    FCEU (NES Emulator)
    version: 1.2
    runs on firmware: 3.41 & under
    posted on: 10/27/10

    This is an NES emulator. Second to be released on the PS3. If you don’t know what an NES emulator is than you’ve been living under a rock.

    Include are two pkg files. One for running on firmware 3.41, and the other for firmware 1.92

    CURRENTLY IMPLEMENTED FCEU FUNCTIONS:
    - .zip support
    - SRAM support
    - State save
    - 4P Support
    - Settings saving and loading

    CONTROLS IN ROM MENU:
    Up - Go up
    Down - Go down
    Left - Go back five file entries
    Right - Go forward five file entries
    L1 - Go back one page
    R1 - Go forward one page

    Cross - (If directory selected) enter directory/ (if ROM selected) start ROM
    Triangle - Same as Cross
    Circle - (If not in root directory) Go back to previous directory
    L2 + R2 - (If you previously exited a ROM) return to game
    Select - Go to settings menu (see ‘CONTROLS IN SETTINGS MENU’ section)

    L2+L3 - State Load
    R2+R3 - State Save

    CONTROLS IN SETTINGS MENU:
    Up - Go up one setting
    Down - Go down one setting
    Left - Change setting to the left
    Right - Change setting to the right

    Circle - Go back to ROM menu

    EXPLANATION OF SETTINGS MENU:
    Display framerate - This will show the FPS (Frames Per Second) onscreen
    Current save state slot - Toggle FCEU save state slot.
    Resolution - Switch between resolutions - 480p mode, 720p mode and 1080p mode (depending on your monitor’s supported resolutions)
    Aspect Ratio - Switch between aspect ratios 4:3 and 16:10 (16:9 will come shortly, for now choose 16:10 on widescreen - perhaps small
    cutoff at left and right))
    Hardware Filtering - Switch between Linear interpolation (Bilinear filtering) and Point filtering.
    Control Style - Switch between original NES style or the more preferred SNES style.

    CONTROLS IN-GAME:
    Standard NES Controls (layout identical to NES controller)
    Better NES Controls (rotates input changing Square->B, Cross->A)

    R3 + L3 - Press these two buttons together while in-game to go back to the ROM browser menu.

    Right analog left / right - Adjust save state on the fly.

    R3 + L3 - Press these two buttons together while in-game to go back to the ROM browser menu.

    TIP: You can use any USB controller you like and it will map the buttons on the fly - it is even possible to hotswap joysticks - remove one from the
    USB port, replace it with another one - it should all work fine. even SNES-to-USB converters
    should work.

    To play a game with a USB controller as Player 1, start up your PS3 and rather than using the Sixaxis/DualShock3, plug in an USB port before
    connecting the controller to the PS3 - your USB pad should then become Controller 1.

    HD TV USERS:
    - For people running this on HDTVs complaining about input lag:
    - Turn off all post-processing filters you may have running - on Sony Bravia HDTVs, display Motion Flow (this also causes input lags
    with most games in general, not just this SNES emu. If your HDTV has a ‘Game’ mode or something of the sort, select that as well.

    PERFORMANCE NOTES:
    - 100% everywhere, let me know otherwise.

    PLANNED IMPROVEMENTS:
    - Filters
    - GameGenie

    summary: Can now read and save from config file - fceu.conf. This will be part of our general framework now - currently saves the settings ‘PS3Smooth’ and ‘PS3KeepAspect’ - next step would be to save the controller type too and the savepaths (SRAM, ROM dir, etc)

    And more (see change log in file).
