To quote: Currently Mednafen only supports zipped roms, as there was a bug with unzipped roms (fix coming soon). Future versions should have PC Engine and PC Engine CD, as well as Atari Lynx, Neo-Geo Pocket and WonderSwan.

This is a port of the Mednafen Multi-System emulator to the Sony PlayStation 3.

Mednafen PS3 Features:
• Emulates NES GB GBC GBA SMS GG
• Load uncompressed or zipped images
• Save and load save ram and save states
• File browser, place your games on a USB drive, or FTP them to the internal drive
• Fast forward

The first time you load a game for a system, you will be asked to configure the controls, you can reconfigure them later by pressing L3 + R3.








Future:
• PCE and PCE CD support
• Neo-Geo pocket, Atari Lynx and Wonder Swan support
• Better user interface
• Other features

Use:
• File Menu
• Up and Down to Scroll the list by 1
• Left and Right to scroll the list by a page
• Cross: Select File or directory
• Circle: Go to previous directory

In Game:
• Tilt the right stick to the right for fast forward
• R3 to open settings menu
• Hold L3 + L2 to save state
• Hold L3 + R2 to load state
• Hold L3 + R3 to redefine controls

Settings Menu:
• Up and down to choose setting
• Left and right to change the current settings value

Thanks for your link !!

Salamander (PCE) works great.

I also tested Akumajō Dracula X: Chi no Rondo (PCE CD) and it doesnt work.

Installed R23 from R7 (installed over, did not uninstall R7) and using zipped games only i can confirm the following:

nes-works
snes-(was never meant to work with this emu, dont know where you got that idea)
gbc-works
gb-works
game gear-works
master system-(tested only 1 rom, didnt work for me)(will retry)
genesis-(was never meant to work with this emu, dont know where you got that idea)
pce_tg16-works (tried tg-16 rom only, not a cdrom based game)

also ran these from internal hard drive, not a usb drive.

ok also got sms to work. test out fantasy zone (world) if you want to try it out for yourself. seems compability is low at the moment so it doesnt matter if its zipped or not. zip files work perfectly fine.

Because you have been registered in this forum longer then me doesn't make you better then anyone else. Read a full thread and not just a couple posts and you wouldn't have the problem. Thinking this emu supports Snes.

Also if you read more posts especially from OP you would have read that there is a problem with the SMS roms and GG roms...
r5 Add load new game item on R3 menu. Press Triangle in the browser to change your mind. Doesn't like to load more than one SMS or GG game in a session.

My nogging is working, dunno bout yours.

Some more updates and changes from mike_k:
r23 PCE CD support, ftp bios to /dev_hdd0/game/MDFN90000/USRDIR/pcebios.bin, use only BIN/CUE with no external tracks or PS3 may hang.
r22 Fix load state button
r21 Enable lynx, read Readme for BIOS info
r20 Support bookmarks, in file list press R2 to set or remove bookmark.
r19 [No log message]
r18 Compile in Lynx, NeoGeo Pocket, and WonderSwan. Only WonderSwan and NeoGeo work for now, but neither is really tested.
r17 Fix cutoffs and crashes in input getter
r16 Preliminary PCE Support, no CD yet, that will come later
r15 Maintenance, do not compile Undo threaded Maintenance, do not compile Undo threaded frame buffer, boy that was broken in fun ways. Begin PCE support

Where in this thread do you read that SNES is supported?

Then you'll understand why your Snes roms don't work.
