BSNES is a cross-platform multi Nintendo System emulator

BSNES is a cross-platform multi Nintendo System emulator that focuses on accuracy, and clean code, above all else.


bsnes is a multi-system emulator that began development on 2004-10-14. It currently supports the following systems:

    Super Nintendo
    Game Boy
    Game Boy Color
    Game Boy Advance

bsnes also supports the following subsystems:

    Super Game Boy
    BS-X Satellaview
    Sufami Turbo

bsnes focuses on accuracy and clean code above all else. It never uses speed or compatibilty hacks. As a result, the minimum system requirements are greater than with other emulators.

Casual gamers are encouraged to use the compatibility profile, which is twice as fast under SNES emulation.
Enthusiasts are encouraged to use the accuracy profile, which is more precise.
Developers creating new SNES code are encouraged to use laevateinn, the bsnes debugger.

Releases are always bleeding-edge — regressions may be present. If stability is required, choose a previous release that has been well-tested. Downloads available:

    bsnes v089 source (Windows, OS X, Linux)
    bsnes v088 source (Windows, OS X, Linux)
    bsnes v088 binary (Windows 64-bit) [accuracy profile]
    bsnes v088 binary (Windows 32-bit) [compatibility profile]
    laevateinn v086 binary (Windows) [debugger]
    Previous releases

Recommended system requirements
    Intel Core 2 Duo or AMD Phenom processor
    Video card that supports Direct3D 9.0 or OpenGL 2.0
    Linux port: hardware-accelerated video driver with OpenGL or X-Video support

100% compatibility
At this time, bsnes has no known bugs, contains no hacks, and runs every official SNES game ever released.

I would like to acknowledge the invaluable contributions made to bsnes by the following individuals:

    Andreas Naive
    Dr. Decapitator
    Jonas Quinn
    Lord Nightmare
    Łukasz Krawczyk
    Matthew Callis
    Richard Bannister

For Windows and Linux systems:

BSNES v0.6.8
Mac OS X Nintendo SNES Emulator

BSNES has a somewhat different purpose to most emulators; it focuses on accuracy over performance. To that end, it does not include any game specific hacks, or idle-loop skipping optimizations commonly found in other emulators. To add to the fun, it uses a cycle accurate hardware emulation. The net result of all this is the highest system requirements of any software I've released to date; those without an Intel-based Mac need not apply. If you meet the requirements, however, this is the most accurate SNES emulation available on the Macintosh platform.


    Cycle accurate emulation.
    Support for DSP1, DSP2, DSP3, DSP4, OBC1, SA1, SDD1, SPC7110, SRTC, ST010, and SuperFX custom chips.
    Full sound.

For Intel Mac with OS X 10.5 or later:
