I just tried the hdmi adapter with my iPad 1 and it's not working with snes9x ex while mame4all does a superb job with the video output.

Any news?
Dual device/TV output is in the middle of the to-do list at the moment so I don't have an estimate on when it'll be ready. If you're just looking for mirroring, it's possible to enable native HDMI mirroring on unsupported devices (iPhone 4, iPad 1) by editing a particular plist file under /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app (google for tutorials). Don't use any mirroring apps since I've gotten reports they drop frames and have screen orientation issues.

Hi. Love this app, love that there's no sound issue (like my previous emu)

I was wondering if there was a way to get save state/load state buttons on the main controls in-game, rather than having to go to the menu to do it. Looked through this whole thread and didn't see an answer here. Thanks.

Thanks for the info. I had already found and done the plist mod and it is working great. But thanks for the hint anyways!

Great emu, keep it up

This emulator is so awesome. My only question is if there is some way you can use the touch screen only to play games like mario paint? That would be super awesome and make me nostalgia in my pants.

P.S. thank you for awesome emulators. Otherwise, I would have no hope for jailbreak.

Try to sneak this into the app store. Even if it's only there for a short time it'll be worth it =P.

This might be possible since Snes9x doesn't use the GPL license (all other *.emu apps do so they can't go on the app store due to the DRM restrictions). Apparently Apple updated their policy and allows for apps to interpret code as long as that code cannot be imported/exported from the device. So it'd pretty much just be Snes9x bundled with some public domain roms (more could be added in updates of course).

Sounds great! If iMAME can make it onto the app store, I'm pretty sure this has a chance of making it onto there too.

Help Please

This might be a stupid question, but is there a way t use the emulator in landscape mode? If so, can you please tell me how to do so? Thanks in advance.

Hello there!

I recently bought a Gametel controller (gametel.se) and i'm quite happy with it.
But for some reason i can't get it working with your emulator i've installed BTstack, i've turned off bluetooth and all that stuff but nothing works!

What am i doing wrong?

That's strange, my Gametel works perfect with it. Have you sync'd it to your phone?
