  • Qt and SDL ports for a heavy-weight and a light-weight frontend.
  • Save type detection, even for flash memory size.
  • Real-time clock support, even without configuration.
  • A built-in BIOS implementation, and ability to load external BIOS files.
  • Turbo/fast-forward support by holding Tab.
  • Frameskip, configurable up to 9.
  • Screenshot support.
  • 9 savestate slots. Savestates are also viewable as screenshots.
  • Video and GIF recording.
  • Remappable controls for both keyboards and gamepads.
  • Loading from ZIP and 7z files.
  • IPS, UPS and BPS patch support.
