SNES Emulator Released

Author : kdollar

Guest Post by Lonman06

It’s been an exciting week due to the fact that the SNES emulator for the iPod Touch has been released.  I must say that I was probably one of the first people to download the full public release, not the beta version.

While this is the first version of the public release, it is not without problems.  I think this is expected at this point.  It took quite some time for the NES emulator to run as smoothly as it does now and there are still even minor problems with it.

I have been playing around with it for a few days now and have tested a good amount of SNES ROMs.  Some of these roms work great, while others are barely playable.  I would expect to see this improved with every new update.

To get the SNES emulator add this source to your installer:

Below is a list of many games and the quality of the emulator playback of them:

Donkey Kong Country 2

  2. DrOMFG, February 9, 2008:

    ROMs can be found all over the internet, just use google
    and to put ROMs on your iPod youll need to SSH into your ipod and put ROMs into
    this should work for both 1.1.3 and 1.1.2

    I don’t have wifi at my house and downloaded a program “DiskAid” to add programs via usb… is there a way i can get the snes emulator and add it thru this program and if so how?

  13. Nick, July 31, 2009:

    That repository address listed will not work for some reason. I tried adding it to Cydia and I got an error message.

  14. Ben, September 6, 2009:

    You don’t have to add that repository to Cydia. It is usually one of the ones already there when you jailbreak your iPod. Just search for the emulator.

  22. Even girls are enthusiastic about action and war games for the reason that drama included in them keeps them linked to the
    characters inside the game. For bingo, online flash games have
    been a really positive development. Through the application of internet connection people world
    wide can communicate easily and still have
    made the entire world smaller for those who are million miles from each other.

    Aw, this was an exceptionally good post. Finding the time and actual effort to
    make a top notch article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and don’t
    seem to get nearly anything done.

  24. It’s very easy to find out any topic on net as compared to textbooks, as I found this piece of writing at this
    web page.

  25. arrow, October 10, 2014:

    Just want to say your article is as astonishing. The clarity in your submit is
    simply excellent and that i could assume you’re a
    professional in this subject. Well together with your permission allow me to seize your RSS feed to keep up to date with impending post.
    Thank you a million and please continue the gratifying work.
