    I hear BlargSNES is best. However, if you're in 10.7 or below why not get CFW and play injects?

    As far as I know BlargSNES doesn't run Yoshi's Island at all. The snes9x port does play Yoshi's Island, albeit with a few issues.

    Is there a guide on how to inject games? There's a couple games I've requested in threads before but never got an answer.

    Since its the n3DS we are talking about, i would say Pocket SNES does run Yoshi's Island pretty well, the sound not that great though. Either that or CATSFC for games that does not run on the official VC Emulator

    Use PocketSNES (by the way, why the heck did they remove it from nightly releases?) Download it from the latest stable release

    Couldn't you just inject the GBA version of Yoshi's Island?

    Umm isn't yoshi's island on gba on eshop? it can be gotten with ciangel or something. As for kirby dreamland 3 wait for nintendo to release it on eshop, Is one of those rare advance chips that hasn't been done for proper injection i believe.:unsure:

    CATSFC is the most accurate, but also the slowest as a result.

    I've had better luck with accuracy on PocketSNES than BlargSNES overall, so try that first.

    Do you like save states? pocket snes
    Do you like having just one save state? vc injection
    Do you only have hb access? blargsnes

    edit: you will have to test compatibility with each game

    You should be able to find any game on "that" ISO site.

    It"s only for people that are Ambassadors (bought the 3DS before the price drop in 2011 and updated or enter the eShop before August 11, 2011; you can transfer this games without problem to other models). I bought my principal American Original 3DS before the time so I have the games in it and I think the screen is a little better (little better colorsspecially withes) than later Original 3DS.

    You can download it on CIAngel/freeShop without being an ambassador (or at least I know you can download Minish Cap which was an ambassador game).

    You can, but it isn"t for sale in the eShop, also there are some people that can"t install CFW or don"t use CFW.

    VC injection can't handle most of the SMW hacks.
    But emulators can.

    You really do need multiple options for Snes emulation as every solution has its flaws.

    To maybe reiterate one of two points already made, Catsfc has the best overall compatibility of any Snes emulator but despite its accuracy slight glitching of the odd static screen is present. Pocketsnes can run a few chip games that Catsfc cant but can suffer from dodgy sound. Catsfc Plus / + simply doesn't run full speed, so I wouldn't bother with that at all. VC injects are great but compatibility is limited. Blargsnes is the only real option for O3DS users (Snes 9X 4 O3DS pending) but compatibility is particularly limited - though unlike VC injection it can handle many SMW romhacks fine.
