Can an NES Classic swap into a SNES Classic because of the same internals, or is that not possible?

Don't know where my original kernel is or if I backed it up at all. It'd be super helpful if someone who actually correctly did that put it on a shared site or something. Someone is going to screw that up. Potentially even me. Heh. Hehehe. :/

So what happens if I have more than 31 games and I donít resize my icons at the bottom?

So they just go off the sides of the screen and look sloppy?

There are multiple versions of the kernel for every region. :/

Wait, why are there multiple versions per region? I can understand multiple versions because of region, but I'm surprised there are multiple in the same region.

Looks like new version

It says decorative frames are not possible but i know RetroArch has an overlay feature which is the same thing, so maybe that could be utilised?

OmegaDL50 wanted Secret of Mana 2 box art in the style of the cover of the first game, so I whipped something up. I hope I got everything right, if not I'll update it as necessary.

Also, it's pretty much impossible to find a full version of the artwork I used in a nice quality, which is a shame because it's great. Artist is the late Hirō Isono, just like with that iconic Secret of Mana art of course. It's from the manual.

So I stitched one together myself in photoshop. And man, I have never done anything like that before so I'm sure I screwed up in places. Still, here it is:

It's not perfect, but I should probably share this somewhere more visible sometime. Like, on a Tumblr or something. Because it's a bummer to me how hard it was to find this thing. That said I still had to cut off parts, like artist's signature. That felt bad. Hopefully SE will remake the game and make the piece more accessible in the future.

Best full scan of the manual I could find for reference:

I also used a scan of the CD cover, and a closeup I found of the characters. I don't know what the proper colours are, so I based things on the closeup since that one is of the nicest quality. I think I did a decent job all things considered. Took a bit longer than I had planned though!

Generally rom hacks are applied no differently than fan translations.

These usually consist of an IPS file which is applied to the Rom itself via an IPS patcher program.

Word of advice for those to unfamiliar with the process. You need to first patch the rom with the romhack or translation you want to use in question before you copy it over to your SNES Classic via Hakchi.

I added about 80ish games for a total of 100 with the originals. Everything seems to work fine but whenever I try to shut down I get a C8 error. I have to toggle the power again to get it to shut down normally. Anyone know whats up with this?

Only thing I can think of is I'm not using folders. Would that cause the C8s on shutdown?

Whenever I want to just go back to the original version for whatever reason, I just flash the original kernel back onto the system correct?

Use the Uninstall function in the Kernels menu. It'll make it as if you just got it.

Two possibly dumb questions:

I've been playing it and have saves + restore points I'd like to keep, do I keep them?

The backup kernel is just the emulator and front end, not the build in roms? If so..where do they go.
