This guide will outline the steps required for creating a demo that works with the SNES Classic Mini's "Classic Demo" mode.
Instructions[edit | edit source]
Updating game settings[edit | edit source]
- Connect your SNES Classic Mini to your computer via USB.
- Open hakchi and select the game for which you wish to record the demo footage.
- Click in the "Command line" field and locate
600to a higher number, such as
- Ensure the game is ticked and click "Synchronize selected games..."
Recording a demo[edit | edit source]
- Connect your SNES Classic Mini to a TV/monitor and start the relevant game from the main menu.
- Once you have reached the desired point where you want your demo to end, press the Reset button to return to the main menu.
- Press down on the D-pad and then the Y button to save your gameplay as a suspend point.
- Once saved, turn off the SNES Classic Mini and plug it back into your computer.
Converting the suspend point[edit | edit source]
- Open hakchi and navigate to "Tools > Save-State Manager".
- Select the relevant save state (usually marked with a number in the "Save slots" column) and click "Export selected" to save it to your computer.
- Locate the file (it should have a
.clvsfile extension) and use a tool like 7-Zip or WinRAR to open the file and navigate to the following folder contained within:
Chrono Trigger.clvs/Chrono Trigger/CLV-U-ZJSQU/suspendpoint*(where "CLV-U-ZJSQU" is the game's ID and * is the suspend point number)
- Drag the "rollback" folder to your Desktop and then rename it to "autoplay".
- Open the "autoplay" folder and rename the
.inputsfiles as follows:
sram.hashfile can be deleted.
Adding the demo to the SNES Mini[edit | edit source]
- Return to hakchi, right-click the relevant game, and select "Show in Windows Explorer" or press F4.
- Move the "autoplay" folder into this folder.
- Click "Synchronize selected games..."
Testing the demo[edit | edit source]
Connect your SNES Classic Mini to a TV/monitor and wait for Mario to appear. Once he reaches the relevant game, the demo should start as expected.
Additional notes[edit | edit source]
- Some guides on this process state that the "autoplay" folder should be saved to the "games_snes" folder. The game's default hakchi location is fine.
