This is a fork from 173210/snes9xTYL and has the following changes:

snes9xTYL Mod 171017.

- Fixed a bug on snes9xTYL Mod 171008 that may corrupt savestates on some games.
- Fixed a bug on Super Mario RPG that was causing graphical glitches on battles if speedhacks from snesadvance.dat were not enabled.
- Improved accuracy of Super FX emulation.
- Replaced SA1 option on MISC->Hack/debug menu for SFX overclock to control speed/accuracy.
- Added a new option to adjust sound volume level on SOUND menu (Higher values can cause noise on some games).
- Added compatibility for SD Gundam GX, and Top Gear 3000/The Planet's Champ TG3000.
- Fixed Dungeon Master.
- Added speedhack for Ace o Nerae (and his english translation: Aim for the Ace v1.2) from snes9x 3DS.
- Added Brunnis input lag fix from snes9x2010 (Reduce input lag by 1 frame).

Important: Make sure to backup your SAVES and/or S9XTYLSAVES folders just in case something goes wrong. Previous version 171008 has a bug that may corrupt savestates on some games so It was deleted.

If someone still have issues with savestates on snes9xTYL Mod 171017, let me know please. Thanks.

Doesn't work for me, PSP-1000 CFW 6.60 ME.

Tested both versions of snes9xTYL Mod 170521.

s9xTYLcm_mod_170521 try to load the game until psp shutdown, it happens with all my games.
s9xTYLmecm_mod_170521 gives error when trying to load game, "couldn't allocate memory", it happens with all my games.

I'm playing with s9xTYLmecm 0.4.2 without problems. Any help please?


Edit: tested Snes9xTYLcm Rev. 091127 MOD R28 and it's working for me too, so there must be some problem with s9xTYLcm_mod_170521.

Yes, maybe it's a problem of the low memory from PSP-1000 model, but older versions are working, only latest version doesn't work.

As I said in one of my previous posts, I have tested Snes9xTYLcm MOD R26 and s9xTYLmecm 0.4.2 (no mod version) working without problems.

I have tried R27, when I press X to load a game, PSP freezes and shutdown, it doesn't show the blue boxes with loading messages, just freezes and shutdown.
R28 from github link you provided it's working but unstable, with screen freezes in some games like captain commando, it was working very well in 0.4.2 (no mod). Also when launching emulator it's always asking for creating the saves dir, even if the saves dir already in memory stick.
On Snes9xTYL Mod 170521 no problems with saves dir and it almost show some loading messages inside a blue box (checksum, loading settings...) PSP freezes and shutdown while showing loading default settings blue box.

R26 it's working perfect, it load games without problems and no screen freezes.

There's no one emulator version than if I select Ltrigger+Rtrigger for menu, it doesn't work. This is for mod and original (no mod) emulators too.

Remember this is a PSP-1000 with 6.60 ME firmware.
