    Okay so I recently discovered some emulators to work with my EmuNAND 10.6 and they were RetroArch and they said that .cia emulators run fast. So I get Snes9x and start up Super Mario World and god it doesn't run for shit. I remember using BlargSNES and it ran Super Mario World at full speed (9.9 SysNAND .3dsx version). Is there something I am doing wrong with this? Thanks!

    Try CatSFC or PocketSNES from retroarch.

    Sounds like your using an O3DS system, the N3DS runs roms decent

    And now with the official Snes emulator yu can find injected games on chaos and ISO sites

    Why would BlargSNES run 2x faster than a .cia. What you said doesn't make sense and is only for some emulators.

    Whats even more dissapointing is that my PSX emulation runs faster than my NES and SNES emulation. (At Least Genesis works...)

    Because BlargSNES is wrote directly for the system and uses speed hacks.

    Where RetroARK is porting the cores to run on the system but not optimized, using the N3DS they run better as they have faster processors and more cores to use

    A lot of the info on the 1st post of the RetroArch thread is actually pretty misleading and it's needed some cleanup for some time. Your best bet is pocketSNES as that's the fastest. Snes9x is actually the slowest emulator of the bunch. As for why PSX runs faster. PCSX-rearmed is a feat of great ARM-oriented code and dynamic recompilation if you install it as a cia. As others have stated Retroarch is really just a platform agnostic way to get emus and other programs running on a whole bunch of machines easily so optimization isn't its strong suit.

    Wouldn't happen to know any BlargSNES .cia? PocketSNES is better, but not good enough. I will probs go back to using Blarg if things go like this...

    Between insane and insecure
    Part of the problem with emulation with the 3DS is still limited knowledge of the system. Compared to the PSP, where we have complete control over the hardware and knowledge, the 3DS is still pretty limited.

    PocketSNES
    GenesisPlus
    PCSX
    FCEUMM

    Can someone please tell me the better emulators to scrap these with?

    Replace FCEUMM with Quicknes. GenesisPlusGX only runs sega master system and sega gamegear at fullspeed. If you don't care for those 2 systems then use Picodrive for sega genesis. Replace PocketSNES with BlargSnes 1.2b. Can't speak on PCSX. This is all assuming you are on a O3DS and not a N3DS.

    BlargSNES seems to be on black screen on startup. It only started up once on a normal screen...
