Best NES and SNES emulators?
Posted 10 February 2010 - 06:46 PM
If only for laughs, I guess I may as well say what I've been using thus far (I guess I'd be comfier with ones similar to these, but hey, I'm willing to learn)...
FCE Ultra 0.98.12
...Yes, I realise they're like five years old. :3
To be honest, I'd been noticing problems with my ZSNES from the beginning, from roms freezing to some just not working no matter where I downloaded them from (Actraiser 2 haunts me to this day).

For SNES, either Snes9x, bsnes or ZSNES 1.51/1.42. bsnes doesn't support omst of the special SNES chips though, but it emulates "basic" SNES games far more accurately than ZSNES. This is reflected on the system requirements, though.
As a personal plug of sorts, you can find a couple of custom font packs for ZSNES on my site. ZSNES 1.51 only, mind you.

Cheers for the NEStopia rec, shall check it out. Something that always annoyed me about FCE was the inability to frameskip, so here's hoping...!

Please do not speak that name in my presence. There should be an interim release of some sort for ZSNES in the near future, because it's been so long since 1.51 was released.
...Can ZSNES 1.51 run Actraiser 2? :3

Well, I guess I'll check out Z***S 1.51!

Actraiser 2, to be exact.
Or do you mean Actraiser...?

Depends on what you play with it and what version you use. 1.51 has a broken SA-1 emulation making all SA-1 chip games either not work or glitch in unexpected ways. SA-1 wasn't as broken in 1.42. The sound emulation in 1.51 is also terribly inaccurate, but has since been "fixed" by introducing a completely rewritten sound core.
I like Zsnes. Never had a single problem with it.
