    Now that I have the lovely menuhax back on my NEW3DS
    I'm interested in trying emulation again. it's been awhile. I know about retroarch but I am not a big fan of it.
    Though if it needs to be used for filters etc. I will use it.

    Now I just want to know if these are possible AT FULL SPEED or near it.

    GBA
    NES
    SNES (Yes even chip games like super metroid/super mario rpg.)
    GBC/GB
    Possibly MAME?
    Sega genesis/32
    Maybe capcom arcade system


    If so can you give me the name of the emulators and proper settings to get them full speed or near it?

    Thank you a bunch guys!

    Retroarch is the best way to go! :)

    Yes I know it's probably the best bet. But I know how nightlies are frequently stuff gets broken. And doesn't work. What's the most stable nightly iyo sliver?
    Thanx for your contribution. I just tried to run ff6 on this. it ran kinna' choppy music wise.

    Retroarch has you covered. Just install the cores for the systems you want.
    I have been using the December 9 nightlies for a long time, if that's worth something.

    Sounds good. any particular settings you use for the cores I listed above?
    And do they play properly ? ESPECIALLY SNES/ NES./GB/GBC

    Slasher I know and I appreciate all your work on that thread. But I want to make sure I get a nice stable nightly.
    I hear of some new way to play the sound?
    dynarec or?

    Is this better overall or?

    They play full speed most of the time for me. PocketSNES is the only SNES emu with Super FX chip emulation that I'm aware of.

    As for the settings, the only thing I have changed is the aspect ratio to 1:1 and enabled the circle pad to emulate a D-Pad.

    From what I'm aware of, the last good build with not many issues is the dec 9th one and dynarec for now is not fully implemented last time I checked, you can use it though

    I couldn't get SNES Yoshi's Island running perfectly in any of retroarc's cores. One of them was pretty close but maaaaan.

    I've been happy with the others though. Genesis, GBC, NES, all great.

    The screen rotation feature is weird for retroarc in that it mirrors the screen, but I've actually found it really fun to play old familiar platformers right-to-left after swapping the dpad left/right.

    If you want to play Yoshi's Island, I would recommend running the GBA version with gpSP.

    Oh yeah, for sure. There are even rom hacks for it that restore the old colors and sounds if you can't stand yoshi making constipation noises while flutterjumping. I'm all about that HHHRRRRRRRRNNNNN though.

    My benchmarks for SNES emulation are always Mario World, Yoshi's Island, and the two proper Kirby games. Most everything an handle Mario World, and almost nothing outside of computers can handle Kirby's Dreamland 3.

    Yeah exactly. Just avoid the special chip games and it's a good time for SNES emulation.

    At least on CatSFC, SM plays fullspeed. It doesn't use a Super FX chip after all.
