Post subject:  SNES hardware test program archive

Since tukuyomi's SNES emulation archive recently went offline, I decided to archive the test programs that were stored there:

http://snescentral.com/homebrew.php


Of course, I am an archiver, not a SNES hardware expert, so if anyone can fill in the gaps in terms of what some of these tests do, I would appreciate it.


I am also wondering if someone has some of blargg's test programs that are not here. I know that byuu has been looking for them.

re: the "Homebrew SNES Games/Demos" section: there are demos on Pouet, maybe include or link to them?

While we're at it, I may as well ask here too. My USB stick suffered from corruption and I lost my test ROM archive.

Would anyone happen to have copies of more of blargg's test programs?

I'm specifically very interested in finding spc_dsp6.

The download links of "Pic Play" and "The Learning Curve" are identical.

Re: bsnesdemo, the third version fixes a bug where pressing Start on controller 2 to hide the checkerboard would display a glitched screen instead, because I had accidentally missed some hardware init or something and it wasn't apparent in the slightly out-of-date version of bsnes I had been using at the time. (I'm pretty sure it was still released in the same year as the other versions, but I can barely remember anymore)

The purpose of that ROM was for testing audio/video sync and input lag. You can also press Select on controller 2 to change the audio. I think BMF54123 or someone else had requested it after a discussion on byuu's old forum or something.
