I'vew been using ZSNES for several years now. Last year I made the switch
to Linux, RedHat 9, then Fedora Core 1. But anyway....
I've recently upgraded to Fedora Core 2 and have been having troulbe with
zsnes ever since. By trouble, I mean, my P4 2GHz machine is having a
horrible time running at full frame-rate even with sound quality at 22k, so
on and so forth. I can't think of any reason as to why this should be a
problem- other applications seem to be doing just fine and I have more than
enough free resources.
The only thing I can think of is the fact that I'm running in 32-bit color
mode and ZSNES reports
You are running in 32 bpp, but ZSNES is forcing 16 bpp.
You may experience poor performance and/or crashing.
However, this has never been a problem in the past. I beleive I did try
switching to 16-bit color mode, which made Gnome freak out, but it didn't
seem to help ZSNES any.
If anyone has any suggestions or thoughts I'd be really interesting in
hearing them. It may just be something defunct with FC2- I'll probably
upgrade to FC3 when it is fully released, maybe that'll fix it.
