    BS-X Satellaview
    Reviving with Emulation
    [​IMG]

    The BS-X Satellaview was an add-on released in Japan which allowed users to download exclusive games, magazines, and other extras directly to their SNES. The most well known game released on the service was BS_Zelda_no_Densetsu, a game that featured full voice acting. A project has emerged which aims to recreate the service using emulation and computer servers. For more information check the project post link below.

    While this would make me happier, I'll quote Byuu here in his page on preservation of the SNES.

    I'm sure Nintendo have all of them (including actor voice recording) safe in their archive.

    But they'll certainly never release them (and probably trash them one day or another).

    BS Zelda is playable since a long time, the project that's been talked on the news is a project about making Satellaview back online again via emulation.

    Oh god I LOVED sega channel. It was so awesome.

    Anyway...my question is...I have a lot of BS-X roms, but when I load them up in snes9x, it says "SRAM not found". So is that SNES9x not reading the SRAM data, or is that held in a separate file?
