I use ZSNES. Works for me. It's a great replacement for all of my old carts with dead batteries.

I've generally used SNES9x. ZSNES is nice, though.

I've been building my ROM library for a few years now and I strongly recommend going with a torrent. It's much easier. It will give you a large base to work with and you can still go out and get specific roms afterwards.

yeah i was think about a torrent but i just like picking and choosing which games to get, most torrents host all the games ever made and i really dont need that

As fast as torrents are, though, you can download every game ever made and then choose the ones you like. I guarantee it'll take less effort than downloading all of them that you want individually.

Not to mention that the whole collection is only a gig or so. Might as well just keep em all around in case you ever think of another game you want.

So, I just downloaded 650 megabytes of SNES games.




Then I realized that the reason I'd never hooked the Sidewinder up to my "new" (now in excess of a year old) computer is because it's not a USB gamepad.

You shouldn't need a USB gamepad. I've never had a probleem with ZSNES and I only recently started using one. You can pick one up for about $15 or so though. You don't need very many buttons for SNES.

I've been looking around a bit, but I don't want a Dual Shock 2 style controller. :(

If I could find an S-Controller style one, though, I'd be all upons.

I'm close to just getting one of those SNES controller + adapter packs.

At the moment, I'm using WSAD for D-Paddiness, the arrow keys as x-y-b-a, and Q and numpad 0 as shoulder buttons. :D

Cool. I didn't know those were available. It would have to be fairly cheap to be worth it for me, though.

found that one on ebay for 14 bucks + 5 for shipping not bad for being under 20, plus it has for slots, probably cost just as much to buy a computer controller

That one would actually be better for me. I already have five PS2 controllers so that one device would replace four PC controllers in my house.

If you have a modded xbox (softmod or modchip) there are 3 disks posted regularly to Alt.Binaries.Games.Xbox. They are called the Ultimate Emulator Discs. If I remember correctly, the 1'st one has NES, SNES, Genesis, and old school systems (2600, Intellivision, Colecovision, etc.) with a huge number of roms.

The second and third discs have a nice collection of MAME games (Almost every major Arcade game ever).
