So I'm hoping this is the thread you can ask for help on certain titles that you're trying to work on the SNES Classic, 'cause I got a few. I hope I can some help with these. Sorry if these issues have been brought up before, I wish this board's software had a better search feature to search threads first.
Anyways, here are my issues:
~Dragonball Z Hyper Dimension: I keep getting a black screen followed by a C7 error after I reset. I keep trying to get the 2010 English patch version working but even with the Canoe Patch it still just does not want to work.
~DOOM: I hear this may be a lost cause just because of the fact that it's a shoddy port but I'm gonna add it for the hell of it. This lagged really bad with 1 rom and then I replaced it and now its just a black screen (strangely enough no C7 error with a reset like with DBZ HD just returns to the menu).
~Mighty Morphin Power Rangers Fighting Edition: This is an oddball. game was running fine until you start the match, then the sprites would bug out but it would still play just with glitched sprites. tried applying the Canoe Patch and it made things worse! now I can't even get past the VS. screen without it crashing.
~Super Bomberman 4: Got the japanese version to work fine but the english patch version just is a buggy sprite mess. it's bomber man so it's no real loss if I can't get the english patch working but I'm just gonna try anyways.
Theirs also Earthworm Jim 2 and Primal Rage. no problems as of yet with these games but they are seriously lacking sound effects and music, I heard it's a common problem but I can't find anything recent about fixing the sound issues on these games or if they been patched to be fixed yet.
Again thank you for the help on these. I hope I don't sound too much like a new guy with a broken record lol.
I tested more precisely the game you mentioned, (cause I had already played some without any issues on my SNESC) :
- DBZ hyper dimension works just fine for me (with or without the english translation) : absolutely no issues encountered with sluffy's patch
- Power rangers, the fighting edition : exactly the same: it works like a charm for me (with patched rom used)
- Doom : I tested on canoe and on Higan (PC) and I honestly don't see noticeable (accurancy) differences between these 2 versions : same very minor slowdown (with slight music distorsion) at some rare spots. I didn't noticed special lag on canoe, nothing uncomfortable. But maybe I'm wrong here, I am not used to this game.
For EarthwormJim2, No, we tested a lot of different presetID to solve these major sound issues but no improvement at all. The problem is much more complex and sluffy's quit the scene before finding any solution. (More than that the game freezes at the begining of level 2)
However, for Primal Rage, it's a good catch here, because nobody had never reported any issues on this game (considering the compatibility sheet). And Yes, you're right, a bunch of various sounds are missing (the more noticeable are the "RAGE" voice at the beginning of a battle or the victory yell of the victory character at the end of a battle). Preset ID EF10 or EC10 have no effect to correct that.
For the games that don't work with you, be sure to use correct roms from the no-intro set and don't use SFROM Tool in a first time : patch them manually with lunar ips (with the patch into the compatibility sheet) and only then, put them in hakchi. then you can also add a translation patch (for example in DBZ hyper dimension, that don't require header rom)
P.S : I didn't tested Bomberman4 translated; maybe later.
