremely busy and occupied with other things.

    "The work-in-progress of 0.27 has an overhauled graphics engine which seems to be running ok on the DS with sound. But there are other enhancements that are slated for this release, which I still would have to implement, " said bubble2k over at the pocketheaven forums.

    Many will be happy to hear that in this new version 'Chrono Trigger' actually boots correctly with sound. However the sound is rather garbled.

    No word on whether the emulator has any speed updates but it was said that 0.27 will only run on the DS (there won't be a GBA version of 0.27) as it takes advantage of the extra power the DS brings.

    A vague October release for the improved snezziboy DS has been cited.

    Awesome news, I've been following the SNES on DS emulation scene for a while now, and it's finally paying off. Hats off to bubble2k and gladius, as well as all the others who have helped!

    Chrono trigger and Shadowrun on the DS would rock.

    Shadowrun is working on the current build. The screen gets garbled at times though (portraits in the menu), but it is playable.

    i couldn't get chrono trigger (U)[!] to boot. anyone else have anyluck with this?
    steps i took
    -copy *.smc file into same directory
    -drag *.smc file into the .exe program
    -burn new *.smc.gba onto EZ2 cart without loader

    [edit] it seems the .zip 's dont come with the *.dat file. Is this needed for this release ver.?
    [edit2] well seems i was using the old release, i found the newer version that wasn't on the main page version 0.26 HERE.
    but when i followed the steps now it wont boot on the DS, though it boots as a gba game inside the GBA frame. [not too sure how that makes it snezzids]
    anyways it's fairly garbled in most spots yet the main map is near perfect. cutscenes and text are near impossible to read.and when i got into the fair i couldnt move after i walked in. [​IMG]

    But hey it boots and that means there is some progress happening, nice work none the less.
    verdict; [​IMG]
    Chrono Trigger (U) - boots but is unplayable

    I'm running SuperCard SD on DS.phat & another SuperCard DS.Lite (MicroSD) on DS.Lite
    Both firmware are 1.63

    I couldn't get Snezzi 0.26 version which was posted on sourceforge to work.
    So I used the Snezzi 0.25a that was linked in this topic's MAIN POST by Opium.

    Snezzi DS v0.25a (sound version)

    1. Extract "snezzi.exe" and "snezzi.gba" to a new directory. (I called mine, "SNES")

    2. Find your SNES Game ROM images someplace (SNES Rom-Reader, WWW Search Engine, NNTP, IRC...etc). The extension for the SNES Game ROM images will be " .SMC " -- So if you are looking for the US version of "Darius Twin", it could be called "Darius Twin (U).smc"... another example would be "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV - Turtles in Time (U).smc" for TMNT IV.

    3. Take your *.SMC image files and put them all into the "SNES" directory you created in step 1.

    4. Highlight and drag (up to 18 *.SMC files at a time) over the "snezzi.exe" file.

    5. A DOS window will apear and several lines will flash by for a few seconds. After the DOS box dissapears, you will notice that there are several new " .GBA " files which have been created in your "SNES" directory.

    6. Create a new directory. (I created a sub-directory and called it "NDS".)

    7. Copy all of those newly created " .GBA " files into your newly created "NDS" sub-directory.

    8. Rename all of the " .GBA " files to " .NDS ". -- So if your file was "Mortal Kombat (U).smc.GBA", it should now be named "Mortal Kombat 1 (U).smc.GBA.NDS" (you can call it whatever you want to call it, as long as the extension is " .NDS "... "Mortal Kombat.NDS" will work just the same). The program I use for batch-file-renaming is called, "Better File Rename" and can easily be found on Google.

    9. Copy/Move the files over to your Nintendo.DS game cart and play.

    I have found many many games to work with only minor graphical glitches, although, there are a handful of games that just wont work or are simply unplayable... For these games, you will know within the first few seconds of booting/playing if the game will run as desired. Your mileage will vary.

    I hope someone can get good use out of this brief snezzi guide. Mods, please feel free to edit and/or post this to your guides section if desired.

    Version 0.27 that I'm talking about hasn't been released yet.

    Also version 0.26 that you're using is the GBA Senezziboy not the DS version...... [​IMG]
