ZSNES – a SNES games emulator for PC (also known as the Super Nintendo emulator or Super Nintendo Entertainment System) that runs on Microsoft® Windows®, DOS®, Linux, FreeBSD, MAC® OS X® (x86) and Microsoft® Xbox® (unofficial). ZSNES is an open-source Super Nintendo Entertainment System emulator written in x86 assembly, C, and C++. Bleeding with cutting edge SNES emulation, ZSNES is easily comparable to other leading SNES emulators, such as Snes9x, SNEeSeeese, Super Sleuth, and bsnes.
It has a lot of features (e.g. speed options, fast-forward function, image upscaling, multiplayer gameplay using a TCP/IP network, use of cheats, save states support, movie recording etc.) that are best described in ZSNES Documentation ( available as a HTML or TXT file) found in “docs” folder (after you extract the content of ZSNES archive). To be able to play older games that were available on ROM cartridge you need ROMs or ROM images with them.
ZSNES is a SNES emulator that has been worked on since 1997. Originally programmed by zsKnight and _Demo_, the project has since then attracted a number of new developers and contributors.
On April 2, 2001 the ZSNES project was GPL’ed and its source released to the public.
