AntSnesQt V. 0.6: new graphics

The new AntSnesQt comes with Big D-pad, which is optimized for resistive touchscreen.

I had some help for the new graphics for this release:

  • Thanks for Saiyaku for the new D-pad graphics and UI graphics.
  • Thaks for Jasper Terveer for the small d-pad and button graphics.

What’s new

  • Improved compatibility? (the code is much better aligned with drPocketSnes)
  • Big D-PAD
  • The new AntSnes has more realistic snes style graphics. See it yourself

The Big D-Pad

New buttons

Know issues:

  • Audio isn’t implemented
  • Qt with SwEvent works only on Nokia phones, other S60 users should use the AntSnes 0.72.
  • PAL ROMs do not work


1. First Install Qt 4.6.2 binaries into your phone: Download Qt installation package
2.  Download the AntSnesQt.sis
3. AntSnesQt requires the SWEvent capability. The SwEvent is required for key mapping: Now you can map call/end call etc. buttons for the AntSnes usage. Therefore a new step is required to install the SW.

Go to SymbianSigned and sign the AntSnesQt sis for your own phone IMEI
using free Open Signed Online option this operation should be free of any charge.
Read carefully the instructions on the SymbianSigned site.
You must give them

  • Your Phone IMEI  (you can obtain it digiting *#06# on your phone)
  • Your EMAIL Address
  • AntSnesQt SIS Package

And then the symbiansigned should email you the signed AntSnesQt for your phone. This package will be installable ONLY on your phone. This procedure works for all Symbian S60V5 Phones.

The alternative method is to hack your phone! You can find pretty good instructions from MameXM download site. (scroll to the bottom of page: Signing & Installing).

    i had read this guide. But i understand. I am newbie in programmer ( i am student in vietnam). Please, can you guide step 1, step 2…
    Thank you for reply :)

    • Summeli says:

      step 1. setup the mingw build environment
      step 2. go into the gms directory and build the engine. You probably have to modify the makefiles a bit for your own build, so read the mingw post carefully.
      step 3. read a Qt-tutorial, so you can use the qmake.
      step 4. use qmake to build the qt-project.

    Đã test trên 5800:
    – Chạy được một số roms và một số roms không chạy được.
    – Màn hình hơi giật.
    – Không hiểu sao bản nó không chịu chạy trên bản Qt 4.7 của mình. Mình đã phải cài lại bản 4.6.2 và hoạt động được.
    * Cảm ơn Summeli.

      Test on 5800:
      – Chạy được một số roms và một số roms không chạy được. – Running some roms and some roms will not run.
      – Màn hình hơi giật. – Display a little shock.
      – Không hiểu sao bản nó không chịu chạy trên bản Qt 4.7 của mình. – I wonder why it refuses to run on the Qt 4.7 version of themselves. Mình đã phải cài lại bản 4.6.2 và hoạt động được. I had to reinstall the version 4.6.2 and work.
      * Cảm ơn * Thanks

    summeli, i noticed that everytime antsnes qt crashed after trying to load roms, it always returns to the private folder with numbers on the folder name. is it possible if the config file got stuck somehow and unable to keep the rom folder adress? if so, can the config file be edited? where can i find it on my 5800 xm?

    • dr490n says:

      thanks for the help, but the problem i faced is not with certification. I’ve already installed the qt, and antsnes qt perfectly, however everytime i try to load any rom (smc) , the app just closedcitself.. I’ve already tried every version of qt from 4.62 to 4.73 and still no luck in loading rom. crashed everytime. I am using 5800xm fw 5. Any suggestion? it seems several of our friends here have exactly the same problem..

      • dr490n says:

        sorry, i mean qt version 4.62 to 4.71
        i noticed you said 4.6, are you using 4.60 and it works?

      • lucian says:

        this happens to me too ok you have to do this:delete the Qt,delete the AntSnesQt,delete all roms and re-configure your cell on original cofiguration in the configuration menu,after this download and install all again.

        • dr490n says:

          by configuring to original config do you mean that I must reset my phone to factory settings?
          ok, what must i delete to erase all qt? there are quite a few apps that i think is related to qt, please give me a detailed list of what you did to make this work… btw, is your phone hacked?

          • Lucian says:

            No my phone not is hacked,I mean you to do this because this because works on my phone.Here what I did:I search the Qt 4.6.3 or highter I don’t find it so I download the Qt 4.6.0 on the sd,it works!after this I download the AntSnesQt I install it on XSTEVEDORE,result:it works.I download roms on format (U).smc/(U) [!].smc/or symple smc.I played a lot,but the AntSnesQt stops the keys aren’t works,so I delete the Qt,theAntSnesQt and all roms,I reconfigured the phone digiting *#7370#(this will erase all of your data)after I download and install all.I do this direct on my phone not on pc,if you don’t have results post here what how you have done the installation,and I will try to help you.

      • lucian says:

        I recomend to you search roms on format (U) [!] smc or (U) smc you can search it in the or I’m happy to help you.

        • dr490n says:

          oh, so it works the first time you installed it..
          that’s not the case with mine, antsnes qt refused to load any rom from the first time i installed it, i already use the (u)! roms and installed qt 4.60, even the reset too, but it still won’t load any rom..
          thanks for trying to help, though.. i really appreciate it..

          • lucian says:

            I think the problem is your ram memory is full,you got a lot of apps,right?If you don’t know how to view the ram memory download the NetQin mobile anti-virus you can find it at 4shared,it’s a great app!Ok in the NetQin you can see your ram memory,if your ram memory is full delete some apps,maybe others emus if you have,because of this I said to you use the master reset.Try it maybe this works.If you have results make your post.

          • dr490n says:

            ok, will try it ASAP, btw, just how much ram you got in your cell after installing everything needed? i got about 25 mb free , GPSP and gnuboy works in this condition, but not antsnesqt

  12. publicorderkeeper says:

    Does anybody know how to make the super mario RPG to start on this emulator?

  13. lucian says:

    dr49n,my memory rom is 121m,with antsneqt and the others emus of summeli install I have 83m left.

  14. Chandler.Liu says:

    Hi Summeli,
    I encountered the same issue [Load ROM and the program crash]

    I add in some debug code and recompile it: it crashes when

    emit( LoadROM( rom,antsettings ));

    Where is the program go when emit LoadROM?

  15. Chandler.Liu says:

    Hi Summeli,
    I try and debug this stuff on my 5233 ( Load rom and crash problem ), I see it crash when
    void S9xReset (void)
    #ifdef SUPER_FX
    if (Settings.SuperFX)
    S9xResetSuperFX ();

    ZeroMemory (Memory.FillRAM, 0x8000); (crash here)

    I do not know why, may be 0x8000 is too large, and I checked the Memory.FillRAM is not null.

  16. JohnyK says:

    I have the same problem. Antsnes used um load all my roms just fine before. But recently it crashes most of those same roms no load. In fact, the only one that doesn’t crash is the one i’ve been playing until now… Can it be related? Is it possible that the emulator has somewhat “fixed” its settings to just play that one rom?

  17. hayyan says:

    no suppprt for v64 roms ? Any idea ?

  18. dave says:

  19. thesinz says:
