|Description: ||ZMZ combines the GUI of ZSNES with a Libretro backend; this allows people who like ZSNES' interface but dislike its poor emulation accuracy to get the best of both worlds. |
It ships with an intermediate Snes9x version (newer than 1.53) and bsnes-balanced by default; if it's too slow, try Snes9x-Next, or if you prefer bsnes, grab one from the same source. Note that some features, like layer toggle and SPC dumping, may not work with non-default cores.
It is also only compatible with x86 cores; ignore x86_64 cores even if you have a 64bit cpu. To switch core, go to Misc->Libretro.
This update (created by Medic, with permission from Alcaro) fixes a bug where loading bml files wouldn't work, and a bug where loading very small roms would make ZMZ fail to load, fixes ppu.bin and somewhat improves audio.
Overall everything seems to work as intended, but there are two stand-out issues in this version that stop me from accepting it.
Using many of these keys causes the emulator to crash. Specifically the BG Disables, sound keys, and some of the misc/GFX toggles. Everything under "quick keys" seemed to work fine. Worth noting that this happened on two different computers for me.
Apparently after loading an SRAM file, the save is deleted upon exiting the emulator. (The .srm file is still there, but there's no save)
I'll also bring up the movie recording feature, which is still broken. Fixing it isn't mandatory, as it's broken in the current version, but it would be great if you did, as it is something that's commonly used.
