For a long, long time now, I’ve been wondering by the BS F-Zero ROMs have a notable emulation issue where you can’t clear a lap.
Well, I finally found an emulator where this doesn’t happen! Behold! Xpp XE. I don’t know much on it – it’s apparently Japanese in origin and based of the “SNES9XWXE” I may have mentioned before, but it’s newer (well, 2004, but still), and better!
To set it up, mark your “Save” directory and make a folder called “BIOS” there. Take the (headerless) “BS-X” ROM, name it to “bsxbios.bin” and put it in that directory. Now set up a “BSXPSRM” directory and leave it blank.
Then load the beauty. You’ll kick into the BIOs – showing the emulator obviously use a hack-ish method to load the ROMs. You have to load Soundlink games as though they were downloads!
Still. It’s worth it. Just for this. Watch me crash and die, folks!
In the old blog, I used to upload Mp3s rather randomly.
This time, though, I hope to have this sorted out more by what game they appeared in.

b) Synthesized arrange based of the “F-Zero Soundtrack”, which was a set of jazz arranges.
c) All-new compositions, which I obviously lack clean rips of. Read the rest of this entry »
To clarify why there’s confusion, I shall steal a Youtube video of BS F-Zero 2…. well, the one that’s going around as a ROM now. Compare it with the videos in the previous post. The differences should be readily apparent. Read the rest of this entry »
Anyway, I’m sure a few of you have heard of “BS F-Zero 2”. It was a Satellaview download, was it?… well, actually, it seems to also be multiple Satellaview Downloads… or something.
This actually confused me for a while – still does, honestly. There’s no ROM dumps of the Soundlink versions, and it seems most of the internet forgot about it’s existence. But then these vids got uploaded on NicoNicoDouga… Read the rest of this entry »
