You're probably missing the xlib headers. Try "apt-get install libx11-dev"

Actually, yes that *would* be allowed, if you only distribute the code you yourself wrote, and instructions on how to patch the code to bsnes, or maybe even a shell script which automates this process. They're only distributing their own code, which is under their copyright. So technicly it's compl...

You're confusing me. 0.04 is the same thing as 0.040. One is showing thousandths, the other isn't. It's mathematically compatible with old versions to drop it. Yet another reason decimal systems suck, people can't even understand this. They never get followed, either. For some reason, people like t...

You're thinking of 0.004. Depends on how one view the version numbers, I suppose, but for me, a version number isn't a decimal number, it's a series of numbers. Usually (major . minor . point), though bsnes do away with the point releases alltogether. So, any prefixed zero is simply there for clari...

That second scheme is kinda good except for one thing, I do believe v 0.04 was released years and years ago. Neat, found this in my referral logs: m A major license violation, but I honestly don't mind. I think it's pretty cool actually. Nach / JMA or the authors of the GPL'ed socket library they're...

Personally I still feel XHTML matters, but I also feel that the web, as it stands today, is an absolute development hell, especially on the front end. For one thing there's no easy way to separate back-end to front-end, Even if you can do it in your code both the database devs and the HTML devs must...

Also added a new path selector for where you want all data files to go. This will include WAV files, screenshots in the future, tracelogs and memory export data. No, I'm not making 30 paths so you can separate your WAV files from screenshots, sorry. If you're going down this route, atleast be kind ...

I must say a context menu with no other way to visually manipulate data is a bad idea. GIMP tried to run that setup for years and people got extremely confused by it. Context menu might be a good idea for advanced settings, but I think the current scheme more or less work fine. Why not stop beating ...

I believe bsnes puts the config file per default in the AppData folder (which is a sensible place to put it), but that it first checks it's own directory for a config file before checking the AppData folder. Thus one can have several versions of bsnes all using different config files on the same com...

I must say, after reading up a bit on PulseAudio, it seems like it has potential for being a great backend... Eventually. However, much needs to be fixed until it gets really good. :/ But, Pulse seems to offer a light at the end of the tunnel, if ever so small. Give it five to ten years and maybe yo...

I tried swapping out most, but that write function has me sorta stumped; There isn't one in the libao wrapper, and it's not just easily replaceable with sample. :/

I would use OSS4 if it wasn't for the fact that many projects doesn't even consider OSS4 support, instead preferring to go with things like PulseAudio... Like swfdec.

Did some more checking - it appears it is the ALSA driver that is the culprit. Switching to OpenAL works, but produces a ~200ms lag. >_<

I get quite a few warnings while compiling on Ubuntu 8.10, you might want to check it out. (g++ version 4.3.2)

I think Byuu isn't working with the MAME-crowd since they're not developing SNES stuff, simple as that. And who said that collaboration between projects were bad? There are a few arcade games that uses the ST018 chips or so I've been told. Byuu wants ST018 support, MAME wants ST018 support, why not ...

Ok, digging through the Quake 3 sources took a bit longer than I expected. It looks like there's something called XGrabPointer() that seems to do the trick, but Q3 has also put up it's own function for creating a hidden cursor. Right now I'm busy digging through the xlib manuals to see if they have ...

I'm pretty sure the Q3 sources have the answer, but I'm on a 56k connection right now. Give me an hour to download the Q3 packages and dig through the input wrapper, then I should have something for xorg natively. :3

Actually, I can see one big use case for that; If you don't have sloppy focus (like in Windows where a window has to be raised to accept input), and you have one browser window open to check a walkthrough, you might want to have the browser window and emulator window side by side to easier permit sc...
