no$sns; selling dope in a BS-X ROM near you.

If you’re wondering exactly what is up with the video LuigiBlood uploaded here, then go to here and download no$sns and try booting the BS-X ROM on it.

I’ve been giving the emulator a very good go myself, and although the compatibility isn’t all there yet (A lot of the ROMs do not detect as BS-X compatible and thus try to boot without it), there is one very important ROM that does…

Ever see the ROM in certain sets labeled “Satella2_1”? It doesn’t seem to be in GoodSNES or no-intro, probably because for a long while the nature of the ROM was mysterious – it wouldn’t boot past a single screen, and the best assumption was that it was related to Satellawalker.

… Finally, though, no$snes has it playable basically from start to end, and, well, I guess I should’ve expected it, but it turned out indeed to be the very Satellawalker segment that was on Youtube for a long time now.

Since the ROM doesn’t appear to be going around in many DATs, here it is for reference.

    I don’t know if you’re talking about the title screen or the old black screen, but I just tried the ROM you provided in SNESGT and bsnes, and it booted up just fine, though obviously bsnes didn’t get very far in before exiting to BIOS. Where did you get this? It’s not like the one I downloaded in the past. That one’s data seemed to be misarranged.

    I’m pretty certain this one’s the same ROM I’ve been looking at for years.

    In those other emulators, I could not get it past the first screen.

    Well, can you try it in the other emulators again? Just now, I tried getting a new copy from a different source than I did before, and it matched the one here. But the old one I mentioned, I tried it out in no$sns before downloading the one one here, and it didn’t work any better than before. The bad version has its BS header at the place the BS header would go in a HiROM game.

    Sounds all confusing. Could you supply me the “other” one, for reference?

    […] start, obviously, are some new emulators. no$sns, bsnes-sx2 and snes9x-sx2 have made dramatic strides to improve Satellaview emulation. Also, the […]
