Details for ZMZ v1.08
Tools - ZMZ v1.08 Link - Show random
File Name: ZMZ v1.08
Authors: Alcaro, The ZSNES team
Operating System: Windows
Platforms: SNES
Games: General
Source Available: Yes
Featured: No
Website: None
Description: ZMZ combines the GUI of ZSNES with a Libretro backend; this allows people who like ZSNES' interface but dislike its poor emulation accuracy to get the best of both worlds.

It ships with an intermediate Snes9x version (newer than 1.53) by default; if it's too slow, try Snes9x-Next, or if you prefer bsnes, grab one from the same source. Note that some features, like layer toggle and SPC dumping, may not work with non-default cores.

It is also only compatible with x86 cores; ignore x86_64 cores even if you have a 64bit cpu. To switch core, go to Misc->Libretro.

Not sure if this is a bug, I've experience the emulator that every time I start the program, it takes very long to load before appearing, this is after a while after using it a bunch of times. I didn't change settings besides these:
Speed options:
Max frame skip: 0
FastFwd ratio: x30
Slowdwn ratio: /2
~ fast foward
--- slow down
= + EMU speed
SPC reset speed
- - EMU speed
P pause game
B INCR frame

Save options:
Save: tab
Load: w
Pic: F3
Rewind: Q

I don't know if the software is bloating, or saving more and more data into the software. I don't play a ton of hacks and once in a blue moon, I download a new hack.

My favourite GBA emulator
Posted by: mish1 - | Link
Excellent emulator. I tried Super Mario All-Stars in ZMZ and saw the advantages of playing the Snes9x style within the ZSNES interface:

In ZSNES, in Super Mario Bros. (worlds 4-1, 6-1 and 8-2) and Super Mario Bros .: The Lost Levels, (worlds 4-1 and 4-2), Lakitu's eggs are glitched, however in ZMZ it is no longer possible.

Another example is in Super Mario Bros. 3: In worlds 3-3, 3-8 and 4-2, if you play them in ZSNES, garbage black squares appear, but in ZMZ the bug is already fixed.

This is still working fine. I used this since December 2019.
Posted by: El Cuh Fermin - | Link
Does not work, still has the same issues like zsnes 1.51,same inaccurate sounds.
Fusoya zsnes emulator did a much better than zmz for accuracy.

Not worth it for all super nintendo, super famicom games.

more accurate ;)
Posted by: h.carrell - | Link
For some reason, the emulator is not recognizing any other x86 cores I placed in there. Could be a bug? Please fix this!

I do like the emulator interface and that is better to use this than the original ZSNES.

i replaced ZSNES because it was not recommended,but i love the interface because it was simple....thank god theres other recommended emulator that has same interface ZMZ!,it even supports my old cfg file from ZSNES,good work
Posted by: Araiguma Kiruno - | Link
Most hacks don't work with this, just like Snes9x.

Audio stutter/buzzing, and crash when level ends.

I'm sorry but I'm staying with ZSNES since this is terrible for me> :(

best emulator
Posted by: carinha do discord - | Link
There is a resolution bug if you hook your PC to an HDMI to display on your TV, and set your pc display to “Show only on 2” on “Multiple Displays”, causes the emulator to be scaled, but says the same number of pixels for width and height. For example, I set the emulator to 256x224, if I try to do a gif recording and set the resolution to 256x224, the windows don't match:

i dont know a original name
How do i download SNES ROMs and where do i put them'
Posted by: i dont know a original name - | Link

You need to download a SNES ROM to play a game.

Once you have downloaded your SNES ROM, run ZMZ, click on GAME, then LOAD, and find your SNES ROM.

Your SNES ROMs should be saved at your downloads folder.

Nasty bug: you have access and control on that window even if you have the other window selected, even when in front of it.

The bad audio quality that "niko" below alludes to is actually the poor audio synchronization that characteristic of the ZSNES program interface. In other words, ZSNES has the very same issue.

However, the actual SNES audio hardware emulation is flawless (unlike ZSNES).

Really Bad Audio Quality.

If someone tell me how to fix i give a higher rating, but i try a lot and give up.

If it's been accepted onto the database, it's safe.

Will the emulator have viruses in it?
Posted by: J-Wolf17FTW - | Link
Audio crackles for some reason.
Posted by:  XenonZed - | Link
It works great! I am curious, however, if there are any plans on including netplay.
Posted by: gootube2000 - | Link
By the way, of out pure curiosity, I loaded in an NES core from Libretro to see what would happen and I was quite astounded.

Edit: It also works with Metroid Fusion and Metroid: Zero Mission (VBA-Next core); Tetris and Mike Tyson's Punch Out (FCE Ultra core). NES games are stretched to the point of being unplayable, but work. It crashed marvelously with the two DS ROMs (Ace Attorney: T&T and Brain Age, with a DeSmuMe core) and any Pokémon ROM I tried and it black screened on Life and Death 2: The Brain (DOSBox core, not that I expected it to run). So yeah, you can use this as quite the good GBA emulator. NES too if you find a way to fix the screen resolution.

I notice that the L+R/U+D D-pad option doesn't work. When holding left AND right, the player simply walks right, which is normal, but when riding yoshi, the glitch is supposed to make yoshi keeps turning around as he "slides to the right".
Posted by: HammerBrother - | Link

it wont let me open it.
Posted by: HackerBros360 - | Link
It's like the best of both worlds. The good UI and speed of ZSNES and the accuracy of SNES9X/BSNES. Sometimes the sound snaps, crackles, and pops, though.
Posted by: kianworld - | Link
False positive. Add it to your exception list.
Posted by: Masterlink - | Link
When I try and download it, AVG always detects a virus on it! Why is that?
Posted by: Mario3andU - | Link
I tried it, and I must say, pretty good for accuracy and stability, but the audio in my opinion is step back from ZSNES because it crackles constantly, and is very irritating. I know for a fact that other users are experiencing the exact same issue, as I read this emulator's tool release thread. But is there any setting that would fix or at least lessen the audio problems? If not I shall learn to tolerate it as best I can.
Posted by: WhatTheHack - | Link
Alright, I am giving this a try right now! Hopefully this will have less irritating issues than ZSNES had...
Posted by: WhatTheHack - | Link
The recording function is completely broken. Or I'm just too dumb to use it properly^^
But what it does: It takes my input and when I press "PLAY" it does just, nothing^^
Posted by:  xHF01x - | Link
Testing with bsnes mercury diggin the bsnes improvements. It litterally won't recognize this core >_> wtf?
Posted by: Wingzero007 - | Link
Found a problem: the recording function in the misc menu is broken, after you record, hitting ”play" button doesn't play what you have recorded, rather play afterwards. Unlike ZSNES. Another problem is that the fast forward is much slower than ZSNES, even when the max frame skip is the highest value possible.

Verified that this WILL work on Wine on Ubuntu 14.04/Linux Mint 17.1 -TESTED- not sure about other non-ubuntu distros although I think it should. =P
