AntSnesQt 0.7.1: Supports Samsung I8910 and SE Satio/Vivaz

AtnSnes is Snes9x emulator for Symbian. It is actually based on DrPocketSNES version 6.4.4, which in turn is based on snes9x 1.39. This one will only work for S60 5th edition phones. Symbian^3 users, don’t bother trying, the AntSnes 0.8.5 for Symbian^3 should be much better for you.
The newest update adds support for Samsung I8910 and Sony Ericsson Sation and Vivaz.
Thanks for the Samsung & SE support for faenil
What’s new

  • Works now on Samsung I8910 and SE Satio/Vivaz
  • Fixed manual frameskip ( you’ll still get crashes if you change it away from AUTO with Audio ON, so using that option is not recommended)
  • Fixed a crash: “if no ROM was selected and you pressed a continue the emu crashed.”

The Big D-Pad

Know issues:

  • PAL ROMs do not work’
  • The volume control slider works only if you drag it into new position (tapping a new level doesn’t work)

1. Qt 4.7.3 is required.

2.  Download the AntSnesQt.sis
3. AntSnesQt requires the SWEvent capability. The SwEvent is required for key mapping: Now you can map call/end call etc. buttons for the AntSnes usage. Therefore a new step is required to install the SW.
Go to SymbianSigned and sign the AntSnesQt sis for your own phone IMEI.
Step 1. Register to symbian signed  Gmail / Hotmail email adresses are banned from the symbian signed site, so you must use some other email service provider.
Step 2. Sign the sis-file by yourself with the symbian signed web UI.

  • Your Phone IMEI  (you can obtain it digiting *#06# on your phone)
  • Your EMAIL Address (gmail hotmail etc. are banned, however Nokia’s email address is working)
  • AntSnesQt SIS Package

And then the symbiansigned should email you the signed AntSnesQt for your phone. This package will be installable ONLY on your phone. This procedure works for all Symbian S60V5 Phones.
The alternative method is to hack your phone! You can find pretty good instructions from MameXM download site. (scroll to the bottom of page: Signing & Installing).
4. You might get warning like “not compatible with phone” just keep on going, it might still work 😉

    now audio work slow sometimes,but in 0.7 version audio was perfect

  2. 321 says:

    i am trying both versions – later give you information

  3. Lucian says:

    Another release!!!You are the best Summeli,wath do you think for a upgrade for gpsp?

  4. M. Abbasi says:

    Thanks, now it works on my i8910HD great. But sorry for faenil and i respect him, i should say, faenil has not made the packages for Samsung & Sony-Ericsson Users, he has just copied there from the QtSDK, so just the Samsung & Sony-Ericsson Users can not install QtMobility 1.1.3 package, becoas Nokia maked it JUST for her. One can try it…
    Since some weeks i have modified this packege (qtmobility_1_1_3.sis) to (qtmobility_1.1.3_ForAll.sis) to work REALLY Samsung & Sony-Ericsson. I have write it in my comment for your AntSnesQt 0.7
    First, install Qt 4.7.3, then Qtmobility_1.1.3_ForAll

    • faenil says:

      with due respect man, you should not say such words. I have written to Summeli that the files I uploaded were from Qt SDK, maybe he wrote that just to say that I created the package (the zip file with the files in inside) and I uploaded it on MY server, so I was actually making a favour to all of you.
      Just that 😉 If you follow my website you surely know I would never say a lie like this 😉 So do not write such things 🙂
      About QtMobility 1.1.3, there’s no need for a modified package, I uploaded the official package because everyone can use Nokia SIGNED package with my universal installing patch, which can be found here,
      There’s no need to mod packages 😉
      if you have any other doubt, just send me an email, you can find the address in my website, Support section 😉

      • faenil says:

        ps my universal patch is not for SE too, but do know that QtMobility is not needed for AntSnes 😉
        and if u’re wondering why summeli wrote Thanks to faenil for support for samsung and SonyEricsson, that’s because I made the fix to make the emulator work ok on i8910 and sony ericsson phones….
        hope everything’s clear now 😉

  5. M. Abbasi says:

    on i8910 HD, one should choise STERIO for the Audio

  6. Ibrahim says:

    Hey. I installed QT libraries and then easily installed AntSNES. However, games load in portrait mode with no controllers showing. What’s wrong?
    Please help me, this is my first time installing or using an SNES emulator. Thank you for all your hard work, both of you.

