Ah but wait, which should be more accurately correct?
Cause it's all very confusing for me, cause i am just used to the Pixel 1:1 where it's all easy;P

And also, where are the save files located, i would like everything to be saved in the folder of the Emulator,
from my understanding it's in my documents, i find the folder but no clue which is the save file (not save stat).

Many thanks;D

The user may not have permission to write to the emulator folder, especially if an emulator is installed for all users in an administrator-owned folder such as %ProgramFiles%\application or /opt/publisher/application.

The convention is to create a folder inside the user's home directory and store settings, battery RAM files, and saved states there. On Windows, this folder is usually called %APPDATA%\publisher\application; on UNIX it's $HOME/.application or $HOME/.publisher/application. Because the file manager hides the %APPDATA% folder or folders whose name begins with ., it's convenient to offer a menu item within your emulator to open this folder in the file manager.

Ah i see.

And also i need some emergency help, the game didn't save last time i played:((
I played a lot, and restarted the games several times.

Then i let it be on, and the Emulator crashed when i focused on it.
Then i started the game anew, and the save file was from when i last started the Emulator:(

I am guessing i am screwed, or does the save file exist somewhere, temporary before saving when i guess the Emulator closes?

EDIT:

Have replayed it and added a request on Git to "fix" it, so that the save files are actually written on the spot.

Hello,
first of all congratulations for all the hard work put in this project.
I'm using version SDL 0.100 and i tried to use crt-royale.glslp (from the latest Retroarch pack), when i select the shader PuNes closes itself.

I have a laptop equipped with Intel Hd4000.

Could you please check this ?

Is there any option for exclusive fullscreen? I use a G-Sync monitor and this emulator doesn't seem to be compatible, it stutters when G-Sync is active, even if i try to add it to the 3D settings via nVidia control panel.
I'm sorry but I do not have a G-Sync monitor and even a video card NVidia. :(

Good idea.

I will contact you in private.

I took a video using OpenGL version, as you can see when screen moves vertically there is a line of artifacts.
I tried different options but i have the same behaviour.

Hello FHorse! I am a big fan of puNES! It is simply the best emulator, especially because the Video Shader 'CRT Scanlines' makes it look exactly like my childhood TV. :D :lol:
Also, wonderful job on the 7-Zip support. Now I can play directly from the GoodNES ROM set without having to extract them or reconvert them into ZIP archives.
Now, I have a question for you. Will you be adding AVI Recording in a future release?

Hello!
I've been trying to use RetroArch shaders without success.
For the Dx9 version I use the .cgp files but get a "shader error. use no filter" (or something very similar to that)
Using the SDL version, I use the .glslp files but when I try to load them, puNES crashes.
Any ideas?
Thanks!

Hi aych001, first of all thx for the support :). In my list of things to do there is also the possibility to record a video of the game session. Sooner or later.

FHorse, it's impressive that you keep adding very tangible enhancements to your emulator! I'm especially happy about the recent additions of being able to load a custom shader and disable the sprite limit and I'll have to try out the new overclocking function.

I had an idea for another enhancement that probably would be pretty easy. I don't know about anyone else, but I'd really appreciate being able to save settings for different games, especially palettes and overscan cropping. I currently have a text document where I write down how much each game needs to be cropped to eliminate artifacts while preserving all the rest of the image, and I have to look at it and then change the values in the emulator each time I switch games. Also, different games look better with different palettes. It would be great if I could get everything set up how I want it and then save a game-specific profile that would be automatically loaded the next time I open the game. I hope you consider my request. In any case, keep up the great work. :beer:

I really like this emulator, but now I encountered a compiling error under Linux for v0.100 with latest packages (GCC 6.1.1):
xBRZ/xbrz.cpp: In function ‘double {anonymous}::distRGB(uint32_t, uint32_t)’:
xBRZ/xbrz.cpp:174:12: error: ‘sqrt’ is not a member of ‘std’
return std::sqrt(square(r_diff) + square(g_diff) + square(b_diff));
xBRZ/xbrz.cpp: In function ‘double {anonymous}::distYCbCr(uint32_t, uint32_t, double)’:
xBRZ/xbrz.cpp:201:12: error: ‘sqrt’ is not a member of ‘std’
return std::sqrt(square(lumaWeight * y) + square(c_b) + square(c_r));
xBRZ/xbrz.cpp: In constructor ‘{anonymous}::DistYCbCrBuffer::DistYCbCrBuffer()’:
xBRZ/xbrz.cpp:237:44: error: ‘sqrt’ is not a member of ‘std’
buffer[i] = static_cast<float>(std::sqrt(square(y) + square(c_b) + square(c_r)));

I think sqrt is a member of math not std, plus I don't think it is needed to specify it. But just looking up the github page, a patch has already been committed...
It was probably already mentioned but I'd really like to have a debugger menu if it's possible :mrgreen: .

std::sqrt in cppreference.com

Is #include <cmath> in the right place?

It is a member of std if you include <cmath>. It may also be a member of the global namespace (varies).

If you include <math.h> instead it will just be in the global namespace.

xbrz.cpp appears to include neither. I imagine that it was accidentally working because of some implementation that collaterally includes std::sqrt through another header.

Hello, Can you please add a Frame Skip OFF option. Thank you and have a nice day.

Trying to use the bilinear.cgp and nearest.cgp shaders from the libretro common-shaders Git repo causes an error on loading the shaders, switch to "No filter" message.
