AntSnes for Symbian^3

Thanks for clpalmer:
——–
For those of you who want a better experience on S^3, here’s a modified version of AntSnes that supports multitouch and has full set of on-screen buttons. Also runs much faster, close to 60 FPS w/out sound and usable with it. The audio might sound a bit glitchy at the moment, though, due to some optimizations.
This is completely un-official and Summeli can re-release this when he finds time through his proper channels and with the source, but at least here’s something to play with in the meantime.
Requirements: S^3 device with Qt 4.7.2 or 4.7.3 libraries installed

——–
Update:
For those of you who want audio to work a bit better, give this a go:
http://www.freefilehosting.net/antsness3byclpalmer
Was only trying to get multitouch, full onscreen keyboard and better FPS with my last one so didnโ€™t care that audio was a bit borked.
This one should improve audio glitchyness, but might be a bit slower when audio is enabled.
Again, not an official release, and Summeli will do that when he sorts his stuff out.
——–
Yet another update ๐Ÿ™‚ This one is to hopefully re-enable hardware key mapping.
http://www.mediafire.com/?17yezzpzv8et3kz
Again, wasnโ€™t paying attention to hardware keys when I didnโ€™t the mods as N8 doesnโ€™t really have many you can use anyways. In any case, this should hopefully fix it. The only keys you can map, at least on N8, are the light-press camera key (donโ€™t hard press or youโ€™ll exit) and the volume keys, but the volume keys act wierd because hitting them seems to deliver two sets of key down/up events. Youโ€™ll notice that if you hold them, you get a brief press, then a release, then another press until you release it.
Hopefully will work better for other keys on keyboard or attached controllers. Let me know if itโ€™s still busted.
——–
I’ll tweak the buttons a bit, and then I’ll make a new version.

    Nice one Summeli! Good job! ๐Ÿ˜›
    I get out of symbian scene (got iphone but still have i8910) but is nice to know that you are still on symbian scene! ๐Ÿ˜›

  2. krisq says:

    Awesome job! One problem though. ‘Load ROM’ doesn’t work for me. Nothing happens when I click it. The rest of the buttons works fine. Could be because I’ve signed it with my own certificate?
    I have Qt 4.7.3 installed.

  3. Great Work says:

    Thanks! Been waiting for this for a while. Good work, I would love to see gpsp working on my C6 01 soon! Thanks Again!

  4. h3nk3 says:

    Nice work! Tried Super Mario World and it worked fine on the E7. Sound is a bit glitchy as it sometimes flips out but usually works.
    Since the E7 has a keyboard (and the upcoming E6). Maybe configuring the keyboard to conrol AntSnes would be good? I find the touch controls not so good (like most touch controls).

  5. krisq says:

    Awesome job! I have a problem though. ‘Load ROM’ button does not work for me. The rest of the buttons is fine. I have Qt 4.7.3 installed. Does it require newest Qt Mobility too?

  6. Matoking says:

    Sadly I’m having a problem. I could load files/ROMs with your emulators until some time ago. Now AntSnes (the non-Qt version) would fail with “Unable to execute due to file security reasons” and the Qt emulators wouldn’t show the file selection menu when “Load ROM” or “Select BIOS” in case of gpsp is selected.
    This problem appeared before I installed Qt 4.7.3, so I don’t think that’s the case. I’m not very keen on resetting my phone’s settings, so I’ll try to uninstall some apps to see if they would fix the problem. Some application is probably conflicting with the emulators.

  7. Tiririca no congresso says:

    Thanks Summeli.
    Working in my N8. Just the sound of some games are little glicht, (heavier games just like final fantasy, secret of mana).
    But nice job.

  8. Andreas Specht says:

  18. IconRocksBro says:

    YES! Thanks alot Sumelli, works awesome on my N8… Cant wait for Gpsp/Psx4All d( >< )b

  19. Ace_Trigger says:

    just thought i would let you know the wii-remote is not working with this version of antsnes or at least when connecting it to my n8 by mobipad i haven’t tried the nokia big screen method yet. When i have time ill check out the nokia big screen method and ill let you know.

    Great work with the audio, all games i have tried have worked full speed with flawless audio! Well done!

  22. warcoke says:

    super mario all satrs doesn’t work ๐Ÿ™

  23. DAEX says:

    \(^^)/It’s awesome! Thanks clpalmer and summeli, this earth only you can make emulator run on Symbian devices, and no body can make it. I am still waiting GPSP for symbian^3, hope you can update for us. ๐Ÿ™‚

  24. Tchuck says:

    I wanna for S60v5 with audio too, please.

