    I want to play ActRaiser, Super Mario All-Stars, Super Mario RPG, Kirby Super Star, and Kirby's Dream Land 3 on my N3DS. How well do they run via custom SNES VC injections? I'm not talking about emulators like SNES9X, actual custom VC games. I was pretty disappointed when they stopped adding SNES VC games last year and I want to inject the ones that never made it to the 3DS eShop or Wii U eShop, for that matter. Do the SA1 games even run that well or are they very choppy?

    You're better off using snes9x for better performance, if you want it to look like a VC title use a forwarder.

    I tried SNES9X and it wasn't that great. ActRaiser has a weird glitch where I'm at Lv. 0 and I can't enter act 1-1 (Filmore).

    Also RetroArch is a very buggy multi-emulator and it's very hard to use.

    I never have issues with it, it's supposed to run SNES titles on o3ds so n3ds would be way more stable. What about retroarch? I say this because I don't thing Super Mario RPG would work in VC because of its graphics.

    VC will alway run smoother. But with emulators, you have way more options and customizations.

    Most of those games use special snes enhancement chips inside of the cartridge. The only 2 games you listed that do not require these chips are ActRaiser and Mario all stars. Games with special chips cannot be emulated in the snes vc, and can only be run in snes9x, and the chips are hard to emulate, causing the games to lag.

    There are, but only some chips don't work. It begins to get compicated after a while. Like while the super fx chip and the SA1 chip cannot be emulated, while the dsp-1 can be emulated easily.

    Read my above post. While that is useful, some of those chips can easily be emulated. I think the main chips that really cannot be emulated are the superfx and the SA1. All other chips should be fine, but alot might not be.
