Be honest now. You don't have to post, I just want to see some numbers.

For the curious, I am simply conducting some demographic research on emulator preference to get a better picture of how many people are in each camp.

We also have a poll going on Facebook that you can share with your friends to help us out. Thanks!
Mind letting us know what this is about? Or is it a surprise?

Probably about the "ZSNES elitism" stuff and tools in the future not working on ZSNES.

Your layout has been removed.
It's not about anything. I just thought it'd be nice to have some demographic information about emulator preference.
Perhaps it would be useful to have some information about any secondary emulators people use as well?
I'm really just interested in which emulator people would boot up to just casually play a ROM. I'm not asking which emulator people technically consider to be "the best".
BSNES. An old version, on compatibility mode, if that matters (probably not).
I see. Some people still might use more than one, though (for instance, ZSNES for most things but SNES9X for Earthworm Jim 2 and Super Mario RPG, or bsnes for most things but ZSNES for old broken hacks). I guess you did say "favorite", though.

Also, I use no$sns, but if it doesn't work, I get out my time machine and go grab a copy of higan 0.97.
>bsnes not in first place

Come on guys.
I'm a bit weird. I debug my stuff (mostly) on snes9x143 (its fastforward makes it easier to get anywhere), but for playing anything (both hack and official game), I use bsnes (070 compatibility). I also keep s9x152 around because it has RAM watching, and bsnes080 for compatibility testing.

There are far too many emulators.

<blm> zsnes users are the flatearthers of emulation
My personal favorite is SNESGT but since there's no Linux version, #based SNES9x-gtk all night every night all purposes

Just look above you...
If it's something that can be stopped, then just try to stop it!
I use SNES9X For most games, but some Hacks Require ZSNES.

Like A Super Mario Thing Requires ZSNES or it gets stuck on a castle on SNES9X.

Come on guys.

While I wholly support bsnes and it's mission, I still voted for snes9x. bsnes has some nice things, but byuu is not a UI designer and he doesn't care about the user. I have never even been able to get the newest versions of bsnes to run any games (haven't tried that hard). The newest version of snes9x is safe enough for the light gaming I do (that which I don't do on the snes, meaning my testing the rom to make sure it works), and the fast forward feature works much better than bsnes' same. I still use bsnesd for debugging (an old version usually, newer if I'm doing something particularly clever), but snes9x just has the corner on usable emulators that actually work.
I use SNES9X for anything related to play compatible SMW hacks and games which doesn't work on BSNES. Otherwise, I would use the latter for everything.
The only reason I prefer snes9x over ZSNES is because it's easier to record stuff, and it has frame advance, tho I have read that ZSNES produces smaller video sizes.

Legacy custom music


How am I so creative? I think taking walks might have something to do with it.
Every single level I will ever make in SMM2 will be easier than Ultra Necrozma.
BSNES, because of it's accuracy, which makes it better.

Actually, WAY smaller videos. I've dumped a 13 minutes video in snes9x and it was like 6 GB, whereas Zsnes makes about 20 MB videos.
ZSNES because I grew up on it. No really.

Edit: Also, because I find it fast and easy to wear use.
ZSNES because, same reasons as above post.
