Super Mario Bros. Forum  /  NES Emulator

Hey all! I want to get into speedrunning games like this. I am wondering what a good Emulator is and how you download games on them


OpenEmu is also an approved emulator, which is used by players who play on a Mac instead of PC, but beware it runs at a ever so slightly slower framerate (it won’t matter until you are going for top times).

Most top level emulator runners prefer Nestopia for the lowest input lag.

Clicking the rules button on the leaderboard should give you the information regarding that.

You're kinda on your own as far as acquiring ROMs. Please don't ask in the forums. We'll delete any links, and specific instructions as they are not allowed here.

Bizhawk is really good for accuracy. I'm pretty sure you're not allowed to post ROM sites though so I can't help you there.
