bsnes or what is now known as higan is the most advanced emulator available for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Unlike most emulators, bsnes’s primary is accuracy at the cost of performance.
The aim is to emulate the original hardware as accurately as possible through the use of low-level emulation, with the added ability of also using cycle-accurate emulation bsnes touts the ability to run every commercially SNES title that has been released without any bugs that were not originally in the game itself. While bsnes for the most part only emulated the SNES, upon its name change to higan has grown to now experimentally emulate the NES, Game Boy, Game Boy Color and the Game Boy Advance making it once of the more versatile emulators around, though the emulation outside of the SNES still needs more work to get to the same accuracy and capabilities. The emulator also managed to offer support for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux(Available from Debian packages)
