Does RetroN 5 work for SMW Hacks?

Has anybody been using a Hyperkin RetroN 5 for playing SMW hacks? I don't know if you can even use it for playing hacks so let me know your experience if you have been able to use it this way. Im a beginner trying to get into playing hacks more and I want to do it on a console if I can.
I believe most hacks that are compatible with modern emulators are also compatible with consoles.

There are some older hacks that break on things that aren't ZSNES.
Very very very shortly, this drab, workaday world and everything in it will be changed forever! Follow us into the golden country, into the empire of the senseless!
No what retron5 does is it dumps the rom from the cart and then just plays the rom on emulator, its completely worthless piece of plastic and anyone who uses or owns it should feel bad.

If you want to play on real snes, you need an flashcart like super everdrive(cheap but doesn't play superFX and SA-1 games), FX PAK/sd2snes plays them but is more expensive.

If you just want to play on TV then anything with HDMI output that runs emulators does the trick, your PC, laptop.. if you want something dedicated, I'll suggest Nvidia shield tv.

smol ARG creator who has a love for creepypastas and creepy SMW romhacks.. nothing much here
The ones that are compatible with snes9x are usually also compatible with Retron 5. It has to be an american copy of the game though.

That's quite condescending.

Nice argument lol. Playing on retron5 is no difference than emulating(and its emulation is not even that good), and its worse and laggy actually, you have no access to roms it dumps, cant run roms off sd card, very poor build quality, it erases your saves in the cart, you cant play rom hacks, death grip on the carts(to point where you can physically pull off the cart connector off the retron5), they use stolen code and violated licensing of the emulators they used for long time..
Retron 5 is just not good product and there are many better alternatives, especially considering main topic here is to play SMW rom hacks.

I don't get what you mean by "you cant play rom hacks". I've had no problem running the ones that are compatible with snes9x.