  25. Matoking says:

    Thanks to both Summeli and clpalmer, I’m having a blast playing through Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy III (or VI) and Earthbound, although I’m stuck in a certain part in Chrono Trigger that involves pressing three buttons at once.
    You should make it possible to assign multiple keys to one button. (Key assignment doesn’t seem to work with N8 at all yet)

    • Antonio says:

      Yes, apparently key assignment is not working. I tried to assign the keys on my Wiimote controller and it apparently was assigning the keys, but when I tried to play, none of them worked.

  26. Anton says:

    I’m stuck in the same place as Matoking is. Key config doesn’t work with any of my N8’s buttons, either, and I tried hooking up a USB keyboard to the phone and while keystrokes are registered by the configuration, nothing happens when I press buttons. I tried exotic things like using the .sst save state files in other emulators (works on Snes9X as expected, since AntSNES is a port), pressing the three-button thing and saving a new state over, but when I save state again, AntSNES won’t read the new states. The one thing that SHOULD work would be replacing the .SRM files, but I don’t know where AntSNES keeps its .srms.

  27. DAEX says:

    Tested 9 games, there are Super Mario World, Cannon Fodder, Contra III – The Alien Wars, Mega Man X 3, Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Bomberman 5, Super Mario All-Stars, Super Mario Yoshi’s Island and Zelda – A Link to the Past.
    Super Mario Yoshi’s Island, Cannon Fodder and Super Bomberman 5 can load on emulator, and smooth also, the one problems is touch button cannot work.
    Open Super Mario Yoshi’s Island will cause emulator crash.
    Hope can fix it soon~ Thanks clpalmer and summeli

  28. Bogaplatense says:

    Thanks to this adaptation for symbian^3. I`ve installed on my NOKIA N8 and runs perfect.!
    But, my question is….does anybody knows wether is it there any way to configure keys, so as to map the buttons to bluetooth keyboard or bluetooth zeemote stick, because i tried but cannot get to configure keys, doesnt recognice any key map.

    • clpalmer says:

      Yet another update ๐Ÿ™‚ This one is to hopefully re-enable hardware key mapping.

  29. Antonio says:

    Thanks A LOT for this clpalmer and summeli!
    Most games I tried worked flawlessly and very fast.
    Just some information about games I tested (I don’t know if it’ll be useful but here we go:)
    – Super Mario Kart worked perfectly (even with sound) before this “sound update”. Now it still works, but a bit slower at some parts (it was flawless before, about 30fps constantly with sound, now about 20~15fps with sound but still pretty much playable).
    – All other games I have tried got a pretty big improvement in sound emulation. Some games with sound that did not play correctly at all (just noise) are now playing correctly. As predicted, some games seem to be a bit slower now but IMO it’s better with correct sound emulation
    – Super Mario All Stars works, but after choosing a game and starting it, you can’t play. Pressing any of the keys don’t seem to even be recognized, the game is just getting emulated apparently fine but you can’t play.
    – Yoshi Island (all versions) do not work at all (emulator crashes – sad! I love this game and I really wanted to play it).
    – Top Gear 2 does not play (black screen, does not crash).
    All in all, thanks A LOT for this release! I am SO happy now! ๐Ÿ˜€
    I wish I knew something about programming to help you guys… I’m trying to learn though, starting with basic, C coding.

  30. TheOldLegend says:

    tryed gundam wings endless waltz with the sound update its bit slower like 10 or 15fps x.x but the sound is little better .. clpalmer and summeli ur the best developers thanks guys for this work u’ve made something really good now im happy with my n8 xD and if u ppl did snes emu i think u can psx emu too its not about processing power its about optimizations dont let anything get on ur ways ppl KEEP IT UP !!

  31. SoWErA says:

  32. Brad says:

    Tried both versions and my N8 said both files were corrupt.
    I’m not sure what QT version I have. Any way of checking? If they are old how do I update to 4.7.3?

  33. Nseries says:

  34. Mr.Helpful says:

    Your welcome. And yes, an updated version of Pico Drive would be awesome, Summeli. Although I’m looking forward to pcsx most of all ๐Ÿ™‚ And perhaps a new version of Gpsp ?

