    A download link as news source, really? Why not just link to the actual post?

    Hey, hey, before you try to cry salty tears about every source, maybe actually read the site and see that that page you linked like a real genius doesn't actually have the v2 link directly on it, meaning anyone who actually wants it would have to dig around to find it? Because it's in beta. Anyone who cares to check the emulator out would want the source link in the OP. gg tho, you "tried"

    It is your PC, bsnes needs more cpu than snes9x and bsnes with upscaling needs more cpu than bsnes.

    Oh, excuse me. I figured a Nvidia GPU 1050 TI, Intel I7 seventh generation processor and 16GB DDR5 RAM was plenty for a snes emulator. :blink:

    This is impressive, but not worth the struggle, also I'm reminded why pilotwings is so hard. :ninja:

    You're excused, I've not tried it on my laptop yet (i7-8750h/nvidia 1060/32gb ddr4) but I'm not hopeful.

    byuu says Friendly reminder that this mode has to render 81 times as many pixels with lots of divisions for all five million pixels per frame at 60fps. Hope you have a Threadripper.

    bsnes is a high accuracy emulator. It requires quite a bit.

    I don't quite understand what "High Accuracy" means. :blink:

    Maybe in a new version of SNES9x.

    Most emulators tend to make a lot of shortcuts when emulating a platform to reduce the overall requirements to run it, because going for absolute accuracy is extremely process intensive. Here's a good read if you have the time.

    That's what I meant but who knows if any special features from bsnes are needed for those HD things to work.

    Bad examples? I can barely tell the difference. No matter how much you scale up a pixelated or sprite based game, it still going to be pixelated.

    Getting as close to hardware level as physically possible if not entirely.

    Try setting the setting and closing the emulator. Then re-open the emulator and game. It fixed the issue.

    Boo hoo, be salty somewhere else, at least provide a valid critique without being smarmy.

    Not gonna like, not worth frying my CPU to run mode 7 games in HD on a cycle-accurate emulator. I'll stick to my Super NT, thank you, which is still accurate, but doesn't need a Core i9 9900K and 32 GB RAM to run full speed.

    I think it’s Dragon Quest 3.

    Can we not over exaggerate? The SuperNT is ideal if you want a premium hardware solution. The price point is a bit much, though. Bsnes is really only if you're a stickler for these benefits. Snes9x works fine enough for the average user and is even srl ready.
