Which emulator is the better choice for an R4 card?
I don't even know what a Snezzi DS is. SNEmulDS is as good as DS SNES emulation gets. Don't expect much. If you want decent SNES emulation, get a PSP. If you want good SNES emulation, get a decent Android tablet or phone, or just use your computer.
SnezziDS requires a slot-2 device with GBA compatibility in order to operate. This makes it a non-option for your slot-1 R4.
This, very much this, Snes emulation on Android is actually pretty damn good, esp Snes9x EX+.
Also on slot-2 devices you rely on the NOR / PSRAM FS which requires specific hacks per emulator core to work (for example if you want to save data from wram stacks to these memory), in this case a NOR / PSRAM lib is needed. Sure you can count on SRAM / Flash Memory but that is usually corrupted or dumped / clean right after reboot
Also the snemulds cpu core can benefit a lot from NDS hardware (that is not actually used), like MPU EWRAM mirrors permissions, or rely directly on TCM (which run on separate buses, I just moved most timing related variables there ), and use the shared WRAM as stacks rather than software stacks (C SNES PUSH/POP Stack calls)
Uh just use any one of them, it will run smooth on ds or 3ds or whatever
you seem to know a lot about this stuff,
please tell me more
I don't know anything about the "in"stuff What I do know is that if ds/3ds is powerful enough to emulate snes games
so it doesn't matter what emulator you use , Just use the one with better UI
Thanks, Jon Snow.
I think the main motive of replyin' here is to help op , not use references
I have used both, and I can say that Snezzi was very much just a proof of concept, it was slow and compatibility was awful.
SNEmulDS on the other hand runs many SNES games fullspeed, but many games are just incompatible with the speedhacks. It works very well (almost perfectly) for many games though.
