@ThanosReXXX Thing is, I don't disagree with some of your points. For example, I avoid 6 button Genesis games because most Six-Button Genesis games are a nightmare to play on Nintendo's controller layout (even on the Wii it was bad). The same problem happens with Atari 2600 games that made use of the switches on the console for me.

Likewise, there are good achievements and their are just bad ones out there. As I said, they are a tool to push me to try something different in games (or just different games themselves). I have tried my hand at speed running because of achievements, same for stupid challenges (like four white mages in FF). It is a little gotcha to remind me and to prove I managed it (especially like that there is a hardcore version that doesn't allow save state scumming).

Ultimately we just have different visions for the console, and neither are right or wrong. You love the purity and celebration of the SNES system and I love the playing around with the potential of the board and seeing how developers have pushed each system to their limits. For example, I am amazed that the Atari 2600 saw games released until 1989 (which was the same year that the Genesis was introduced in NA and Castlevania III, Wonder Boy III, TMNT II: Arcade Game, Dragon Warrior, and Mega Man 2 were released).

I thank you for the discussion. I've honestly enjoyed hearing a differing view of how to approach the SNES Classic.

@ilikeike Thank you for taking the time to let us know here. Very useful to know in advance. Congrats on finishing such a critically acclaimed SNES title. It's one of many that I've yet to play for any significant length of time ☺️

What's your next title to play on the SNES Classic?

@Darknyht You're welcome. Always nice to see someone being able to agree to disagree without resorting to caveman behavior.

@Lroy Trust me, it was my pleasure to play Chrono Trigger... solely for research, of course Absolutely give it a shot if you get the chance, it's a true joy to play if you have any interest in JRPG's at all. Barring those glitches in the Undersea Palace, the SNES Classic is a great way to experience the game. It's better than the PC port at the very least!

I'm still debating what to play next. I've been thinking about Terranigma since that's generally accepted to be one of the best RPG's on the SNES aside from Chrono Trigger. But I also think I'm due for a break from JRPG's for a bit, so I'll probably try Donkey Kong Country 2 first since that's supposed to be one of the best platformers on the system. I certainly enjoyed the original DKC on the SNES Classic, so I'm sure I'll have fun with the sequel.

Mario Galaxy is ten years old, and now I feel old.

@ilikeike Cool, enjoy DKC 2 and if and when you get to that other JRPG you mentioned, let us know how it plays. I recall that was a title that possibly had some difficulty running in the inbuilt SNES Classic emulator. Might be one to run using RetroArch but I'll let other more informed folks comment further on that if needed.

@ilikeike @Lroy Yes, in principle, it is true that ANY game that doesn't run, or runs badly on the standard emulator in the SNES Mini, will run, or run much better with RetroArch'es Snes9x emulator.

Of course, practically nobody has tested ALL games, so there might still be games that have difficulties and/or suffer glitches with either of the emulators. But regardless, Snes9x is one of the best SNES/Super Famicom emulators on ANY platform, so you'd be hard pressed to find an emulator that is compatible with more titles than that one.

@ThanosReXXX @ilikeike @Lroy KMFDManic has published quite a few additional cores for SNES Classic RetroArch, there has been very few games I haven't been able to get to run including prototypes. So far, everything I have tried has worked with either Canoe or snes9x (and there is a fairly extensive but not complete list here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12HKfz4ZQBy6Ip5awvh8t2...). The biggest thing is to remember to switch the clover-canoe-shvc-wr portion of the command to be snes once the module is installed.

I would recommend using Hakchi2 CE if you haven't gone too deep into Hakchi2, although there are instructions on how you can import your settings. The user interface is a little easier to use and there is a module store to find additional cores. Best of all is that once it is installed, it will handle the system reboots automatically and uploading new content doesn't require re-uploading everything.

Hi! I am not checking this website as often as I used to (I've always been more of a reader than a poster). Anyway, I recently got a SNES mini and everything is going great so far, except for a couple of issues I thought maybe you guys could help me out with.

One of the things I've noticed is some minor slowdown on a few games that I think wasn't there in the good old days. If I remember correctly, there are a few areas in some stages in Super Castlevania IV which present some (thankfully minor) slowdown issues that were not present in the "original" game as far as I remember. This doesn't bother me much, since I remember performance issues here and there back in the day and I can get used to them.

The other problem, which is quite annoying, is that I can't seem to pull off any special moves at all in Street Fighter II Turbo. I am still using the original controllers and haven't tried my Wii or Wii U pro controllers yet. I remember having this exact issue when emulating Street Fighter 2 Turbo on my computer years ago, though. I know the D pad works correctly because every direction seems to work and respond fine when pushed.

Any ideas? Sorry about the long post!

EDIT: a few typos

I haven't touched the SNES Classic in a while, but after figuring this out, I may try it out at some point. Has anyone put any DS games on it? Apparently they managed to get most DS games running perfectly on this thing. Looks like I may replace the original Kirby Superstar with Ultra. lol

@ThanosReXXX Do you know how to get Hakchi v3.5.3 working? I updated the software, but the method of installing cores etc had changed, & I can't even get simple arcade ROMs like King Of Dragons working anymore.

I also want to have an external usb storage method (I have the USB and adaptor) so I don't have to compromise on the storage, but have no idea how to get this working. I know it's possible, but I haven't found any online video tutorials as yet.

@Demonscythe I haven't fiddled with any of the Hakchi versions for quite a while, so I honestly wouldn't be able to tell you. I have heard that using Hakchi CE is now preferable over older versions, so maybe you should look into that. Also, look up 8 Bit Flashback's tutorial videos. I've found his videos to be the best ones by far, and far as I know, they still work for all versions of Hakchi, and if not, you could always send him a message. Perhaps he's inclined to make a new video...

EDIT:
On a side note, I've never installed any arcade systems or other systems on my SNES Mini, because I wanted to keep it pure, as in: SNES/Super Famicom games only.

Perhaps @Darknyht may be able to help you out, where adding arcade games and/or cores are concerned.

Either way, hope you get the result you're looking for. Good luck.

@Demonscythe You're welcome. Glad to be of what little help I could...

You might wanna re-post that original message in that earlier thread you made, though. Always good for people to have some more info on the issue.

I recently ran into a game that doesn't work on the stock canoe emulator, so I added retroarch and snes9x.

Problem is it only runs games for about 3 seconds then forces a save state option. If I reload it, it plays for another 3 and forces another etc.

Anyone know why this is happening and how I can fix it?
