Firmware v1.9.0 released
« on: December 18, 2018, 04:36 AM »
https://sd2snes.de/blog/

Firmware 1.9.0 is out. Download here!

What’s new:
  • SA-1 support by RedGuy! Big thanks to RedGuy again :) This was a really tight fit for the FPGA so there’s a little catch – MSU1 is not available for SA-1 games.
  • Also from RedGuy comes partial SRAM detection for some known games (SuperFX & SA-1). This calculates a ROM CRC and chooses to monitor only specific regions in cartridge RAM for changes. This enables automatic saving without having to resort to periodic saving, reducing wear on the SD card.
  • SNES CPU <-> PPU clock phase alignment. This is a long standing issue on a sub-CPU-cycle base inside the SNES. HDMA to certain registers can cause flickering sprite slabs to appear when CPU and PPU are out of phase after a cart-side reset (which does not reset the PPUs). This fixes the notorious flickering of characters with the giant frog attack in Chrono Trigger, sprites in Kirby Super Star, characters behind the text box in Star Ocean, and probably more. See https://github.com/RedGuyyyy/sd2snes/issues/6 for technical details.
  • Added an option to always go back to menu on reset, regardless of whether it’s a short or long reset.
  • LED brightness setting (16 levels)
  • Added an option to choose whether you want to start a game with or without cheats enabled (of those that are marked as enabled in the YAML file). You can enable / disable them later using the L+R+Start+A / L+R+Start+B button combinations if you have in-game buttons enabled.
  • Disable Satellaview emulation when a real Satellaview base unit is detected to avoid bus fighting and facilitate Satellaview development
  • System Information now shows the currently effective video mode (50 or 60 Hz).
    Fixes:
  • Control signal edges are detected a bit earlier, improving stability on some consoles (Github Issues)
  • Fix timing of auto region patching. This should solve cross-issues with Super Scope games because they rely on the same register that is also used to read the console region.
  • Fix brightness patching / limiting for games that use HDMA to alter the brightness register. (e.g. Star Fox)
  • Fix an occasional imaginary access cycle carried out by the FPGA after reconfiguration. This fixes lockups when loading games with dedicated FPGA files, i.e. SuperFX, SA-1, OBC-1.
  • Fix SuperCIC pair mode entry for consoles with ≤ 3.072MHz CIC clock (notably GPM revisions). (Github Issue)
  • S-RTC register state is reset when the console is reset.

Great news.
Will FURiOUS's save state function be integrated into this at some point?

How many (MSU1,SA1) titles are there?  The 2 big ones I would think are Mario RPG and Kirby SS.

Tested DB Hyper Dimension (it froze on beta fimwares) and it's 100% working now.

According to this:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Super_NES_enhancement_chips#SA1

There are 36 games to use the SA-1 chip.
I believe their question was in regards to which SA-1 games also support MSU hacks simultaneously. I can only think of SM:RPG and Kirby as well.

Awesome!!! Thank you very much!  8)

But I'm afraid I'm suffering from an issue with BS-X games, which have stopped working (as I reported on a separate thread). Anyone else having this problem?

I updated the firmware to 1.9.0 on one of my SD2SNES's and it disabled my leaked version of the SDD1 code as I can no longer player Street Fighter Alpha, so I'd say hold off for now at least until the next big ikari update where SDD1 support is finally added officially, however long that will be from now.

Well unless you have more than one SD2SNES as I do and can then have the latest firmware on one of the cart's SD cards and older firmware that allows you to play more things on the other.  :P

krikzz products I own: SD2SNES, Joyzz, Everdrive GB X7, Everdrive GBA X5, Mega Everdrive X7, Everdrive 64 v3, Everdrive N8, Turbo Everdrive v2, Master Everdrive X7.
