I am glad I purchased an sd2snes several years ago as opposed to one of the cheaper alternatives.

New firmware is out,but....
Kirby super star is not working,mario rpg is working fine.
Could be a problem on my side,i don't known 100%,needs more testing,this is on my sd2snes,next week i got my sd2snes pro back.
Bsx error still there.
Ok,kirby super star started,but then froze,sjeez,can someone test that game please?
Cleaned contatcs,eject sdcard and put it back in,can't get it to work again,black screen.
Other games working fine,so its not my sd2snes.

We are discussing this on Discord with ikari.
Yes, SA-1 and SuperFX games have issues with 1.10.2 release, graphical glitches and freezes.

Normal, Pro or both, which one the issue?

I respond to myself (from https://sd2snes.de/blog/archives/1063#comment-991870 )
"Just to let people know, there’s a bug in this release which affect chip games, mainly in sd2snes non pro.
Ikari is already working on a fix and recommend people to stick to 1.10.1, for now."

Does the issue with BS-X games not work on the Super NT still remain? If so I'll stick to older versions until it's resolved.

Never had any problem.

Then I wonder if it's time for me to see if the latest firmware can still play them on my end.

Does anyone know when kirby super star will be fixed in 1.10.2 or if a new firmware will fix it?

Do custom themes that are reported to work on 1.10.1 work with this firmware or should I hold off?

Site here: http://bmf.rustedlogic.net/sd2snes/says only for 1.10.1, not the latest, so... I assume it does? I don't want to brick the firmware.

I would hold off anyway. He made a mistake that breaks some games, as others have reported.

And I have never had ANY issue with BSX games, aside from once when I made a new SD2SNES folder and forgot to copy in the BIOS files.

You sure you have all the files you need in the SD2SNES folder (BIOS, pagefile, there may be one other, I forget)?

If my theory is correct the Japanese version known as Hoshi no Kirby Super Deluxe has hardly any bug glitches in it. It's also vastly superior to Super Star...

How exactly is the japanese version of kirby superstar better?

Not to sound like I'm complaining, but are bugs of this magnitude common in SD2SNES firmware releases?

How exactly is the japanese version of kirby superstar better?

A different strobe on the splash title screen before the start icon appears, different strobe effects in gameplay a really cool water effect on the Fountain of Dreams, food that was later carried over to the Smash Bros series games as due to changes internationally a lot of food sprites were later changed to more common foods outside of Japan.

The PAL version known as Kirbys Fun Pak was actually based on the build of the Japan version but had it's food changed but unlike the NTSC version the effects are based off the Japanese build.

As for effects it's too hard to remember them all, you may notice the title screens strobe being a different color or if I recall it was cut entirely out of the Kirbys Super Star game. A lot of other stuff was changed too.

And lastly why it runs better is that odd line going through the sprites is non existant when on the SD2 SNES, it still has the odd line on a few static idle sprites but its less noticeable than the other versions.

Of course later versions of this game no matter what platform they came on became inferior due to the whole Pokémon Shock Incident, but why the NTSC version removed so many effects is still a mystery I haven't gotten my head around especially as this game was a 96 based one on release...

So to sum up the japanese version has a lot of visual effects removed from the American version? This I didn't know.

Yeah absolutely loads. I have to someday go back to playing my official PAL copy of Fun Pak that I 102% or 1 more % if that was possible with those extra modes that get unlocked. Though its a shame it has a habit of getting a dead battery each time its booted up showing a black screen then when it works again the save file gets erased then later comes back again.

On a related note, Kirby Bowl is also superior to international versions that had the intro removed.
