Status Playable

SnesGP2X is a Super nintendo/Famicom Emulator created by NK. So far it is an early beta, the GUI is still rather simple. It runs some games in near full speed without sound.

Currently, many games appear to crash early on, for example in the menu sequence. However, it is not necessarily the same every time, so sometimes persistence can help!
