Working on setting up my emulators, and i've got GFCE ultra and Gens running just fine, but i'm having problems with the SNES emulators.
I don't really care which one i use, just want it to work.
When I try to run ZSNES the window appears and disappears almost immediately. This is the error i get when running from the console:
ZSNES v1.51, (c) 1997-2007, ZSNES Team

I downloaded snes9x and snes9xexpress as well. Seems like snes9xexpress was built for an older version of snes9x. It will run games as long as i don't touch the controller config, but if i configure a controller it crashes with error code 1. The reason i think that it is for an older version is that snes9xexpress is looking for the joypad in /dev/js0 when it is infact /dev/input/js0. If i change where it is looking for it (there is an option to change the path) is when it starts crashing with the error code 1. Here is the console output given by snes9xexpress when it returns the error code 1 (with the huge long list of options removed for readability, i can include them if you need me to however):
snes9x -joydev1 /dev/input/js0 -joymap1 1 2 0 3 6 7 9 8 -joydev2 /dev//input/js1 /home/vistal/Downloads/Chrono\ Trigger.srm
snes9x: S9xUsage: snes9x <options> <rom image filename>
ROM image needs to be in Super MagiCom (*.smc), Super FamiCom (*.sfc),
*.fig, or split (*.1, *.2, or sf32527a, sf32527b, etc) format and can be
compressed with zip, gzip, JMA, or compress.
snes9x returned error code 1
I know this is a good rom and snes9x can run it because as long as i don't alter the controls it starts up fine (but i can't play it for obvious reasons).
Any suggestions on how to get either of these running? Also looking at the forums there was some work on an rpm of BSNES which i would consider using as well. Anyone know if that went anywhere?
One final note: I've been reading about a GTK+ snes9x port. If i can't get this working should i request it in the package request area?
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
