For some reason I cannot get my SNES Classic to start my dump of Super Street Fighter II (US cart). The few other dumps I've uploaded are working fine. Are there any known issues with this game -- e.g. is it known to be non-functional on the Classic right now? I figured it would have worked because the Japanese SNES Classic has this game preinstalled, but maybe the Japanese cart is compatible while NA isn't? That'd be weird....

Only at 38 games. Need to add some more gems.

You're going to want to edit the .desktop files for some of those.

For example, Chrono Trigger is showing no cart save icon, and Contra 3 says 1 player.

Two quick questions:

1. If I untick one of the 21 default games, it's removed from the list, right? What I want to do is to replace Secret of Mana with the romhack that has a better font width. Or at least I will, once the high-res mode issues are solved.

2. Are pages implemented correctly? I would prefer to have all my games on the same screen, not in folders, without them cutting off once the limit of thumbnails per page is reached.

Have the same error with Kirby's Dreamland 3 and Chrono as well.

Man I hope people report this to Cluster and he change it back. Seems like some game have that as native reset and he resets the game + goes back to the system menu at the same time.
And because it resets the game first, your shortcut starts at the game main menu this makes this feature really useless.

You may have noticed that hakchi has a "Take screenshot" menu option under Tools, but if you are on Windows 10 this won't work. This is because .png files are associated with that shitty Windows 10 album preview thing. To fix it, just make .png files open in something else by default (Paint is fine), and voila, super awesome beautiful screenshots direct from your SNES Mini.

I change it back to down+select in the UI just because of this.

For some reason i can't make the save icon appear even when i edit the save count to 1 it doesn't come on. For some reason it also caused a C8 error when i did it on one game, i had to delete the game to get my mini to boot again.

I take it you just edit the files then sync the mini to update?

Did you edit with Notepad or Wordpad? Windows apps (like with the screenshot thing above) corrupt the .desktop file. You'll want to use Notepad++.

1. Yes, that's right.

2. As of RC4, pages should function okay now.

Just a shame that quite a few games that i dumped are not working. Either my dumps are faulty or hackchi doesn't work correctly in converting them yet.

All Japanese versions.

The firemen (sound is totally corrupted)
Super bomberman 1 & 2 (don't boot at all)
Super donkey kong 2 (doesn't boot)
Super Genjin (doesn't boot)
Ganbare daiku no gensan (doesn't boot)

You can? I can only change the buttons on the second setting in the menu and I thought that's the in-game reset?
The first setting can just be activated or deactivated.

This?



This is to bring up the home menu. So here mine is down and select. In Chrono Trigger, L, R, Select and Start will reset the game, but Down, Select will bring it to the home menu without resetting the game.

You can only remove the 21 default games wholesale. Which is what I've done, replacing all of them with ROMs so that I have full, control over them without the need for FTP (in my case it's almost a necessity as I've replaced the vanilla versions of them with Spanish patched versions in many cases).

As far as I know pages are folders, they're just folders created automatically with your games sorted into them. As such, actually using manual folders is a much better solution for me.

No, both options refer to the "back to menu" reset. One enables it and the other changes the shortcut.

Dumped my kernel, flashed the custom one, uploaded my games. Everything's working fine (except for Super Street Fighter II, weird), but I have a question. It seems the "Pages, split games equally" option isn't doing what I assumed it was going to do. I thought that I would get the whole list of games and when I reached the end of the page (30 games, I guessed), it would move to another batch of 30 games. But instead it puts them in folders, organized by alphabetical order.

Is there such an option for what I want to do?

Don't worry about it. It was change between RC2 and RC4, but won't affect anything. Actually you're better of with RC2 for that because RC4 makes the combination class with ingame resets.

Here's a quick rundown.

1) With the SNES Mini attached to your PC via USB, hold reset, turn the Mini on, wait a few seconds, then release reset. The light will not be on.
2) Go to Kernel, Dump Kernel. Install the driver if prompted. DO NOT lose this file, ever.
3) Go to Kernel, Flash Custom Kernel. Your SNES Mini is now haxed.
3a) Optional, but recommended if you aren't doing too many games. Go to Settings, Pages/Folders Structure and pick Disable.
4) From now on, simply use the Add Games button, pick your SNES ROM, fill out the details, assign some box art..
5) And when you're done, hit the Sync button bottom right.
6) Now turn the SNES off, wait a moment, then turn it back on without holding reset. The light will come on, your new games will appear.



What doesn't work right now?
Illusion of Gaia
Terranigma
Dragon Quest III
Star Ocean
Tales of Phantasia
Street Fighter Alpha 2
Far East Eden of Zero
Great Circus Caper
Top Gear 3000
Dragon Ball Z Hyper Dimension

What games exhibit problems?
Treasure of the Rudras (hi-res text is blurry)
Seiken Densetsu 3 (hi-res components are blurry)
Uniracers (opponent always drawn in center of screen)
Smash Tennis (screen stretches outside of the confines of the TV)
Earthworm Jim 2 (audio issues)
Krusty's Super Fun House (graphics corruptions)
Air Strike Force (no shadow, garbled graphics at briefing, blurry hi-res text)

Does this work on Macs?

Sorry, one Noob question: Can I use Hakchi2 with the Super Famicom Mini as well?

Is there anything I need to watch out for while using the tool with my SFC Mini? I was not sure whether the US/EU models are technically identical with the model here in Japan. ;(

Absolutely, go ahead. They are basically identical save for the selection of games you get with it.

While I haven't hacked my SNESC just yet, thought I'd play around with making PAL style versions of the boxart, cos those are the version I grew up with (and it adds a bit of colour to the screen)



Though, it seems some PAL boxes (I believe the French versions) don't have that grey PAL VERSION text underneath the Super Nintendo logo (and there's not that many great versions of PAL boxes to choose from on the internet).



So have to decide if I photoshop that back in, leave them as is, or remove it from the others (I've been changing them to say NTSC VERSION ;) )
