PS3 Snes9X v4.4.5: HD Settings/4XSoft

It's been a while since we last reported on the SNES9x emulator port for the PS3. Today, squarepusher2 brings us version 4.4.5 of the emu, which comes with some exciting new options. The new version features a brand new high definition mode, as well as a new graphics shader option called 4xSoft. Squarepusher2 has also announced that online netplay will be coming to the next release of SNES9x.

OK, I promised Netplay was going to be in the next release - but it's going to have to wait until the next release. Sorry about that. BTW - check out the HD version this time - try it out in combination with 4xSoft and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

* New HD Version - every game runs at the SNES' high-resolution mode (512x448 interlaced mode). Try this with the right shader on (4xSoft) and this can make the games look beautiful. Both progressive (1080p/720p/480p/576p) and interlaced modes (480i/576i/1080i) work with this - try interlaced for best results.

* 4xSoft combined with this HD version also beautifies the pseudo hi-res transparent background layers in Kirby's Dreamland 3.

* Triple Buffering option added - enabled by default. Faster graphics/shader performance with triple buffering turned on - some potential input lag with triple buffering on - turn it off in case you experience problems of this nature.

* USB/Bluetooth mouse can be used now for Mouse/Super Scope games.

* Primal Rage works again.
