How do you start ZSNES from Advanced Launcher? Are you using exactly this following arguments?
Or do you have modified it to use a resolution that is supported by your graphical card and your screen?
; -- Video --
; Video Mode [0..22]
; 0 = 256x224 R WIN 1 = 256x224 R FULL
; 2 = 512x448 DR WIN 3 = 512x448 DR FULL
; 4 = 640x480 DR FULL
; 5 = 256x224 O R WIN 6 = 512x448 ODR WIN
; 7 = 640x480 ODS FULL 8 = 640x480 ODS WIN
; 9 = 640x560 ODR WIN 10 = 768x672 ODR WIN
; 11 = 800x600 ODS FULL 12 = 800x600 ODS WIN
; 13 = 896x784 ODR WIN 14 = 1024x768 ODS FULL
; 15 = 1024x768 ODS WIN 16 = 1024x896 ODR WIN
; 17 = 1280x960 ODS FULL 18 = 1280x1024 ODS FULL
; 19 = 1600x1200 ODS FULL 20 = VARIABLE ODR WIN
; 21 = VARIABLE ODS WIN 22 = CUSTOM OD FULL
; You need to select the custom video mode and modify CustomResX/Y to properly
; use custom res support.
; Last windowed & fullscreen modes (used when alt-tabbing)
; Custom Resolution X and Y for Custom Video Modes [256x224..2048x1536]
Custom video mode of ZSNES is defined by the -v 22
argument. If you are using it the screen resolution values, defined by CustomResX and CustomResY, must be compatible with your system. Also, if you want to use, for example the 1280x1024 fullscreen mode, the argument must be -v 18
. You can also force the custom mode by modifying the cvidmode
value (to 22).
Thanks for your reply.
I have tried starting zsnes in OpenGL resolutions using Advanced Launcher (With the exact arguments), from within the GUI of xbmcubuntu and I have also launched it remotely using SSH -X. All of these methods give me a black screen when I use any mode which has the OpenGL feature.
I normally use 1080p when watching movies and this is also the resolution which xbmx is running at, so I don't think that resolution is the problem. I think it is more likely the OpenGL.
When running Zsnes from the GUI, the [b]-v 22[b] argument wont matter right?
