I was going to add more features before releasing but I don't have much time these days to work on ZsnexBox. I decided to go ahead and release what I have because there are some cool new features. Otherwise, it might have been another month before I would have finished the other things. I didn't get a chance to add the skin switching so anyone who makes a new skin, just include your ZsnexBox23.ini with all the text/image adjustments.

---------------------------------------------------------

ZsnexBox 2.3

What's New:

-New GUI thanks to the excellent work of Neverwill.
-Fixed High Res Mode 7 filter.
-Added option to resize the GUI. These settings are separate from the emulation screen settings.
-Added various animation effects to the GUI
-Changed the default skin to the new Zelda skin by Neverwill
-Added a Splash screen
-Added a main menu screen
-Added two new menus: Image Options and Text Options.
-Added the option to move resize most of the GUI text. This includes all the text on the Rombrowser. This will allow people to make GUI's with the rombrowser on the right side of the screen for example.
-Added option to change the FPS and animation speed of the rombrowser animation
-Added support for a preview overlay image. This has to be in png format and ideally will contain a border with a transparent middle.
-Added option to disable the preview overlay
-Added screenshot transparency. The transparency level can be set to 0-255.
-Changed the background music to one more fitting to a Zelda theme.
-Rewrote the video render code to provide even more emulation speedup.
-Fixed (?) the invisible third digit in the cheat code menu. Please post if this digit is still invisible in 720p or 1080i.

Installation:
1) Unzip the archive with 7-zip (http://www.7-zip.org/)
2) Copy the contents to the Xbox hard drive or make an XISO and burn
3) Run the default.xbe to start the emulator

Notes:
-If you get garbled graphics, open up the ZsnexBox23.ini and change the HDMode to 1 (720p) or 2 (1080i) if you have HD support and it is enabled.

-The image/animations may not be correctly placed in HD modes. However, nearly everything about the GUI can be adjusted.


Thanks:
-Neverwill for all the artwork
-Xport for more code and help
-GogoAckman
-Anyone I forgot

nes6502 - you kick ASS!

how's the multicore idea going on?

Thanks again,

Great work nes6502. I have one question to ask. Does your emulator support special graphics packs for example for Far East of Eden. I had a hard time getting it to work on XSNES9X for some reason. If not, are you planning on adding this feature in the near future. Keep up the great work.

No. The special graphics packs are not suported. However, I have never tried them, so maybe they do work. But I don't think so. I'll look into this at some point.

ZsnexBox 2.3.7z is not an xbox application. It is an archive that contains an Xbox application. It must be extracted on windows before transferring to the Xbox.

I packaged it like this because it made an archive 1MB smaller then using rar and because the 7-zip archiver is free.

Great job nes6502 and neverwill (and anyone else involved) for a great release with a fantastic new gui. This emulator just keeps getting better all the time.

The only question I have is about the background music in the menu. After the Zelda theme finishes, it jumps to what I'm assuming is an Xbox soundtrack that is stored on my Xbox (It is really just playing the New Jersey Devils goal horn I added to NHL2k6, which is considered a soundtrack). Is there any way to disable this so it just repeats the Zelda theme?

Thanks again and nice job, keep up the great work smile.gif

I'll see if I can fix this. I don't have any Xbox soundtracks on my hard drive so I never noticed this. The Zelda music repeats for me.
