Snes9x is a free NES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) emulator that allows you to play games developed for playing Super Famicom Nintendo or SNES games on your Windows computer. It is necessary to download ROMs separately from the Internet, but Snes9x works flawlessly with them, so you won’t have any problem with its compatibility. Snes9x includes real gems which only were released in Japan and it is coded in C++ language.
Snes9x shows tools dedicated to AVI recording or movie, and ROM information including a great support for peripherals. Your favorite game controllers and game configurations are simple with its useful input screen. Snes9x has an interface which mostly consists on the emulated game, so it’s very intuitive for Nintendo users. You can even set the menus and configuration screens, so it gives you the possibility of customizing your workstation easily.
Snes9x is a useful freeware which can be used for saving the game in that moment when you are in a difficult part. Of course you can restore that game in the same spot where you were the last time you saved it. The user will be able to adjust buffer length, playback rate, stretch image, channels, enable 16-bit stereo and sound, enable bilinear filtering and maintain aspect ratio.
Extra technical information
Snes9x shows netplay capabilities, so you have the possibility of connecting it to a server or setting the application to act and work as one. It allows you to send ROM image from the program to other clients and sync using reset game. Besides, you can use Snes9x all the time because it runs on low computer resources and it’s compatible with every Windows version. Maybe, if you are running Windows 95, in concrete the original version, you will need to download OpenGL upgrade kit.
If you want to simulate also the sound provided in the NES, apart from the possibility of using a DirectSound compatible sound card, we recommend you to use FMOD’s older Windows WAVE sound driver, which will make it more realistic than other similar games. Snes9x uses full-screen mode with DirectDraw to reach the required resolution. But if you want to take advantage of all its features and characteristics, we recommend you to have your desktop set to 256 colors and 16-bit or in high color mode (32768/65536 colors)as with other similar games.
