Post How to bypass first run "spacebar" screen
Hello.

Could anyone assist me in disabling the "spacebar" warning screen a person gets when they first load Zsnes?

I'm working from a device that uses controller (with emulated mouse) input, and there's no spacebar/keyboard present. I imagine it'd be a setting in the INI, but I'm unsure as to which one it is.

Run it from another computer and copy the config files from that one to the one wiithout space bar.

its not .INI but a .CFG (zsnesw.cfg , if you're using windows port for your box)

Code:
; Display First-Time Use Reminder (0 = YES, 1 = No)
FirstTimeData=1

No. It's a portable device, and that means Linux.

It's actually version 1.42 of Zsnes, so I can't run that version of my up to date Linux. (Dependencies...)

Thanks for the *.cfg info, I'll test it out as soon as I can.

On a portable x86 device with a linux old enough to not run latest zsnes, probably without any kind of opengl support, I wouldn't expect it to work well. :p Good luck.

I was actually able to run the latest Win32 version at a decent speed through an old version of Wine, but it doesn't respond to ANY of the controls other than the mouse. Not a real surprise...

You're correct, It doesn't have OpenGL.

Nope. Option didn't work. Does anyone else have any ideas?

Do I need the full paste here including the line after the ';' character? Just using the following line didn't work.

don't add the lines; change the existing line in the config file.
