Hum, I tought the Snes9X4D was the ~11 fps and you had another one (I have a copy of the source of his 1.39ff version, as well, which goes about ~40 fps on Dingux) that was faster than snes9x4d
I only have a checked out copy of the source from the subversion repository. I was talking about the screenshots with fps numbers, and the posted numbers by someone in the thread comparing versions. SiENcE also mentions changing settings for making them run faster in his release posts on his blog, too.
I only mentioned it in the case that Snes9x-1.52 can't be made playable, as Snes9x-sdl-1.39ff would make a good compromise. It has SA-1 support, Super FX support, and SDD-1 emulation. The sound emulation isn't as accurate, however.
If case I would have no problem using v1.39ff.
because I'm using 1.39mk on my pc 40fps.
run v1.5x on my pc, I only get 12fps.
there's a snes9x version for sony PSP (333 Mhz) wich is... very slow, at first
but if you activate a certain option under the "misc" options, it becames a lot faster, and it doesn't seem to affect gameplay in any way
just can't remember what option it is right now... and i can't find my psp (i've let my brother play it this morning)
just found it!
if you turn ON the option "IGNORE PALLETE WRITES", most games that were in slowmotion (frameskip 0) now are 60fps
so, maybe putting this option in your port and activating it by default is the best option
if the guy finds any trouble with gameplay or graphic bugs, he/she can turn it off for that specific game (snes9x for PSP has individual configuration for each game)
sadly, some games are still unplayable even after this (dragon ball Z hyper dimension for example, even with that option, transparencies off and frameskip a lot high, like 5 ou 6, it's unplayable, and more frameskip than that is unthinkable in a fighting game)
Ya, wonder why they'd even put it in in the 1st place?

lets just hold on for a minute
i think ragnarok2040 deserves the right to finish what he is doing before we go questioning any thing
so lets whate till he releases till we start trying to put our 2 cents in
please bare with me dyslexia is a pain
Sure, he does sez it's only gonna be a few days for the input (which it seems he's already done) and a few more for audio and video.

I took a quick look and it looks like the "IGNORE_PALETTE_WRITES" hack was already implemented into the newest version of Snes9x's PPU. At least, the steps are the same when the hack is enabled on Snes9xTYL 0.42 and Snes9x 1.52 with FLUSH_REDRAW() being called. The ppu code for 1.52 was modified not too long ago, so it might have been included then.
Thanks for the heads up, though, as now I have two different sources to compare against, . There might be changes I can merge or I can try porting this one, too. It wouldn't take much to port other versions of Snes9x after I get 1.52 working, the only thing that's changed is the input code, which is simpler in the older versions.
I put up a mirror of masp at github, with the OpenVCL changes. It's an assembly preprocessor used for vcl source files. Some of the cpu emulation might be more optimized running on VU1 than the EE+VU0, so I put it up there, just in case I write some optimized cores.
The input code is mostly done. Since I was already knee deep in loading the configuration for the input, I decided to keep going on for the snes9x settings, of which there are a lot. It's not going as fast as I'd like, as it's been a busy week, but it'll be done soon.
After that, it's getting video/audio working, then the in-game menu commands for saving/loading savestates, and such.
Okay, so there's not much left to do! Well, good luck with grafix and...sound...and don't worry too much about frivolous commands like movie capture and stuff like that...I can only imagine how much lag would be present if you wrote the movie to file as you captured it on a USB 1.1 or worse, a memcard XD
