September 18, 2010 // 5:12 pm - Update #2: squarepusher2 has released several more updates to SNES9x PS3, the Super Nintendo Emulator for PlayStation 3, which are all available for download now HERE.

Update: A new SNES9x r2 binary is now available with changes noted HERE followed by a SNES9x v1.0.3 port by Alex793 which includes some more fixes for those interested.

I got my Teensy++ Thursday and decided to port SNES9x (Super Nintendo Emulator) over to the PS3 as a little exercise to play with the Cell SDK.

It's pretty rough but it seems to work OK. It will load (uncompressed) ROMs off of /dev_usb000.

If anyone is interested, the code is linked above via GitHub with a binary attached below.

Download: SNES9x (Super Nintendo Emulator) PS3 Port / SNES9x PS3 Port Source Code

It's a new port to PS3 LV2 OS based on the vanilla SNES9x source.

To build:

• Install Cell SDK >= 1.92. You know how to find it. Configure according to the install instructions (make sure to set CELL_SDK).
• Make pkg
• Load the pkg and your ROMs onto a usb drive.
• Install on PS3 using your jailbreak device of choice.

Things that suck:

• Lots of SNES9x features are not supported yet. No save states, for example. Most of these are really simple to implement.
• Sound code is rubbish. It more or less works, but you'll probably hear the occasional skip.
• Performance isn't great.
• UI. Or rather, there isn't one.
• So much more.

I know this is a PS3 thread, but I was wondering if this could be ported to PC as well? ^.^

Hey, here's the PIC1.PNG if you decide to use it.

Thanks for the update! Have you given any thought to improving the interface? This plays great, better than almost any iteration of SNES9X that I have used, but the interface is a bit stark. I know that devs hate to be asked for things, so I apologize, I just wanted to throw out an idea.

OMG! SNES games look SO much better with the HD Shaders. Can't wait for the NES, Genesis, and VBA emulators to get the Shaders.

You will have to check search engines on your own for the game ROMs, as we don't get into linking to such things here.
