Ilari has updated his SNES / Gameboy / Gameboy Color emulator with new features, and introducing: *First proper Super Gameboy emulator with rerecording! *Lua 5.3 support and the most advanced and feature complete Lua functionality of any emulator! Wiki: Lsnes Files: rr2-β23 with SGB Core - Windows Installer 15.6 MB (Recommended) rr2-β23 - Windows Binaries and Source Code 10.4 MB (Can be used to build for Linux, Windows, OS X, and possibly other UNIX compatible OSs) SGB core.so Builder (from source) 382 bytes (Will need some minor modification to build core.dll instead) A PDF containing the Lua functions reference is part of the download package. Note, if you're not using the Windows installer version with its launch shortcuts, you'll need to manually load the Super Gameboy core.dll to make use of it. For those of you not familiar with lsnes, it emulates the following platforms: *Super Nintendo *Gameboy *Super Gameboy *Gameboy Color *Gameboy Color in Gameboy Advance mode To make use of proper Super Gameboy emulation, use: File -> Load -> Multifile ROM -> Super Gameboy [bsnes v085 / Gambatte r537]. You will then need to select the Super Gameboy BIOS ROM image and the DMG (Gameboy) ROM image.

Does it mean running a GB game with bsnes in an older version of lsnes is not proper enough? BTW, Pokemon Green still cannot be played properly even in this version. Red just keeps walking upward.

Don't take things out of context. It's real SGB emulation with rerecording that works.

Please try clarifying what you mean. Some games unfortunately don't load, Pokémon Yellow among them. But for the games that do work, you should have a better experience TASing than before.

In Pokemon Green, the player character automatically walks upward and cannot be stopped. The game can't be processed. Is this the right place to report bugs?

I reported this to Ilari, he said he'll look into it. As for right place to report bugs, since this is the SNES section, we should probably report generic lsnes or SNES related bugs here. Of course if you mean Pokemon Green in SGB mode, that becomes a gray area if it should be in this thread, or the parallel thread in the Gameboy Emulators section. If you meant in regular DMG mode, then you should report Pokemon bugs in the other thread.

There's a "Emulate saving each frame" option in the new movie window, what does it do?

I would assume you can rewind to any frame, if it does that, but it doesn't.

With this new version available, what would you say is the more superior version of emulating SNES games? Bizhawk or this?

The vast majority of the time, they should be equal. On the other hand, if you look into which you can make a more sophisticated TAS, like the crazy stuff Masterjun is doing, or if you want to write extremely powerful LUA scripts, then you're better off with lsnes.

i would like to request/suggest a feature,memory search for intervals/ranges of values instead of just one single value,what is the correct place to suggest?
I plan on TASing whatever simple games you don't want to. TAS i'm interested: megaman series: mmbn1 100%, bn3456, mmx3 any% psx glitched, pokemon series : colosseum and XD, emerald 7symbols, maximum carnage, mmx command mission mortal kombat series: UMK3, MKT, MKA, MKD and MKDA fighting games with speed goals in general

Ilari does not check TASvideos anymore. You should make those requests at Freenode, #lsnes channel, to have a chance. For now, I think BizHawk's memory search is much better, though some advanced stuff can be done with Lua in lsnes.
