Higan

http://byuu.org/higan/
Accurate Nintendo multi-system emulator

higan is an emulator for Nintendos SNES, NES, Gameboy, Gameboy Color and Gameboy Advance. It was formerly called bsnes and the SNES emulation is especially complete and polished.

higan strives to provide the most faithful hardware emulation possible. It focuses on accuracy and clean code, rather than speed and special features. It is meant as a reference emulator to document how the underlying hardware works. As a result the minimum system requirements are high.

There are three profiles that govern the amount of accuracy and required system resources of the SNES emulation. Which profile to use can be set with:

  1. update-alternatives --config higan
