View Full Version : HELP: SNES4.2me not working on 3.40 OE-A

July 12th, 2007, 10:36
Whenever I boot up SNES4.2me, I get past the title screen (the part where Mario hits the ! block and the stars pop out), but after that my Memory Stick light on my PSP stays a solid orange and a blank screen shows up, forcing me to manually reboot the PSP. The emulator works only the 1st time after I put the emulator back on my PSP from my computer and I've tried reinstalling many times. I've run the emu from a 1.5 and 3.4 Kernel and get the same situation.

Any suggestions?

try deleting all the settings you have saved for the emulator... you must run the emulator from the 1.5 kernel

Yep, I have it in 1.5 Kernel and have deleted the emulator and re-added it many times. Only this time, I can't get past a black screen.

do you have any roms in the rom directory?

You must have roms.

I do have SNES ROMs in my directory.

Meanwhile, at the Hall of Justice, I've done some troubleshooting and have discovered no problems when only the emulators are put on my 8 GB memory stick. The SNES emu runs fine again and again and again. When adding PSX games to my /GAME directory, the SNES emu runs fine still. Last, I added some PSP ISOs and well....it worked.

Don't ask me how or why.....but the SNES emulator worked. Don't look at me, I have no idea why it froze up before but NOW it's working....but...it is....

I'm not holding my breath though.....I'm expecting it to go out on me sometime soon. I hate finding solutions and you don't know what the hell you did.

It has been proven that 8 gb memory sticks have problems when accessing the 1.5 kernel (thus, meaning that any homebrew/ emulators will have trouble, but ISOs are fine as they use the 3.40 kernel)

1.5 didn't used to support 8 gig sticks, so it's not usually compatible with homebrew. Use the 8 gig stick for psx games and, other things. ;)

Use the other stick for homebrew.

Sounds good. I have a 2 GB stick that I use for my Sony Cybershot but I can pick up another 2 GB stick for cheap.

Appreciate the help guys.

Totally off topic, but just gotta say that I love the avatar, MMXcalibur.