    • lucian says:

  36. kojiro says:

  37. Matoking says:

  38. LOL says:

  39. Help Me says:

    I need help,after I installed the Qt version 4.7.3 all AntSnesQt dont works anymore when I try to load a rom the emulator Crashes.Please help.

  40. Dean says:

    Yoshi’s island uses Super FX chip… all games that use this chip are too complex for mobile emulators at the moment

  41. Ashtray3250 says:

    clpalmer, when you updated gpsp for S^3? Or you are working by Antsnes and when released gpsp?p.S. sorry for my english

  42. Lucian says:

    clpalmer you can make a modification on picodrive?picodrive is a emulator of sega mega drive and sega cd,he is for S^3 but the keys is not fixed you cant press two buttons.I really want to play it on my s60v5,you can ask summeli to help you.

  43. SupaSolda says:

    Is this version only for S^3 devices?? because its not working on my 5235…just asking…thnx ๐Ÿ™‚

  44. Dude says:

    This is so awesome. Though with the update, sometimes the touchpad won’t work. Needs to be restarted to work again.

  45. Dude says:

    Also, why are you using .sst savestates? .zs* or .00* would be easier to modify.

  46. Anderson says:

    Summeli and cipalmer, here’s the Source Code of the Snes4Sym, please adapt it for the AntSnes for S60v5 and S^3:
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/snes4allx/

    • Summeli says:

      I’m not developing for S60 5th edition anymore, and the S^3 version runs at 60fps and supports audio, so I really don’t want to change away from the assembler optimized version.
      But I might even make an update for the 5th edition version after I have made the official S^3 release. Adding cpalmer’s audio fixes for S60 5th edition should be possible, and on 5th edition you should see quite big performance difference between the assembly-optimized core vs. c-core.
      But if you make the adaptation and have it running at the same speed I don’t mind taking in the contribution ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Anderson says:

        I understand that the S60v5 not wheel with a good speed, but this
        emulator that I spent already is good for S60v5, runs at a reasonable speed and not need mess with part of the emulation, but the only problem that it have needs repairing are the buttons touch which are very small, and that’s what I would request your help or of the cipalmer.

  47. ma_t14 says:

    All games I tried on my n8 do not work. Chrono Trigger and yoshis island crushed, final fantasy III and super mario all stars show a black screen. What should I do Summeli? Please help

  48. cansual says:

    Hello Summeli
    Thank you a lot for this amazing emulator, i hope you will continue your great work.
    And one question Summeli. do you think that it’s possible to connect usb controler over the n8 usb on to go.
    This would be very great and extremly perfect for playin.
    I hope this is possible to do.

  49. SoWErA says:

    I too would love if you make an upgraded s60v5 release for my Omnia hd(i8910) want better sound to use it 100% of my game time on phone. The Phone certaintly have enouth cpu and memory to emulate ๐Ÿ™‚

  50. acetrigger says:

    wii remote is now working perfectly when connected with mobipad

  51. Reg3e says:

    Hey clpalmer ๐Ÿ™‚ thank for your great work, but i have a request to ask, do you mind changing the grey background of the emulator to black? i know this will make the original game controller feel to the emulator but i’m concern of the battery after that constant switch on background, to shorten what i’m saying, make a low energy consumption version, i’ll post a link of a picture i’ve construct to show you what i mean

    http://forum.dailymobile.se/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=46724.0;attach=124831;image

    • Summeli says:

      better keys are coming soon ๐Ÿ˜‰ Probably even during this week.
      I’m making transparent keys which will overlap a bit over the emulation screen. That’s going to be even better.

      • lucian says:

        Summeli,you can take the picodrive(sega mega drive/sega cd emulator for s^3) and make a modification for s60v5?The keys is not fixed,if You are interesed I give to you de source of picodrive.If you make this modification all of your fans will like it a lot ;p

        • Summeli says:

          I have the source already, but I’m using N8, so that’s my priority.

          • lucian says:

            So why not make the modification,for us users of s60v5?Man we love your work,EVERYONE who uses s60v5 want a picodrive for s60v5,you have fans all over the world,I’m bralizian I came to your blog all day and night all of my friends uses your emulators,please Summeli made the version of picodrive for us,your fans users of s60v5 and s^3,thanks man xD!!!

  52. cansual says:

    Wow that sounds great summeli a full screen emulation with transparent buttons on it.
    can’t wait for the update.
