The purpose of BSNES is a bit different from other emulators.
It focuses on accuracy, debugging functionality, and clean code.
The emulator does not focus on things that would hinder accuracy.
This includes speed and game-specific hacks for compatibility.
As a result, the minimum system requirements for bsnes are very high.
The emulator itself was not derived from any existing emulator source
code, such as SNES9x. It was written from scratch by myself.
Any similarities to other emulators are merely coincidental.
BSNES also has Game Boy (GB, GBC and GBA) and NES emulation support.
Note that you will need the GBA BIOS image to use this. There will not
be any high-level emulation of the BIOS functions for obvious reasons.
Name the file "bios.rom", and place it inside the
"/var/games/bsnes/Game Boy Advance.sys/" directory.
Important! Most likely you won't be able to run SNES ROMs until you
"purify" them with snespurify utility.
Warning! BSNES is still not very stable and may crash with some video
settings, filters/shaders and hardware combination.
