Hello, thanks for the updates!
In the readme it's said that Snes9x 2010 and 2005 was updated, the Snes9x next was updated a well? If not, how would do they compare with each other? I'm almost sure that in the previous release of your Snes9x next i could fell some stuter with the fast rom patch for Aladdin, but in this new release I can't fell it anymore.
I did not update Next, it could be RA with its countless settings that affect speed.

Do you get those stutters in the 2010 version? That one's more likely to work better. Next is only there as a backup in case something important breaks in the newer cores.

Hey there @SuperrSonic, on your latest RA-HEXAECO you can save and load savestates on PokeMini core?

Tried this for a few and while it can be used i can't save nor load savestates. (I click in "Save State", then in a more complicated level on a game i want to return to the savestate i've made but the savestate didn't load).

Any advice with this please? Thanks!

PD: When a PicoDrive core in RA-HEXAECO that i can play 32X games with a reasonable speed like on normal RA (i think since 1.9.14)?

I noticed, that the current RA core genesis_plus_gx_libretro_wii.dol freezes the Wii to a black screen. genesis_plus_gx_wide_libretro_wii.dol runs fine. For me, I changed Sega_Megadrive-genplus_gx_libretro.ini to work around the faulty RA core.

Has anyone else problems with this core?

Just tested it again, no difference in Snes9x next. I was probably using another one before, probably 2010.
With 2010 theres some stutters in the fast rom Aladdin and sound problems with Final Fantasy VI, with Snes9x they are ok.
I still use your Reatroarch cores because I like the option to stretch the games video width to fill my CRT screen, and the volume option come in hand in my setup

Yes PokeMini save and load are not working for me either. Using RA 1.10.2 PokeMini core, save/load is working correctly. Just recently RA allows Hex editing for individual core configurations. If you are creating single game loader channels, could be useful for your projects.

Yes, I have the same issue with the RA genesis plus libretro core for some time now. However i have the same issue with the genesis plus gx wide libretro core also.
I have not tested wide core releases recently since i thought they were still broken too.

Could you post what release you have working please and are you using the wide core as the default Sega core.?

Thank You

Hey there @RunningSnakes, thanks for your answer, i will check it out.

On most recent RA-HEXAECO, PicoDrive core has been improved? Or still the same problems (slow speed on some 32X games, etc...?)

It is hit/miss. The last version i tested will not boot games with black screen freeze.
but these are permanently on black screen? Or these are just temporal and then load?

Because when i made my Knuckles' Chaotix video on RA Wii 1.9.14 once the emulator started it stayed on black screen during 30 secs to 1 minute and then booted normally the game.

EDIT: it was not 1 min 30 secs, it was between 30-60 secs

Good question:)

I attempted to play 1-2 games and did not have patience enough to wait. It is possible they are running with some patience.
any news?

i could confirm why the loading 32X/32X CD games on PicoDrive takes a bit long. I think because of its dynarec used to recompile the code for use them on the Wii and takes a bit time to get the dynarec ready to start and "recompile" the 32X game.

is there a way to have the sourceflow for systems in Rhapsodii Shima display one name but get organized by another name? Like say i want to put the Nintendo consoles together but still just have it display the console name and not like "Nintendo-1990-Super NES" or whatever else i would sort it by.

I don't know if it's what you are asking but you can make a "Nintendo" button on your source_menu.ini that lead to a new source menu where you can configure a button for each console. The name will be whatever you set the "title=" to be.

This unfortunately is not a good solution to me since it would require not only making new buttons but i think adding additional layers to the source menu is kind of an ugly solution. I guess the best i am gonna do is just rename things.

I'm using RA's nightly build and update ones a week in the hope they repair it. Yes, I use the wide core as the default Sega core, cause I prefer RA over stand alone emulators.

https://www.mediafire.com/file/6mxbabv95cnznm8/SNES+Data.7z/file So i have done my best to "update" the SNES database files. I have tried my best to separate out pirate carts and romhacks from the rest of the database by putting them at the end, but it's really not perfect in that regard. However, it should have most of the ROMhacks that are on MarioCube as well as those featured in ToddOfWar420's new coverset. I took new gameID numbers from pages on romhacking.net, smwcentral, metroidconstruction, or i used the last 6 digits of the SHA-1 of the zip file of the ROM. So it's not perfectly consistent, but it's extremely functional. I tried to maximize the number of snapshots and cart-disks available too using scraping tools, though i think someone with more knowledge than me should confirm the cart_disk files are Correct. The snapshots i can verify though.

