ZSNES Comments

Overseas Netplay

Positive Comment by Slugnaut
about ZSNES Sep 2012

ZSNES is pretty good, it's the only SNES emulator I use for Netplay. Works well, I've played with a friend from Europe (I'm in US), and aside from the occasional lag or rare desync, works without major issues. If you do desync, you can send your save state with ZSNES to fix it.

about ZSNES and higan, Snes9x May 2012

Zsnes was good for its time, but with more accurate (BSNES) and updated (Snes9x) emulators available, people really should move on.
