Snes9x 1.62.3 Released


Brazilian Translator
Another release containing a bunch of small things. There are a few game fixes and some UI tweaks, as well as some reorganization in the backend. The biggest front-facing feature is a Vulkan output for the Windows and Gtk ports. Like OpenGL, Vulkan can use the slang shaders in the libretro repository.

For those who dont know snes9x has support for translations on GTK, i updated the brazilian portuguese translation, just make a fork and submit a pull request for your language.

Snes9x 1.62.3
This fixes the backward-compatibility with save states from before 1.62. It also fixes issues with the libretro core mishandling our new filesystem functions.

Snes9x 1.62.2
Version 1.62.1 had a bug that would erase games' SRAM if save states were loaded. We have better luck with these .2 releases.

Snes9x 1.62.1
This contains several small fixes for bugs noticed after 1.62 was released. With luck, there will be a version 1.62.2.

Snes9x 1.62
- Fixed SA1 division with negative dividend again. (Atari2)
- Fixed timing on several instructions. (pi1541)
- MSU1 audio with no loop point will not repeat from start.
- Modernized some old memory-related code.
- Fixed a desynchronization in interlaced modes and reporting.
- Remove SA1 access to WRAM.
- Added second set of registers between S-DSP and S-SMP. Fixes PAL version of Virtual Bart.

Gtk + Windows:
- Added a Vulkan graphics output method. Similar to OpenGL, this can use libretro's slang shaders.
- Changed the automatic frame skip throttle to take place immediately before showing the frame, making VRR work better.
- Add menu item to clear recent files entries.
- Add fixed window size changes up to 10x.

- Improved the shader parameters dialog with sliders and resize.
- Allow disabling adding registry entries. Deletes any existing entries when the option is disabled.

- Switched to CMake for build system. Removed meson.
- Fixed some keys not working with modifiers. (Gutawer)
- Removed graphics options most people won't understand or need.
- Improved wayland support. Handle fractional DPI properly.