As for what's missing, i collated some lists using scripts.

The python scripts ive made for analyzing libraries has been quite useful. Anyway, I'm crossposting this to the database thread and the cover collection thread.

Expect a whole new Satellaview database soon, too. No cart_disks for that obviously, but that's obvious.

Did you know that we already have directories SUPERNES and SUPERNES_HACKS for separation?
Yes, i didn't like the SUPERNES_HACKS files for one thing. I might try to integrate some of the entries there. I did my best to put the hacks at the end of the files. Moreover, the SUPERNES directory already had ROMhacks and unlicensed games polluting the database, so i'm not even sure why there was even an attempt to separate them in the first place. Unless you're gonna make a separate plugin just for ROMhacks and stuff, i couldn't figure out a useful justification for having it this way. Now they are RELATIVELY all together (modulo: 1) the entries in the SUPERNES_HACKS directory i just didn't use at all, and 2) whatever was in the SUPERNES directory that i missed as being an unlicensed game or ROMhack; i'm not perfect at this nor perfectly knowledgeable) but still separable to some degree.

The only valid reason i can think of for wanting to keep HACKS and the regular directory separate is avoiding the possibility of CRC collisions. That being said, using my math skills, here's a few fun facts about why that's not even that big a problem:

the SNES DB i uploaded here has 30,661 separate CRCs and none of them overlap. When i did find duplicate CRC entries, it was almost exclusively the same CRC double-listed in a single entry. The one exception to this was a CRC for one of the Clayfighter games was listed in both Clayfighter 1 and Clayfighter 2. Figuring the this was simply a database error and not some wild coincidence that both a clayfighter1 and clayfighter2 ROM BOTH have a CRC collision, i did a little bit of research and figured out which game the CRC belonged to and separated it.

For a sufficiently large space of hashes, N (of which the space of 8-digit hex numbers is: 16^8 = 4,294,967,296), the formula for approximating* very closely the probability of k different hashes colliding is:

1 - e^{-k * (k-1) / 2N}

where e is the base of the natural log, ~2.71828 (which every calculator that's Useful has stored, including google calculator)

Running the numbers, the probability of any hash collision between 30,661 entries is about 10%, so you still have a fair amount of wiggle room, statistically, to add even a few thousand more hashes if you wanted to. and like i said, the current library has NO hash collisions, i made sure of that when i was cleaning it up. Plus i made scripts to check for hash collisions.

The only reason i didn't integrate much of the SUPERNES_HACKS DB into the main one is because a) I wanted to control more closely how i added the hack data to the database, using scraping tools and whatnot, and wantd to be sure to include the things from TOW420's boxset as well as the hacks represented in Mario Cube's SNES collection, and b) because i wasn't familiar with most of those hacks, and there's so many of them. Like i said i can try to integrate them further later on, but it's a low priority now that i have the DB working for mariocube romhacks and TOW420's collection, and meanwhile i am focusing on Satellaview.

That being said, i will attempt to integrate matto21's cart_disk additions sometime in the near future, but my brain is super focused on Satellaview at the moment. I'd have to make a script to do some fuzzy matching for filenames and DB entries missing cart disks, or i could just do it all manually (which i think there's < 100, so i may just do that)

* The "real" formula involves a product of k different values, but k is itself quite large. Luckily, it can be shown that taking the "limit" of the recursive expression simplifies down to e^{stuff} when k and N are Large so that provides a relatively quick way to compute an approximation without telling a computer to multiply like thirty-thousand different things. Just a footnote for those of you curious why the base of the natural log is showing up in a combinatorical probability. I haven't don the Proof of it myself directly but i imagine it is similar to the proof for why taking the limit of "compounding interest formula" to determine the formula for "continuous compounding interest" becomes an e^{stuff}. If you want a brief reader on this, https://preshing.com/20110504/hash-collision-probabilities/ here.

Hi @RunningSnakes

I've normalized all plugin audio files to the same audio level and sample rate. Now you no longer fall off the sofa when you look at an Atari 2660 title. :rofl2:

ffmpeg-normalize -of out -ar 44100 --dual-mono --audio-codec libvorbis -ofmt ogg -ext ogg -f *.ogg
