Is there any reason why the Snes9x went back to the version from 2 months ago? (1.61 ad89b7ac) I only see the description “Sync to upstream” but we have version 1.62.3 for a long time
Today’s Snes9x update is a year ago versionSomething strange is happening with the updates of this core, or it’s a bug.
ah, weird! I’m looking into it now.
ok, looking into it, it’s not an old version, it’s just cherry-picked fixes that are old but weren’t included at the time for whatever reason.
The libretro core isn’t run in lockstep with upstream, so the histories have diverged quite a bit.
You can get the Updated Core from the SNES site/github
Though it should be done Automatically thru Retroarch
The Updated Version was up but now its Changed back to 1.61 Core
In the Snes9x history for the libretro core, I don’t see a 1.62.3 version anywhere. It looks like it doesn’t exist at all, but I’m no expert:However, we had the latest version for about 2-3 weeks (and it was downgraded to 1.61) I guess someone didn’t notice that there is a version 1.62.3 and adds fixes to the old version 1.61 Unless I’m wrong… I’ll try to ask @bearoso what’s going on.
I don’t think bearoso keeps up with our fork’s comings and goings. It’d be ds22x who handles syncing/cherry-picking. You could open an issue on the libretro snes9x fork repo if you like.
I already asked him and he replied
Because it’s easy enough to implement and won’t impact an eventual resync.
Gone back to 1.62.3 version
