View Full Version : bsnes v0.036

A new release of this SNES emulator is available.

This release fixes a somewhat serious bug introduced in v035, and also vastly improves Windows support for non-ANSI filenames. The bug was triggered when HDMA would occur during DMA. If the DMA were long enough, subsequent HDMA transfers would be blocked. This caused graphical glitches in Star Ocean, Super Mario Kart, and possible more games. If you noticed any regressions from v034 to v035, this was almost certainly the cause.
The file handling for the emulator has also been rewritten. On Windows, attempting to load a file with non-ANSI characters (eg Russian, Japanese, etc) would cause these characters to be removed. This meant that no version of bsnes thus far could load these files.

You can download the Windows binary or the source code here (http://www.zophar.net/snes/bsnes.html) or at the author's website (http://byuu.cinnamonpirate.com/bsnes/).
