    So far, most of them work fine. I beat Soul Blazer without any issues but ActRaiser and Aladdin only run at 75% of speed. I didn't inject these myself, I got them from another website and SMAS+SMW was also one that ran slow, but I replaced it with one that runs at 100% speed. So far, I have SNES, N64, GBA, and DS games. I don't have any NES or TG-16 games.

    I don't believe the Wii U's SNES emulator was built with 100% compatibility in mind. If there isn't an official Virtual Console release available for a SNES game, chances are the VC emulator simply can't handle those games.

    I might just be talking out of my ass here though, can anyone with more knowledge in the topic confirm whether I'm right or not?

    The problem is he is using pal roms aka euro roms as they play slower than ntsc roms due to the old pal tv system. Pal games from back then ran roughly 25% slower than the same ntsc rom. That is why he got Mario all stars running at full speed the second time first time he must of had the euro rom

    That's pathetic if the Wii U's SNES VC emulator can hardly emulate any SNES games but the Wii's SNES VC emulator could? Talk about a giant step, backwards!

    Were they PAL/EUR Injects? If so, they will run slower. Use USA roms and they will work. I injected the games you mentioned and they all work great for me.

    I think they might've been but ActRaiser was US version, I think it was injected into an EU VC ROM of another SNES game that ran at 50Hz, so that might've been the problem. Same goes with Aladdin.

    I've done a lot of research on this as of late and i can tell you Kirby's Dream Land 3 is without a doubt the best base to use for SNES games. Aside from some unofficial romhacks being too large i have yet to find a game that doesn't run full speed, let alone not even work. This of course doesn't count Super-FX games.

    No thanks to Nintendo refusing to obtain the rights from the now-defunct Argonaut Software; no emulator contains the GSU-1 code and while Kirby's Dream Land 3 and Donkey Kong Country are good bases, compatibility is hit and miss. There's a
    Wiki entry here for reference

    Edit: Some of these games will only work via RPX injection

    That list seems a bit dated and people didn't seem to state any guidelines they followed. I didn't have any issues with Illusion of Gaia. I did notice ADSR issues in Clay Fighter though. A big factor in compatibility for me is that i only use rpx injection with the SDK though.

    I haven't done this in a long time, kinda lost interest because of how, well that doesn't matter. King of Dragons has the issue, as does Secret of Evermore, esp. in the new game menu. Part of the other problem is there aren't any recent games to RPX inject. Nintendo hasn't released a new Snes game in a long time. But there's nothing stopping others from updating the Wiki, I just don't really have much motivation to do so anytime soon :unsure:

    There was an app recently made that made RPX hacking easier, not sure where the thread is, have to find it.
