This is not a joke, hoax, or drill. Check it out on the homepage, including a list of new features. And please read the README.Linux before asking questions, I did take a lot of time to write and edit it smile

New Linux-specific features include:

- NEStopia now has an icon for your taskbar (I swiped the one from the Windows version - it's not the flashiest, but it works)
- XML ROM support
- Archive browser comes up automatically if you select a zip or 7zip archive with multiple NES files in it
- Option to select favored console
- More flexible video configuration including OpenGL hardware scaling
- Input mapping in the GUI
- Core logging is now enabled to the terminal you start NEStopia from for easier diagnosis of problems
- Cheat Manager with flexible support and import/export capability (.xml cheat files will interchange with the Windows version just fine)
- Automatic soft-patching added
- Coin inputs added for Vs. system
- Audio filters added for fun

Fair warning: GCC 4.3.x on Fedora 9 and SuSE 10 will issue many warnings for the Linux specific files but the program should still compile and run fine. These will be cleaned up for the next release.

Whoo! Now let's get cracking on a Wii port... okay just kidding, this release is awesome. (Sounds stupid, but I have been running Win32 1.40 in Wine in the mean time. :P)

Thanks man, this is awesome.

Edit: I always get a segfault when trying to configure the controls, on Ubuntu 8.04/i386.

N/M, I see it. Try the release B overlay that's now posted.

Alright. I put up a pr-ebuilt Ubuntu binary (of release B of course) here: http://www.acmlm.org/mike/nestopia-1.40-ubuntu8.04-i386.zip

It's not a DEB package... but I don't really know how you'd make one with the manual setup nestopia requires.

Great smile

I can modify it next time to look in some system-y location if it doesn't find ~/.nestopia/. Anyone familiar with LSB these days to know where that should be? /usr/share/nestopia/ or something?

i read about the release this morning. good things do come to those who wait! thanks R. Belmont!
i jumped ship from kubuntu to opensuse 11 (w/ kde 4.1). it is a million times better.
while waiting for 1.40, i found an rpm package for opensuse of 1.37pre5. hope i can find an rpm package of 1.40 soon! (i feel too lazy to compile it, even though it is easy ;))

Got the new version built and running, but I can't use any of the command keys in the game (i.e. ESC to quit, F7 to save, F8 to load). They all worked in 1.37 for me, but not in 1.40. Any hints?
