Excellent release. It's good to see releases for SNES9x. There's even jumplist support, which is nice.

Cool. I had switched from using GT as my main SNES emulator to a 9x 1.53 testbuild.

How nice to see everything moving to 64 bit code these days and it's working perfectly. I remember that someone posted a 64 bit prototype of ZSNES here long time ago and I don't remember if it was Nach or Pagefault.

It wasn't a official release but a test prototype. Fuck if I just had the dam file from my hard drive that died from my old PC, I could prove it's existence.... Did you asked them about it? Of course back then I couldn't run it because I didn't had a 64 bit CPU or OS.

*EDIT*

Forget it! I think was a build that was 32 bit and 64 bit code or something... it was by the time the first 64 CPUs where released. Someone said "If they drop 32 bit support we are ready". I can't remember more.

Yep maybe I was probably wrong... I mean it's inflexible assembly and if x86 where to die ZSNES will probably go with it...

For that matter, why would you want to? The SNES hardware used Gaussian Interpolation on its sound chips. It's necessary for accurate sound reproduction.

Yes, let's not get into the discussion from #zsnes freenode where one of the regulars suggested the removal of linear and nearest neighbor interpolated sound was a step backwards because it was a removal of existing functionality, regardless of if it was replacing it with correct functionality.

It's going away anyway, since I don't remember blargg's core having linear or shitty interpolations. In that sense, it's not a removal of existing features.

That's like telling people who run 64-bit Windows that their 64-bit kernel never had 16-bit emulation mode, when all they want to do is run their crappy DOS software, or crappy old Win16 software, or crappy old Win32 software packaged with Win16 installers. Oh wait, I guess it's totally not.

Not?? From the earliest development it was and I remember it well. This is bad, very bad. Roll back to 1.51

Again, why do you want to do this

Interpolation is what the SNES sound chips did.

Oh hey, it's SamusAran from #zsnes Freenode. Or at least, he's the only other person who wants their SNES to sound like an AMIIIIIIIIGA.

I need to disable and I can not do this because this option was removed.

well here's a question:

why, specifically, do you want to disable it?

You don't understand what I'm saying.

I'm asking why you need to disable it.
