Hi...

I have a sudden urge to start playing some old skool SNES games again (Zelda - Link to the past, Secret of Mana, Super Metroid, Mario Kart etc etc)...

I would always (and still do) use zsnes as an emulator on Windows, but since I am now a proud Mac owner, I want to continue playing on my MBP. Does anyone have any good suggestions as to a solid emulator? I am tempted to use SNES9x but am unwilling to jump straight in!

Any body have any thoughts?

Regards

I did a quick google search and found this site.
The Emulator Zone - Macintosh Emulators



I know of two emulators, but they are for N64 and NES

N64
sixtyforce

NES
Software: Nestopia

Thanks TomTom...

That's where I found the one I mentioned in my post, just wondering if anybody had used it before to shed some light on any experiences...

Thanks

I use BSNES (link) with Emulator Enhancer for support for an external controller and I've never had any problems with it.
