    So I finally got around to putting the snes emulator on my supercard and I come to find out that it only shows a white screen but plays sound. Is there a fix for this. Thanks in advance.

    The best you can do is check the snemulds compatibility list as well as make sure that snemulds actually works on your supercard.

    It's pretty safe to say at this point that you'll never get Super-FX emulation on the DS.

    Edit: Okay, after posting that I realized that someone is going to post about the new cards that have onboard processors, and try and call me wrong. I wouldn't be surprised if even with those you won't get it.

    The problem is getting the special chip emulation to run on the DS, which I'm guessing is in addition to the snes emulator as well. So that even with a flashcart with onboard CPUs, getting it to work right will require a bit of effort.

    Effort as well as processing power required. Super-FX emulation, for reasons not worth going into, is slow. However, if you want a quick and dirty but terrible comparison, the GBA runs on a 16.78mhz processor, and the Super-FX alone is (simplified) 21. So when you are getting reports that gba emulation is laggy on those new cards, it does not bode well for some of the enhancement chips for the SNES.

    Your computer can emulate the SNES at full speed!? Call the presses, this is truly unbelievable!

    I suppose it's worth noting that nearly all emulators don't do a very good job of emulating the Super-FX or the SA1. Yes using some PC emulators people who don't know better won't notice the flaws and it will run at full speed, but if you are running an emulator that accurately emulates either of them then even a modern netbook might not be able to get full speed.

    That said of course, people don't care for accuracy and will deal with visual or audible glitches that are introduced when people insert hacks in order to speed up gameplay to an acceptable level. However, before you get excited how this is going to happen for the new DS flashcards, it should be noted that PSP emulators barely have working Super-FX and SA1 support. Good luck getting a chip more powerful than a PSP on a flashcard, and if somehow magically it happens, say goodbye to your battery life.
