Bsnes no longer launching .zip files?!

Hey everyone,

I wanted to mess around with various bsnes cores and the last time I tried this (it was quite a while ago) I remember bsnes accepting .zip files. However, it seems that now it only accepts uncompressed files. has something changed or is my memory of it just wrong?

I also get an error that bsnes was unable to decompress the game at runtime in retroarch error logs. Also I noticed this makes retroarch crash a lot when using bsnes. Plus bsnes doesn’t seem to load the DSP firmware anymore for special chip games like starfox. Seems like retroarch is not keeping up with bsnes changes.
