    Hey, I have a question about where I can find a Super Nintendo emulator to play certain games like-
    Starfox
    Starfox 2
    Pilotwings
    F-Zero
    (Basically any games that use Mode 7)

    I already have an emulator on my PSP that runs most of the SNES games that don't regularly use Mode 7, but I was wondering if anybody could link me to a page here or somewhere else that could run Mode 7 games optimally.

    If you are wondering, I have a PSP Slim 2000, softmodded with 6.60 PRO-C2 Custom Firmware.
    Here's where I got the CFW-

    If anyone can help me out, it would be appreciated greatly.

    Here's the thread for the most current SNES emulator: http://wololo.net/talk/viewtopic.php?t=31564
    Games that use the FX coprocessor don't run all that well. It takes a lot of processing power to emulate another processor. The PSP simply doesn't have the power without a lot of work and ingenuity going into it.

    Apparently the download link on the website you linked me to is broken. Any alternatives?

    Hey, new question. I loaded Kirby Super Star onto the emulator and even though the game doesn't use Mode 7 most of the time, (except for the intro and I think some bosses), it is very slow. It doesn't seem to be a framerate issue either, because the game seems to go slow motion rather than go choppy. Any way to reconcile this?

    Can you suggest the settings I need to set the emulator to in order to play it optimally?

    I generally played with Auto frameskip 9 (when you select the option, you can hit square (maybe it was circle, one of them) to switch it to auto) and I set the engine to Accurate with PSP Acceleration. Those are the main options that will get you some speed, other than clocking which will have to be at 333mhz if you want anything playable.
