    Many of my friends recently got tubehax and ironhax and were very excited about SNES gaming on it... but yes some games did not work such as legend of Zelda link to the past. But I found the problem. BlargSNES 1.3 is the current latest one and it has a lot of compability issues but blargSNES 1.2 on the other hand fixes this. This may be help full to someone with BlargSNES.

    Fortunately the official website hosts version 1.2 but 3dbrew, where most people go for 3dsx apps host 1.3 so so don't get it from there instead:
    Download from here: http://blargsnes.kuribo64.net/

    Check ROM compability from here but be warned most games have been check using BlargSNES 1.3 so it might work on 1.2: http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/BlargSnes_Compatibility_List

    The emulator is still in early stages iirc. Give it time.

    I'll try that version, though.

    But the funny thing is the older version is better than the newer one.

    Yeah it is... but isn't Project 1.6 better than 2.1? Not sure :P

    I think that sort of thing happens pretty frequently with emulators and games in general.

    Yea especially with emulators.... I remember on my Wii 5 years ago I couldn't get SNES9GX emulator to work with Zelda link to the past but an older emulator version fixed it :)

    blargSNES isn't a ROM, you can link to it. The official web site is dated and still serving version 1.2 for anyone who wants that.

    blargSNES 1.2 seems to crash in my old 3DS XL though. I've booted it 2 times in total and crashes right at the ROM selection.

    Apparently if I try to access the config it crashes. I don't like 1:1 for some reason.

    I have European (I'm in Australia) 3DS with latest firmware as well 9.9 and with ironhax. Hmm try some other version I guess? maybe 1.1? And does 1.3 work for you?

    Yes 1.3 does work. I can survive with 1:1, it's only the options that crashes. At least ALTTP seems to work fine

    Wait I'm confused: Is the config crashing on 1.2 or 1.3 or both?

    EDIT: I think I found a solution for you. Open to the root of your 3DS SD CARD. there should be a file named blargSnes.ini . Open that file and replace everything with this:

    HardwareRenderer=1ScaleMode=1DirPath=/snes/

    I'm pretty sure 1.2 recognises this file as well because I put in 1.2 after 1.3 and all my config was restore (I set stretch to screen on 1.3 and I replaced my version with 1.2 and it was already stretched screen)

    I had version 1.3 so I moved that to my desktop and deleted from the sd and put 1.2 on the sd card. So yea I guess copy over your 1.3 to your desktop and delete it from your sd card. I don't know if this will even help the issue at all but worth a try.
