Snes9x is a prick...

OK, I just installed DirectX9 just to run snes9x 1.53. XP SP3.

Annoying News:
The d3dx9_d38.dll wouldn't be found, so I had to download it, now I have downloaded it, there's an error about display settings and XAudio2 is broken.

Odd news is that I had Snes9x working 2 days ago without these problems, and I didn't have directx9 on it.
What exactly did you install? What you need to intall is the "DirectX Redistributable". I'm not sure which version, but the redistributable comes with all the DLLs you need.
Feel free to visit my website/blog - it's updated rarely, but it looks pretty cool!
It's directx9 and here's file info:

DirectX9 Web Setup
Version 6.0.2600.0

I don't know if it's the redistributable or not, but I got it off of Microsoft's own website.

Then don't use directx9.
This is temporary
Strange, you should try to upgrate your drivers to see if it work, install Visual C++ or Net framework, i had the same problems in the past and upgrating my drivers solved it.


If you're using Windows XP, go to start, execute, type dxdiag and press enter, go to the second tab and tell me if it show enabled or not disponible.

XP. No problems found with DX9.

Also, DX10 isn't supported in XP, Snes9x is for DX9 (as the title of it says).

Oh, and I have no dxd39_d38.dll or whatever the shite thing is called, so it's a buggered up version of Snes9x (the one off emulator-zone) which I have.

Hahahaha yeah, i made my name on purporse, but it's because of the Cave Story character, Quote.

I think this might help you, Go to C:/windows/system32/ and search for a file named D3DX9_30.dll, copy the file and paste it on your SNESX9 folder, now change the file name to d3dx9_38. If you're having Sound issues, go to the sound settings and change it to Snesx9 DirectSound.
Funny. It works now without the D3DX9_D38.DLL file.
I got it from emuparadise instead of emulator-zone.

Now it says 'Failed to initialise currently selected display unit', what do I do next?

EDIT2: I don't really understand what I'm doing. Because, it was working, I reinstalled SNES9X after I deleted it accidently when I was clearing my ROMs, now it requires this directx9 shit. I never even had it on the system before and now it needs it.
Haha, this is very simple, just change The graphic settings to DirectDraw.
I done that, but it doesn't seem to stick, it reverts to Direct3D if I close snes9x which is extremely annoying.

Weird. I found an outdated version (v1.51) doesn't seem to give any annoying errors. 1.53 comes up the d3dx thing.

What's the difference between v1.51 and v1.53?
I don't know, but i'm happy it works, you should upgrate your operation system to Windows 7. :)

Netbooks, annoyingly, don't have that option.
This does the things I need: go on AcmlmBoards and do SMW Hacking. Also plays NES/SNES and GB/GBA stuff fine.
What else do I need? :P
Oh, i didn't realize it was a netbook, anyways, I'm happy it works.

Now, I can at least make an avi recording of my levels, which I'm making.
(finds out, Mupen64 is still the greatest at playing MK64)
