HowTo / Notes

Make sure the video mode is set to Direct3D (default) and stretching off. After loading a game, toggle the menu bar at least one time (press Escape), this will display the video properly, but the actual viewing area will be smaller than the main window. To increase it, change the "Output Image Processing" to something other than "None" or "Force 1X." Change the sound mode to Snes9x DirectSound to make sound work normally. If you tried running in full screen and then quit the application (even after restoring the window), the window will appear maximized every time you restart it. Click the window restore button to return it to normal. Depending on how you did it, the window may remain "stuck" like this, but you can fix it permanently by editing the snes9x.conf file directly and changing the "Window:Maximized" option from TRUE to FALSE. You may also manually change the default window dimensions this way, aspect ratio, default window position upon startup, and many other things.
