    I read the links above that mention the "best" emus for each console, but they fail to say if they can load roms that are zipped.

    SNEmulDS
    nesDS
    jEnesisDS
    Lameboy
    DSMasterPlus
    ColecoDS
    FrodoDS
    SpeccyDS
    ZXDS
    StyxDS
    StellaDS
    MarcaDS
    ScummVM

    I am mostly interested in the first 5 listed, but I like the last 3 also.

    Also, how big are the sav/srm files created for each rom when you load them?

    Of the first five, Lameboy is the only one, and I believe (not entirely certain) that the uncompressed rom has to be under 2 or 3 MB for it to work. MarcaDS might use zip files but without compression, and I don't know about the others.

    Save files depend entirely on the system being emulated. NES save files are usually very small, GBC save files can be up to 32 KB in size, SNES save files usually max out at 32 KB, etc. Savestates tend to be bigger since they contain RAM dumps in addition to regular save data.
