    What is the current best option for SNES netplay? I'm currently using ZSNES 1.36 and have had no issues playing Mario Kart with someone else from the US - I'm from the UK. Other than the rare stutter of gameplay, I had no issue, I was hosting and was using TCP. The other player also had barely any issue with the game either ^^

    I use 1.36 because I heard ZSNES has the most stable netplay at that version, and 1.42 has desync issues. But are there more newer ways to do netplay? I know Snes9x has netplay over TCP, but it's not intended for online usage due to being a BETA feature. Also RetroArch has netplay, has anyone tested it?

    (Of course if anyone's up for Mario Kart on ZSNES 1.36, message me. I can play between 4pm-8pm GMT usually)

    Thanks!

    What advantages does it have? Other than supporting better emulators like Snes9x.

    @Touko White apparently, It's Z-Net now and still fonctionnal. Sadly, nobody knows about this and there's about 4 users online right now.
