ZSNES WIP September 4th Released

• ALL: Evened out ROM scoring quite a bit. A bunch of beta ROMs which didn't load before now should. Special thanks to Cowering for the Reset Vector Popular Opcode Check code. [Nach]

Added an option ClockBox to be able to remove the black box around the clock. [Deathlike]

• W_S: Custom modes now user proper HQ ratio (thanks Clements). [Deathlike]
• W_S: Added ForceRefreshRate as a replacement for Force60Hz. I'm sure someone will fail reading the cfg file for help. [Deathlike]
• W_S: Cleaned up AVI writing a bit. PAL mode now uses Bisqwit's algo too for cleaner code. Please report if PAL has any issues at a particular sound setting. [Nach]

• DOS: DOS users rejoice! All 3 of you... 8-point interpolation and High Quality Low Pass filtering is now enabled via the GUI. Good thing the MMX check was fixed earlier... [Deathlike]
• DOS: Fixed sample rate selection in DOS port to not be able to select 32000 Hz or bigger rates when they are not available under certain circumstances. [Jonas Quinn]
• OSX: Ported ZSNES to OSX [Nach, hector, BRPXQZME]
• SDL: Implemented Keep4_3Ratio to OpenGL. The mode currently only works in Variable ODS mode and is also enabled by default. Variable modes now start with custom res with the caveat that you will probably need to resize the window for R and Keep4_3Ratio to function. Minor asthetic changes were made and a minor res was fixed to be a proper R res. [Deathlike]

• SDL: SDL now using hardware surface. [Nach]
• SDL: Unix build system overhaul. [grinvader]
• SDL: Unix dependancies generated automatically. [Nach]

• WIN: Finally, I can see the icon in the alt+tab menu. Thanks kode54 for pointing the errors out. [Deathlike]
• WIN: Joystick sensitivity is now available for the Windows port. [Deathlike]
• WIN: Added DR Full mode for custom resolutions in the Windows port. I still think the Keep 4:3 Ratio option is superior than this. [Deathlike]

• WIN: Added KitchenSyncPAL for those of you that can't quite use 120Hz but can use 100Hz. [Deathlike, Poobah]
• WIN: Added some resolution checks for custom res in Windows so ZSNES doesn't pull a Houdini. [Deathlike]
• MOV: Fix for movie dumping issues. [Nach]
• MOV: Fixed movie overwrite. [Nach]
• MOV: As per Bisqwit's request increased encoding command sizes. [Nach]
• MOV: -md now takes a parameter and works. [Nach]

• PSR: Can now accept CFLAGS for internal object compiles. [Nach]
• PSR: Generated .h file for PSR files should now be cross platform. [Nach]
• PSR: Less temporary files used. [Nach]
• PSR: New custom stack structure. If checking simplified. Now parsing conditionals check all nests for equality instead of just the last one. [Nach]
• PSR: Updates for sign handling. [Nach, grinvader]
• PSR: Enforced boundaries on recently added PSR variables. Damn those stinking boundaries. [Deathlike]
• GUI: Fixed GUI hotkey labeling of the Force 8-bit option. [Deathlike]
• GUI: Removed the use of variable alignment in the "Set Keys" button. [Deathlike, Jonas Quinn]
• GUI: Rewrote quick load and gui file loading code to be way more awesome than before. Thanks Deathlike for help debugging. [grinvader, Nach]
• GUI: Updated variable for ESC to Game Menu for future compatibility. [Deathlike]
• GUI: Added a custom font system. Thanks to ipher for having most of the idea implemented. Custom fonts read off zfont.txt in a particular manner. I love the nice new font ipher provided for testing. [ipher, Deathlike]
• GUI: Ported SNES internal header loading for GUI to C. Cleaned up code, and overhauled it. Now also available for all ports. [Nach]

• TOL: Passing a parameter to archopt now prints out cpuinfo. [Nach]
• TOL: Now by popular demand, the Macro Unroller - macroll has been released. [Nach]
• TOL: Feel the sting of my macro aware extra EXTSYM detector. Now recursive descent. Way way way faster. Handles nested macros with parameters. Properly identifies EXTSYMs that are used in Macros in which the Macros themselves are not used. [Nach]
• SRC: Fixed a jump to not disable ENV when it shouldn't. [Jonas Quinn]
• SRC: Added JMA=no option. [Nach]
• SRC: Removed duplicare vars of the vcache series. [Deathlike]

• SRC: AC_PREREQ(2.50) for the benefit of Debian's autoconf2.13 package. [SamB]
• SRC: Some new rules, now modifying Makefile.in/configure.in won't require a manual autogen.sh run - make will work it out. Some name changes along the way. [grinvader]
• SRC: Cleanup and minor fixes. [pagefault, Deathlike, grinvader, Jonas Quinn, Nach]
• SRC: Using SDL_GL_SWAP_CONTROL if SDL >= 1.2.10 [Nach]
