Is there some way to ship Stella properties with a ROM?

Recommended Posts



I'm working on a project needs Display_Phosphor = YES. Is there some way to have Stella automagically pick up on that? I tried adding a file named pal.pro next to my pal.bin file, with this contents:

"Cartridge.MD5" "324f559ec4e6da7392371400e9b73111"

"Cartridge.Name" "pal"

"Display.Phosphor" "YES"


That didn't work, unfortunately. Digging through the code I can't find a way to do this. I can ship .bat and .sh files for users, but I'd rather not have to. Am I missing something?


If this functionality is indeed missing then perhaps I'll write a patch for it.

Are you sure? I've tried renaming the file "stella.pro" and "Stella.pro" with no change. If I copy it into ~/.stella it obviously work, but that's kind of an unreasonable thing to expect users to do.
