Surprised (and disappointed) Phantasia doesn't work. It doesn't even use any special chips, so I thought it would have pretty much guaranteed to have worked.

But cool... I don't know if I want to do this to my Mini because I like the idea of it being hack free, but it's nice to see such a great tool for this.

So, I've started FFVI and have put almost 3 hours into it. If I were to edit it so I can use the FFVI boxart (if I ever add IV and V), can I keep the in-game save and/or save states?

Yeah, just untick them in hakchi and resync.

You can, just make sure you keep the ID the same. (The CLV-P-xxxx part)

The main screen does not work but the rest of the game does. Very weird.

Goof Troop also does not boot up at all.

If I went with 25x25 sprites, as opposed to 32x32 do you think I could go up to exactly 50 games before the thumbnail image cut off?

I want to setup my SNES for my personal top 50 SNES games.

With that said we have 1280 pixels to work with, so I figure 1280 / 50 = 25.6

So maybe 25x25 would work or do I need to go smaller like 24x24?

Soon I hope.

Yeah no kidding, especially Terranigma was number 1 on my list, hope it does indeed come. I THINK it doesn't use a special chip like SF2A or Tales, but there's only the EU version so not sure if that's the thing that's giving the troubles. Ah well, whatever.

I wonder if Star Ocean would work with the No S-DD1 patch. They say not to use it with emulators, but I wonder what would happen if you do try it.

Yeah, absolutely. You should have a tiiiny slither of space at the edge left when you go to that size. But you could also make some thinner if there was blank space, they don't have to all be equal size. I just went that way to make the cursor move the same distance each time, but it doesn't have to.

Not really SNES9x has been emulating them for like 15 years....but if Nintendo's not included those game on the system then i can see why they wouldn't be emulated with their emulator

FTP changes are instant, but the SNES won't use any changes til you power cycle.

Too bad. It was one I really wanted to put on the system. I guess there's always Retroarch, but I'm not a fan of it. It's too confusing with all the different cores.

So is it possible that Hakchi2 can get updated to get some of those games working properly? i.e. Terranigma.

Or is it very unlikely and I'll have to use RetroArch?

On the subject of box art. If anyone is looking for high res box art to then shrink down for the usage on their SNES classics.

Check out https://games.alphacoders.com/

Most of the SNES box arts are 2100x1551 here.

Trust me to get stuck at the first hurdle lol

Trying to install hakchi, my laptop is having none of it. Windows 10 asked me to download NET Framework 3.5 SP1 to install hakchi but after accepting I got the following message

"Component .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 has failed to install with the following error message:
"A failure occurred attempting to install .NET Framework 3.5 SP1."

The following components failed to install:
- .NET Framework 3.5 SP1"


Any Windows 10 connoisseurs?

I remember tinkering around with the nes classic and was only able to fit like 50 games, how come I can fit 180 on the SNES classic? is it due to better compression or more memory on the console itself? Also I remember that after a certain amount of games were added you could no longer see them in the menu on the NES classic, has that issue been fixed? I'm about to try it out but I'm taking my time adding cover art and game data info.

Do the rom files have extensions? .smc or .sfc

I would assume that the problem is with the emulator itself and it's not something that can be fixed with Hakchi2.
