What's new:

  • Better games compatibility for SNES Mini (updated database of preset IDs, better LoROM/HiROM detection).
  • Built in database of problem games, so hakchi2 will ask you to switch to 3rd party emulator automatically (e.g. RetroArch).
  • Original games are not using extra memory space anymore, so we have some extra space for additional games (thanks to DanTheMan827!)
  • "remove_thumbnails" mod no longer slows down SNES Mini's startup (thanks to brian91292!)
  • Bundled with new mod "snes_custom_filters" which allows to disable scanlines in CRT mode or enable bilinear filter in 4:3 mode. Please read mod description before install.
  • Bundled with new mod "extra_space". This is experimental mod for SNES Mini which moves your save-states data to unused partition of NAND flash. This partition is only 50MB in size but it will free some space for games because SNES Mini's save-states are huge. Please read mod description before install.
  • Bugfixes.

Huge update!

  • SNES Classic Mini support.
  • Automatic ROM conversion to special SNES Classic Mini's format. ~75% of games are working fine. You can use RetroArch mod for problem games.
  • For expert users: you can select SNES game and press Ctrl+Alt+E to show hidden Preset ID editor.
  • Individual profiles for different consoles, so you can use the same hakchi2 for both NES, SNES, Famicom and Super Famicom. You can select console type using "Settings menu".
  • 7-Zip compression support for all platforms and emulators. You can compress or decompress any game using only one checkbox.
  • Group operations. Now you can select multiple games in the main window, right click on them and do mass compression or mass cover downloading only for selected games. Hold control to select individual games.
  • For expert users: NAND dump, NAND-B dump and memboot features. Don't use it if you don't known what is it.
  • Some bugfixes and refactoring.

Instructions for new users:

Not so much new features but many bug-fixes and improvements:

  • FTP server is much more compatible and stable now (chown, MLSD, MLST, MFMT commands)
  • Sorting feature for Save Manager
  • Support for ultra shitty cheap Classic Controller clones (custom kernel re-installation required), but hardware modification is required (pull-up resistors)
  • New mods included as examples for modders (checkout my mods guide: https://github.com/ClusterM/hakchi2/wiki/Modifications-and-modules-guide)
  • Finally installer and auto update, lol
  • Screenshot tool
  • More translations to different languages
  • Other fixes

Yes, you can use web installer now: http://clusterrr.com/soft/hakchi2/setup.exe
This is static link, it always points to installer of latest version. Also it will install all required components if they are not installed. This version supports automatic update just in one click. So it's very recommended to use installer instead of classic portable version. Please note that all user files (kernel, config, games, etc.) will be stored in "My documents\hakchi2" folder by this version. So just copy your files there if you want to migrate to non-portable version.

So:

  • hakchi2_web_installer.exe - installer for non-portable version (recommended for new users)
  • hakchi2.zip - classic portable version
  • hakchi2_debug.zip - dubug version with verbose logging, download it to create bugreport for me
