Super Nintendo Emulation has arrived. Pocket SNES is a great Super Nintendo Emulator for the Blackjack 2. The graphics are superb, as to be expected, and it plays pretty well. The one thing I’m getting used to is the 4 button key placement (A, B, X, Y) .. i haven’t found the perfect key mapping to allow me to easily hold down multiple buttons at once.
The CAB file installs a PocketSNES shortcut in Start > Games.
When you start PocketSNES the first time, go to Options > Keys… and define you’re all your keys, especially the “Menu” key. (I was unable to figure out what the default “Menu” key mapping was after I entered the game)
Note: You will not be able to download ROMs directly to your smartphone using PocketIE (Mobile Internet Explorer). PocketIE supports very few mime-types/file extensions for download and ROM files aren’t included. I suggest using Opera Mobile to download the ROM files directly to you Smartphone, or download them to your computer and copy them over to your Smartphone using ActiveSync/Bluetooth/etc.
If you have are having problems installing and using the PocketSNES emulator, checkout this YouTube video.
