    Oh I see what he's saying. In that case you need to uninstall and then install. Personally, I didn't see any chances in my SNESC until I uninstalled and then reflashed the custom kernel again.

    Reflash yes, resync no. But if you want to resync and you already deleted the games from your PC, just use the FTP to find the folder where you have all your games in the SNESC, then download them to your PC and put them in the 'games_snes' folder in your hakchi folder. Once you open hakchi, it should have all the games on the list again.

    If the games you added are in the 'games_snes' folder in your hakchi folder, then they should be on the hakchi list. If you synched without having those games on the hakchi list, then they will be deleted from your SNESC.

    If for some reason you don't have any games in the 'games_snes' folder in your hakchi folder, then look at my post above as to how to download them from the SNESC with the FTP.

    How do I reflash without having to resync? Just flash the kernal in the latest hakchi and leave it at that?

    Is there anyone working to duplicate the bordered icons to borderless?

    I hope someone works on a hack to allow Super Scope games to be played with the controller. I wants sum Battleclash and Metal Combat.

    If I want to install a game that only runs on Retroarch, does Retroarch show up as it's own icon or it hidden and streamlined?

    I've some basic googling, do I have to install Retroarch manually for these games or does hitting "yes" on the Hakchi prompt do everything for me?

    Retroarch is invisible in the SNESC. The only way you'll know it's there is by pressing Start+Select to open the emulator menu during a game you selected to be played with Retroarch. But if you DO want to have retroarch as an icon, then there's a mod you can download that will do that.

    To install retroarch, just drag and drop the retroarch_cores zip on top of the hakchi window, it will ask you perform the 'hold reset and press power' step again, do so, and the retroarch codes you select will be added. To force a SNES game to load with retroarch, just add --retroarch at the end of the command-line area. Newer hakchis will detect games that don't work and will ask if you want to use an emulator (retroarch) to boot that specific game.

    Retroarch will work automatically with problematic games, the only thing that won't work is rewind. You need to install Retroarch and SNES cores in the modules menu of Hackchi.

    Edit: beat, and with a way better explanation too. Follow that post.

    Thanks! I didn't want to install it if it was going to be its own icon.

    There are plenty by googling.

    *edit*
    And a lot of fake ones. It's incredible how many "sealed" SNES games are on ebay with fake/custom boxarts.

    Let me take one of the real ones and clean it up. You won't find high quality scans of the real ones, only custom/fake ones.

    I tried to find a find a plain (Not Greatest Hit) US box but the ones I'm looking at don't look very clean, sadly.
    I guess I could always try to remake one in a generic frame.

    So glad this thread migrated! Anyone got tips for thumbnail scrolling?

    I replaced the small icons with sprites, and the cursor goes to off-screen thumbnails when I'm selecting games.

    Edited in responses for anyone who has the same Q:
    Appreciate the help. I was hoping there was some workaround other than limiting the games, but it's easy to add/remove titles anyway.

    Removing the thumbnails sounds like a pretty good idea too. I'll see how I like it.

    You have too many games per page. Limit your pages/folder to 35 games to avoid the thumbnails going off screen.

    I opted to remove them. There's no negative side-effects if you do in the latest version of Hakchi.

    I might have missed this, but I heard there was a way to install a mod so you can use buttons to get back to the home menu. Is this the case? I didn't see it anywhere.

    It’s in the menu options. I’m not near my computer at the moment but it’s under something like Tools > Controller Hacks

    Just wanted to say thanks for everyone's efforts. I'm really happy this is a thing and thanks to everyone who made the whole thing painless for dolts like me who aren't that tech savy (it's super easy). And those who provided awesome box arts for me to steal. Looking forward to posting. c:

    Here's what I did to go from 2.20 to 2.21f:
    (1) Copy your existing 'config', 'dump', 'games' and 'games_snes' folders to the latest Hakchi2 folder
    (2) The list of games should appear exactly where you left them
    (3) Run 'Flash Custom Kernel' and you're set

    Picked up one of these today and immediately ran to this thread. It's super impressive how easy this tool makes the whole process. Automatically Googling for cover art was an unexpected but brilliant touch.

    I have a Super Nt coming my way next year that I'm much more excited about, but this is a really cool thing to have. It's extremely portable, so even with an FPGA box around I can envision plenty of use cases for it. It's also pretty awesome to have two shiny, pristine, officially manufactured SNES controllers. My originals still work like the day I got 'em, but they're not exactly in mint condition.

    I did one for myself for Mystic Ark. I couldn't find a clean version of the original box art that would crop decently to fit a SNES style box, so I used the artwork from the soundtrack CD.

    And since I have Imgur open, here's my Lennus II (Paladin's Quest II) art, too, in case anyone wants it.

    I might want to redo that since after I saved it, it dawned on me that the purple arrow on the box was used to point at the company's logo below on many official third-party boxes.

    Play Mystic Ark with retroarch. With Canoe there's a C7 error on chapter 5 and you won't be able to complete the game.

    There is also a Fix for Robotrek and for Soulblazer

    and the fix for robotrek is the same method as ActRaiser 2 and Terranigma .

    French-language Soul Blazer, at that. Still, should be documented all the same.

    At first I was a little scared to hack my SNES Mini as I didn't want to lose my FFVI savefiles, but after reading enough about it I decided to do it anyway. This was really easy! Now I'm thinking about switching to Switch icons and setting up game specific borders. Not this weekend though as I'm going on an Odyssey.

    Robin64 Thank you so much for this thread and all the work you have compiled. You and everyone else working on this have helped a great deal. I know kissing ass is half of what this new thread is so far, but I just had to get that out of the way.

    Also is there a Reset Era version of the hack thread? I have a nice little list i'd like to link. Lastly, i've been making my own custom box art. I kinda straight up didn't want actual snes boxes and wanted nice official and fan art instead with a logo. Anyways, my collection thus far can be found HERE (feel free to quote or link or whatever)

    Anyone managed to get Metroid - Phazon or Metroid - Super Zero Mission working? I've gotten many hacks up and working perfectly but these two I cannot. Crimson Echoes is obviously a no go too (or does it work with retroarch?)

    For some reason I'm seeing these as IMG tags within quotes (i.e. I see no images at all). This isn't the first time I've seen this, is it something on my end, or a ResetEra kink that needs to be fixed, or...?

    I asked a bit back if any BS titles work. I would love to get I Love Golf O.B. Club working.

    Oh yeah, Robin64 you should add this link to your OP. It really helped me get some games working in Hi Res mode. Secret of Mana gave me some issues for awhile but I managed to get the right one working :3

    It requires a special chip on real hardware and the native emulator (Canoe) obviously doesn't support it.
    EDIT: don't know if Retroarch supports it, though. I wouldn't think so but that could change.
    Anyways wouldn't one of the games eat up a substantial amount of memory space?

    Same. Started seeing it happen right after my account was activated. I'm wondering if the Dark Theme I installed just before then could be at fault but turning them off doesn't seem to do anything. Also only seems to occur w/ embedded or linked images that come from imgur.

    After some research, it seems to be a known issue (and oddly enough, on imgur's part, which is blocking ResetEra):

    Welp I’m here now! Hello ResetEra!

    I noticed that the shared compatibility doc has a lot of entries about skipping sound or changing pitch, which I’m sure most were due to the now-fixed hakchi slowdown bug.

    It’d be nice if the people who reported those could check again with the latest hakchi and update the doc if needed!

    As for myself I added that Battletoads in Battlemaniacs has missing shadows for the snake bodies in the Snake Pit. Though most people will never actually see this since it’s after the infamous bike tunnel level :P
