    Turns out Nintendo's emulator never emulated the SuperFX chip. The RA developer did some sleuthing and found out about it. Even Nintendo knew they couldn't run Star Fox on the VC, yet, hackers did. Sad :P

    I've tried to play it with CATSFC, it is rather slow. Not unplayable, mind you. If you can bear some frame skip it's okay.

    I played it on the original CATSFC and the early versions of the revised versions. I can test out the latest builds to see if there are any improvements.

    I've heard that no PC SNES emulators can finish Mario RPG.
    Can light be shed on this rumor?

    Can someone tell me why it couldn't be finished on other ones? I was told by a friend at one point, but I cannot remember.

    I am looking to play Super Mario RPG on a SNES emulator for my DSTWO supercard. I am also looking to find a original nintendo emulator for my NES files that will work on the same card.

    Total bullshit rumor. I've finished it on ZSNES, SNES9x, and BSNES has like 99.99% compatibility (I think there's one chip that's undumped still).

    CATSFC for SNES. For NES, not sure, never done too much of it.

    For NES there is NesDS.
    Both CATSFC and NesDS can be found on filetrip.net.

    Whoever told you that's full bullshit. :wacko: Bsnes and Snes9x play the game perfectly (Bsnes is the most accurate and Snes9x isn't terribly far behind). Zsnes can run it too, but it locks up a randomly due to buggy emulation and plus it's old as hell ;)

    Simple, it was being played on an outdated emulator, in this case something like Zsnes. The major problem is it was written in ASM (assembly) while using various emulation hacks to make it run as fast as possible on older hardware. As a result, many games ran improperly, froze, ran too fast, etc. In this case, Mario RPG used the SA-1 chip, but Zsnes doesn't emulate it properly due to using so many hacks, so the game will randomly lock up. Bsnes however, emulates most, if not all chips as accurately as possible, so games like Mario RPG will run perfectly. Snes9x isn't quite as accurate as Bsnes, but it's considered the second most accurate one. Your friend likely used Zsnes or something like it.