  7. gwilson says:

    hi, i am new and no experience on this emulator, I have installed AntSNES (following detailed instruction, thanks), I get some ROM from other places, but it always tell me my phone have not enough memory to run,any reason for that?

  8. Marcelinho says:

    Hi, i have installed QT4.7.3 and Antsnes 0.7.1, snes rom loaded OK, but however i touch the virtual START key on screen, there’s no response. So i can just “see” the game but no start a game. Please help me, thanks!
    GPSP runs well on my phone.

  9. Xscouter says:

    you want to deploy the multiplayer game mode?
    Thanks for the great emulator.
    keep up the good work = D
    you are the king

  10. 372466 says:

    I can’t install Qt 4.7.3 has this error 10254 and 4.7.2 has SWI error 18. GPSP works with Qt 4.6, though. Nokia really sucks hard with their software. I should buy an iPod Touch for my games instead of relying on an emulator for games.

  11. Lan says:

    i can’t install qt on vivaz says error -10254. please help.

  12. Giuseppe says:

    I want the n8 interface *-*

  13. Rhynazzo says:

    Wow,this emulator is perfect)
    But how about GPSP?you’ll update him?

  14. PureXTC says:

    I can’t seem to load a ROM, keeps giving me a memory full error. I don’t have any apps running, with 173MB or RAM, 27.3MB of free space on C:, 6.9GB of free space on E: and 2.0GB of free space on F:

  15. lalala says:

    update GPSP ?

  16. ShinzuiUindo says:

    I heard SE Vivaz doesn’t have multi-touch. Are games playable?

  17. alewillywonka says:

    Hi! There’s anyone that had played on Chrono Trigger? How i can hold 3 buttons on Samsung i8910?? Please help!!!

  18. Lucas says:

    Hi Summeli!
    I have a annoying problem with Qt.
    Everything on the install process seems fine. However all the text parts from the UI are messed. just filled with ‘w’, ‘ç’ or ‘f’ all around. The unique things that I’ve made before was install a Asian font for the Plus J input system. A sort of Japanese input method.
    Maybe the scripts that uses the system font get confused with a different font for the system.
    I don’t know if this is a big problem, but I think this could be solved with a direct reference for a embedded font in the program right?

  19. Rhynazzo says:

    How about fan translations?Why PAL ROMs are don’t working?

  20. ngoanrazor says:

    This is bug in snes, snes cant increase volume.
    To increase the volume of the SNES: we open file c: \
    data \. config \ Unknown Organization.conf
    with xplorer and edit the line snes_volume=4 to snes_volume=10

  21. Vivaz Pro user says:

    Hi i tried installing this

  22. 321 says:

  23. 333 says:

Don’t get me wrong. It works and I really appreciate this. But most of the games that I wish to play doesn’t work? Hope you can give me a tip or two on this.

  46. NDD says:

    Great Emu !!!
    I use this emu on my Nokia 5800 Xpress Music and it works perfectly.
    Only problem I got is the “Chrono Trigger Problem” where the L, R and A keys are supposed to be pushed at the same time.
    I read that this problem is fixed in other versions of the AntSnes (for Symbian^3) by putting all the three on one key.
    However, this is not possible in the Qt version yet, right?
    I just need another save slot 3 sec beyond this problem to go on with the game… what shall I do?
    Will there be antother Qt-version with this trick enabled?
    Please help me with playing my favorite game!

  47. XreijinX says:

    Hey everyone. I was hoping that it would work for my vivaz pro, but i keep getting a memory full error, even tough no other apps or shells are open. Are there any solutions for this? Thanks 😀
