    The only problem with Super Game Boy is it didn't have the correct clock speed, games ran what, 1.5% or faster and the audio sounded weird. The Japan only Super Game Boy 2 fixed that.

    I'm a american living in the UK and I for one always hated the US model. It's fugly. WTF was Nintendo of America thinking changing the look? I never like it. I bought the Japanese import console on release day. Cost me a arm and a leg. The Japanese and UK models are much more pleasing to the eye imho. Nostalgia reasons or not.

    To be honest I find both to be 'blocky' products of the 90s.... I think the American version looks more 'sterile' and 'modular'. I always thought it looked 'cleaner' to the competition's often 'black' units of its competitions such as Sega. The purple and periwinkile coloring maybe 'child friendly' but nothing really special.. The four colors on the Japanese Famicom/Euro SNES looks 'retro' to me like something out of the 70s but I can't place where I've seen similar use of colors in a logo. But it neither impresses me or pushes me away from it either. I don't consider one inherently greater than the other. There are elements I like form both designs.

    The n64 for on the other hand had much smoother, sleeker and curvy lines.

    But I played the hell out of my American SNES in the day, it still works really well, and last time I played it still as grey as the day I bought it. No 'plastic lower half yellowing' like found in many UK ones. But its currently boxed away.

    It's not something that can be argued for or against, there is no right or wrong answer... Different people enjoy different appearances of things. Some people like the appearance of the original Famicom over the NES, some people like Super Famicom look over the American SNES. Some people like the opposite... Never figure out why huamns are so different ;).


    I have both so I have the best of both worlds!


    The only emulator that runs Super Gameboy emulation is BSNES as far as I know? It's not perfect either and runs a bit slow.

    Ok, Then I already have it but never got it set up right, untill now. You should get Higan if your still running BSNES. BSNES was merged with other emulator cores and renamed to Higan, so it is the most up to date version of BSNES. Maybe it will run games better then what your using now?
    Higan's homepage is https://byuu.org/

    Why Sonic the Hedgehog 4 (World)? That is basically just a rom hack. Some people might argue that it's not a very good one.
    Besides the SNESC might not run it right, considering that most emulators have some trouble with it as well.

    It's not more compact, it's just separated into two parts, one in the beginning and one in the end of ROM file.
    I tried to reverse-engineer it a little bit using SNES Mini and Wii/Wii U/New 3DS' Virtual Console ROMs, some basic info about SNES ROMs and some information from 3dbrew.org about New 3DS' VC header.
    It looks like they're using the same ROM format, replacing SNES' SPC700 BRR format samples with PCM.

    That's what I came up with:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    So, the SNES Mini's ROM structure looks something like this:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    We should try the usual SMC/SFC ROM dumps and see if the sound is working properly.
    If SNES Mini's emulator (canoe) handles BRR format just fine, there's no point in figuring sample conversion stuff.
    If that's the case, it's very easy to generate working headers (just using zeroes for the PCM stuff) and just load the result with canoe.

    Does anyone know if it will be possible for the SNESC to run roms that are patched with translations, expansions, randomizes, etc?
