SNES PowerPak firmware v3.00 »MUFASA« updated

Aside from several usability improvements, this build fixes bugs that prevented some games from working properly, so updating is highly recommended. ;-)

Download SNES PowerPak firmware v3.00 »MUFASA« build #11331 (source included)

Note that if you have any previous v3.00 build already installed, you only need to copy UPDATE.ROM to the /POWERPAK folder on your CF card, start up your PowerPak, go to the settings menu, and select "Check for firmware update." After the upgrade flashing procedure has finished (i.e., the PowerPak intro screen appears), power-cycle your SNES just to be sure, and you're all set. :-D

Changes since v3.00 (build #11310):

  • merged all file browsing routines (there were 4 by now) into a single subroutine, this makes future additions/corrections to the file browser much easier :-)
  • rewrote page-by-page navigation, you can now flip through the "pages" of a directory indefinitely (i.e., no forced "stop" at the beginning and end of the file listing)
  • added feature: when you return to a directory's parent directory, the cursor will automatically be placed on the subdirectory you left for convenience. :-) Caveat: The stack is used to preserve the necessary data (8 bytes per directory), so the amount of subfolder levels is limited (still well over 500 though ... :-D )
  • added a file size check to the directory loading routine, 0-byte files are skipped now instead of producing a CF card error
  • added ikari's fix for Soul Blazer intro music
  • fixed a DMA issue causing problems (at least) with Bust-a-Move/Puzzle Bobble, King of Dragons, and Super Mario Allstars & World
  • fixed a potentially critical bug related to accumulator size in the same routine (SDRAM buffering portion)
  • added a hint to the settings menu alerting the user to return there and save the settings after selecting a new theme

On a side note, the source code is available on GitHub as well, so if you should encounter any potential bugs, feel free to open an issue there, and I'll look into it ASAP.

Long live the SNES PowerPak! 8-)

Theme für sd2snes

Zur Abwechslung mal keine neue PowerPak-Firmware (die wird noch etwas auf sich warten lassen; aber das Warten wird sich lohnen, versprochen!), sondern ein von mir neu kompiliertes Menü für das sd2snes.

Neben dem neuen Logo von Fish gibt es, wie man unschwer erkennen kann, einen blauen Hintergrund sowie eine neue Font zu bestaunen. ;-)


Einfach die menu.bin auf der SD-Karte durch diese Datei (die dazu natürlich umbenannt werden muss) ersetzen. Voraussetzung ist die bereits installierte aktuelle Firmware v0.1.6.

Viel Spaß! 8-)

Happy Halloween!

I have something for you to celebrate. :-D

Download Unofficial SNES PowerPak firmware v2.02 (source included)

As with the previous releases, just copy the contents of the "POWERPAK" directory from the archive root onto your CF card, power on your SNES, and you'll be prompted to update. :-) Make sure that you have v2.00 (non-beta) or v2.01 already installed if you want to do an easy upgrade using the in-system flasher. In case you need any of the previous versions, grab it from the SNES PowerPak firmware page.

Happy PowerPak gaming! 8-)

Unofficial SNES PowerPak firmware v2.01

As with the previous release, just copy the contents of the "POWERPAK" directory from the archive root onto your CF card, power on your SNES, and you'll be prompted to update. :-) (Note that you have to have v2.00 already installed for the flash updater to work. If you haven't, go ahead and grab the previous version from the SNES PowerPak firmware page!)
