Accurate Nintendo multi-system emulator
  4 reviews

Higan is an emulator for Nintendos SNES, NES, Gameboy, Gameboy Color and Gameboy Advance. It was formerly called bsnes and the SNES emulation is especially complete and polished.

higan strives to provide the most faithful hardware emulation possible. It focuses on accuracy and clean code, rather than speed and special features. It is meant as a reference emulator to document how the underlying hardware works. As a result the minimum system requirements are high.

There are three profiles that govern the amount of accuracy and required system resources of the SNES emulation. Which profile to use can be set with:

# update-alternatives --config higan

This is WAY better than ZSNES!!! Accurate sound emulation without cracking and smooth video. It is a little light on features compared to ZSNES but since it runs so much better than ZSNES you'll be too busy playing all of your favorite SNES classics to care! A+++ MUST DOWNLOAD!!!

Less user-friendly than ZSNES. higan's emulation is superior to ZSNES. I still prefer to use ZSNES, though. I haven't tried any ROMs for other Nintendo systems.

Bom, porém deveria ter mais configurações de vídeo.
