    I'm surprised this isn't in the EOF.

    The developers were probably never gonna release it otherwise. Heck, most of the ROMs used in Nintendo's emulators are ROMs you can find online XD

    What kind of moron would buy the SNES mini just for SF2?
    I imagine a grand total of 1% or less of people doing that.

    Yes, as stated from the first poster, it's a nostalgy machine, and let me tell you that : I was chatting with a friend who bought it (I didn't even know it) we're both 40, and man, he told me he thought it was a stupid buy as he thought he wasn't gonna play it ... he just finished secret of mana a week later ^^

    this console has little value to people who didn't own one back then. I can honestly say that the super nintendo is my favourite console no other console will ever surpass it for me. I had to own a snes mini (as I still have to own two sfc and en eur snes ^^')

    made myself some retropies using pi zero for 10bucks a good year ago before big N started the hype.
    including snes controllers and cables it was like 25 bucks for the whole set to emulate everything up to PSX/N64 where the pi zero is too underpowered for emulation.
    but everything older runs like a charm. I couldn't care less for star fox (2).

    Are you sure they didn't give you $25 to take one rasp zero + 2 snes controllers ?

    no, I am quite sure, because I put the parts together and programmed the pi zero. easy as pie.

    I don't mean to be rude on top of sarcastic, but you didn't programmed anything you merely installed something on a sd card ^^

    but hey, I still think pi zero + case + sd + two controllers for $25 is a steal. litterally.

    "didn't programmed", "litterally"?

    I don't want to be rude, but your english sounds like it was as cheap as my retropie.

    and yes, I had to program a lot of it. "it" being custom OC, controller-setups for each emulator. retroarch GUI was customized and scraped manually... and therefore you have to fiddle around with the basic instructions which I would call programming.
    please don't go defining what you think is programming. I couldn't care less.

    The Double Laser and the charged Homing laser were Life saver in the Beta Version.
    Seriously, what where they thinking when they took them away? You can collect the double laser if you are lucky.
    Good Luck defeating the Star Wolf Team on Hard mode without it.

    It is what it is, the fact we have a completed version at all is a miracle.

    True. Those additions make the release bittersweet though.

    I´m sure it is only a matter of time before the Snes mini is hacked open.

    english isn't my first language as you have cleverly noticed ^^ as for programming, I sincerely doubt you had to program anything. changing some confs isn't programming. you can 'call it' programming, and even brag about it : that doesn't mean it is. Come on, anybody can type "emulator raspberry pi distribution" on google, I can feel you're happy about your success in that matter, that doesn't make you a super hero, the real credits goes to the people who "programmed" the os / emulators / frontends you're using. I won't be replying to you anymore : I wish you a good time in your dream where you program raspberries, emulators, whatever, the same dream where you can buy a rasp + box + two controllers for $25.
