Setup and Use an SNES Emulator in Windows 7

Edited by Lukward Thomason, Crystal, Eng, Anonymous

Hi, you're watching VisiHow. This is a tutorial on how to setup and use an SNES emulator on a Windows 7 computer. One of the best emulators, in our opinion, is "SNES9X". The latest version of it is 1.53. You can download the emulator here: http://www.emulator-zone.com/doc.php/snes/snes9x.html and then follow along with the tutorial. Make sure that you already have the SNES game ROMs on your hard drive.

    In this window, there is "Joypad #1" in the drop-down list under "Controller".
    There should be a checkmark next to it for it to be enabled. In the left column, it says "Up", "Down", "Left", "Right" and so on. This means that these are the buttons on the SNES controller. On the right side of that column, there are spaces which can be edited.
