    I've tried using SNES9x for Super Metroid but most of my settings have not been able to get it to play smooth, lots of slow motion and jerking. Is there a better emulator for this game? everything else works good (well except alien vs. predator) with SNES9x

    My system specs which I don't think to be too slow for this game:
    Windows XP SP3
    Asus A8N32-SLI
    AMD X2 4200+ (clocked at 2.64GHz)
    2GB DDR400
    SLI EVGA 7800GT's 256mb
    320GB Seagate 7200.10RPM, 120GB Western Digital 7200RPM
    16x DVD-/+R Recorder
    500W Xclio GoodPower, 250W Thermaltake Power Express

    I know behind the curve a bit, but there hasn't been any games coming out to make me want to upgrade and turning to old ones.

    I've always used ZSNESw for SNES games. Apart from ROM hacks, it works 100% for me.

    Romhacks work perfecly using Snes9x.

    You can get some of the best rom hacks from my signature.

    I tested Super Metroid Redesighn on Snes9x, and Zsnes.

    SNES, Wii Virtual Console... oh, wait... you want to play it on your PC...

    Doesn't make sense, but sure...

    SNES9x works for almost every SNES game

    Its something to do while waiting for downloads and encodes to finish up. I don't own a Wii, also my SNES power cable is damaged so that won't work, so what is left is my PC, DS lite+R4 (texture issues after so long using pocketheaven settings), GameCube+Xeno 2.0 but my dvd burner doesn't work with the media discs, A Dreamcast that is in its original box sitting, and a unmodded PSP Slim waiting for datel tool battery.

    So that leaves the PC being the savior. Anyways I have a usb converter that allows the use of a Xbox, GameCube, and PS2 controller from wal-mart. Using the PS2 controller makes it very similar to the SNES.

    As to my problem, I found I was using SNES9x 1.41-1, found there was a 1.43 and its working good now, thanks guys!
