    Brazilian Hacker Vitor Vilela released the first stable patch!
    You can get it on the projects github page.
    https://github.com/VitorVilela7/SA1-Root

    This patch removes the Slowdown from the original version, thanks to the SA-1 enhancement chip taking up most of the workload from the Snes CPU.

    He also announced his return to the SA-1 enhanced Super Mario World romhack called Touhou Mario 2!

    In the meantime we can play Gradius 3 and follow him on twitter.

    Gradius III now rockets up the Most Essential SNES Games of All Time list thanks to this incredible patch; something I've been wanting since I was a kid.

    It's ludicrous that it now runs better than the original PCB.

    These SA-1 remapped games will be the future of the platform.

    What would that do? SA-1 is only used to offload CPU resources, the GSU-1 wouldn't really help any further.

    There is a interview with Vita Vilea talking about the SA-1 Chip, Gradius 3 and the Snes on Youtube!
    The language is portuguese with english subtitle.
