ABOUT
-----

SnesMUI is a MUI based GUI for launching the Snes9x emulator. The program
supports Command-Line syntax of both 1.4x and 1.5x versions of Snes9x.


FEATURES
--------

- The most important emulation options are configurable within the GUI
- A custom arguments option to configure any other Command-Line options
- Shows preview and cover images of games if available
- Supports Zip archived ROM files
- Automatic detection of the emulator version
- Supports custom graphics in the GUI


INSTALLATION
------------

Minimal installation:
1) Copy the whole directory anywhere you want and just launch the program
2) Configure GUI paths in the Settings tab (at least for Snes9x exe and ROMs)

Preferred installation (full feature set with no configuration needed):
1) To easily get previews, covers, and GUI graphics, download and unpack the
following archive to your HD:
http://os4depot.net/?function=showfile&file=emulation/gamesystem/snes9x.zip
2) Download Snes9x *) and copy its exe/conf into the directory as-in "Step 1"
3) Copy the SnesMUI executable into the same directory too
4) Copy some SNES ROM files into the "Roms-Universal" directory

*) Notes about the Snes9x emulator:
- There are currently two different versions of Snes9x available at:
https://www.morphos-storage.net/?find=snes
- The older 1.43 seems to be much faster and supports overlay
- The newer 1.53 has more advanced features like video filters and
controller options
- Configure the executable path from the Settings tab in the GUI if you
install 1.43 or want to switch between versions


USAGE NOTES
-----------

- The GUI is hidden when the emulator is running, but it will re-appear when
you quit the emulation (by pressing Esc or q keys)
- Program settings can be saved by selecting the Save option in the program's
pull-down menu
- The settings will be saved to the ENVARC:MUI/SNESMUI.cfg file


HISTORY
-------

Version 0.2:
- Fixed a bug with missing images
- Added more audio options

The whole GUI was a request by another user, and it was just a quick project for fun to fulfill his wish in a minimum time. I could have made it simplier, but took the inspiration from the OS4 program, because why not to go a bit over the top in design-wise for once. You can see the whole discussion here:
https://morph.zone/modules/newbb_plus/viewtopic.php?topic_id=13425&forum=9#154419

I mention where you can download (HunoPPC's) archive with additional graphics in the ReadMe, so if you go there, it should be obvious where credits and thanks should go in that respect. His release seems to have stricter copyright disclaimer nowadays, but it wasn't the case at the time when I created and released my program, so it's up to user if he feels that he can use the graphics anymore.

Maybe there should be a screenshot without the additional graphics showing the possibilities, if that feels misleading. And maybe I should ask for a written permission to advertise HunoPPC's work in this kind of program before adding a mention about him in the documentation... it might be that he doesn't want to be connected to a project on different platform.

ok, then apologize.
As gui looks like hunoppc gui and with such images seems a clone.

know such images aren't done by hunnoppc, but IMO e deserves some acknowledgment.

sorry for the hassle.

The program itself contains freely usable images from Wikimedia Commons and nothing more is required or provided. If you want to install additional material, for example, from HunoPPC's release, then they will be displayed in the program. But the additional graphics can be obtained from other sources too, or made by yourself.

i think these logos are not AmigaOS4 specific... https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snes9x#/media/Fichier:Snes9x_logo.png for example.

In readme only THX goes to:
- Neil Pearson for proof-reading

but IIRC images are from Hunoppc original AOS4 snes9xGUI and no acknowledgments? :-/
