    I know how to get them working, however,

    is it possible to get the 4 player games working? for example, bomberman 2 on NES. i tried, couldnt get 4 player working, probably didnt have the latest version of the emulators.

    Im interested in 4 player co-op games on both NES and SNES.

    any information will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.


    P.S im also interested on knowing how to save using the snes emulator:) when i first tried, i couldnt get it working with just frontSD.

    I know the NES (FCEU Ultra Wii edition)can take 4 controllers what I know of.

    Check up on Snes9xGX, it suppose to be really good.

    thanks, i have a feeling i probably was using an older version that didnt support 4 controllers, or maybe i did it wrong:).

    is snes9xgX 002 the latest? i see a release date of july 21 i think...

    I didn't think neither NES or SNES supported up to Four Players.

    Yes that's the latest officially supported release, based on the snex9x 1.50 kernel
    there's also 3.1 by LopSt (don't pay attention to the version number) which is a bit older and has about the same functionality. But it's based on Snes9x 1.43 and it is not officially supported since the source code hasn't been released.

    I'm not sure about the NES, but the SNES had Hudson's Super MultiTap adapter which turned port #2 into four additional slots (though there were very few games that allowed a Player 5) which was compatible with Hudson's own Bomberman games, and a scant few others.

    I've never had it myself, but I knew about it back then.

    yah, the reason i want the multiplayer is just for the bomberman games, my cousin had the original one for nes (i believe made by hudson also..) for the bomberman games.

    and now that i got my sd card back, i can begin trying to the emulators out instead of asking questions:)

    thanks for all the replies and information everyone:) much appreciated.

    gamecube's version for fceugc (NES Four Score ), sness9x (Super Multitap ) & genesisplus (4 Way Play, team Player & J-Cart) had support for up to 4 players

    if the coders who quickly added wiimote&co support did a a good job, this should work also on wii versions

    I know the current wii version of genesisplus also have support for up to 8players in some games (didn't try it, you need a bunch of controllers lol)
