And if I'm not asking too much a xml file also (hyperlist)

I added it as a collection but haven't checked the database yet. Lemme know if anyone's interested in helping with metadata for this.

Not sure if this helps but I'm sure the hacked games pack xml has all the msu titles in it so should be copyable from there if ones feeling lazy. Can't confirm this for sure atm as I'm not home atm.

Just thought I would double check the Hacked Games XML before bed and it does include a bunch of entries for MSU-1. I

don't have time tonight but can edit it down tomorrow if no one else gets round to it. Uploaded the database for hacked games

in case anyone is interested. Credit for this XML to ZeroJay and Jumpman311.

Ok Here is a Running database for the SNES CD only about a third of the entries have full metadata at this point but it is enough to get the system up and running

in hyperspin.

This is pretty much just setting up a second instance of snes. Just set it up like you would snes and make sure yur using a msu1 capable emulator. I honestly believe that this system should be treated as a preference for a seperate wheel and not a system itself. Any official game is just a snes game with sprinkles on top and anything new are just rom hacks that take advantage of the msu1 ability. Dont get me wrong, I have all these on my snes wheel as a second option and if i play any of those games i always go for the msu1 versions. I guess what im saying is that we are making a subwheel of the Hacked Games wheel just because, once upon a time nintendo and sony or phillips had an idea.

Just to throw it out there, there are a bunch of awesome zelda hacks out there making use of the msu1 abilities.

I think most of them are just taken from re releases on newer systems. Dont quote me cause I never played it, but i think the cutscenes are takin from the ps1 port of chrono trigger and used on the snes version because of that hidden msu1 ability. Basically a smart person figured out how to utilize that hidden gem but the game had alrdy been re released on ps1. Not downing it, the whole thing is awesome. But its pretty much just a hack job

actually according to smwiki,  the MSU-1 was developed by the guy behind the Bsnes emulator. and in the case of the chrono trigger enhanced edition you are right.

I should have googled it earlier, but it seems the zelda cutscenes are taken from an fan Animated zelda series. as far as hacking goes, these are very impressive. and I consider these a well deserved addition to my setup :) it's a shame that these roms are behind a mega repository. I refuse to pay for a subscription, if only for the fact that I have t setup a new webpay account.

I read into it a little when i first found out about it looking for zelda hacks. The impression I got was it was a feature incorporated in the snes that they put in with hopes of expansion and the bsnes creator was just smart enough to incorporate it into his emulator. But honestly I have no idea. I dont wanna sound like im hating on the whole idea, I just dont want people to get the wrong idea and start thinking this was an actual system they never heard about

Dont believe they host roms and i sure hope they dont but https://www.zeldix.net/ is a great site to check out for those wanting to find out more about it and they also have some pretty tight zelda projects going on there. havent been there in a while but I love these guys

Maybe one guy is hosting them has them on mega but you could always find another place to download them or apply the patches yourself. Chances are the audio files will be on a file sharing site of some sort due to the size.

You no, I read that a few times in the past and breezed through it so fast that I didnt even realize the genius Byuu was bringing to the table. Didnt realize how much storage that msu chip could handle and remember that CD's where new back then. It makes sense when u think of a full soundtrack but 4gb at that time. If only Nintendo would of just let me enjoy Ocarina of Time in 2d. They mite of created the ps2 back in '94

I think you over estimate the age of the MSU1 chip.

I can't to seem to get this working using bsnes (retroarch) but can run them using a version of snes9x.

I have tried a couple of MSU games, and I am really digging it; the only thing that I could not find (maybe nothing can be done), is to change the music volume. I find the MSU hacks to have louder music in comparison to the rest of the sfx, which in some cases I cannot even hear those.

There are updates released that fix this problem with audio
