    BSNES has always reached for a near perfect experience, thanks to its low-level approach to the entire aspect of emulation. The project has also aimed to support all of the co-processor games. As of today, the final co-processor is now supported (ST018). BSNES is now the only SNES EMU to support a 100% compatibility of all known officially released games, and it accomplishes this without any hacks!

    The source news thread has a reply which links back to the ROM files, and thus we can not link to it here. Google is your friend!



    Thanks to prowler for the USN!​

    It'd be pretty cool - If BSNES was open source. I think it is, but I wouldn't have the brains to port such a program.

    It is open source.
    A simple glance at the website in the OP tells that.

    Yeah. Noticed that after I went and checked out the download page.

    Wii's not nearly powerful enough.

    For the performance core, maybe, but accuracy, impossible.

    The same low-level style of emulation that makes genuinely perfect accuracy possible also bumps up the requirements pretty significantly. No chance it'll ever get ported to Wii, and very slim chance it'll get ported to PS3 if someone wants to go to the effort of threading the whole thing.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    That's why I am so loving this emulator. :)

    They're fairly accurate, but nowhere near the level of Bsnes. Probably on par with Snes9x 1.53 I'd say.

    N64 emulation is a bit of a pain, I've heard. Nothing's quite the same when it comes to emulating its individual games.

    Absolutely great news about BSNES hitting 100% compatibility, hoorahs are in order!
    As for BSNES being available on any system like a Wii, forget it man that takes a lot more power, since most other emulators are High-level emulators, whilst BSNES is Low-level meaning it emulates the system hardware itself and not the expected responses.

    I just think it's downright pathetic seeing so many "enlightening" comments about Bsnes on EmuCR. It isn't THAT bad, I can run it just fine on my older Core 2 Duo E8400...I fail to see why so many jerks are complaining about it.

    'Cause people are used to being able to pirate SNES games on a 400mhz machine.

    So I was reading the release thread for this on the BSNES forum and someone posted a link to some DSP ROMs for this version of BSNES. Whats this for? Do these co-processors need dumping seperately to the game ROMs (more like a MAME ROM?)?

    Yep. They're required to run games with special chips, now that the SuperFX, SA-1, S-DD1, Cx4, etc use low-level emulation. I thought distributing those files was "illegal", but what do I care? I don't agree with having to get them for those ROMs....whatever.

    I just got a new PC, Intel Core i7 2670 @ 2.2GHz, and a GeForce GTX 560. Loaded up Donkey Kong.

    Stutters like no tomorrow.

    And that's why I'm not a fan.

    I'm on a Core-architecture machine and BSNES runs normal games fine for me... on the compatibility profile, not the accuracy one.

    Never seen that kinda' stuff. Any time people would rag on an emulator author for his ideals is a time when shitheads roam free and I'd rather stay out of that.

    I was mainly referring to how you could run ZSNES on older machines. I used the DOS version on my 98SE machine with a 400mhz processor for the longest time.
